Yvette Claire Rosser (born January 31, 1952), is an American writer and scholar.


Rosser first visited India in 1970, where she met her guru, Neem Karoli Baba,[1] who advised her to go to graduate school.[2] She subsequently attended the University of Texas at Austin, where her Master's thesis in the Department of Asian Studies examined the treatment of India in the social studies curriculum and how India and Hinduism are described in academic treatments. Her 2003 Ph.D. dissertation, Curriculum as Destiny: Forging National Identity in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, is a study of the politics of history in South Asia.


Rosser is a co-creator of the International Day Without Violence held on April 4.[3] She is co-founder of the G. M. Syed Memorial Committee.[4] Its objectives are to educate the international community about G. M. Syed's message of non-violence, democracy, secularism, and the right to self-determination for Sindhis and other oppressed nations, and to advocate and support other organizations promoting human rights, religious tolerance, environmental responsibility, equal rights for women and religious minorities, as well as conflict resolution and peaceful initiatives in Sindh.

She is also on the advisory board of the Baacha Khan Research Centre in Baacha Khan Markaz, Peshawar; and founder of the Badshah Khan Peace Initiative (BKPI), a worldwide movement to promote the life's teachings of Abdul Ghaffar Khan.[citation needed]

She is also known as Ram Rani.[5][5]

Wikipedia bias and censorship[edit]

An anti-Hindu editor, Hornplease, made false allegations about her on the page. Later, the page was deleted (after some unsuccessful deletion attempts).
