EU - Hindus opposing EU swastika ban

(BBC)
Hindus in Europe have joined forces against a German proposal to ban the display of the swastika across the European Union. Ramesh Kallidai of the Hindu Forum of Britain said the swastika had been a symbol of peace for thousands of years before the Nazis adopted it. He said a ban on the symbol would discriminate against Hindus.
