Hindus under attack: a weekly roundup of hate crimes, persecution, and discrimination against Hindus

Attacks on Hindus and Hindu Dharma, both in Bharat and overseas, are frequent and unrelenting. In many regions of the world, this persecution is like a genocide slowly unfolding before our eyes. For decades, the world has ignored the actual depth and breadth of these attacks, driven by disturbing anti-Hindu bigotry. From murders, forced conversions, land grabs, assault on festivals, desecration of temples and murtis, hate speech, and sexual violence to institutionalized & legal discrimination, Hindus are facing an increasing assault on their very existence along with an unprecedented Hindu hatred.

In this weekly summary for the period from 10 July to 16 July 2022, we hope to provide a snapshot of such crimes and hopefully awaken more people around the world to this human rights crisis:

Bharat

1) Three years into marriage, a love jihad victim has taken her life under suspicious circumstances in Tamil Nadu. The Hindu woman’s father has alleged that the Muslim in-laws harassed her for dowry and could have murdered her.

2) In yet another grooming case, twice married Azam Khan forced a Hindu vanvasi girl to run away with him. He intended to make her his third wife.

3) Following pressure from the Muslim community, government schools in Jharkhand’s Jamtara district have shifted the weekly holiday to Friday from Sunday, citing the Muslims being in the majority as a reason for the change.

4) Students made deadly weapons inside the Neyyatinkara Dhanuvachhapuram ITI Campus in the Thiruvananthapuram district. Students Federation of India (SFI), CPM’s student wing, students allegedly turned the study room into a weapon shop. A local TV channel released related footage.

5) Jang Bahadur hailing from UP’s (Uttar Pradesh) Amethi district, employed as a driver in Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh, is alleged to have been murdered by his Pakistan co-workers. A young Bharatiya named Arvind residing with the 43-year-old victim is reported to have broken the news to Jang Bahadur’s family members on July 6.

6) Statistics show that Islamic grooming of Hindu girls is spreading like wildfire in UP’s (Uttar Pradesh) Bareilly District. This indicates a conspiracy to deliberately trap Hindu girls, and reports state that they were pressurized to convert to Islam as all the accused were Muslim.

7) A day after spewing venom against Hindus and mocking Hindu Bhagwans and beliefs, Sarwar Chishti’s son Syed Aadil Chishti conveniently made a u-turn. He said he didn’t intend to hurt anyone’s religious beliefs or sentiments and added that he only conveyed his thoughts on Nupur Sharma’s comment. He even ‘apologized’ for his comments. He further alleged that the media played his edited video.

8) Narikuravas, the nomadic community from a village in Tamil Nadu, are facing immeasurable harassment from missionaries. Many have lost families to the soul vultures and fear losing more of their younger generation to the Abrahamic cult. Fake cases are foisted on them to suppress their voices against the threat to their freedom of speech and worship.

9) Mumbai police have arrested a man from Jammu and Kashmir after he allegedly issued death and sexual threats to a minor girl over her video on the Udaipur Killing.

10) A Hindu girl, reportedly a minor was attacked with a blade on her neck and face by a man named Mohammed Danish Khan in Uttar Pradesh’s Jhansi district.

11) Amid the VVIP presence in Kanpur Dehat, at least six persons were injured after a communal flare-up in a locality of Kanpur Nagar as members of the minority community clashed with the majority community people and also the police.

Bangladesh

Attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh are relentless and designed to gradually cleanse the religious minority from the country. According to a study by Prof. Abul Barakat of Dhaka University, no Hindus will be left in Bangladesh by 2050 due to systemic and institutionalized persecution. Temple desecration, land grabbing, mob attacks after false blasphemy charges, rape/forced conversion of women, and hate speech are some tools used to intimidate and drive Hindus out.

1) Hindu teachers are on the Islamist radar in Bangladesh.

2) Hindu family attacked by local Awami League leaders Mohammad Falan & Mohammad Mirajur Rahaman in Dhaka’s South Karaniganj on July 15 (Tweet archived).

3) More than 120 Hindu homes were attacked, of which 10 were completely burnt down in Dighaliaya on July 15 (Tweet archived).

Most hate crimes are driven by anti-Hindu bigotry encoded in certain religious teachings and political ideologies. While the anti-Hindu hate in Islamic countries is obvious, there is another subtler form of anti-Hindu sentiment within institutions and the public sphere of ostensibly secular states (like India) that provides an enabling environment for Hinduphobia and hate crimes. This subtle, everyday discrimination can be missed unless one studies prevailing laws and patterns. The gradual ban on firecrackers during Diwali is a good example – it might seem pollution-related on the surface, but the double standards at play become clear when one looks at the larger picture of restrictions on Hindu festivals and the lack of sound reasoning behind the ban.

We request all readers to share other anti-Hindu hate crimes that we might have missed in this period in the comments below or by dropping an email to [email protected] We also solicit support in the maintenance of the Hindu human rights tracker database started by us.
