Ahead of the UK general elections slated for July 4, Hindu organisations in the United Kingdom launched “The Hindu Manifesto UK 2024” on Saturday, calling for the recognition of anti-Hindu hate as a religious hate crime.

The manifesto, released on June 8, outlines seven key demands from the parliamentary candidates and the future government.

Besides recognition of anti-Hindu hate as a religious hate crime, the six demands mentioned in the manifesto include, protecting places of Hindu worship, access to fairer education, equal representation and opportunities for Hindus, streamlining immigration, healthcare and social care and acknowledging and protecting dharmic values.

The manifesto claims support from several parliamentary candidates. “The manifesto ushers a unified voice of the UK Hindu community as representatives from diverse backgrounds and regions come together to champion the seven assurances,” said the Hindu organisations in a statement.

The document calls on all candidates to support the Hindu community in their respective constituencies.

Earlier this year, over 200 Hindu groups in the UK celebrated the consecration of a Lord Ram idol in Ayodhya, expressing hopes that the UK would commemorate the event. The groups stated that this historic moment marked the culmination of five centuries of dedicated efforts.
