News India Times reported that "a campaign launched by Chicago radio and TV talk-show host Tony Brown purports to 'inform' the American public about Hinduism...Among other things, Brown said:...Nazism emanated from Hinduism...Untouchability [is] 'widely practiced' in India...[and] female children and women of lower castes are forced into prostitution...Brown chastised the US government for allowing (Indians) to immigrate into the US...The [India] Tribune called on Hindus to show the same aggressive spirit that Muslims, Christian or Jews would demonstrate if their religion was attacked."
