[January 23, 2024] – Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Canada, expresses its deep concerns and strongly condemns the dissemination of misleading information regarding the construction of Shri Ram Hindu temple alleged to be built atop a razed mosque. Various media outlets have recently published articles containing inaccuracies that distort the facts surrounding this issue.

In 2019, the Supreme Court of India gave the judgment that Babri Masjid was constructed on the ruins of Shri Ram’s Temple which refutes any claims made by any other source.The misrepresented narrative not only misguides the public but also perpetuates a false understanding of the situation. VHP Canada stands firm in its commitment to truth, transparency, and the responsible reporting of events.

Hindu community across the globe is a peace loving, progressive and inclusive one which believes in the values of “Vasudevam Kutumbukam” (meaning the world is one family). Such misleading and factually incorrect journalism intended to spread hate against the Hindu Canadian community threatens to further fuel growing Hinduphobia in the country and disrupt peace within the peaceful Canadian society.

We urge the media to exercise diligence in verifying information & to refrain from perpetuating misleading narratives. Inaccurate reporting not only harms the credibility of the media but also has far-reaching consequences on public perception. VHP Canada calls for immediate correction of the inaccuracies in the recent articles. We believe in the importance of accurate & unbiased reporting to foster a well-informed society.
