stoppress.gifEHRC report published ..... NIESR mark 2..?

Dr Meena Dhanda's team supported by the EHRC have published their report into Caste in the UK, the AHO have had an initial opportunity to review its contents and conclusion and not unsurprisingly, it too lacks internal integrity and the conclusion rather than being a strong well supported, clearly evidenced contribution to this issue, seems to be a bit of a damp squib... which is hardly surprising if one is trying to project an unsupported, undevidenced proposition. Thousands of pounds of our taxes, for a conclusion which pretty much agrees with the very initial AHO legal understanding and with the position of the Government..... draw your own conclusions as to what this whole exercise has been about .... click here to read the AHO response and briefing for Rt Hon Bob Blackman, Chairman of the APPG for British Hndus.

AHO .. the amazing journey so far...



1st June 2013

One of the many wonderful things that our British Hindu Community is known for is its unmatched work ethic. Whether its in business or the professions, when we put our minds to a task, no one does it better. In April of this year there was no AHO but after Lord Harries and his racist colleagues publically denigrated our Community, discriminating against us in the most despicable manner, the British Hindu Community turned its attention to this task and the AHO was born.... here's the press release we recently issued with a summary of the milestones reached so far.


Alliance of Hindu Organisations (AHO):

In March 2013 the House of Lords voted in favour of a proposal to include ‘caste’ within the definition of race in the Equalities Act 2010. This was a matter of great concern to the 1 million strong UK Hindu community, who felt that this would stigmatise them and embed the caste system, which the community rejected, within the legal system.


The Alliance of Hindu Organisations (AHO) was set up in order to have "One Hindu Voice" when lobbying Parliament on the Caste Legislation.

The AHO Secretariat/Communcation Team led by our Young Hindu Professionals were tasked with actively communicating with Ministers, MPs, Lords and other Stakeholders via face to face meetings, presentations, emails and through letter writing. They also created compelling messages with which to brief the Media, MPs and Lords in the run up to further votes within Parliament on the issue of caste based discrimination. The AHO also worked with Linstock Communications to generate mainstream and social media interest of the Hindu Community's arguments to counter a very active lobby in favour of legislation.


In a very short time frame of just 6 weeks, the AHO Secretariat/Communications Team took the Hindu Community's messaging and turned it into a compelling narrative about why the proposed legislation would be detrimental and what the community’s concerns were about its possible implementation. This messaging was distributed to targeted media, all MPs and members of the House of Lords. A dedicated website: www.mycasteishindu.org together with Twitter/Facebook accounts, YouTube Channel containing videos and Email Distribution Lists were also created and used to engage in dialogue with supporters and opponents.



The Lords’ vote was at first rejected by the Commons and the Lords’ majority in favour of legislation was reduced from over 150 to single figures. However, the proposal did go through after Government flagship legislation was threatened by a stalemate. Nevertheless, the messages created by AHO was used in all Parliamentary debates and was praised by both Ministers and Officials. The AHO public affairs campaign helped secure a number of significant Government concessions on consultation and implementation of the legislation for the Hindu Community. The next stage of AHO's work is to insist that the Government conducts a robust, inclusive and wide ranging consultation period with the Hindu Community to address the community's concerns, and with the blessings of Elders and the comtinuing support of our Hindu Temples and Umbrella organisations we will continue to make sure that the interests of the British Hindu are protected and never again so casually bargained away.

with best wishes,

Alliance of Hindu Organisations (AHO)

The Alliance....

The Alliance of Hindu Organisations UK has been formed in response to the threat posed by the unplanned, ill concieved undefined amendment to the Equality Act 2010. The Alliance includes the organisations below that represent the vast majority of the 816,633 Hindus in the UK (2011 census figures) and tried to challenge the Legislation helping to reduce a Lords majority from 103 to an unprecedented 13! Still, the Bill was passed by too many MPs and Lords voting against the Government position and voting to PASS this law, without speaking to their Hindu constituents.

Please remember, at this moment its not about Truth, Dharma, the Vedas etc, its not about ADVICE.... its about ACTION and specifically its about NUMBERS OF VOTERS. Please get involved NOW and add your voice to the AHO voice.

"Caste" becomes Law..

On the 8th May 2013 the Queen gave Royal Assent to a Bill which introduces Caste into British Law. The Alliance of Hindu Organisations came into being in answer to the threat of this Legislation but was not able to prevent it. Although it sounds ridiculous, the Law was passed but Caste wasnt defined, nor was the system of implementation discussed.

Because of the AHO and the organisations representing Hindus in the UK, we did manage to get the Government to agree to a consultation period during which we would be able to contribute to the Consultation and try and make the Hindu case. This site is about raising awareness amongst the Hindu Community and to getting the Hindu Community to demand to be heard.

For those of you who came to the BAPS Swaminarayan gathering last night and contributed your support and blessings, thank you. This is a challenge which cannot be faced by a small group but one which requires the Hindu community of Great Britain to come together like never before. The very growth and future happiness of the Hindu community of the UK is threatened by the imposition of this Caste Law and uness we meet this challenge TOGETHER, we Hindus will see everything we have striven for disappear before our very eyes and our children will be dragged backwards into a Caste driven society. We need you to to tell us how you can help and what you can bring to meet this challenge and you can start this process by getting in touch by clicking here. If you dont do it no one else will, if we Hindu's don't do it no one else will. If you are a Hindu and want to preserve the caste-free Hindu Community we have established here in the UK, its time to step forward and join us NOW.
