How Hinduism is being colonised in the United States

By Mark Pritchard – The New York Times November 13, 2017At a Hindu temple in suburban New York City, an elderly woman, wearing a black skullcap, is speaking.

She says: “I am not a Hindu.

I am a human.

You have to be a human and not a caste system.”

She is a participant in the annual ‘Hindu-inclusive’ festival in New York, which aims to showcase the diverse community of Hindus in America.

“We have a caste-system in America,” she says, referring to the system in which people are divided into various classes and have to live together according to their religion. 

The celebration was organised by the New York chapter of the World Hindu Congress (WIC), a group of leading Hindu groups that organise religious festivals across the country.

It aims to highlight the benefits of religious diversity. 

At the WIC, a Hindu priest sits in front of a wooden pillar, holding a golden candlestick.

He says: “It’s not a good thing to have a Hindu-majority city like New York and New York is a Hindu city, not because it’s a big city, but because it is a place where people from different faiths can meet.” 

The Hindu community in America has been steadily growing since the 1960s.

It is estimated that by 2050, India will have a population of about one billion.

Hinduism, or Hinduism as it is commonly known, has been around for more than 2,500 years and has been practised in many parts of the world.

It is an important religion for millions of people worldwide, with some estimates suggesting that around a billion people worldwide practice Hinduism.

The WIC and its partners, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), the Council of American-Religious Bodies (CAARB), the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and the International Christian Concern (ICC), aim to celebrate Hinduism in America through a variety of events, including a ‘Hindi Day of Remembrance’.

Hindu Day of Recognition The festival was created in 2005 by the Wicca International Conference (WICS) to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Lord Buddha.

WICS was founded in 1972 as the first-ever Hindu-in-America conference.

In the 1980s, the WICS conference began taking place at the WAC Center in Rochester, New York.

Its first conference was held in 1989.

During the 1990s, WICS expanded its focus to include other religions, including Judaism, Buddhism and Christianity.

A new version of Hinduism was created by the American Hindu Community (AHCA), a US-based group that promotes Hinduism worldwide.

The new edition was released in 2017.

The Hindu-American Community International (HACI), which includes Hindu communities in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, holds annual Hindu-themed festivals across America.

According to the Wiccans, Hinduism has been adopted by more than 200 countries around the world, with the most notable being India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Hindu-Americans are a unique group of people, said Vipul Jha, a WIC board member who founded the group in 1990.

They are not just Hindu-nationals, but also people who have come from diverse backgrounds and religions, he said. 

“The fact that they have such a rich cultural heritage, as well as their social and economic diversity, has helped to give Hinduism a unique place in the world,” he said, explaining that Hinduism promotes a culture of social justice, social inclusion and diversity.

The WICS group says it wants to celebrate this diversity by creating a “Hindu World” that promotes religious tolerance and diversity and the empowerment of people from diverse religions.

“The goal of this celebration is to highlight this diversity and bring together all religions, races, ethnicities, genders, sexualities and social classes to bring people together in a shared vision of humanity,” Jha said.

The Hindu Day of Mourning, also known as the ‘Hinayana’ festival, is celebrated in many different ways.

“The traditional way of mourning is the cremation of the dead body.

So the traditional way is to cut open the body, bury it, then let the ashes dry and collect them in the ground, or even put them in a bag,” said the Wics president, Sushmita Rao, who has worked with the Hindu community for more to than 20 years. 

Hindu celebrations are usually observed on Diwali (November 25), a day that is traditionally associated with birthdays and festivities.

The WICS president said the Hindu day of Mourngas are celebrated on the second Sunday in November.

“The celebration is a time
