The news that Padma Kuppa, an Indian-American is running for Michigan’s State House of Representatives, has raised concern among the other Indian Americans because of her right winged ideologies.
Her writings reflect shades of Hindu nationalism and anti Muslim and anti-Christian stance. She is said to support Indian laws which criminalize people who change their religion without government permission which is a direct violation of the fundamental constitutional right of religious freedom.
Through her writings she has clearly explained her beliefs. One can see the kind of communal feelings she harbours when she writes about conversion of people into Christianity saying that this actually makes the Hindus intolerant and defensive. Besides she attributes westernization of daughters to conversion to Christianity which is worrying other Indian Americans.
