Tomorrow 18th December 2013 is going to be a historic day for all British Hindus. It is the launch of the ‘All Party Parliamentary Group for British Hindus’ (APPG) in the UK Houses of Parliament.


The APPG will provide an important link between the Hindu Community and Parliament, allowing the community to be formally represented for the first time. The APPG is no doubt a very positive step forward in the evolution of the Hindu community in the UK. It will ensure that Politicians acknowledge the exceptional contribution of the Hindu community in the UK to the civic and economic wellbeing of the country and also the community’s positive contribution in all the professions and the achievements of individuals and organisations. The setting up of the APPG is a major achievement for British Hindus and it is clear that the Hindu community is now in a position to influence and work with Government to resolve and handle issues affecting Hindus in the UK, Europe and Worldwide.
