By Qayam Masumi, The India Observer, TIO, NJ: Prominent human rights organization, Hindus for Human Rights (HfHR), firmly supports Sunita Viswanath, the Executive Director of HfHR, as she fearlessly voices her opinions in a compelling op-ed published in The Print. Titled “Not George Soros’ Agent: I am a Practicing Hindu Woman Against Hindu Nationalism,” Viswanath’s article has garnered attention for its strong message.
Recognizing the significance of engaging diverse audiences, The Print has published the opinion piece in both English and Hindi, expanding its reach and fostering dialogue within the Hindu community.
In her article, Viswanath recounts a troubling encounter with right-wing Hindu nationalists and their baseless allegations. She highlights an incident involving minority affairs minister Smriti Irani, who unjustly linked Viswanath with George Soros during a DC town hall. This false insinuation aimed to create a conspiracy theory, suggesting a plot to undermine India. Viswanath emphasizes that such groundless accusations and smear campaigns are designed to suppress political dissent and curtail civic space in the country.
As a dedicated advocate for human rights and social justice, Viswanath strongly opposes the divisive nature of Hindu nationalism. Proudly identifying as a practicing Hindu woman, she upholds the values of pluralism and the inclusive heritage of Hinduism. She urges fellow Hindus to critically analyze the rise of Hindu nationalism and actively support social justice causes.
Hindus for Human Rights expresses solidarity with Sunita Viswanath and others, including journalist Sabrina Siddiqui, who have faced targeted attacks by Hindu nationalists for questioning and advocating for human rights. The organization vehemently denounces the coordinated campaigns of hate, Islamophobia, misogyny, and casteism perpetuated by Hindu nationalists, recognizing them as forms of digital transnational repression.

Hindus for Human Rights commends The Print for providing a platform that amplifies diverse voices and fosters meaningful discussions on crucial issues.
