India Foundation Dialogue – 85

India Foundation hosted the 85th India Foundation Dialogue on February 01, 2023 at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. The Dialogue was addressed by Ms Suhag A. Shukla, Esq., Executive Director/Co-Founder at Hindu American Foundation. The session was chaired by Mr. Come Carpentier de Gourdon, Distinguished Fellow, India Foundation. The session was themed ‘Rising Hinduphobia’ and was attended by eminent dignitaries based in the National Capital Region. The speaker, in her presentation, stated that the Indian diaspora in the United States is performing very well in economic terms, but there are rising incidences of discrimination being experienced by the American Hindu community on the basis of their religion. She presented a working definition of Hinduphobia as developed and adopted by a group of scholars and academicians at the ‘Understanding Hinduphobia’ conference held at Rutgers University in 2021 and stated that such a working definition was essential to understand the meaning of the term. Noting the rising trends in Hinduphobia across the globe, she emphasized the need for tackling such discrimination through education and awareness.
