Jai Shri Ram

Jai Shri Ram[a] (Jaya Śrī Rāma) adalah sebuah ekspresi seruan dalam bahasa Indic, yang diterjemahkan menjadi "Kejayaan untuk Tuan Rama" atau "Kemenangan untuk Tuan Rama".[6] Seruan tersebut dipakai oleh umat Hindu sebagai penyambutan informal,[7] sebagai simbol ketaatan terhadap kepercayaan Hindu,[8] atau untuk perlindungan terhadap emosi yang terpusat pada berbagai keyakinan.[9][10][11]

Seruan tersebut dipakai oleh organisasi-organisasi nasionalis Hindu India seperti Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), Partai Bharatiya Janata (BJP) dan sekutu-sekutu mereka, yang memakai slogan tersebut sejak akhir abad ke-20 sebagai alat untuk meningkatkan visibilitas Hindu di tempat-tempat umum dan dipakai sebagai seruan pertempuran. Namun sayangnya di India slogan tersebut sering disalahgunakan untuk kemudian dipakai dalam kekerasan komunal melawan orang-orang dari kepercayaan dan/atau golongan lain.[23]
