Also, Obama isn't running for office. Gabbbard is, and her Hindu nationalist sympathies are unacceptable.
Reminder, my basic point is: Tulsi Gabbard has extensive, fairly well-documented links with Hindu nationalism, a political ideology that US voters should learn about before supporting Gabbard's presidential bid.
Answer 1: Obama worked with & said some kinda gross stuff supporting Modi, but he did not attend Hindu nationalist events, voice support for the RSS agenda, and take Hindutva money. Gabbard does.
Answer: Gabbard wants to run for President, and so opened up her views for public debate. Her politics - not her religion - is at issue. Also, many Hindus are on the frontlines opposing Hindu nationalism. Gabbard knows that.
Answer: Gabbard's ties with #Hindutva are well documented. Look into it for yourself. This is really, exactly my point: American voters should do their own research and think about if Gabbard's Hindu nationalist sympathies are OK. I think they are not.
