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.

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.

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.

HAF is a welcomed and united voice against the common non-apprehensions / mis-apprehensions of hinduism. As a Hindu American mother of 3 young children, I am deeply grateful for the work HAF puts in to uplift and protect our religion, people and culture. HAF is todays present to tomorrows future.

What HAF has done for the cause of Hindus in America is simply amazing. I really admire their effort to come down heavily on the California education system which had been misrepresenting Hindu Dharma to such an extent that students felt ashamed to call themselves Hindus.
HAF has also been
involved in raising voices after those who try to defame Hindus under a false pretext. I wish they keep on continuing all the good work and I support them completely.

HAF does very important work in the areas of diversity, pluralism and inclusiveness.

HAF spearheads many sessions bringing law makers to gether on the cultural implications of their actions.

A decent organization trying hard to be fair and bring value.

volunteer time at some point into the future when that is available for this.
