Good News! Hinduphobia Is Finally In An official Dictionary

In mid 2020 we wrote to Oxford English Dictionary with our article on Hinduphobia to request they make an entry as it goes back to the late Nineteenth Century.

We are especially pleased to see that they have acknowledged the etymology and long history of this word in the English language.

The definition is superb, as simple to comprehend as it is elegant.

Our many thanks to the Oxford English Dictionary for correcting this long standing literary injustice. Let’s see this definition in all the Oxford editions and other reference texts.

Now we all have an official definition to work with and can all move forward.

Happy Guru Poornima everyone. May the light of truth always shine and conquer avidya.

"The Kashmir Files" shows only a small part of this. Should a Kashmir Genocide Law be made and the atrocities be fully investigated?

आपकी राय

1989-90 में, राजीव गांधी के प्रधान मंत्री और फारूक अब्दुल्ला के मुख्यमंत्री के रूप में, 400,000 कश्मीरी पंडितों, सिखों और अन्य लोगों को नरसंहार का सामना करना पड़ा - या तो रातों-रात कश्मीर छोड़ने के लिए मजबूर होना पड़ा । "द कश्मीर फाइल्स" इसका एक छोटा सा हिस्सा ही दिखाता है। क्या कश्मीर में हुए नरसंहार पर कानून बनाया जाना चाहिए और अत्याचारों की पूरी जांच होनी चाहिए?
