Panaji (Goa) – Hindu Rashtra is a right of the Hindu majority of India. The Seventh All India Hindu Convention was held to provide ideological as well as practical directions to achieve this. The convention which concluded recently, saw enthusiastic participation from pro-Hindu delegates from across the nation. The delegates in the convention passed a number of resolutions including the demand to declare India and Nepal as Hindu Nations. Sadguru (Dr.) Charudatt Pingale (national guide, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti) said that the convention was attended by more than 375 delegates of over 175 organizations, from 18 states of India as well as Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. He was speaking during the Seventh All India Hindu Convention’s closing press conference. Shri. Anil Dhir (National Secretary, Bharat Raksha Manch), Shri. Upanand Brahmachari (Editor, Hindu Existence), Shri. Chetan Rajhans (National Spokesperson, Sanatan Sanstha) and Shri. Ramesh Shinde (National Spokesperson, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti) were also present during the press conference.
While announcing the common agenda, Sadguru (Dr.) Pingale said that it was decided to run a host of programs across the country to bring the idea of Hindu Nation to the masses. These programs would include ‘Hindu Rashtra Jagruti Sabha’, village level ‘Hindu Rashtra-jagruti Baithak’ (public awareness campaigns), ‘Hindu Rashtra Parisamvad’ (symposia on Hindu Rashtra), ‘Hindu Rashtra Sampark Abhiyan’ (outreach programs), ‘Hindu Rashtra-jagruti and Sant-sanghatan’ programs during the 2019 Prayag Kumbhmela. Also, a number of programs will be initiated to tackle the growing malpractices in the education, business, administrative and political sectors and provide relief to the people. This will include nationwide movements, press conferences, public awareness campaigns etc.
Mr. Upanand Brahmachari said that, In the regime of Ms. Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal, local Hindus, BHP activists and people’s representatives who were elected in Panchayat elections were killed. In West Bengal, law and order has totally deteriorated. The ruling Trinamool Congress does not allow the opposition parties even to contest the elections. Trinamool carries malpractices in the elections. The Democracy does not even exists in West Bengal. Therefore, President’s rule should be promulgated in the West Bengal.
Shri. Anil Dhir (Odisha) highlighted the pitiful state of Hindus in Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. They said that the atrocities against the Hindu brethren there have increased manifold. Hindus being converted, murdered, Hindu women raped, their property looted has become a regular occurrence. They said that the Indian government should take strong measures to put an end to this genocide of Hindus abroad.
Shri. Ramesh Shinde spoke on the upcoming Loksabha elections of 2019. He said that a pro-Hindu party forming the government is always preferable to one by some ‘secular’ party, but the question still stands whether pro-Hindu political parties feel the need for Hindu support. Once in power, all political parties without exception neglect to fulfil their promises to the Hindus. While you have Muslim maulanas in Kairana (Uttar Pradesh) issuing fatwas against voting for the BJP, you also see Christian priests praying to ‘God’ to change the government. The pro-Hindu parties can mollycoddle the minorities all they want, but the fact is that these are their true sentiments. In many states, political parties with opposite ideologies are setting aside their differences to form a united front against Hindutva. With all this in mind, it is time that the majority pro-Hindus stop blindly trusting the political parties and start unitedly placing their demands before the parties. To this end, a Hindu ‘election manifesto’ will be prepared after studying the problems of Hindus across the nation. The demand for Hindu Rashtra will be a prominent part of this manifesto.
Shri. Chetan Rajhans said that the Constitution of India guarantees everyone the right to freedom of movement. He said that the BJP government’s decision to ban Shri. Pramod Muthalik’s (Founder-President, Sri Ram Sene) entry into Goa is an insult to the constitution and that the All India Hindu Convention unanimously condemns this move. He said that the Archbishop of Goa has asked the Christian community to take active part in the state politics by claiming that the Constitution is in danger; while the truth is that the Archbishop will never speak up against the Nigerian, Russian and European tourists whose activities are the real danger to Goan people and culture.
