American Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard’s links with RSS condemned

TCN News 16 Sep 2019

Tulsi Gabbard, the Hawaii representative from Democratic Party who will be running for the post of President of USA in the 2020 polls is also associated with the Hindutva group RSS from a long period.




Her link with the fascist group that has primarily been actively spreading hate and promoting hate crimes against the marginalized sections of the Indian society has been criticized and condemned by a large group of likeminded individuals such as writers, research scholars, activists, lawyers, students and professionals from different fields.

They have issued a statement condemning the silence of the Democratic Party that is fielding Tulsi Gabbard despite knowing that she is associated with the Hindu-militant organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and its American affiliates.

The statement mentions that Tulsi Gabbard has been funded by members of groups like – Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America, Overseas Friends of the BJP, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh and Ekal Foundation, which have direct links with the RSS.
 
Tulsi Gabbard projects herself as a progressive and a champion of inclusive politics but she has been filler her coffers with their blood tainted money which is why she never once condemned any of the heinous acts of the RSS and its affiliate groups, says the statement.
 
The group of citizens from India who has issued the statement to the Democratic party condemning the silence of the party also stated that It would be a moral failure of members of the Democratic Party to have within their ranks a person like Gabbard who has supported and is backed by a network under whose rule India has witnessed increasing violence against Christians, Muslims and Dalits, disenfranchising of minority groups, illegal detention and clampdown on human rights of Kashmiris, and crushing of rational and progressive voices.

Their demand is that unless Gabbard unequivocally and publicly denounces the hate politics of RSS, the Democratic Party leaders hold her accountable being hand-in-glove with forces of hate and cut all ties with her.

Among the signatories are Dr. Ram Punyani, Shabnam Hashmi, Pieter Friedrich, Umar Khalid and others.
