AT HINDU CONFERENCE IN INDIA Dr. Dwivedi Talking about the problems of Hindus living abroad, Shri Nilkesh Mehta from UK pointed out that the Hindus living in the metropolitan culture of UK are finding it difficult to maintain their cherished identity as Hindus. Shri Pravesh from South Africa stated that the Hindus of South Africa are being “deprived of the philosophy and history of Bharat,” but that through the constant efforts of the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) and the local residents, the government agencies have started extending cooperation to Hindus.
