Samprajna Institute Prepares to Launch Hindu Media Relations Project
With his controversial movie “The Love Guru,” Anglo commedian Mike Myers provoked an international protest from the Hindu community. However, some of the negative stereotypes of Hindus portrayed in “The Love Guru” are often unintentionally repeated in television, radio, and the press by journalists, who often times know little about Hindus and their community. In order to correct unintentional media bias against Hindus, the Samprajña Institute is preparing to launch the Hindu Media Relations Project, which aims to achieve the following objectives:
- Develop better strategies for framing stories about Hindus.
- Provide courses and seminars for media representatives.
- Work closely with members of the media and Hindu community to develop these courses.
- Create a database of media reports.
To achieve these objectives, the Samprajña Institute seeks volunteers from the Hindu community and seeks volunteer journalists in television, radio, magazine and newspaper industries for their help in developing these courses.
