Attention Canadian Hindus! Please sign the campaign to send a letter to your MP urging them to strongly oppose Bill C-229. The bill, in its current form, will perpetuate misunderstanding, misuse, and hatred towards the Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains, violating their civil rights. The bill uses the term “Nazi Swastika” instead of “Hakenkreuz” (“Hooked Cross” in English) which is incorrect and exposes the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain minority communities vulnerable to hate crimes. The bill would also put these communities at risk of having their religious practices falsely recast as hateful.
