Destabilizing India

Its strange how Hindus have ended up with the self-demonizing/self-deprecating style of left wing in their country and in the international news/academia, etc. Notice that since forever Indians criticizing the BBC etc about their coverage on India have always been portrayed as fanatical/patronized. Which is in contrast to the way the left approaches coverage on other non-Western countries. I mean the left can easily get away with mocking Hindus or saying things that would be blasphemy by the right. India has never fit into the 'oppressed' group properly, sort of half and half and is now being portrayed as oppressor. Lovely propaganda articles by our newspapers: https://thewire.in/world/100-rights-groups-alarmed-by-rising-hindu-supremacy-in-the-us "100 US rights groups alarmed by rising Hindu supremacy in the US." 

 

The only other country with a humungous population as ours is China, which is completely 'under control' so to speak. I read somewhere that Buddhism had mind-control concepts introduced into it.

 

Gandhi also seemed to be highly promoted by the British (and possibly the Rothschild tbf) so I assume that his mentality is good for mind control as well. Indian Hindus are really not very militant. They also don't really play the victim as much. They also have a tendency to have a whopping inferiority complex and a fragile ego hence emotionality. Hence it's easy to portray them as the bad guys to erase them without much backlash, while those who do speak out looking like emotional wrecks and can be discounted. Their non-militant and self-deprecating nature mixed with inferiority complex makes them less useful to 'victimize' in Western countries because they don't play the victim as much, and some of them are somehow quite nationalistic about their host country on the other hand like Trump-voting and right-wing Indians in America.

I think Indians became "woke" before the West, because since independence (1947) all religious minorities were seen as oppressed due to being a minority, and the Hindu majority was meant to be under strict scrutiny. I mean generally the exact sort of self-righteous moral grandstanding marxist culture was present in the government, elites and intellectuals since the creation of India.

 

Anyway see how they mention racism and certain groups that are classed as the most 'oppressed' to help their propaganda (in a country where ironically Muslims have gotten extra government jobs from minority schemes under Modi):

 

Professor Ashutosh Varshney wrote some essay called 'Hindu Nationalism and the New Jim Crow,' which "draws a parallel between the political and social dynamics of Hindu nationalism in India under Narendra Modi and the policies of racial segregation during the Jim Crow era in the United States."

LMAO. https://theprint.in/india/governance/hindus-are-less-likely-to-use-a-toilet-than-muslims-in-india/44959/ I wonder whether this stat take into account the folks who don't have a toilet, or have a makeshift one I wouldnt be surprised if they didnt check for that.

Racist attitudes towards indians that will fuel demonization of hindus is encouraged. Which is sort of dangerous since imagine weaponizing racism. Hence the continuous portrayal of indians as fanatic and untrustworthy, dirty and filthy. Why is india being dirty such an important topic for the media while glossing over all the nasty stuff happening in other developing countries? Extreme racism in the sense of talking about "filthy genetics" and such about indians is often not censored on social media at least. In fact responding with the mildest "that's incredibly racist" will get you banned, your comment removed while the racist comment stays up. There is a meta subreddit on reddit for example that is populated with people that have been banned for the mildest disagreement ie literally "no 80 percent of indians dont poop on the street anymore" on the official india subreddit and elsewhere. That is an example of something I said ahaha. You ask them why you were banned and they mute you.

From: https://fcraanalyses.blogspot.com/2018/06/foreign-funding-from-protestant.html

 

In our earlier Post on Misereor, we studied the nature of funds from the Catholic Church of Germany, targeted towards developmental activities. We discussed the nature of ‘Church Tax’ in Germany, which makes the funding from Misereor different from ‘donations’ arising purely from private contributions.Similarly, the German State also works with the Protestant denominations. The secular vehicle for such funding is Bread For the World (BfW).In this article, we pick out major beneficiaries of BfW’s funding and try to present a picture of the activities they are involved in. All this information shared here is on the basis of FC4/FC6 returns available in the Government of India’s Ministry of Home Affairs’ website.

What is BfW and what does it do?

Bread for the World “is the globally active development and relief agency of the Protestant Churches in Germany”. In its website, it says “Key issues of our work are food security, the promotion of health and education, the access to water, the strengthening of democracy, respecting human rights, keeping peace and the integrity of creation.” It adds “Bread for the World considers itself part of the global Christian Community.“

Since 1962, the Catholic and the Protestant Church Development Services, i.e., Misereor and Bread for the World respectively are funded by the German Government. This funding is raised by taxes levied upon all registered churchgoers in Germany and collected and distributed by the German Federal Ministry for Development.

BfW is the organization that has been set up, and it routes this funding for development activities that are in line with the Protestant Church’s goals and objectives across the world.There is a Bread for the World office in Washington DC, USA as well. This Post does not cover its work in India and only focuses on the work carried out by Bread for the World-Germany.There was another organization called Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst, which has since been merged with BfW (August 2012). **BfW is identified by different names in FCRA returns, notable among which are Bread for the World, Brott fuer die Welt, Evangelischer Entwicklungsdienst, EED, Evangelische Zentralstelle für Entwicklungshilfe, EZE (Evangelische Zentralstelle für Entwicklungshilfe e.V) and BftW.**For the purposes of this article, we shall include all monies received from all above entities as money received from BfW.

Secular entities receiving funds from BfW

  • This Post does not cover German Protestant funding to religious work in India. Such German organizations would include Missio, various Lutheran organizations etc.

  • We can be sure that all the FCRA-NGOs listed here have had at least one remittance from BfW during this period. However, we cannot guarantee the existence of some other FCRA-NGO not in this list which too have received ‘donations’ from BfW. Thus, the total amounts presented herein should be considered as lower bounds. However, these numbers are unlikely to change much, even if one carried out a ‘better’ exercise than what is carried out here.

  • The Table above is hyperlinked to pages containing the list of FCRA-NGOs and the respective amounts they have received from Bread for the World during 2009-2015.

  • All numbers are in  Rs. Crore

  • South - (KA, KL, TS, AP, TN)

  • West - (MH, GJ, MP)

  • East - (OR, WB, JH, CG, BH)

  • North East -  (AR, AS, MN, ML, MZ, NL, TR)

  • North - (UP, HP, RJ, PJ, HR, UK, JK)

This Post combines data from the FCRA returns available at the Ministry of Home Affairs website, the Darpan Portal of Niti-Aayog and mainstream media such as Times of India, The Hindu etc.. When information on names of Chief functionaries of a FCRA-NGO are not available on Darpan portal, it sources the same from the website of FCRA-NGOs (if available). These sources are appropriately cited. We acknowledge their contribution to this Post.We also specifically acknowledge an anonymous blogger for remarkably improvising the narrative of this Post and for the graphics.Although we have taken considerable care in analysing the data, human errors in such an effort are not inconceivable. We would appreciate if you could point out any such errors. Thanks in advance.

Summary observations

Recipients of BfW are a mixed bag. Some of them are grassroots organization doing little or no advocacy, while some are active in advocacy and appear regularly in mainstream media as vocal spokespersons for a ‘secular’ agenda.

As we have always maintained, secularism cannot be divorced from the crucible in which it was synthesized, i.e., the Christian West. Many modern scholars including SN Balagangadhara and Jakob de Roover have opined on the inapplicability of secularism (European or American flavours) in India. Many traditional Hindus too have pointed out the same from a Dharmic point of view. A good fraction of the vanguards of secularism in India are, not ironically, funded by Christian organizations such as Misereor and Bread for the World. This is not to say that these are the only ‘donor’ organizations which support the work of the ‘secular’ in India. But, they are the ones taken up in this and our previous Post.As an interesting comparison, we note that between 2009-2015, BfW donated a total of Rs. 604.5 Crores, or Rs 86 crore/year on average. This can be compared to the Rs. 70 Crore p.a. ‘donated’ by its Catholic counterpart organization, Misereor and about Rs. 55 Crore p.a. ‘donated’ by Ford Foundation to our FCRA-NGOs. Thus, the German Protestant Church is comparable to Ford Foundation or the German Catholic Church in contributing to the social and political discourse in India.

All of these secular beneficiaries of both the Catholic and the Protestant German Churches are associated with various advocacy activities such as ‘Women Rights’, ‘Human Rights’, ‘Land Rights’, ‘Water Rights’, ‘Environmental Rights’.

Truly, as the Bible says, ‘Man does not live by Bread alone’

SOUTH (Listhere)

Some observations:

  • As was noted in the post on Misereor’s donees, Kerala does not get any ‘donations’ from BfW. This is assuming that Kerala has a high proportion of Muslims and Catholics. Hence, the Protestant Church may not have an interest in funding ‘development’ in this region.

  • Almost all major beneficiaries are organizations engaged in causes. Their office bearers are openly Christian and, in some important cases, members of the clergy.

  • We identify some of the causes that have been funded by BfW in Southern India

  • Social Education & Development Society (SEDS), Anantapur (AP/10120007) received approximately Rs. 7.4 Crore in this period from BfW. Among other things, it runs a school.

  • Centre for Promotion of Social Concerns (CPSC) -Madurai, TN/75940138 has received close to Rs. 70 lakh from BfW in this period. It is usually referred to as ‘People’s Watch’ in mainstream media. Henri Tiphagne is a leading personality associated with it. More about CPSC can be learnt from this Post.

  • Development Promotion Group (DPG) in Chennai is also a big recipient from BfW, having received Rs. 13 Crore from it during 2009-2015. DARPAN lists its functionaries as B. Anusuya, R. Bhakther Solomon and a Jaya Theodore. It is likely a Credit Union. Incidentally, at the same address as DPG the FCRA-NGO, there exists a Section 8 (non-profit company) called Microfinance Development Initiatives of India whose  Directors are listed as Raj Bhakther Solomon, Sulochana Solomon & Anusuya Basavarajappa.

  • Madras Christian Council of Social Service (MCCSS) has received around Rs. 4 Crore from BfW during 2009-2015. Darpan lists its functionaries as Isabel Richardson, Rev. George Stephen and Yesudial. It seems to work on Women’s Rights and ‘Empowerment’. MCCSS appears to be running a Children’s Home, from which at least one minor girl seems to have gone missing, according to this news story.

  • South Central India Network for Development Alternatives (SCINDeA) is an important FCRA-NGO and has received more than Rs. 20 Crore from BfW in this period. Their work appears to be on poverty alleviation through skills training. A Sheila Benjamin appears to be their Executive Director (their website is not clear), although Darpan portal gives a list of different names, including a Renida Sarala as its Secretary.

  • Fr. Thomas Koshy runs the Child Rights Advocacy Foundation (CRAF) Trust, AP/10260252,  in Vijayawada according to Darpan Portal, along with a Francis Thambi. CRAF received around Rs. 8 Crore from BfW in this period. Fr. Koshy is also associated with Navajeevan Bala Bhavan, Vijayawada. According to the US Public Broadcasting Service, PBS, Fr. Koshy was running more than 12 centres in Vijayawada in 2007  to rehabilitate ‘street children’.

It has received around Rs. 6.7 Crore from BfW between 2009 to 2015. Its founders are Christopher Premdas and Jyothi Premdas. It does not have a Darpan entry. It runs two Children Homes: Light of Love Children’s Home and New Life Children’s Home.

  • Centre for World Solidarity (CWS), TS/10230305, is a big FCRA-NGO in Secunderabad. During 2009-2015, it has received more than Rs. 13 Crore from BfW.

Apart from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, they have operations in Tamil Nadu, Jharkhand, Odisha and Bihar. They work on RTE, empowerment of SC/ST/women etc. Dr. Gnana Prakasam is also a signatory to a statement condemning the actions on Lawyers Collective by MHA for alleged FCRA violations.

Its Board is headed by Prof. GS Aurora and Dr. Shantha Sinha (first NCPCR head) is a Member. DDS opposes GM crops.

  • As was noted in the post on Misereor’s donees, Kerala does not get any ‘donations’ from BfW. Kerala is already a ‘mature’ state. Thus, it does not require to be funded by the likes of Misereor or Bread for the World.

  • Mention must be made of Bengaluru’s Equitable Tourism Options, KA/94420364 which has received Rs. 2.3 Crore during 2009-2015 from BfW. It is usually referred to as EQUATIONS. It co-produced a report opposing many aspects of our Amarnath Yatra. To learn more about this, read this Post.

  • Tamilnadu Theological Seminary (TTS) is in Madurai, TN/75940046 and has received a total of Rs. 16 lakh only during 2009-2015. Yet, it is an important FCRA-NGO and we shall use this opportunity to learn about some aspects of it. Affiliated to India’s first University, Serampore (Srirampur, Kolkata) University, TTS offers degree and post-graduate degree programmes in Christian theology. Gabriele Dietrich who is part of the National Alliance for People’s Movements (NAPM)  (a ‘secular’ activist organization) used to teach Social Analysis and Feminist Theology in TTS (see 1 and 2). She was also a signatory to a petition supporting the Mercy plea of Yakub Memon.  In 2013, Times of India  reported that one of TTS’ senior Professor was accused of harassing a girl student from Manipur and a case was filed.

  • Samvada (KA/94420671) advocates for youth rights. It does not have an entry in Darpan Portal. It has received Rs. 3.6 Crore from BfW in this period. Apart from BfW, it receives funds from Misereor, American and Jewish World Service. Its role appears to nurture/prepare youth for roles in NGOs and for activism. According to this interview with its functionary  in The Hindu, Samvada’s students have participated in the Narmada Bachao Andolan, Tehri dam protests etc. In Kannada, it is also usually referred to as Samvada Baduku.

  • Rural Education for Development Society (REDS) is in Tumkur, Karnataka KA/94640009. It supposedly works for the Scheduled Castes. Its functionary also appears to be a Co-Director in a Sec. 8 company called Cosmic Rumble whose CIN=U93000KA2012NPL063753 and whose address is the same as that of REDS. Check https://www.partos.nl/documents/IN-CSS-REDS.pdf

  • Society for Rural Education & Development (SRED) is in Arakkonam, Tamil Nadu and is run by Arputhammal, Alphonsa, Shanthi & Esther Devakumari. It works on Women’s Rights and Human Rights.

  • Human Rights Advocacy & Research Foundation (HRARF), TN/75900776 appears quite regularly in mainstream media, in particular, in Chennai’s The Hindu. According to Darpan, HRARF’s functionaries are Annie Namala, Paul Divakar Namala and Ruth Manorama. Annie Namala was a member of the National Advisory Committee (NAC) in 2011 and was in-charge of the implementation of the RTE Act. She is also the Chief functionary in Centre for Social Equity and Inclusion (CSEI), DL/231661444. Paul Divakar Namala is regularly quoted in mainstream media on any story related to Scheduled Castes, as one representing an organization called NCDHR (see here and here). NCDHR is co-located with Swadhikar which is a FCRA-NGO, DL/231661023. In 2014, a candidate named Ruth Manorama stood for Lok Sabha elections from Bangalore(South). It is not clear if the candidate and the person in the FCRA-NGO are the same. In 2017, HRARF announced a one-minute film making competition on the topic ‘Women and Freedom’. In collaboration with Ethiraj College, Chennai, it organized a speaking competition on ‘protection of women’.

  • Tamil Nadu Rural Reconstruction Movement, TN/75940141 is run by Mohan Larbeer, and Helen Stoffer. It appears to be part of INSAF (INSAF lost its FCRA registration recently) and is also a partner in Coastal Action Network which is run by Jesu Rathinam & Ossie Fernandes. Jesu Rethinam filed a case in Madras High Court against Tamil Nadu Government's Coastal Zone Management Plan in April 2018.https://twitter.com/by2kaafi/status/988236330520924160

  • Although Palmyrah Workers Development Society has received substantial sums from BfW, no trustworthy public domain information on its Chief Functionaries exist.

  • LAYA of Visakhapatnam receives ‘donations’ from the Catholic organization, Misereor and also from the Protestant BfW -- both being in Germany. LAYA is already covered in this Post.

  • Asmita Resource Centre for Women-Secunderabad TS/10230315, a women’s rights organization is also a recipient of funds from BfW. Kalpana Kannabiran (KK) is one of its founders. KK currently heads Council for Social Development-Hyderabad which too is a FCRA-NGO, DL/231650559.

  • An organization named just “Service Society” in Bengaluru (KA/94420293) is also a big recipient from BfW (about Rs. 4.0 Crore in this period). Curiously, its address in the FCRA database matches a well known personality’s address provided in this NHRC document & whose name has appeared in this Post earlier and who has also stood for Parliamentary elections earlier. Service Society does not have a Darpan entry.

  • Timbaktu Collective (KA/94420621) is a major recipient of BfW’s funds. It works on ‘sustainable development’.

WEST (MH,GJ, MP)

  • Youth for Unity & Voluntary Action (YUVA)-Navi Mumbai (MH/83850025) has received just Rs. 6 lakh from BfW in this period. However, it is an important and a big FCRA-NGO whose 2016-17 total foreign funds was Rs. 2.8 Crore.

Darpan lists its functionaries as Mohan Surve and Archana Shrivastava. It supposedly works on human rights paradigm and focuses on Poverty, Environment and Governance.However, their website lists the Board President as Amitabh Behar.  Mr. Behar is related to many FCRA-NGOs. Recently, he became the CEO of Oxfam-India (DL/231661035).  Centre for Budget and Governance Accountability (DL/231661020) lists him as Secretary (although Darpan does not have his name for CBGA). In 2015, he was also the Executive Director of National Foundation for India (DL/231650642). This article by MD Nalapat throws more light on this individual.A Ms. Roshni Nuggehalli is given as the Executive Director.Minar Pimple is described as the Founder of YUVA. Incidentally, he is also associated with Amnesty India, more details of which can be seen here and is also a Senior Executive in Amnesty International.

Everyone agrees that Maharashtra Government’s Jal Yukt Shivar programme has been a huge success in replenishing ground water table and redressing water related issues to a good extent. However, mainstream media has carried articles in the past, which portray this programme in bad light. In one of these stories, a NGO called SANDRP is mentioned. (see here). SANDRP is a network of NGOs, one of which is YUVA.  Darpan provides names of Mohan Surve and Archana Srivastava only.

  • Socio-legal Information Centre-Mumbai is popularly referred to as Human Rights Law Network (HRLN) in the media. It was founded by Colin Gonsalves who recently received an international award touted as ‘the alternate Nobel’. SLIC/HRLN received about Rs. 5.3 Crore from BfW. SLIC/HRLN is also a recipient of funds from Open Society Foundations, and more on that can be read here.

Mr Gonsalves and SLIC/HRLN is a leading organization in legal activism and advocacy.

  • Located in Ahmednagar, Watershed Organization Trust, MH/83720075 received a sizeable sum of Rs. 7.2 Crore from BfW in the period of interest. According to Darpan, its chief functionaries are Marcella d'Souza, Basak, & Lobo.

  • Sahr Waru Womens Action & Resource Unit-Ahmedabad is run by Sheba George Lakdawala, M.M. Menon, Uma Oza etc. It works for equality and justice. Its Director, Sheba George is one of the eminent signatories of a petition to the President of India seeking consideration of Yakub Memon’s mercy plea.

  • Located in Morena, Mahatma Gandhi Seva Ashram has received around Rs. 6.6 Crore from BfW in this period. It works for the empowerment of the needy.

  • Jan Vikas, (GJ/41910132) of Gagan Sethi is also a recipient of funds from BfW. The recent news on the denial of entry to a former Swiss diplomat who was planning to visit Mr. Sethi is relevant in this regard. However, Darpan portal provides only the names of Jan Vikas’ Board members and Gagan Sethi’s name is not mentioned. We trust MSM source here than that of the badly maintained Darpan portal of Niti Aayog.

DELHI

Delhi, the centre of political power in India, is by far the biggest recipient of funds. It has garnered Rs 255.8 Crores, or 42% of the funds over the years. Needless to state, FCRA-NGOs in Delhi will likely spend their ‘donations’ elsewhere and/or remit it to other FCRA-NGOs located elsewhere in the country. There are some very prominent names from Indian civil society that figure among the beneficiaries.

  • Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), DL/231650302, founded and run by Sunita Narain has received around Rs. 24 Crore from BfW in this period. As an aside, Ms Narain does not figure in the list of office bearers of CSE as listed in the Darpan portal.

  • Navdanya Trust (DL/231650760) has received about Rs. 4.5 Crore from BfW during 2009-2015. It was founded by Ms Vandana Shiva, the eminent environmentalist. NT does not have a Darpan entry.

  • Voluntary Action Network of India (VANI) is a meta FCRA-NGO, i.e., one which shepherds/guides other FCRA-NGOs on FCRA rules etc. It has received about Rs. 2.1 Crore from BfW alone in this period. It is an organization which is very important in the NGO sector of India. According to Darpan, its CEO is Harsh Jaitli. Its chair is Mathew Cherian, head of Helpage India, DL/231650010, and Member is Amitabh Behar.

  • Nobel laureate, Kailash Satyarthi, who founded Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) has a family of organizations that receive funds from BfW.

BBA is the an organization, for which the legal entity is Association for Voluntary Action (AVA), DL/231650169, that has received around Rs. 1.85 Crore during 2009-2015.In 2015, a new FCRA-NGO has been established, called Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (DL/231661122) whose alias appears to be ‘Save the Childhood Foundation’.There is also a Global March India Foundation, DL/231660984, which too seems to be associated with Kailash Satyarthi.

  • Smt Lalita Ramdas, married to retired Admiral L Ramdas, has founded Ankur Society For Alternatives In Education (ASAE) which has received about Rs. 2.6 Crore in this time period from BfW. This claim is made by Greenpeace India in this video

  • Church’s Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA), DL/231650047 is run by Bishop Dr. Suneel Bhanu, Sushant Agarwal & Esther Farida Nath (according to Darpan). CASA calls itself as an Organization working for ‘a just and sustainable society’. Established in 1947, it sees itself as a National development and humanitarian organization. CASA is the humanitarian and development arm of 24 Protestant and Orthodox Churches in India. Being a large FCRA-NGO, CASA in turn ‘donates’ its foreign funds to many other FCRA-NGOs as well. CASA is also well known for having constructed houses for Tsunami affected people, very close to the Kudankulam nuclear plant.

  • Jagori (DL/231650137) works on women’s issues from a feminist point of view. To give you an idea of its work, check out this news story  where one of Jagori’s survey work is cited. Donors to Jagori other than Bread for the World are: Misereor (Germany’s Catholic Development Org), Dan Church Aid (Denmark), Action Aid etc. Although it had an unspent amount of Rs. 1.4 Crore (from past foreign ‘donations’) in 2015-16, it received a fresh inflow of Rs. 3.3 Crore from abroad. We have seen how FCRA-NGOs are sitting on a huge pile of unspent amount in one of our earlier Posts. Interestingly, Pamela Phillipose (Public Editor of The Wire and a columnist of The Indian Express) and Martin Macwan (Navsarjan) are on its Executive Committee. In 2015-16, Jagori received Rs. 68 lakh from Misereor. In 2015-16, Jagori received Rs. 67 lakh from Misereor.

  • Indian Social Action Forum (INSAF), Delhi (DL/231660846) received  approximately Rs. 5.4 Crore from BfW in this period. It is popularly called as INSAF. Its application for renewal of FCRA registration was denied recently and INSAF has filed a plea in Delhi High Court against the refusal. These two news stories (1 and 2) both mention Anil Chaudhary as being part of INSAF. INSAF does not have a Darpan entry.

  • Financial Management Service Foundation (FMSF) (DL/231650985) too is a meta FCRA-NGO. It has received a substantial sum of about Rs. 14.3 Crore from BfW in this period. According to Darpan, its Executive Director is Dr. Sanjay Patra who is also listed as the Treasurer of Evangelical Fellowship of India (DL/231650058) on the Darpan portal. Prof. Virginius Xaxa, former member of the National Advisory Council (NAC) (during the UPA period) is also a Trustee of FMSF.

  • The National Alliance of Women (NAWO) (DL/231660126) has received about Rs. 1.8 Crore from BfW in this period. It is not listed in the Darpan portal and seems not to have a website either. At some point in time, Dr. Ruth Manorama was the President of NAWO.

  • Institute for Social Democracy is one of the many bizarrely named FCRA-NGOs dotting Delhi. It has received Rs. 5.2 Crore from BfW between 2009-2015. Material on its website makes it appear to be some sort of a leftist organization. It claims to work on ‘a composite heritage of South Asia’. Its chief functionary is a Shruti Chaturvedi, although Darpan provides three other names.

  • Swadhikar (DL/231661023) has received about Rs. 1.3 Crore from BfW. As per this letter, Swadhikar and National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) are almost the same entities and is headed by Paul Divakar Namala (PDN). In mainstream media, PDN is always written as head of NCDHR (which is neither in the FCRA list, nor in the Darpan list) and Swadhikar (the name by which it is registered in FCRA) is not mentioned. Swadhikar was featured in this brilliant article on RTE on Indiafacts. Swadhikar is not listed (yet) on Darpan.

  • Programme on Womens Economic Social and Cultural Rights (PWESCR) is DL/231661085 and has received Rs. 4.9 Crore from BfW in this period. It is not listed on Darpan, but its website says that it is headed by a Priti Darooka (PD). It is an advocacy and educational organization for women. Priti Darooka who had earlier worked in Ford Foundation seems to have founded it. Gagan Sethi (vide infra) is also part of its Board. PWESCR supposedly works on Women’s Rights. In 2015-16, it received a total of Rs. 1.5 Crore from BfW, South Asia Womens Fund-Sri Lanka (!), The Finnish NGO Foundation for Human Rights, Heinrich Boell Foundation etc..

  • There is a Centre for Education and Communication (CEC) in Delhi, DL/231650113 which has received funds from BfW only in 2006. However, let us not lose the opportunity to learn more about it. Our interest in CEC was piqued by one of its donor in 2015-16, an organization called ‘International Justice Mission’ (IJM). This is not the place to elaborate on IJM though. Given its links to IJM, it comes as no surprise that CEC works on so-called eradication of bonded labour. CEC has also received, on a regular basis, ‘donations’ from a UK based organization called ‘Anti Slavery International (ASI)’ which claims in its 2017 annual report to UK’s Charity Commission  that it co-developed the National Domestic Workers Welfare Bill (Bill No. 204 of 2016) that has been tabled in our Lok Sabha by Member of Parliament, Shashi Tharoor. Darpan portal does not have any information on CEC, so we will have to depend on CEC’s website. Its Governing Board has Duarte Barreto, J. John, Dominic D’Souza, and Rev. Ernest Deenadayalan. The last person (ED) is the head of ‘The Other Media’ (DL/231660085) whose team has been active in writing against several industrial & wetland projects in coastal Tamil Nadu.

  • Popular Education and Action Centre (PEACE) is in New Delhi, DL/231650912 and has received Rs. 8.5 Crore from BfW in the period of study. Darpan portal gives its Deputy Managing Trustee as a Balaji Pandey and Aanchal Kapur and Kanchan Bhandari as Trustees.

  • However, many mainstream media stories mention a Anil Chaudhary as PEACE’s head. PEACE’s FC4 return itself is signed by Mr. Chaudhary, as the signature is quite clear.

  • PEACE’s other donors include:

Asha for Education,Unitarian Universalist Association-USA,Global Greengrants Fund-USA,Fund for Global Human Rights-USA,Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights-USA,Sathi All for Partnerships-Delhi etc.

  • PEACE too figured in the Indian Express news article of June 2014, titled “Six Delhi NGOs in IB Watchlist”. However, PEACE’s FCRA is still intact and it continues to receive foreign donations. For instance, it received a total sum of Rs. 2.1 Crore in 2016-17. This Note, opposing the purchase of land by Indian agricultural majors in Ethiopia was prepared by three FCRA-NGOs, one of whom is PEACE. On its website, PEACE claims to run training for “field-based social action groups focused on a variety of issues like land, forest, and water rights across the country.”

Modi made the SC/ST (lower caste) Atrocities Act which makes Brahmins accused of casteism guilty until proven innocent more stringent. Multiple people have committed suicide after being threatened with a false case: https://neopolitico.com/uncategorized/dalits-threatened-to-file-a-false-sc-st-act-boy-ends-life

 

This same Modi is getting criticism from the international media for being "anti-dalit"

 

 As many as 8,900 cases were found to be "false or mistake of fact or law" under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act in 2015, with more than half of them being reported from Rajasthan. Referring to the data of National Crime Records Bureau in this regard, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Vijay Sampla said that Andhra Pradesh has reported second highest number, 1,099 cases while Bihar recorded 64 cases under the category in 2015.Telangana reported 477 such cases while Uttar Pradesh 400. In 2014, the total number of cases stood at 9,704 with Rajasthan reporting the highest number at 5,018 under the category of "false/mistake of fact or law" followed by Andhra Pradesh (957) and Bihar (670).

https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/8900-cases-under-sc/st-act-found-false-in-2016-government/articleshow/55690780.cms?from=mdr

To give perspective of what percentage of total cases filed under SC/ST act the above numbers represent:

As many as 38,510 cases were registered in 2015 under the Act and charge sheets were registered in 26,922 of these cases, the conviction rate being 27.2%. In 2014, altogether 40,208 cases were registered. Charge sheets were filed in 29,248 of the cases and the conviction was rate was 28.4%.

https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/conviction-under-scst-act-just-27-in-2014-16/article24545267.ece

In 2019, Similarly, the number of cases related to the Scheduled Caste/Scheduled Tribe (Prevention of Atrocities) Act also saw a rise. The police have noted that the percentage of fake cases under the SC/ST Act too has increased. Half of the cases (51 per cent in connection with SCs and 50 per cent with STs) were found to be fake during investigation, he said.

https://www.outlookindia.com/newsscroll/crimes-against-women-in-2019-up-nearly-50-per-cent-in-rajasthan/1701891

There are caste based atrocities going on and laws to alleviate them are being used in a major way to cause more caste based atrocities. Both aspects should be included in the conversation for justice ahead.

PS: An old article from 8 months back worth linking.

ANI UP on Twitter: Firozabad: People are selling homes in Gothua village allegedly due to registration of fake cases under the SC/ST Act against them. A villager says, "Every year,fake cases are lodged against us under SC/ST Act over trivial issues.We are fed up with it & want to leave the village"

India is the only society where erstwhite rulers (Christians and Muslims) have been given special treatment

 

Muslims ruled over Karnataka for 100s of years. 34% of Karnataka Muslims are elite Ashrafs who had even owned Hindu slaves in the past. They are wealthier than average General Hindus and not backward by any stretch of imagination.

 

The Karnataka Congress Government has categorized ALL Muslims as a backward caste for reservation (50% reservations in universities and gov jobs go to backward castes). Hindu OBCs would be deprived of their share. To incorporate such a large community under reservation, reservation slabs may be increased further, ruining the future of General Category Hindus.

Ashrafs are upper caste Muslims who consider themselves direct 'descendants' of Islamic invaders. Notice how even more effed Hindus are due to the Caste Atrocities act where any upper caste who is accused of a hate crime against a lower caste is guilty until proven innocent. Also, even Africa has the caste system. But India is so famous for it. The oldest caste system is in Ethiopia. Igbo and all that are sections of a caste system.

Interesting reading.  I used to read that the caste system was exclusively a Hindu thing, and that the Dalit untouchables were being converted to Ambedkar's Buddhism to escape it. But if caste is much broader then it could be just anti-Hindu propaganda.

It's not that caste isn't bad and it doesn't still exist in India, it's just that it was weaponized by Christian missionaries. Christianity wasn't any better. Even in India we have a history of Christians burning heathens at the stake in Goa, burning down Hindu temples, they did the whacky ritualistic medieval torture to blasphemers and cut off some dude's ears and sewed on a dog's ears like the Nazis. The excessive focus on the Hindu caste system comes from salty Christian missionaries who couldn't convert Hindus. Most of Africa is Abrahamic religions now, and I don't think they could be easily publicly demonized anyway due to them being "untouchable" (not THAT kind of untouchable) by the left.

 

Caste existed in some point in Japan as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burakumin Still does to some degree

 

There's this post showing a perspective on how Buddhism was politicized to demonize Hinduism: https://bharatabharati.in/2019/01/29/how-the-buddha-was-made-out-to-be-anti-hindu-koenraad-elst/

 

Notwithstanding pretty rigid "classes" which didn't want to mix with those lower class existed throughout the world, the one in India (throughout all religions nowadays including Islam and Christianity who adopted it) being more rigid and long-standing possibly. Any civilizations which has rulers, leaders, monarchs, emperors, feudal lords etc will definitely have royalty and upper status compared to the ministers and common public. Rome, Egypt, everywhere had something similar.

 

Isabel Wilkerson (who is black) wrote Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, which argues that racial stratification in the United States is best understood as a caste system, akin to those in India and in Nazi Germany. The New York Times calling it "an instant American classic", and Publishers Weekly calling it a “powerful and extraordinarily timely social history.” The book reached the number one spot in The New York Times nonfiction best-seller list. Lots of books getting published which open the doors for demonizing Hindus further.

I'm afraid that monotheism has a history of intolerance and supremacism and after "the left" took over Europe Christianity started to become more outwardly tolerant.  The heathen religion today is only acceptable to the ptb in its universalist form which accepts the creed of diversity and multiculturalism - but folkish heathens who want to keep a link with their ancestors and tribal roots are demonised just as the so-called far right. 

  

Feudalism was our caste system, introduced by the brotherhood Normans who essentially made the conquered tribes of Celts and Anglo-Saxons into the serfs and themselves into aristocrats. But yeah, stratification of society carried on after feudalism officially ended. We still have the aristocracy and monarchy after all.  I can see how the USA has a class/caste system in practice while kidding themselves they don't.

The left seems to hate Christianity in the United States but directly collaborates with the Christian right when it comes to demonizing Hinduism or funds genuine fundamentalist Christians organizations in India. Also somehow persecution of Christians still gets more coverage than persecution of Hindus. I wonder what they're up to. I guess Christianity doesn't fit their purposes in the US or maybe it's to destabilize.

 

I do believe there's an implicit hierarchy in the US, but I'm not exactly a fan of Isabel Wilkerson's mostly because her book sensationalizes the caste system. Oprah Winfrey sent her book to 100 CEOs. https://theprint.in/opinion/oprah-winfrey-wilkerson-caste-100-us-ceos-indians-wont-talk-about-it/487143/ Stuff like this paves the way for "anti caste-discrimination" laws in the US which further demonizes Indians and Hindus, and in my opinion would be misused by all kinds of activist organizations and lobbies. It's the enemy of your enemy is your friend where Dalits join up with Muslim extremists who team up with Khalistanis and Christian missionairies. Most people are completely ignorant about the forces up against Hindus or the 'wokeism' ingrained in our culture (and probably don't care either) hence every accusation will be taken at face value. Hindus don't have any 'friends' here. Indian Muslims, having absorbed the problems of Hindu society, have become more casteist than actual Hindus ironically now, but they still team up with Dalits. In the US Indians are the easy game group hence it makes them easy to scapegoat unfortunately. About the enemy of your enemy is your friend, recently I saw on the Assam subreddit some Christians doing some literal scheming saying "ideally we could annihilate Hindus and Muslims completely, but we'll have to play the whole 'we're the same' card to get them on our side." And then talking about how Christian conversions are full swing in Punjab and how they can pretend to be oppressed under Modi in the United States because of the whole woke thing and get citizenship" and how they could align with Europe by making Assam more Christian. They were probably Assam separatists. That's what I mean by the whole 'independent Assam, Kashmir" freedom fighting etc being a bad idea for the minorities there, because there's usually a religious angle to it as well. (With Kashmir its Muslims, with Southern, and North Eastern states it's Christianity and with Punjab it's Sikhism)

Somehow when the Hindus are victims, its still used as a way to portray them as oppressors in India. There's tons of "Islamophobia" "Muslim lives matter" hashtags trending in India as well

 

“The thing with a message like Hindu Lives Matter, is that it has to be read within this broader infrastructure of messages that are calling for Muslim genocide,” says Mohan Dutta, professor at Massey University in New Zealand, who has researched anti-Muslim hate in India.

 

I absolutely detest Yogi Adityanath to hell but there's also this false quote going around attributed to this guy in the Western media which will undoubtedly be used against Hindus in the US: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/times-fact-check/news/fake-alert-no-cm-yogi-never-said-rape-dead-muslim-women-tmcs-abhishek-banerjee-lied/articleshow/78292615.cms

It's interesting to see how Frankfurt school critical theory is used around the world. Whites in their homelands are demonised as supremacist unless they agree to mass immigration of non-whites - or even if we do we still have to ritually debase ourselves by bending the knee and admitting to institutional racism etc anyway - but don't get a free pass in countries where we're the minority.  Christians are attacked if they're white but the black churches are allowed off the hook.  From what I've seen in this thread it looks like Hindus are taking the same treatment in their homeland; but when Hindus are in a minority like the UK, they're not targeted as much at the moment because the priority is to demoralise whites so you haven't had the cabal's 'eye of Sauron' focused on you yet here. No doubt it will change in future when whites are a vestigal minority and no longer a potential threat to this agenda. But I don't see Muslims treated the same way in the huge swathe of countries where they're the majority and have no problem being criticised for their treatment of other religions (especially "pagan" polytheists), women, LGBT etc.   Maybe Islam is already agenda-compliant and not a challenge to the Illuminati.

They're trying to balance both their agendas. At this point the West is being severely displaced by immigrants and India is probably at the brink of an explosive civil war due to the left wing ecosystem pulling at people from all sides. In India we have Western educated "intellectuals" and "rationalists" who essentially warble word salad about how Indians and Hindus are inferior (and are usually funded by foreign Christian missionairies). And most Indians are pretty emotional and not great with the logic hence react with emotional cavemen grunts which make us look like idiots. Sneering about "intellectuals" is a thing Indians have

https://www.opindia.com/2024/03/how-left-liberals-over-intellectualise-to-project-holier-than-thou-approach-against-hindu-sentiments/

 

Indians in general are sort of seen as 'semi-oppressed' in the UK due to British colonialism, but the continued media narratives about "Hindutva going global" and pairing up with white supremacists in the West isn't a good sign. 

 

 https://thewire.in/world/100-rights-groups-alarmed-by-rising-hindu-supremacy-in-the-us

https://www.aljazeera.com/opinions/2018/12/13/why-white-supremacists-and-hindu-nationalists-are-so-alikehttps___cdn.evbuc_.com_images_144547121_567328472453_1_original(1).jpg.6bb1a813a4fc268a7b47cd52fb10d666.jpg

See: "Hindutva and white supremacy"

 

There do seem to be a lot of right wing Hindus in the US and UK, probably because the left wing is more antagonistic to Indians and Hindus.

Indians are more and more the 'inconvenient' minority in the West for the shadow governments.

Hindus are being lumped with white people hence we have a relatively right wing (not extreme right wing, just critical of the left) giving Indians the time of day. 

 

https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/09/27/when-are-we-going-to-talk-about-hinduphobia/ Hindus got the raw end of the deal in the media with the Leicester riots. 

 

Quote

In woke circles, it has been open season on the Hindu community for some time. The Guardian has published articles saying Indian Hindus played the role of a ‘subordinate ruling class’ and ‘subcolonial agents’ in East Africa and apparently this is why so many of them now feel an affinity with the Tory party. The Guardian also notoriously published a cartoon depicting Priti Patel as a cow with a ring through her nose. And who can forget when Patel was accused by a group of Labour MPs of ‘using’ her ‘heritage and experiences of racism’ to silence the discussion about racism against black people? 

Apparently many left-wingers in the UK genuinely believe due to the media that the RSS or Hindutva had something to do with it because if it's the left wing media any stance they have must be unbiased and highly moral. https://henryjacksonsociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/CRTLeicesterFinalReport-FINAL-VERSION.pdf

 

I'm not entirely sure what their deal with Christianity is in the US though, perhaps it's to create a juxtaposition with Islam or cause anger in Christians. White people are the lowest on the "victim hierarchy", while Indians are the next step above, then probably East Asians. Black people and Muslims have been put highest in the "victim hierarchy" (sounds idiotic I know), so they're not eligible for criticism. Yeah, not sure why. On the other hand, Indians are just above black people in the "status" hierarchy of most countries and possibly overall, considering how Indians get treated in East Asia, the Middle East or Latin Americas. Double whammy. The United States is politically correct with black people due to slavery but masks off when it comes to Indians. Ironically I'd wager the UK is one of the least racist countries towards Indians (if we're minussing the British media).

The cabal want Modi to win. One of the reasons could be because without Modi they wouldn't be able to so aggressively portray India as spiralling out of control. They're doing all kinds of psy-ops on TV so that people move away from Modi's opposition (which I'm not sure happens in Western countries) but then the mainstream media talking about how we're becoming 'fascist' with glee. https://www.nytimes.com/2024/04/18/opinion/india-election-modi-religion.html  No one can be sure, but with India "going rogue" (as they said with the Khalistani killing in Canada), then it's possible that a justification is being created to impose a severe penalty on India. Not sure. Notice Modi is doing some things differently, but he's still giving special treatment to minorities and not doing anything to help Hindus. People are blindly trusting whatever bullshit scheme he comes up with, thinking there must be a good reason for it. 

 

Ayodhya has become a hot topic but 80 Hindu temples were razed down by Modi for encroaching . https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/80-temples-demolished-in-modis-capital/articleshow/3706244.cms

Peter Friedrich, as I showed before on his site if you look at the waybackmachine is basically a Christian missionary disguised as a South Asian affairs activist. He's affiliated with an anti-India activist group called Organization for Minorities of India (OMFI). This organization was founded by Bhajan Singh Bhinder, who was the subject of an undercover US Customs Service investigation for trying to purchase C-4 plastic explosives, M-16s, AK-47s, grenade and rocket launchers, and Stinger missiles in support of the separatist Khalistan movement seeking to have Punjab secede from India. Ro Khanna’s parents are from Punjab. Pieter Friedrich has been OFMI’s spokesperson for a long time, and Bhinder has also served as a spokesperson for the “Sikh Youth of America”, a radical organization that glorifies Khalistani terror and has alleged ties with the International Sikh Youth Federation, a US Department of State designated terrorist organization under E.O. 13224. 

 

Friedrich attended OFMI-hosted protests denigrating the Hindu respect for cows through slogans and signs such as: “Don’t throw a fit but cow culture is bullshit.” “We don’t drink pee in the land of the free.” 

He, under OFMI’s banner, has also dedicated considerable time and resources on campaigns to force the removal of Mahatma Gandhi statutes across US, making outlandish yet easily refuted claims that the icon of the non-violence movement “allied himself with Adolf Hitler.”

 

According to HAF, he testified several times at the California State Board Education between 2015-2017 denigrating the Hindu religion, Hindu American activism, and promoting the inclusion of negative stereotypes on Hinduism in California textbooks.

 

He has also promoted an absurd equivalency between the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh and the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan.

Lastly, as indicated in the images included here, Friedrich has led aggressive, public protests and online attacks against Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and other Hindu American congressmen, alleging foreign funding, dual loyalty, and their promotion of violence against minorities in India without any evidence and, worse yet, contravening publicly available evidence to the contrary.

Recently watching the news and Congress MP says "Injustice to southern states may compel demand for separate nation for the South". There is no injustice towards them, the main problem is the portrayal of them as a 'victim' to divide and rule, portraying the Dravidian languages and identity as underrepresented. its related to the a sort of righteous moral victimhood in which dravidian languages are superior but not getting the time of day. this is where the colonialism actually caused problems, it first created the north/south divide, divides which are now being weaponized by the politicians to divide and rule still. 

 

In the Indian context Hindus are cast as “oppressors, racists, unfair,” and Muslims, Christians, secularists, Khalistanis, feminists, Dalits, or whatever other “non-Hindu” “minority” group are presented as “victims”. The end. The counter narrative has not been undertaken in any depth or with any consistency because Hindus/others who wish to challenge this narrative are effectively shut out of all debate in the major, powerful academic institutions  as well as in India, and their voices are stifled or mocked in the media outlets around the world. 

 

Writing about the communists and the Indian academic establishment that provided a haven for the communists, shourie says:

 

“They have made India out to have been an empty land, filled by successive invaders. They have made present-day India, and Hinduism even more so, out to be a zoo — an agglomeration of assorted, disparate specimens. No such thing as ‘India’, just a geographical expression, just a construct of the British; no such than as Hinduism, just a word used by Arabs to describe the assortment they encountered, just an invention of the communalists to impose a uniformity — that has been their stance. For this they have blackened the Hindu period of our history, and, as we shall see, strained to whitewash the Islamic period. They have denounced ancient India’s social system as the epitomy (sic) of oppression, and made totalitarian ideologies out to be egalitarian and just. They have belittled our ancient culture and exaggerated syncretistic elements which survived and made them out to have been an entire ‘culture’, the ‘composite culture’ as they call it”.

 

there was a recent quote like that from rahul gandhi. 'india isnt a nation, just a bunch of separate states'

 

hitler actually was a form of socialist at his time, whats to say he wasnt the real form of socialist, although he reviled some other types of socialists. just cos he jailed them doesnt mean he wasnt one himself.

The BJP RSS have imported the global left’s agenda to destroy family values and atomise the individual so that they can be easily controlled by the state. This includes stringent martial rape laws, saying marriage is just a civil contract like any other, sex education including cabal-form LGBT indoctrination to small children, co-ordinated action by all ministries to implement woke values into Hindu families to destroy the traditional Hindu family. The BJP want to rewrite Hindu shastras to suit LGBT philosophy. The BJP RSS organisations lead by senior party members and central ministers went to court against Diwali. The BJP have launched a campaign to remove dharma gurus like Shankaracharyas.

 

The Muslim population is 14.2%. Yet 35% of central scheme beneficiaries are muslims under the BJP. Immense resources across many ministries are spent on muslims by BJP at centre and state while Hindus get nothing. BJP governments have also made several muslims and christian communities OBCs giving them advantage of reservations. The BJP doubled muslims in civil services and police since 2014. 

 

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat launched and endorsed Khwaja Iftikar’s book “A meeting of minds” in July 2021. The book’s main premise is that since Islam is god’s word muslims cannot give up any part of it, but since Hindus say they religion is just a way of life, they should give it up. 

 

Ayodhya happened due to the Supreme court. If the BJP claims credit for it, then they must be held accountable for all the anti-Hindu judgements of the Supreme Court. Further, they twisted the SC judgement, kabjafied Ram Mandir and converted it into a private Temple of Sanghis. Article 370 is not a Hindu issue. It is a constitutional issue. Its removal has not made any difference to the victims of Hindu genocide in Kashmir nor the Kashmir Hindus could go back.

One of the proofs against the colonial-origin narratives that Hindus were invaded by white-skinned Aryans who brought the caste system as a racial hierarchy, and made the dark-skinned Indians lower castes, which is being weaponized currently to paint Hinduism as Nazism and oppresson/slavery and Hindus as inherently racist. Krishna means black, and he's revered. As was Ram (which is India's Jesus Christ). Krishna was indeed dark-skinned (blue was meant to depict dark skin). Many of our gods were dark skinned. We had plenty of extremely dark skinned positive characters in our mythology, which some Congress dude recently used to "prove" that black people were an immigrant to India.

 

For example Drauapadi from Mahabaratha: "The fire-born woman was extremely beautiful. Her eyes were black and large as lotus-petals, her complexion was dark, and her locks were blue and curly.

I think one of the funniest things I've seen among these crooked academics is, whenever Indians in general are being genuinely insulted or receiving backlash as a result of their continuous propaganda (such as Tulsi Gabbard posted an incident where some Indian girl in the US who got denied a cab because of what was "happening" in Kashmir), the academic will post a think piece on NYT or something saying "How the Hindu right uses cries of bigotry and "Hinduphobia" to dissuade talk about Hindutva", but THEYLL PLAY THE RACE/GENDER CARD even though they know white people have the highest status in India and use it to their benefit around the left. "I am not being listened to due to my religion (Jewish) (great cover), being white, and gender." WTF. This "Jewish" academic's family are Christian missionairies.

 

Anyway, due to all this insitutional bias against Hindus in academia/education etc, and no one except Hindus knowing the subtle nature of it, Hindus have coined the term "Hinduphobia". Not saying that LEGISLATION should exist, and there would be no thought for it if there wasn't such an uphill battle for Hindus, but the point is how you can portray the same thing with 'sympathy' (as is done with Muslims etc) and with all kinds of 'oppressive' connotations:

They're trying to make a situation where Indians (who genuinely face a lot of politically correct mockery and racism in tons of countries) will be ashamed to complain about anything at all if the bigotry happens to be related to something "Hindu". A lot of these academics use appeal to prejudice, so those who don't have any problem with Hindus, but who feel Indians are inferior or want a scapegoat (which is a large percent imo of those who jump on the bandwagon about this) will jump on the opportunity to hide their vile attitudes towards Indians behind being against "Hindutva". I don't genuinely believe most people have any problem with Hinduism. I've seen tons of Islamic propagandists use stereotypes and negative things relating to Indians in general to get others to rally against Hindus. I've noticed (at least online tbf) that the LEFT (not the right) tends to be the most racist to Indians compared to any other group for this reason imo.
