Latest Hub Encounter

Panaji: Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) created mass awareness among the public through movement ‘Maintain the honour of the National flag’ on the occasion of 15th August .
                         The National Flag is the pride of the Nation ! Unfortunately, most of the Indians remember this only on 15th August and 26th January. On these days National flags are paraded with pride. These very small flags made from paper and plastic appear to be strewn on roads, garbage, drainages, etc. right from the evening of these national days. The plastic flags do not degrade immediately, and as a result, one witnesses the desecration of the National flags for several days, HJS has said in a press note released here.
“Therefore, to stop the desecration of the National flag, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is enlightening through the movement ‘Maintain the honour of the National flag’ for last 16 years. As a part of this movement, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti had also filed a Public Interest Litigation (103/11) in the Bombay High Court. During the hearing of this petition, the High Court issued orders to the Government to take steps to stop disrespect to the National flag”
. Accordingly, the Central and Maharashtra State Home Ministries and the Education Department have issued circulars to this effect. Under this movement, lectures on ‘Maintain the honour of the National flag’ were organised in 6 schools, CDs were played on 8 local cable TV channels for wakening patriotism, enlightening through social media, arranging ‘Krantigatha exhibition at 5 places etc. were carried out. Similarly, memorandum on ‘Maintain the honour of the National flag’ were submitted to the administrative and police officers at 10 places and 31 educational institutions. This movement was implemented by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti throughout the country, the press note.
