10 reasons why ‘saffron peril’ hit-pieces reflect direct or lateral Hinduphobic racism against diaspora Hindus

10 reasons why it's either direct or lateral Hinduphobic racism that diaspora Hindus are targeted for saffron peril hitpieces:

1. White and non Bharatiya business persons and politicians who actively engage with the Bharatiya government (BJP) daily are not targeted.

2. The only white or non Bharatiya people targeted are those who are seen to identify with, support or align with Hindus and Bharat.

3. People in the West who are actively connected to and working with Bharatiya government who may or may not be South Asian, but are Muslim, Buddhist or Christian are never targeted.

4. When people are targeted it is always due to their Hinduness and real or perceived alliances with Modi.

5. The targeting is often arbitrary and pathologically suspicious, like rubbing shoulders, taking funds from sympathisers, not condemning what they are forced to condemn and for being either, Bharatiya, Hindu or supportive of either.

6. Nobody talks about how these stigmatising codes for Hindutva have lead to hundreds of political assassinations or targeted killings in Bharat.

7. Nobody talks about why it is that people who directly engage with the Modi government but are not Hindu comprise less threat than those who are Hindu and who may or may not have voted for Modi.

8. Anti Hindu hate tropes from centuries of documents are deployed by these so called journalists and experts as if subconsciously, devoid of self reflexivity or restraint. They accuse any Hindu who questions them of what they allege of the targets.

9. These stigmatising tropes are not questioned or critiqued by the editorial teams who publish these hit pieces, and are dismissed by all institutions upon complaints, begging the question of accountability to the institutions themselves.

10. Profiling, smearing and character assasinating Hindus as criminals/ supremacists/ extremists/ terrorists, particularly those of Bharatiya ancestry is unbridled Hinduphobic racism.

Mass media, academics & politicians have together normalised a dangerous double standard.
