The meeting of over 150 Hindu outfits have been scheduled to take place in the state during the month of June and according to the sources, it may happen between 14 to 17 June 2017. The main agenda of the meeting is said to the discussion over the possibility of making India a Hindu Nation “Hindu Rashtra” by 2023, but have they taken into the consideration fate of the minority community? Goans are not happy about it.
According to the sources, the conclave is being organized by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), the sister outfit of Sanatan Sanstha, which is in controversy all the time due to some or the other reason. The recent controversy was the murder of rationalist Dr. Narendra Dabholkar. “The recent election of Yogi Adityanath, who is a strong proponent of Hindu Rashtra with a brute majority shows that people want a Hindu Rashtra in India,” said Uday Dhuri, Spokesperson, HJS. The HJS was established by psychiatrist Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale, who was also the founder of Sanatan Sanstha on October 7, 2002, and its aim is to establish a Hindu nation and protect the Hindu culture.
Uday Dhuri, the spokesperson of HJS told the media that the people of India are open to an idea of Hindu Rashtra. “The recent election of Yogi Adityanath, who is a strong proponent of Hindu Rashtra with a brute majority shows that people want a Hindu Rashtra in India.” “Our conclave will provide direction on how to proceed in this mission,” said Dhuri. According to the prediction made by Dhuri, the Hindu Nation will come into the existence by the year 2023 and the HJS doing its job of uniting all the Hindu outfits to work together in this mission.
The conclave will have the various topics of discussion including Love Jihad, Religious Conversions, Protection of Hindu Religious Places, defamation of Hindu saints and change in the demography of population where local Hindus are being shunted out. “We will devise ways to stop atrocities on the Hindu population. Our Hindu nation will be based along the lines of Chhatrapati Shivaji’s rule, where all religions were respected and none were appeased,” said Dhuri.
Meanwhile the HJS blamed the ruling BJP government for not doing anything for the Hindus describing the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is their ‘, own man’ “There are so many pending issues like uniform civil code, abolition of Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, as well as construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya which has not been tackled so far,” rued Dhuri.
Meanwhile, the Congress did not want lose an opportunity to target the ruling government calling the HJS as the yield of BJP. “These outfits carry out subversive activities with impunity, thanks to the support from the BJP-led government. The government has enough material and proof to ban the Sanatan Sansthan and its sister outfits like HJS, but it turns a blind eye towards them and allows them to take law into their own hands,” said Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant.
The minority community in the state is not at all happy with the announcement of the meeting of Hindu outfits in Goa. According to one of the Goenkar, Mr. Savio Ribeiro,
the VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) and RSS (Rashtriya Swayansevak Sangh) aka Sangh Parivar has backed the government through some of its ‘beguiling communal honchos’ and it is increasingly seen consolidating their plan towards making of our great nation a “Hindu Rashtra”. “We have full right to publicly voice dissent, to chose the way & practice of worship and to chose what to eat,” says Savio Ribeiro.
The nation where the women are being gang raped and killed brutally being overlooked by the government with the moderate sentences to the accused and the cow slathering is being criminalized with a heavy jail term for the consumption of beef. “Scary and very worrisome as it appears, Will we see it formenting the eventual ‘ethnic cleansing’ of all non-Hindus in India? Will these supposedly suspected state-sponsored moves covertly crush and disenfranchise the non-Hindus to an ultimate genocide? What’s with the Hindu Rashtra? Isn’t every citizen guaranteed of his/her social and religious rights to practice freely as a proud Indian? Aren’t all we Indians “Human Beings” irrespective of our faith, our beliefs, our diverse culture and our history? Aren’t we all ONE PEOPLE aspiring towards living harmoniously and coexisting together without the other feeling threatened?,” says Savio.
