Addressing Hinduphobia in Canada

Hinduphobia needs to be recognized and addressed. There must be ZERO tolerance of hate targeting the Hindu community in Canada. Addressing Hinduphobia in Canada is a shared responsibility that demands collective efforts and action from various levels of government, law enforcement authorities, and our institutions. By raising awareness, promoting understanding, and advocating for the rights and safety of Canadian Hindus, we can work together to create a harmonious society where everyone, regardless of their faith or background, can live without fear and insecurity within the community.
