Dear Tony Maddox
Executive VP and managing director, CNN International
Global Hindu Empowerment Office strongly condemns design, development and broadcasting of CNN ‘Believer’ program which depicted Hindu Ethos, Traditions and Beliefs in an acute defamatory and denigrate manner. The program is causing serious resentment in Hindu American community and worldwide Hindus and our Hindu Empowerment offices are monitoring this since past few weeks. The was hosted by CNN’s Mr. Reza Aslan’s and depicted Hindu practices in India in a very bad light.
Your show is endangering Hindu American’s personal safety and dignity in United States Of America which encountered recent racist attacks.
Your company is making Hindu Americans more vulnerable in Americas by supplementing misconceptions about Hindu religious practices, which may aid to more racist attacks. The current US Govt. is already upset by your biased and anti establishment stand.
Our office requests your immediate attention to this request and stops any further design and broadcast on Hinduism. We recommend, your firm should also discharge Mr. Reza Aslan’s of his duties, who is an illiterate and ignorant anchor in Hinduism & India affairs and becomes a liability for CNN. Please feel free to contact our office if you need some astute subject matter experts for pre production review of your documentaries, we know many in Atlanta.
– W/ Best Regards
RAHUL CHANDRA SHARMA [GHEO]
