The Rise of Hindutva Ideology in the U. S. and its Implications on World Politics
Topic Highlights: Hindutva operations in the U. S., their mode of operations, effectiveness, and impact.
Presented by: Pieter Friedrich
Pieter Friedrich is a freelance journalist specializing in analysis of current and historical affairs in South Asia, with a particular focus on the issue of Hindu nationalism. He was originally inspired to take up the issue of human rights in India through encounters with Sikh, Dalit, and Kashmiri communities in America who related the stories of their oppression. Uncovering activities of Hindu nationalist outfits in America, especially their interference in U. S. Politics, led him to realize the transnational impact of that extremist movement.
