CNN aired a program demeaning Hindus around the world in its first episode of the "believer series". Its controversial director Reza Aslan picked a small sect of Aghoris in Varanasi while stating his intent was to showcase a story about Hindus. There appears to be a deviant intent to depict Hindus as cannibals and to highlight the caste system. This is a smear campaign to malign Hindus around the world. CNN sought no advice or opinions of Hindu experts from our community before producing or airing the show. This will have disastrous effect on the psyche of our young children. It is humiliating and will result in Hinduphobia. We need to boycott CNN to seek justice for our cause and prevent NEWS MEDIA outlets in future to not to misuse their power of mass reach and trust to air stories and make us vulnerable. We are only 1% of the population and we need your support to make our voices heard and avoid a negative stereotype of Hindu bashing in USA and around the world.

Educate the public about the various measures being taken by the Hindu world to protest the actions of CNN.

Yes. Boycottcnn.org is an initiative of the US Hindu Alliance (USHA), a national non-profit organization of Hindus in America to promote and protect the rights and interests of Hindus worldwide.
No. This is a non-partisan, non-profit initiative aimed at educating the public about CNN’s media bias, unfair and unethical journalistic practices as it relates to the coverage on Hindus. We welcome those who are liberal, conservative, centrist and those who are independent or have no political views as long as they wish to protect Hindu interests.
Yes. Any law-abiding citizen who believes and accepts the goals of the US Hindu Alliance (visit www.ushaonline.org for more information about the goals and activities of USHA) can apply for volunteering opportunities.
Upon verification of compliance with all of the above demands set forth by USHA, the campaign will be suspended. In the absence of responsible and conciliatory gestures by CNN, the campaign will expand to include more actions by the Hindu world that will further diminish its reputation and revenues.
