An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it........... Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position........... First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Mahatma Gandhi



Press Release from the Campaign to Stop Funding Hate
We at the Campaign to Stop Funding Hate (CSFH) are writing to urge the California State Board of Education to take a principled position against the changes sought by sectarian organizations like the Vedic Foundation (VF), Hindu Education Foundation (HEF) and the Hindu American Foundation (HAF) to middle-school textbooks in California. While we recognize the immediate issue is with the changes sought by the VF and the HEF, we also wish to put on record our acknowledgment that all aspects of these textbooks that reflect bigoted and supremacist ideologies must be addressed and corrected with the guidance of experts in the relevant fields of historical research. We stand in full solidarity with Friends of South Asia (FOSA) and urge that all secular and anti-supremacist citizens of California come together to support their efforts.

Press Release from the Campaign to Stop Funding Hate
The Campaign to Stop Funding Hate (CSFH) deplores the fact that prestigious American educational institutions such as the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania are granting unprecedented legitimacy to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) by providing an unmediated forum for its spokesperson, Ram Madhav.

Press Release from The Campaign to Stop Funding Hate
The Campaign to Stop Funding Hate (CSFH) thanks the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) for its statement of February 27th, 2004 clarifying that the India Development and Relief Fund (IDRF) is indeed a “Hindu organization”, closely related to the Sangh Parivar. That has been our claim all along. In contrast to the current RSS statement, the IDRF continues to mislead the public by claiming to be a secular, broad based organization funding “development” and “relief” programs in India. It is nothing more than a US fundraising front for RSS groups in India. March 1, 2004

Press Release from The Campaign to Stop Funding Hate
British Charity Funding Religious Extremism: New Report backs “Stop Funding Hate” Findings: "An investigative report says that a charity in the United Kingdom has channeled millions of pounds raised from the British Public to organizations affiliated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in India – the same organizations that are deeply implicated in the 2002 genocide of Muslims in Gujarat. Prepared by Awaaz – South Asia Watch Ltd., a London-based secular network, the report is titled “In Bad Faith? British Charity and Hindu Extremism.” The report points out that organizations such as Sewa International, the fund raising arm of the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) in the U.K, have been raising funds in the name of charity but siphoning the money to RSS front organizations in India."
