DIPF is a think tank which works to articulate policy impacts on the Dharmic communities in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. These policies can originate from central or local governments and other policy-making institutions. DIPF has worked on the caste legislation since 2013 by providing briefing notes, have contributed by arranging seminar’s concerning Grooming and Entrapment of Hindu boys and girls and recently launched a ground-breaking documentary concerning the plight of Pakistani Hindus – ‘Pakistani Hindu – Who am I’ at the House of Commons on 20 June 2018 and then to 20 other venues throughout the country.
The purpose of the think tank is to establish a forum for public and private discussion of issues concerning the British Dharmic communities. These discussions will also include events and issues originating outside the UK that affect the British Dharmic communities, directly or indirectly. The aim will be to circulate the reflections sponsored by the forum through conferences, seminars publications in print and an Internet website. The functioning of the think tank forum will involve regular seminars, open to the public and made available by using social and other media. Conduct interviews with leading thinkers and public figures on critical policy matters and political events and intellectual concerns.
