A petition for the recognition of Hinduphobia in Canada has gained over 25,000 signatures, surpassing the required 500 for it to be referred to the government for a response. Launched on July 19, the petition seeks to define Hinduphobia and include it in the Human Rights Code to address systemic discrimination against Hindus, Hinduism, or Hinduness. It was sponsored by MP Melissa Lantsman, deputy leader of Canada’s Conservative Party, and initiated by the Canadian Organisation for Hindu Heritage Education. Hinduphobia gained prominence in Canada following a video by the secessionist group Sikhs for Justice, targeting Canadian Hindus of Indian origin. Several incidents of temple desecration with pro-Khalistan graffiti have also drawn attention to Hinduphobia in the country. Advocates hope that Parliament will introduce legislation recognizing and addressing Hinduphobia in Canada. Dig deeper

Premature birth, defined as birth before 37 weeks of pregnancy, can be a challenging journey for parents.
