Convention for establishing a Hindu nation to render justice to the community

The sixth All India Hindu Convention, which kicked off at Ramnath temple in Ponda on Wednesday, passed a resolution demanding that the cow be declared the national animal. The topic for this year’s convention is ‘Need for unity of Hindu community and Saints for establishing the Hindu Nation’.

Charudatta Pingale of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) said, Hindus will never get justice in the present democratic set-up and establishing a Hindu nation is the only remedy to all their problems.

With regard to demands for ban on Sanatan Sanstha, Sadhwi Saraswati, president of Sanatan Dharma Prachar Seva Samiti of Chhindwada, Madhya Pradesh, warned that if a ban was imposed on the HJS and the Sanatan Sanstha, several ‘sanatans’ would grow out of it.

‘Deformed’ history

Another resolution demanded that the Centre constitute a national history committee to remove the portions of ‘deformed’ history from all textbooks.

The convention also passed a resolution demanding that Hindus be taken as members in the fact-finding committees for religious riots. The convention is being attended by representatives of Hindu organisations from across the country and from Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

‘Pseudo democracy’

Ramesh Shinde, national spokesperson of the HJS, said, “Pseudo democracy imposed by the British on India will have to be done away with. Prior to the arrival of the Muslim invaders and the British, India was a capable Hindu nation. Then we had the economics of Koutilya, sciences of architecture, dance.”

“Under these circumstance, why should we prepare a separate blue print for establishing the Hindu nation? Instead, we are making a blue print to remove the pseudo democracy imposed on us by the British,” he added.
