Washington. Indian-American lawmaker Thanedar has announced plans to form a ‘Hindu Caucus’ in the US Congress that will bring like-minded lawmakers on a single platform to ensure that there is no hatred and bigotry against Hindus in the country. Thanedar, who represents Michigan’s 13th district, made the announcement at the first Hindu-American Summit at the Capitol Visitor Center on Wednesday.
Thanedar said that it is important that every individual has the right to choose a religion and worship the God they choose without any coercion. Also, there should be no discrimination or hatred towards those who do not believe in God. Thanedar said, “These are fundamental freedoms. These are fundamental human rights.
Republican Congressman Rich McCormick, representing Georgia’s 6th district, announced a bipartisan Congressional delegation to India for the convention in August. “I have so much respect for this immigrant population that has done so much for America,” McCormick said.
McCormick said he has repeatedly said that the community is aware and feels that they do in fact have the power to choose America’s next president. He said, “I am not saying this just to say it. You have real power.” Organized by Americans4Hindus and supported by 20 other organizations, the summit was attended by Hindu community leaders from across the country.
