AHAD – American Hindu Against Defamation

An ever vigilant coalition of the largest Hindu organizations – a Hindu watchdog group, dedicated to preserving the sanctity of Hindu symbols, icons, culture and customs


  • How Low Can You Go? Deities on Toilet Seats – AHAD Protests
  • Deities on Shoes- AHAD Protests Classic Designs – Abuse of Hindu Images

  • AHAD Xena Protest – Insensitive Portrayal of Hindu Deities
  • Club Karma – Hindu Deities to sell liquor and Night Club
  • Aerosmith Album disfigures Shree Krishna – Protest Sony Music’s insensitivity
  • We Hindus welcome philosophical disagreements and criticism of Hindu social practices. However, every once in a while, some prominent person or media maliciously assails Hindu dharma. For some, Hindu bashing is a favorite hobby, for some it is fashionable while yet others have used it for political and financial gains.
  • While we do not believe in an organized form of religion, we do believe that the followers of Hindu Dharma need to be organized to take up the challenges posed by the these detractors of Hindu Dharma.
  • AHAD is the watch dog for anti-Hindu activities. Whether you are a Hindu or not, you are invited to participate, to point out the events and incidents, news items, television shows etc. that you perceive to be anti-Hindu.
  • AHAD invites you to participate in the Hindu activist movements. It also provides an action plan for countering such propaganda. The action plan includes: Letter Writing, calling, or faxing.

Dharma Rakshak Rakshitaha. Those who defend the Dharma are Defended by It 
If Hindu Dharma has to counter the anti-Hindu onslaught, all of us Hindus must join forces.
