Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, the sole remaining woman in the Democratic presidential primaries, has been accused of “fascism” and pressured to drop out of the race after she shared a post about hatred of Hindus in the US.

“Unfortunately, Hinduphobia is very real,” Gabbard tweeted on Thursday, saying she experienced it directly both in her congressional and presidential campaigns. “Sadly, our political leaders [and] media not only tolerate it, but foment it,” she added.

Reactions to Gabbard’s post quickly proved her point, as critics swooped on the Hindu-American congresswoman to accuse her of “fascism” over her alleged support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ideology of Hindutva, or Indian nationalism.

Yeah, I read that also in RT. She referred to an email about a woman passenger who was verbally abused by an Uber driver regarding the abuse of Moslems in India -- apparently the woman appeared to be a Hindu and the driver was not. Although not relevant to the woman being abused just for appearing to be a Hindu, which was Gabbard's point, I think there has been in general a very negative spin placed on events in India that blames Hindus entirely for the tensions there that may not be justified . I don't feel I know enough about it to have a highly informed opinion, but to me it's not clear that the law recently passed, that would pave the way towards easy Indian citizenship for non-Moslems who have suffered religious persecution in Moslem countries neighboring India, is "anti-Moslem". (Sorry for the long sentence!) And I'd like to see it discussed more. Also it's not clear to me that the recent violence there concerning that law has been provoked only by Hindus.

In any case, anti-Hindu actions against individuals should not be tolerated, for which I completely agree with Tulsi, regardless of the rights or wrongs of the situation in India.
