LONDON, ENGLAND, February 18, 2007: The BBC has an audio program called "Heart and Soul" which is broadcast on the Internet.

The description reads, "Hinduism In Britain Today: Until recently, Hindus in Britain were the quiet minority apparently untouched by the fundamentalism, or religious sensitivities experienced by other minority faiths.

Now that is changing. Many are appealing for separate recognition as British Hindu rather than Asian, and the young in particular are questioning aspects of the faith that their parents and grandparents took for granted. Ritula Shah talks to the new voices of contemporary Hinduism and finds out why Britain's third largest faith group is showing a rapidly increasing confidence."
