Washington (US) – “Hindus in the US have the power to choose the next President. I’m not just saying this, I think you have that potential. Once you engage with the right leaders, you will realise your power. You will write laws for the US, which will take our country on the path of progress for decades”, praised Congressman Richard McCormick. The first Hindu-American Conference was organised on the 14th of June in the Capitol Hill of the US. He was addressing the audience at that time. The Conference was named ‘Americans for Hindus’. 130 Indian-American leaders participated in it. The Conference was started with Vedic mantras and prayers. The Conference was organised in collaboration with 20 Hindu organisations. Its purpose was to draw the attention of the US law makers to the problems of Hindus living in the US.

Organiser of this Conference, Romesh Japra said, “Hindu society has done a great job in every field but politically, we are way behind. We feel that Hindu Americans are being discriminated. That is why we thought it is a good idea to bring all the organisations together”
