A new report titled ‘Hindu Nationalism in the United States’ released by SACW (South Asia Citizens Web) states that US based charitable organizations are pumping billions of dollars to India's Hindu nationalist RSS & Company.
This report discusses the strategies and activities of Hindu nationalist groups in the United States. The report contains tax records, newspaper articles, and other materials on non-profit groups in the United States affiliated with the Sangh Parivar (family of Hindu nationalist groups) form 2001-2014.
According to the report, “India-based Sangh affiliates receive social and financial support from its U.S.-based wings, the latter of which exist largely as tax-exempt non-profit organizations in the United States: Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA), Sewa International USA, Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation-USA. The Overseas Friends of the Bharatiya Janata Party – USA (OFBJP) is active as well, though it is not a tax-exempt group.”
In the executive summary of the 54 page report it states; “Hindu nationalism has intensified and multiplied forms of discrimination, exclusion, and gendered and sexualized violence against Muslims, Christians, other minorities, and those who oppose Sangh violations, as documented by Indian citizens and international tribunals, fact-finding groups, international human rights organizations, and U.S. governmental bodies,”
The forefront of the Hindu nationalist movement is the Sangh Parivar network that is one of the largest voluntary associations in India, which has an estimate membership numbering millions.
A secret IB report stated that in the past couple of weeks there has been controversy in India over foreign funded NGOs, saying that it is working against the economic interest of the country. However Sangh Parivar was not mentioned in these reports.
Over the last three decades the Sangh Parivar has made a movement toward Hinduizing India.
