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.

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 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.

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 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.

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" .
