To oppose religious prejudice, Congressman Thanedar creates a congressional caucus

To defend the rights of Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains, Indian American Congressman Shri Thanedar established a Congressional caucus. The caucus seeks to end prejudice and advance religious liberty.

In order to defend the interests of Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains, Indian American Congressman Shri Thanedar has announced the establishment of a new Congressional caucus.

Two dozen congressmen will support the Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and Jain (HBSJ) American Congressional caucus, which will be formally founded on Friday. Thanedar announced this on Thursday.

The caucus would serve as a forum for promoting understanding, encouraging conversation, and increasing public knowledge of the unique needs and issues facing these communities.

Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains are encouraged to practice their religions freely in order to eliminate religious prejudice.

Additionally, it would guarantee that opinions from the Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and Jain faiths were accurately represented and included in policy deliberations.

The caucus will deal with misconceptions of other cultures, advance interfaith understanding and harmony, and back programs that advance the welfare, education, and empowerment of Americans who are Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, and Jain.

In a press release, Thanedar stated that “Thanedar believes that an inclusive America is a stronger America.”

A congressional caucus is a gathering of members of the US Congress who work toward similar legislative goals.
