Ohio residents urged to contact their representatives to lend support 


On May 17th, Ohio state senator Niraj Antani (R-Miamisburg) introduced a new resolution that, after listing numerous anti-Hindu incidents that have occurred across the United States in the past year,  condemns “Hinduphobia, anti-Hindu bigotry, and intolerance and declare[s] Ohio as a place that welcomes the diversity brought by Hindu Americans.”

In supporting the resolution, HAF Managing Director Samir Kalra stated:

“We applaud Senator Antani for introducing this resolution condemning Hinduphobia and for always standing in solidarity with the Hindu American community. We look forward to other Ohio legislators joining in similarly condemning anti-Hindu hate by supporting this resolution.”

To that end HAF has set up an action alert for residents of Ohio to contact their representatives: Support OH-SCR 6
