According to their website Equality Labs is ” is an Ambedkarite South-Asian progressive power-building organisation”. It’s members include Dalits, Bhaujans, Adivasis, Muslim, Buddhists, Sikh and Christian South-Asians. Glaringly missing are Hindus, and Jains. Equality Labs uses community research, cultural and political organising, popular education and digital security to fight the oppressions of caste apartheid, Islamophobia, white supremacy, and religious intolerance.
Equality Labs Political Director is Sharmin Hossain, a Bangaldeshi-American who has utter contempt for Hindus and India. Equality Labs is one of the propaganda outlet used by Hindu haters and breaking India forces. Their Uppercaste and Brahmin hate has put many Indians in the US at risk. They actively protested against India’s Citizenship Amendment Act, called Delhi riots ‘anti-muslim pogrom’, and support ‘free Kashmir’ movement. In 2020, Equality Labs made a twisted version of Holi being casteist, connected it to Upper caste and Brahmin supremacy and the rise of BJP and Hindu Fascism. Equality Labs is using Hindu festivals to spread Hindu hatred among unsuspecting people in the West.
