CONGRESSMAN RAJA KRISHNAMOORTHI RESPONDS TO PORTRAYAL OF HINDUISM ON "BELIEVER"

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi's statement on the portrayal of Hinduism on Believer follows:

As our country confronts the current wave of hate-motivated crimes and divisive rhetoric, I’m very disappointed that any outlet would sensationalize religious practices, especially those of such an obscure and unrepresentative group. It would be unfortunate under any circumstances for more than a billion practicing Hindus to be so misleadingly conflated with a small, extreme splinter sect, but it is still more disturbing at a time when forces of bigotry and division are actively seeking fodder for their prejudice.
