Action towards Religious Discrimination in Howard County, MD

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

Over the past four years, our plea for establishment of the right to practice our religious freedom as an Indian - American and Hindu community in our own place of worship in Howard County has been repeatedly denied. With the rise and development of Hindu community in Howard County , our need for a place to congregate just as our Christian, Muslim, and Jewish neighbors already do, is completely justified. Also, Surrounding counties have supported their constituents’ freedom to worship. To encourage religious equality, Howard County Executives should lend a hand to Hindu communities by permitting to establish the first Hindu temple (Jagannath temple) in the county.

This petition is to exhibit the support that this community has in being inclusive of religious and spiritual practices and in changing the decisions of the executives elected to support their constituents.
