Honorable Mr. Chandra Arya, who initiated a private member bill to designate November as a Hindu Heritage Month in Canada was speaking at an event in Surrey on December 26, 2022 where he addressed the Hindu Community of Metro Vancouver.

The event was organized by North American Hindus Association (NAHA) to discuss issues related to Hindus in Canada, Canada-India Relations, Indo-Pacific Strategies, & the declaration of November as a Hindu Heritage Month in Canada.

Audience asked him various questions regarding issues related to Hindus in Canada and he gave all the appropriate answers. In my personal opinion Mr Arya is working for the community as a proud Hindu keeping his identity above & beyond politics.
