We the undersigned are launching this petition as a protest against Angela Kaaihue, who in the course of her campaign has made abhorrently Hindu-phobic remarks. Ms.Kaaihue is running for U.S. Congress from Hawaii’s 2nd District against Democrat incumbent Shri.Tulsi Gabbard. An overview of her bigotry can be gauged by her statement that “(A vote for Tulsi would be a), a vote for Satan, a vote for devil”.
Hateful words don’t reflect well of a candidate who is running for one of the highest office of the country. Above all, they stand in totally against the multi-cultural, pluralistic and secular ethos embedded deeply in the constitution of the United States.
HCA demands that Ms.Kaaihue immediately withdraw all her Hindu-phobic comments and issue an unconditional apology to the Hindu society in general. Also, in case of her failure to do so, we demand that the Republican party issue a strong rebuke to Ms.Kaaihue for her comments and disqualify her from primary membership of the Republican party.
