Hindus need to know how rest of the world do business in any given field including 'religion'. HAF knows how to bring the issues to the right place in the right way in any given country/organization. NY TIMES article on YOGA is one example of HAF's sincere work, when some individuals tried to patent YOGA contents etc. Also their logical representation in front of California Board of Education reflects the quality of work they do.
Recently when I needed some clarification about bumper sticker
'coexist', they were able help me rightaway.

Hindus in general and particularly those in the United States, are not very articulate about explaining their faith to the curious, or defending their faith against the malicious. In other words they have very few organized advocates.

HAF does just that, and that too on a shoe-string
budget. I am very, very impressed by their advocacy for Hindus in America.

But I am doubly impressed by their foresight and vision to also take on the challenges to Hinduism from within, such as casteism, untouchability, etc. Their eyes wide open, minds wide open and arms wide open approach is a refeshing change from the often narrow advocacy of other so called Hindu groups.

I first came to know about HAF for the work they did towards correcting the misrepresentation of Hindu Dharma in California school textbooks.Since then I have been actively following several of their campaigns. HAF as an organization is well balanced and very friendly.Their work truly represents and voices many concerns that most Hindu Americans have. I would very much support their activities.

I heard of this organization with the take back yoga campaign, and then learnt about their previous activities from their website.

As an American Hindu, I am often frustrated and angered with the patronizing and illiterate portrayals of our ancient religion in American culture and even
academia. I am happy to have finally found an advocacy group that wants to correct these mistakes, and call attention to abuses that take place against Hindus and their religion by speaking up for Hindus everywhere in a rational, professional, informed way by which understanding can be increased, and bridges can be built.

After viewing their videos and seeing the founders speak intelligently, passionately, and professionally about these issues, I am convinced that they are superb ambassadors for our faith, and am happy to support their activities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Articles in the popular media such as the New York Times, and CNN. I have also observed that they are making inroads as the goto spokesmen for Hindu-related issues in the press.

HAF is a great organisation for fighting for truth and justice for Hindus all over the Globe. They are doing a great service to Hindu society. Hindu religion has been so much underrepreented and misrepresented especially in the west and HAF is doing great in bringing the correct picture of Hinduism and shedding off the distortions some so called western historians has brought to Hinduism.
Bravo and Bhagwan ji bless you with the strength and wisdom to bring just and truth out !!!!

HAF is doing excellent job for Hindu's at -large. HAF is there to promote true spirit of Hinduism and at the same guarding well being of Hindus.

Advocacy is the main function of HAF on the behalf of Hinduism. Since their inception they have track record of achieving the result in
appropriate manner. Like California Text Book for schools with mis represntation of Hinduism. We would like the world know about the true Hinduism and it' contribution to the Humanity.

I will strongly support this organization in a true spirit.

Namaskar

Their contribution is significant starting from advocacy in Washington DC, lobbying for Hindus and their causes. It's the only organization who reports the issues of Hindus in the world. Malaysia, Bangladesh or Pakistan, anywhere there is maltreatment of ethical, social, physical harassment etc. they are always in the front to inform the society and respected bodies to help and correct the issues immediately.

This organization can start advocating for teaching "value based education" in the schools. Hinduism has lot to offer to the society, like YOG, PRANAYAM and "SANSKARAS" to be a good Citizen and Good Human Being. This organization can take a lead to promote worshiping " PRAKRUTI" means environment in general. We are on the path to destroy our own planet by not respecting our planet, looting the resources and waste it. Hinduism talks about since time of "VEDAS" .
