Hindu American Foundation does excellent job of clarifying misunderstandings and misperception about Hindy religion and traditions. It also defends intentioanl and unintentional agressions against Hinduism. It also raises voice against agression in the form of conversion often disguised as social service. It instills self respect in younger hindu generation.

This is one of a great organization that works and provide guidance to younger Hindus who have no understanding guidance about their own great religion. They are trying to improve and uplift downtrodden Dalits of India as everyone is ignoring their sorrowful condition. Keep it up your great work.

This is the only Hindu organization that I know off with the energy and enthuism of the 2nd generation Hindus. They use the modern high tech and political tools to keep the Hindu religion alive in a predominantly Chrisitian country. During the short period that they have been in existence, they have done some very impressive works. Examples include: textbook correction, pamplets and brochures to correct misconceptions/misinformation about Hinduism, Hindu human rights violations report, etc.

Having worked in the environmental for over 30 years, I have noted that many of the Hidu rituals are not human helath and environmental friendly but still we blindly follow them. Any progressive religion must keep with times in order to appeal to the newer generations. Launching an effors to bring this awareness and to suggest alternatives will be an effort in that direction. This may be a worthwhile effort for HAF to pursue.

Hindu American Foundation is working very hard to rectify some of the most miss understood aspects of Hinduism. Hinduism is a way of life and many cultures and traditions merged and a great religion is formed. In order to give true picture of Hinduism, HAF is relentlessly working to correct some issues like Dalits of India and Kashmir Pandits for their rights. Younger generations are very grateful for the work they are doing. HAF is the only organization that is working hard with other Jewish communities on some of the global issues. Now they are focussing to give support to Romas of Europe. We need more like HAF which are unbiased in their views.

HAF performs a great service by providing well-researched information and data about Hinduism and the contribution of the more than two mikkion Hindus to our country's growth and progress. By providing unbiased and correct information, it has promoted interreligion harmony and understanding.

Hindu-American Foundation is a much needed organization which finally has come into being. Many times I felt frustrated seeing wrong depiction of Hinduism in books, newspapers, TV, Movies, Radio etc. and wished some public relation entity was there to handle it. This nonprofit is trying to do that from lobbying on Capital Hill to take legal action during California Text Book controversy.


Still much more is needed to be done. Lack of funds can be overcome by tapping into energy of young volunteers which are plentiful in young Hindu American community. Foundation should pay more attention to community outreach.

I myself was filled with joy and pride when I came to know that President Obama attended Diwali celebrations in White House. This organization had worked toward that direction.

I would turn it into an umbrella organization representing Hindu Americans of all sorts by inviting everyone, who calls him/herself Hindu to join, with a small membership fee and making them welcome to participate in all ongoing projects according to their capacity.

HAF members worked hard with other Hindu organizations in representing Hinduism during the California Textbook Review. I have been following them after that and I must say that they're doing very professional work. HAF campaign of "Taking Back Yoga" has helped it gain quite a lot of respect of the community at large. Good work and continue doing it.

Because of the work done during the CA textbook review, my son and now my daughter are reading much better coverage of Hindu Dharma (and India) in school-books.

Make sure that other voices in Hindu Dharma are treated well and given proper respect because we are taught that unity is strength.
