Equal representation and opportunity for British Hindus

Equal representation and opportunity for British Hindus

The Hindu Manifesto UK 2024 was recently launched by the Hindus for Democracy umbrella organisation. The manifesto has been framed by major Hindu organisations across the UK, including INSIGHT UK, NHSF UK, HSS, Hindu Council UK and many more.

This iGlobal series digs deeper, chapter by chapter, through each of the issues highlighted in the first-of-its-kind Hindu Manifesto 2024 – Part 4 focussed on “Equal Representation and opportunities for Hindus”.

Better representations of Hindu candidates in public institutions and political parties

Hindus are under-represented in most public institutions and political parties. The manifesto requests a pledge from candidates to provide equal opportunities for aspiring Hindu leaders within the party to be coached and encouraged to stand for their party at all levels.

This means actively identifying and nurturing talent from the Hindu community. It includes actively scouting and encouraging talented Hindu individuals to join public institutions and political parties. In appointing members of these institutions and candidates of parties, merit should always be the primary criterion. Community outreach is something that is also required, as well as the encouragement of Hindu candidates to contest in local elections. Representation matters at every level of governance.
