Whenever @narendramodi comes to town, Hindus like @tulsigabbard and Hindu orgs come under attack by activists trying to connect them to Hindu nationalism. @mehdihasan takes it further by connecting them to a mass murderer. This is wrong. This is tiring. This is Hinduphobia. 1/5
@mehdihasan claims Anders Breivik was motivated to kill by Hindu nationalism. Breivik repudiates Hindu nationalism in failing to take to the streets. He never even mentions the RSS. But Breivik mentions Christianity over 2,000x, Bible more than 300x, Zionism/Jews 300x.2/5
Would @mehdihasan point to Islamic scripture or Muslim advocates as responsible for ISIS or 9/11 since OBL used them to justify his attack? He wouldn't, because it would be wrong. But Hindus are uniquely acceptable to be targeted thus? 3/5
Drawing a line from Breivik to New Zealand to El Paso is accurate, but claiming that Hindu activism motivated the El Paso killer is stupid. Implying that Hindus among the 50,000 welcoming the PM somehow condone Breivik is more than that--it is Hinduphobia. 4/5
Check your source. @ranaayyub faced ignominy for retweeting Pieter Friedrich's false assessment of @tulsigabbard. @mehdihasan identifies PF as an anti-Modi activist. He's right. Then why did @theCaravan prop up PF as a journalist despite @hinduamerican's warning? 5/5

Why am I speaking out about this with no connection to RSS? Because these attacks are used to smear an Indian PM. They’ve been used to smear @TulsiGabbard, & they’ve been used to tear down Hindus advocating for textbook accuracy. Those are the dots to be connected. @Hinduamerican
Thanks all for tagging the right @mehdirhasan!
