Announcements Activists disrupt Hindu supremacist conclave in Chicago, evoke violent reaction from extremists Anti-fascists slogans call for a stop to Hindu fascism during plenary session of World Hindu Congress September 9, The Alliance for Justice and Accountability AJAan umbrella organization of progressive South Asian groups across the United States in coordination with the local community, today lauded the activists who disrupted the plenary session of the World Hindu Congress, a conclave convened by organizations aligned with the Hindu supremacist ideology that is spearheading the violation of human rights and religious freedom of minorities in India.
The event has been deeply mired in controversy since the Alliance for Justice and Accountability, along with a wide range of Indian diaspora organizations have denounced it as an attempt to mainstream Hindu fascism in the United States.
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard who had initially agreed to chair the three day Congress severed all connections with the event. Two protesters were arrested and charged with trespass and disorderly conduct, while one conference attendee was charged with battery.
Their response is indicative of their fascist mindset that brooks no dissent, and we refuse to allow it to be promulgated in our state without a fight," said one of the protesters who courted arrest.
This courageous act confronting hate on its own ground is the first direct action against caste in the diaspora.

On Saturday, AJA held a protest outside the conference venue, with the stated goal of "standing in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in India who are fighting against the HIndutva rule and will not be silent in the face of mob lynchings, rapes, murders, and the targeting of our leaders and academics.
The time has come to organize, unite, and to win". These groups are also affiliated with the ruling nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party BJPunder whose rule since there have been over a hundred lynchings of Dalits, adivasis and Muslims, often using the dog whistle of "cow protection.
After learning of the partisan and extremist nature of the event, Gabbard, Kalra and Chaudhuri severed their connections with it.
In a separate development, The Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago condemned the appearance of fascists speakers at the conference. Krishnamoorthi did attend, chairing a panel on political leadership, but indicated that he wishes to hold a meeting with Muslim groups in his constituency who have expressed their deep objections to his support for anti-Muslim activities in India.
AJA has launched a twitter campaign StopHinduFascism, to shed light on the violence and demand accountability from speakers and sponsors of the event.
