NEW DELHI — Hindus for Human Rights (HfHR), a nonprofit US-based organisation that advocates for human rights in South Asia and North America, has launched its operations in the United Kingdom.

The inauguration event was attended by notable figures, including renowned historian and biographer and HfHR advisory board member Rajmohan Gandhi, his wife Usha Gandhi, and human rights advocates Aakashi Bhatt, Imran and Yusuf Dawood, all of whom were featured in BBC documentary, India: The Modi Question. 

Also in attendance were Salil Shetty, a luminary in human rights advocacy, scholars Dibyesh Anand and Nitasha Kaul, Pragna Patel, a stalwart in women’s rights activism, and accomplished British artists Shahina Jaffer and Abu Jafar, a press statement issued by the advocacy group said on Thursday.

Under the leadership of HfHR’s UK organiser Rajiv Sinha and the guidance of Executive Director Sunita Viswanath, the group has embarked on a journey to champion human rights within the Hindu community in the UK. 

The historic launch event signifies a collective commitment to fostering a more just and equitable world, the statement said.

Hundreds of activists, academics, peace-builders, politicians, doctors, surgeons, business leaders, campaigners, writers, artists, and conscientious members of the Indian diaspora listened to one another, shared insights, and inspired each other to act towards a common future, the statement added.  

Recently, Twitter accounts of Hindus for Human Rights and the Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC) were withheld in India due to a ‘legal demand’ from the government in New Delhi.
