WASHINGTON, D.C., July 12, 2007:

The Hindu American Foundation is certainly pleased that the faith of nearly 1 billion of the world’s population, and 2 million American Hindus, has been represented today at the Senate. As a strong, vibrant and deeply faithful community, we share the need to be represented as part of the fabric of the heterogeneous American society.


It is quite disheartening to see that those misinformed about the Hindu faith,
and its countless contributions, have taken the route of disrupting a significant and solemn occasion.Just as the Hindu community was troubled by intolerance of the the exclusivist view of the American Family Association
that were reflected by few protesters that were removed from the gallery today, our community is heartened and grateful by the brave voices of Senator Harry Reid and other Senators who made this historic moment possible in the Halls of Congress today. We reach out everyone to join us in continuing to build a society based on the principles of tolerance, pluralism and understanding.
