hmd_logo_articleHindu Mahasabha of America calls upon Hindus all over the world  to observe August 14th as the Hindu Memorial Day with the purpose of never forgetting the long and most debilitating historical experience ever faced by any community in the course of human history. The significance of August 14th lies in the fact that this is the day back in 1947 when a large chunk of Hindu territory was handed over to the tormentors of the Hindu society without much of a fight. Hindu Mahasabha of America will be observing the day as a day of rememberance.

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”
— George Santayana
