People who believe in secularism, religious tolerance and right to follow different faiths should join hands together to thwart the evil designs of Sangh Parivar after Narendra Modi-led BJP Government came to power at the Centre, the speakers at the conference held here on Thursday on ‘Social harmony and secularism’ have appealed.
A resolution passed in this connection at the conference said the minorities and the dalits were under constant threat from the Sangh Parivar after the BJP came to power at the Centre. The meticulously-planned attacks being unleashed against the minorities and the dalits had categorically proved that they would not allow any view to be expressed against what they were practicing.
While the people were believing in the principle of ‘Unity in diversity,’ the ‘Hindu Rashtram’ principle being preached by Sangh Parivar would undermine the nation’s unity and tranquillity. Hence, Indians should join hands together to thwart these evil designs, the speakers noted.
The conference was jointly organised by Communal Harmony Action Committee, People’s Movement for India and Minorities Welfare Committee, in which M.K.M. Syed Ahmed Kabir, president, Communal Harmony Action Committee, Rt. Rev. A. Jude Paulraj, Bishop of Palayamkottai RC Diocese, Most Rev. J.J. Christdoss, Bishop of Tirunelveli CSI Diocese, U. Vasuki, vice-president, All India Democratic Women’s Association and others spoke.
