‘Namaste’, the traditional Indian greeting of respect made by putting hands in a praying position & bowing, has made its way into many health & spiritual modalities, including those from China, Japan, & elsewhere in Asia. Most yoga classes begin & end with it. When the ‘Namaste Trump’ rally associated it with Hindutva ideology & the genocide against Muslims in northeast Delhi going on at the same time as the rally, it transformed that greeting from a term of respect into a salutation of Indian fascists. Before Hindutva ideology & practices are demolished, ‘namaste’ will be the least of its cultural, economic, social, & political devastations.
