Hindus in Europe are stood together to oppose Germany’s calls for a law in European Union to ban the display of Nazi symbols. Nazi symbol is actually stolen by Hitler, the actual name of this symbol is Swastika, which according to Hindus stands for peace and not for hate. Germany has recently taken the presidency of European Union and it has been told that it has planned to launch an initiative which could lead to common laws all over in Europe to apply it as a crime if someone denies the genocide and displays Nazi symbols.
Hindus in Europe have joined forces against a German proposal to ban the display of the swastika across the European Union, a Hindu leader said. Ramesh Kallidai of the Hindu Forum of Britain said the swastika had been a symbol of peace for thousands of years before the Nazis adopted it. He said a ban on the symbol would discriminate against Hindus. Germany, holder of the EU presidency, wants to make Holocaust denial and the display of Nazi symbols a crime. . . The swastika is already banned in Germany. A previous attempt to ban it across the EU in early 2005 failed after objections from several governments, including the British.
