Hindu Dharma, Hindutva and Hindudvesha
Day 6: Oct 31st, 8am PT/11am EST/8:30pm IST
Panel 1: The Aryan Race, Anti-Semitism and Hindudvesha
How has the Aryan Race theory constructed and framed both Hinduism and Judaism as a problem that needs a solution? How does this threaten both communities?
Panelists: Ms. Peggy Shapiro, Dr. Vishwa P. Adluri and Dr. Joydeep Baghchee
Panel 2: Caste as anchor point of Hindudvesha
How has the Varna-Jati system been recast into caste system, a quintessential Western construct with racial overtones? How has this West-imposed construct been weaponized to castigate the Hindu social structure? What is the path forward?
