World Hindu Congress to Convene in Delhi November 21-23, 2014


DELHI, INDIA, October 26, 2014 (Press Release): The global Hindu society, beset by very serious challenges stands at a critical crossroads. It is absolutely necessary that Hindus assemble to reflect the issues in front of a Hindu population which is more than a billion. The Christian and Muslim populations of the world, which now stand well over a billion strong themselves, have consistently held global forums and conferences to deliberate issues of global importance and quickly form global initiatives rooted in their religious traditions to tackle these issues. The Hindu community, on the other hand, standing as the world’s third largest civilisation group as well as the oldest and the world’s most deeply rooted Dharma tradition, does not have a consistent global platform to address and resolve the relevant issues that affect both the Hindu population as well as the entire global population. The global Hindu community has only held such forums and conferences at intermittent times, with the implementation of resolutions and proposed policies being sporadic at best. The fatal convergence of these developments has greatly undermined the effectiveness of any gains made at previously held conferences. It is time to break this inconsistency.

The new century demands that Hindu society come together on a common platform with a common purpose and a shared vision to march ahead confidently into the future. In this context, the World Hindu Congress will be held on 21 – 23 November, 2014 in the city of New Delhi. The World Hindu Congress will be organized in a joint manner consisting of all like minded Hindu groups every four years, with each Congress being held in a different part of the world. The Congress is an informal organisation, solely dependent on the efforts of associated Hindu organisations and activists. The Congress will consist of delegates from around the world. The delegates will consist of individuals who committed to working for the Hindu resurgence as well as men and women of achievement and accomplishment in a wide range of professions and human endeavors.

The Congress, will consist of seven different conferences. Each conference will specifically deal with an area of strategic importance to the global Hindu community, holding detailed deliberations (both pre-conference and post-conference) and articulating specific solutions to deal with any obstacles that are blocking the Hindu community’s ability to progress in the respective area concerned.
