HT & One India Reporters | Rampurhat & Kolkata | 29 January 2015:: In perhaps the biggest ghar wapsi exercise in the state, about 150 tribals were converted at Khoramdanga village in Birbhum district on Wednesday. The ruling party threatened action if coercion, or force, was detected in the process. Central Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leaders including Praveen Togadia were present at a rally held in the area.
According to locals, 98% of the residents of the village, close to the Jharkhand border, were Christians and on Wednesday, all of them were converted.
“Almost 15 to 20 years ago, our forefathers converted to Christianity. Now, we have converted back to Hinduism,” said Bani Murmu and Srimoti Tudu.
VHP district coordinator Churka Tudu said, “This was not a conversion but a home coming ceremony.”
“A programme was today organised at a village near Rampurhat. It was attended by about 1,000 people including Christians, Hindus and Muslims. During the programme, a ‘yajna’ – a ritual of fire – was held and about 150 Christians participated in it and took a pledge to follow Hindu path of life,” state VHP leader Sachindranath Singha said.
The news triggered a barrage of criticism. “Bengal has a history of living in communal harmony and bigots like Togadia will be dealt with ruthlessly,” tweeted Trinamool Congress spokesperson Derek O’Brien.
“A rally was organised for the protection, socio-economic development of Hindus in Birbhum. About 15,000 people turned up at the rally,” said VHP international president Praveen Togadia.
All took part in a very natural a devotional way of a Home coming marked with Fire sacrifice (Yajna). 1000 participants took prasadam. Pic. One India.
“It is unfortunate that the BJP and VHP are politicising religion. They are misguiding the naïve tribals,” said Anubrata Mondal, Trinamool Congress district president.
CPI(M) district secretary Ram Chandra Dome also condemned the incident and said, “It is against our Constitution.”
Asked about the conversion, VHP President Praveen Togadia who addressed a rally at Rampurhat on Wednesday, said, “If someone wanted to become a Hindu. How can we stop it?” “We have announced various schemes to help each and every Hindu family from arranging employment to providing education to Hindu children,” he said.
Addressing the rally, Togadia said the state government should undertake a time-bound programme to deport illegal Bangladeshi Muslims “else Bengal would soon become greater Bangladesh”.
“We didn’t force anyone to change their religion. This is not conversion as projected by the media as no legal procedure was followed which is needed for conversion,” he said, adding that the programme was attended by VHP National Secretary Jugal Kishore.
When contacted, Birbhum Superintendent of Police Alok Rajoria said he was not aware of any such incident as no complaint had been filed in this regard.
Trinamool Rajya Sabha MP and party spokesperson Derek O’Brien expressed concern over the alleged conversion. “Initial reports suggest those converted at the VHP rally are BJP workers who were lured. Let me say this that if there is a hint of coercion or forcible conversion the matter will be dealt with seriously,” he said, adding that the government has already started an inquiry. [end].
WITHIN ONE MONTH
Some Hindu Organisations have taken very seriously the coinage like ‘bigots’ and ‘will be dealt with ruthlessly’ by RS MP Derek O’Brien (TMC) against Dr Praveen Togadia in twitter. If he does not beg apology within three days, some Hindu Forums in Delhi are ready to teach a lesson to ‘bigot Brien’ and he ‘will be dealt with ruthlessly’ by Delhi public.

Talibani Muslims want Namaj in Schools, but prevent Saraswati Puja there. Severe religious persecution on Hindus is a grave concern in Murshidabad.
Ensure Saraswati Puja in Schools in Basant Panchami and Religious Practices for Hindus in Murshidabad: Calcutta High Court.
Upananda Brahmachari | Kolkata | 23 January 2015:: Hon’ble Calcutta High Court had to pass its orders in consecutively on 20.01.2015 and 22.01.2015 to protect the traditional and religious rights of Hindus to worship Mother Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge, Learning and Fine Arts. Muslim fundamentalists in Murshidabad district have been putting pressures for stopping Hindu rituals including Saraswati Puja in Basant Panchami in school premises. In this context, Senior advocate of Calcutta, Sri Rama Prasad Sarkar filed a public interest litigation in the Calcutta High Court.
On the basis of a newspaper reporting (Bartaman dt. 10/12/2014) the learned lawyer Sri Rama Prasad Sarkar filed the public interest petition [W.P. 1516 (W) of 2015] in the Calcutta High Court for violation of Article 25, 26, 27 and Article 28, in cases of persecuted and deprived Hindus loosing their religious rights in the district of Murshidabad in Indian State of West Bengal while India is a secular country.
As per report Murshidabad district is facing a severe demographic change due to huge Muslim infiltration from neighboring Islamic Bangladesh and fanatical Islamic groups are controlling the politics ans society through Mosques and Madrasas along with the border areas and inside the border areas too. Lots of organisations of Islamic fundamentalists are showing their muscle and arms power to stop the Hindu rituals etc. for the minority Hindus in the district. As per the news reporting, the fundamentalists in Murshidabad are somehow managing a Taliban like rule to stop blowing of conch (sankh) in evening, decorating Hindu houses with Alpana (drawing ritualistic design on floor and wall with water and rice paste) including observation of Lakshmi Puja and Saraswati Puja. Muslim majority Managing Committees in many Schools have objected and prevented Saraswati Puja in schools premises in the district of Murshidabad as the report flashed the truth. Even the Talibans of Murshidabad are threatening to kill the minority Hindus if the Islamic fatwas of ‘STOP HINDU WORSHIP’ are not to maintain anyway.
Advocate Sarkar appeared in person in the Court of Chief Justice Hon’ble Smt Majula Chellur with the plea that here in India one can practice his religion as he/she likes. Then why the Taliban regime in Murshidabad district is depriving the religious rights of Hindus in many ways? What is the role of the State and District administration to restore the rights of the deprived Hindus there? He indicates the administrative and police failure to uphold the constitutional provisions to protect the rights of Hindus?
Murshidabad has Muslim population at more than 65 percent far outnumbering Hindus at 35 percent and below .
Initially the Calcutta High Court accepted the case. The Bench of Chief Justice Mrs. Manjula Chellur and Mr. Joymalya Bagchi (J) disposed the matter through passing a order, “Though we appreciate the concern and the anxiety entertained by the petitioner in the present writ petition, we fail to understand why the institution concerned at Murshidabad is not seeking any such protection either from the police or from this Court by filing a complaint or application respectively. It is needless to say that every citizen of this country has freedom to follow the religion he chooses to follow and all the rituals connected to such ceremonies. If anyone intends to curtail one’s faith and freedom of conscience to follow a particular religion, definitely the Court has to step in and protect such right of the individual. …..
However, we make it clear that the respondent authorities have constitutional obligation to take into consideration the situation and protect the right to freedom of a particular religion if any complaint is made in this regard by the institution concerned.”
As such the Murshidabad district authorities are put in a pressure to see the cases of deprivation in performing any Saraswati Puja as such by the Hindu population in public or Hindu students in school and educational institutions.
In another case [W.P. 411 (W) of 2015] in the Calcutta High Court, it is revealed that Muslims want to rights of Namaj (offering prayer) in the school premise while objecting Saraswati Puja once in a year in the school.
In a land mark order Hon’ble Justice Dipankar Datta passes an order in W.P. 411 (W) of 2015 on 22.01.2015 that, “Having regard to the documents, it is difficult to come to a prima facie finding at this stage that the practice of students being allowed to offer ‘namaj’ during school-hours and within the school premises has been continuing for long.
In view thereof, I am afraid no interim protection can be granted to the petitioner.
Since it has been ascertained from Ms. Hasin, learned advocate for the petitioner that he is not against holding of ‘Saraswati Puja’, I hold that the school shall be entitled to observe ‘Saraswati Puja’ on 24th /25th January, 2015. Insofar as the resolution of the dispute raised by the petitioner is concerned, I am of the view that affidavit ought to be invited not only from the Headmaster of the school but also from the State Government.”
It has no difficulties to understand from above, what is the real situation of Hindus where they are minorities in Bengal (not only Bengal, the situation of minority Hindus are same in the Muslim majority areas in all over India). No main stream media or the politicos come forward to help the Hindus in some perilous Islamic hell in Bengal. This ‘School Jihad’, i.e. stopping Hindu celebrations in school and allowing Namaj in schools at the same time is rampantly growing in all Muslim majority areas in West Bengal as authenticated reports reached to Hindu existence Forum.
Post Script: Hindu Existence Forum is dedicated to surface all such Hindu persecution in this land and want to strengthen the struggle of Hindus in Bengal and Bharat for their dignity and rights. Any Help/donation is most Welcome.

Baijnath Mahadev, Agar Malwa (MP): The Only Hindu Temple of Lord Shiva Built (Renovated) By a British Couple.
Ragini Singh | HENB | Malwa | 17 January 2015:: The British ruled Indian subcontinent for hundreds of years, and built many churches and cathedrals. But in the 1880s, a Shiva temple in Agar Malwa, Madhya Pradesh, was renovated and almost rebuilt by Lt. Col. Martin as per the wish o her wife — the only Shiva temple ever made by an Englishman in India.
In 1879, when there was British were ruling in India, Lt. Col. Martin of Agar Malwa was leading the British army in the war against Afghanistan.
Col. Martin used to regularly send messages of his well-being to his wife. The war continued for long & Lady Martin stopped getting messages. She was very upset in the vicinity of Malwa far away from Kabul or Afghanistan.
Once riding on her horse, she was to pass by the temple of Baijnath Mahadev. She was quite attracted to the sound of Conch & Mantra. She went inside the Temple and came to know that the Brahmanas were worshipping Lord Shiva. They saw her sad face and asked her problem. She explained everything to them. They told her that Lord Shiva listens to the prayers of devotees and takes them out of difficult situations in no time. With the advice of the Brahmanas she started the “Laghurudri Anushtthan” of the Mantra: “Om Namah Shivaya” for 11 days. She prayed to Lord Shiva that if her husband reaches home safely, then she would get the temple renovated.
On the last of the “Laghurudri” a messenger came and gave a letter to her. Her husband had written: “I was regularly sending messages to you from the battle grounds but suddenly the Pathan Muslims surrounded us from all sides. We were entrapped in a situation where there was no scope of escaping death. Suddenly, I saw a Yogi of India with long hair, carrying a Trident (weapon with three pointers- Trishul). His personality was amazing and he was manoeuvring his weapon with a magnificent style. Seeing this great man, the Pathans started running back. With his grace our bad times turned into moments of victory. This was possible only because of that man of India wearing a lion skin & carrying a three-pointer weapon. That great Yogi told me that I should not worry and that he had come to rescue me because he was very pleased with my wife’s prayers.”
Tears of joy were falling down to the eyes of Lady Martin while reading the letter. Her heart was overwhelmed with joy and reverence. She fell beneath the stone symbol (Lingam) of Lord Shiva and burst in tears.
After a few weeks Col. Martin returned. Lady Martin narrated the whole incident to him. Now both husband & wife became devotees of Lord Shiva. In 1883 they donated Rs. 15,000 for renovating the temple. The information engraved slab for the same is still there in the Baijnath Mahadev Temple of Agar Malwa. This is the only Hindu temple built by the British.
When Lady Martin sailed for England with Col Martin, she said that they would make a Shiva Temple at their home and pray to Him till the end of life. The later life of Martins in England are not know to us!
The local Govt and the Shri Baijnath Mahadev Pravandh Samiti are managing all the pilgrimage activities related to Baijnath Dham, Agar-Malwa, including health-hygiene, daily prasadm, dormitory guests house etc in a commendable way.
The Baijnath Pashu (cattle) Mela of Agar-Mlawa on the month of Chaitra and Kartik months are quite famous. Thousand of pilgrims use to converge here in every Purnima, Mondays of Shravan month and on also in Shiva Ratri. The last Monday of Shravan month is celebrated as the annual function of “Shiv Swari”. Lakhs of devotees come here to participate in this rally of Baba Baijanath Ji in Agar- Malwa.

Clarion Call for Hindu Rashtra from the Big VHP Golden Jubilee Rally in Kolkata.
IF YOU’RE AGAINST FORCED CONVERSIONS, MAKE LAWS: MOHAN BHAGWAT.
Hindus are ready to take all the challenges to save their Motherland at any cost : Dr Pravin Togadia.
Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Kolkata | 20 Dec 2014:: The West Bengal Unit of Vishwa Hindu Parishad organised a ‘Virat Hindu Sammelan’ at Sahid Minar ground of Kolkata on 20 Dec 2014 on its national programme for its 50th Foundation celebrations. In a full packed programme over 1 lakh Hindus were present to protest Jihad fundamentalism in Bengal and demanded the Rights of Bengali Hindus being challenged by the Ruling party’s (TMC) Islamic appeasement.
Dr. Togadiya said that Hindus have taken the vow to stop all subversive activities of any party including TMC and Hindus will save the Motherland. Hindus are not dependent upon any political party but they will win the war. Hindus will not sell cows and stop the cow slaughter. They will detect the illegal infiltrators and drive them away. They will take the way of Swadeshi and Swavlamvan (self dependence) and enrich the country’s finance and rural industries. In this decade of Hindutva, Hindus will be more powerful and make this country as a real Hindu Rashtra (Hindu Nation-State).
Dr Togadia has emphatically mentioned that Bengali Hindu will uproot the Jihadi Culture of Bengal at any cost very soon. In his speech Dr Togadia touched the sensational issues like Christian conspiracy for conversion, Love Jihad, Bangladeshi Muslim infiltration and enactment of common civil code in Bharat. He also also warned the various anti Hindu elements who are torturing Hindu minorities in neighbouring countries and anywhere in this world.
Dr Mohan Bhagwat of RSS, Sri Ashok Ji Shinghal and other prominent Hindu leaders and Saints are also present in the today’s mighty confluence of Sahid Minar Ground, Kolkata. Saints of Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Ramakrishna order, Vaishnavaites and Sikhs were present in the big dais for bestowing their blessings to the Hindu activists under the banner of VHP.
Dr Mohan Bhagwat and Dr Pravin Togadia are seen alongwith other Saints in Kolkata Virat Hindu Sammelan at Shahid Minar on 20.12.2014.
In a very disciplined and well organised meeting the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Cheif, Dr Mohan Bhagwat stressed upon the unity of Hindus in this crucial point of time under the thrust of communal and political excesses when malfunctioning of Bengal scenario is felt very badly.
Expressing his support for the anti-conversion bill to be proposed by the Central Govt, Bhagwat asked Opposition parties to facilitate bringing law in Parliament, if they did not like conversion. Dairing all political rivals, he says ‘ghar wapsi’ will continue to welcome all Hindus once converted into Islam or Christianity under religious repressions or any unfortunate situations.
The Sangha Chief proclaimed that Bharat will be declared as a Hindu Rashtra before loosing the the youth of the present generation.
Shri Ashok Singhal, the living legendary of Rama Janmabhoomi Movement could not be present in the meeting but sent a message describing that ‘all the hurdles of constructing a magnificent Shri Ram Temple in Ayodhya will be vanished very soon under the blessings of Lord Sri Ram. But, for that golden moment of Hindu History, Hindus must work with full devotion as Shri Hanumanji did for Prabhu Ram’.
Four big rallies reached from 4 different parts of the ‘City of Joy’ covering the points of Sealdah, Howrah, Ganja Park (South Kolkata) and Shyambazar (North Kolkata). Saffronizing the so called ‘Secular’ texture of Kolkata, the ‘Hindutva-vadis’ of Bengal came together in the capital city of Bengal to show their solidarity for a pure Hindu cause.
Dr Sachin Singha, the chief area co-ordinator of VHP, Bengal unit thanked all Hindus concerned for their whole hearted participation in this events for its grand success.

VHP’s Golden Jubilee ‘Virat Hindu sammelan’ at Bandra Kurla Complex, Mumbai on 14 December 2014.
VHP presses for anti-conversion law: ‘At one point, the entire world was Hindu’

Express News Services | Mumbai | 15 Dec 2014:: Notwithstanding mass “ghar wapsi” events by saffron groups in Uttar Pradesh, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leaders on Sunday pressed for an anti-conversion law, accusing Christians and Muslims of wooing Hindus towards their religions.
“At a point of time, the entire world was Hindu. There were 700 crore Hindus, and now there are just 100 crore. Currently, there are 82 per cent Hindus in this country. If we don’t create awareness and take steps now, in a few decades this number will drop to 46 per cent. If conversions are wrong, then why is the government not passing an anti-conversion law?” asked senior VHP leader Praveen Togadia addressing Virat Hindu Sammelan here.
Another VHP leader Narendra Maharaj from Ratnagiri said the Hindu society is tolerant and does not indulge in religious conversions, but it is the Christians and the Muslims who convert people.
The function, held at MMRDA grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex, was organised to mark the 50th year of the VHP. According to leaders of the saffron outfit, around one lakh supporters attended the event. Besides Hindu religious leaders, VHP and RSS supporters, the event was also attended by those belonging to the Jain and the Buddhist communities.
Emphasising the need to create awareness to stop conversions, Jain Muni Vinamra Sagar said, “Hindus who embraced other religious should undergo reconversions.”
Earlier, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board had accused the VHP and other Hindu outfits of luring poor Muslims for conversion in view of a Hindu outfit |planning a mass “ghar wapsi” event on December 25 in Aligarh.
Earlier in Agra, there were reports of Hindu groups forcibly converting people. The issue had led to an uproar in Parliament.
Around a dozen senior leaders from the VHP, the RSS and sister outfits addressed the event and raised issues such as religious conversions, cow slaughter, unity among Hindus, Ram Janmabhoomi row and love jihad.
Speaking on love jihad, Bhopal’s Sadhvi Saraswati said Hindu girls are misguided and married into families belonging to other religions so that they can be converted.

Omar Rashid | The Hindu | Mumbai | 15 Dec 2014:: Criticising the Samajwadi Party government’s opposition to the “ghar vapsi” programmes planned in western Uttar Pradesh, senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Sunday dared the party to lend its support to an anti-conversion law if it really thought conversion was “wrong.”
Mr. Togadia also reiterated the VHP demand for a Ram Temple at Ayodhya, contending that the temple would be “constructed irrespective of anyone’s like or dislike.”
“If conversion is wrong, then, [SP chief] Mulayam Singh, why don’t you come up in Parliament and support a law against conversion… We won’t allow Hindus to be converted. We will protect them,” he said.
Addressing a massive Viraat Hindu Sammelan to commemorate 50 years of the VHP’s existence, Mr. Togadia claimed the ancestors of all Muslims and Christians living in India were Hindus.
“Until Ram mandir is constructed, Hindus will have no honour in India. Ram Mandir will come up whether someone likes it or not,” said Mr. Togadia from a stage adorned by a massive banner of Lord Ram and the proposed Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir.
Several speakers at the event spoke against conversion while propagating the need for Ghar Vapasi to “save” Hindu culture.
There were also sharp references to “love jihad” and “nari sammaan [honour of women]” with warnings to Hindu families to protect their “daughters” from the lure of Muslim boys or face an existential threat. “If we aren’t cautious, soon Hindus will be outnumbered in India,” Mr. Togadia said.
“You take one Hindu girl with love jihad. But remember she is not the daughter of one Hindu. She is the daughter of 100 crore Hindus. The VHP will protect Hindu daughters,” he said.
RSS joint secretary Dattatreya Hosbale and VHP leader Ashok Singhal were among those present.

Hindutva group seeks donations for Aligarh ‘conversion camp’
Undated pamphlets of Dharam Jagaran Samiti seeks a donation of Rs. 5 lakh for converting a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for the “ghar vapsi” of a Christian.
Mohammad Ali | The Hindu | Meerut | December 12, 2014:: Ahead of its plans to organise the “biggest ever conversion camp” in Aligarh on December 25, Dharam Jagaran Samiti, a western U.P.-based Hindutva group, on Thursday sought donations to organise the camp.
The undated letters and pamphlets, addressed by Rajeshwar Singh who claimed that conversion is a “costly” affair, have found their way to people’s homes in Aligarh.
The letter seeks a donation of Rs. 5 lakh for converting a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for the “ghar vapsi” of a Christian.
“Ghar vapsi is a costly affair because there are lots of expenses involved. The money comes from society and people indeed give money for the purpose. But when it’s done at a large scale, then more and more volunteers will have to be deployed to raise fund and organise camps,” Mr. Singh said in the letter.
” About Rs. 5 lakh is spent on the Ghar vapsi of a Muslim and Rs. 2 lakh for that of a Christian, when a volunteer works for the purpose in a year. That is why I request you to donate money and bear expenses of at least one programme,” he requested in the letter.
In an effort to establish his credentials, Mr. Singh also claimed that about 40,000 people, including 2000 Muslims in 20 districts of western UP, have been brought under the fold of Hinduism through his ‘ghar vapsi’ camps. The target is to convert one lakh people, the letter claimed.
Meanwhile, a non bailable warrant was issued by an Agra court against Kishor Valmiki, the main accused in the alleged conversion case in Agra. [Courtesy: The Hindu].
The Hindu Existence Forum (HEF) observes that the Dharam Jagaran Samiti’s (under RSS) ‘Re-Conversion’ programme of Aligarh areas on 25th Dec. 2014 has no illegality at all. Those who were compelled to leave their own faith under any unpalatable situation can obviously return to their own faith without any pressure and allurements. The call of the hearts and the problems of rootlessness cannot be undermined any way. This forum (HEF) is announcing hereby to declare to donate Rs.10,000=00 (Rupees Ten Thousand) to Dharam Jagaran Samiti for their great movements of Hindu Dharma for rehabilitating the marginal people of our blood staying in a rootless condition. Our viewers desirous to add more donation to the great activities through us for strengthening the Hindu activism to establish Dharma in its glorious stature, can send their donation to the account below related to Hindu Empowerment.

Fanatic flare up in Delhi.
Diwali put on a hurdle by fanatic Muslims in Delhi.
Prohibitory orders imposed in Trilokpuri and Majnu ka Tila.
Muslims do not bear the rituals and festivity of the Hindu community very unfortunately.
Communal violence gripped Delhi’s Trilokpuri and Majnu ka Tilla areas during and after Diwali.
HENB | New Delhi | 25 Oct 2014:: Tension gripped east Delhi’s Trilokpuri area after people from two communities clashed over a religious issue on Friday evening. Two persons allegedly suffered bullet wounds during the fight, said doctors at Lal Bahadur Shashtri Hospital. However, no casualty was reported till filing of this report.
Delhi Police has finally imposed curfew and ordered to shoot any miscreant on the spot in East Delhi’s Trilokpuri locality, after communal tension erupted in the locality. Although the crowd has been dispersed now, the situation is still very tense after stone pelting between members of two communities.
Four people were shot at during a clash between Hindu and Muslim communities over an issue of erecting a make shift ‘Mata Ki Chouki ‘ on the side of the outer wall of a mosque during Diwali festival in east Delhi’s Trilokpuri area, as per reports derived from police and others. So far 33 people have been arrested while police said earlier that ten people were arrested Friday and 23 on Saturday for rioting in the area.
Following the incident, police rushed a large contingent of their personnel to the area to bring the situation under control. Several companies of the Rapid Action Force as well as riot control were also deployed. Senior police officers and the Intelligence Bureau sleuths are also reportedly keeping a close watch on the developments. The area DCP is also monitoring the situation. SHOs in the area have been summoned and forces from the nearby district have been roped to maintain peace and harmony.
The incident began on Thursday evening. While police did not divulge the details, sources said two communities clashed over playing of music at a religious gathering in the first instance on the trail of the total disturbance. The Muslims of the locality claimed that listening music of ‘Jagran’ of the Hindu festivals is ‘haram’ and Allah usually turns displeased for all these. As Muslims tried to put troubles to the ‘Jagran’ played in the music system upon some fake claims of their Imams, the tussle started in a moment.
Hindus of the locality raised the points that they usually adjust 365 days in a year for Azan, overnight Milad-un-Nabi, Islamic Jalsa etc. without objections. But, the Muslims dare to stop Hindu festivals for some days even in Hindu majority areas by lodging complain to the police or by utter hooliganism. It is not fair. While Muslims purposely object Hindu festivals, music, drum beats and procession in front of Mosques and through Muslim localities on the plea of disturbance of Allah or Namaz , they hold Namaz in any public place, arrange Islamic functions, erect mosques, open beef shop and Muslim hotels even in Hindu areas. Muslims must keep in mind that this is Hindusthan-Bharat, not Pakistan or Afghanistan where fanatic Muslims always try to skip the religious rights of Hindus. Muslims in India must learn tolerance from the Hindus at least.
There was heavy stone-pelting on Thursday but police managed to bring the situation under control by Friday morning.
Two youths were arrested after which the situation turned normal. However, a scuffle broke out once again on Friday evening when Muslim started to remove the deities from make shift ‘Mata Ki Chouki’ , hundreds of Hindu and Muslim mob soon gathered frenzy and in no time stone pelting began from both sides. The situation was, however, soon taken under control by police by suppressing Islamic provocation raised by some outsiders in the Mosque.
While police denied having opened fire, they said several rounds of tear-gas shells were fired. They had to resort to lathicharge to control the mob. A group of around 200 people was involved in the incident, police said.
A case of rioting has been registered at the Mayur Vihar police station and a search is on to nab more culprits at large.
In another case, fanatic Muslims of Majnu-ka-Tila areas also tried to put disturbance in Diwali festivals in Chandrawal gaon. Some Muslims beat some Children of Mandir Gali area while they were bursting crackers on Thursday evening. These Muslim youths came to throng from adjacent E-Block as reported.
Four policemen and about 30 people were injured in two incidents of clashes between members of two communities in Chandrawal village near Civil Lines in north Delhi, late on Thursday night and Friday morning.
According to the police, the first incident took place at about 10.55 pm on Thursday when a fight broke out between two groups at Chandrawal village, adjacent to the Tibetan Refugee Camp at Majnu Ka Tila near Civil Lines.
The two groups – belonging to two communities in the village – live on opposite sides of a common road.
“When some people from one group were bursting in the area of the other, who belonged to a different community, a fight suddenly broke out between them. The fight turned ugly when they started hurling stones at each other and also damaged buses and cars,” said a police officer.
A constable named Sonu was hit by a stone on his ear and started bleeding. He was rushed to hospital. “However the situation was brought under control in a few hours,” said the officer.
To control the situation Police had to open fire in the air and used tear gas cell.
Police has arrested eight persons for flaring up communal riots and putting hurdles to the duties of govt. officials in Majnu Tila case.
Police conducted peace march and meeting to keep off the tension prevailed in both the areas.

HE Media Bureau | Anand (Gujarat) | Sep 24, 2014:: A man here on Wednesday slapped a Muslim cleric while he was being taken to a court after his arrest for allegedly hurting religious sentiments of a community by making objectionable comments about Navratri, police said.
“A man identified as Rakesh today slapped and pushed Imam Mehadi Hasan just outside the court when police were taking the imam to produce him before the judicial magistrate at Thasra in Kheda district,” a police officer said.
Though the controversial anti Hindu Imam Hasan did not sustain any heavy injury in the incident, as police said, but it was a big hit by Rakesh and the Imam thrashed into the ground by saying ‘Ya Allah!’.
Rakesh Patel is believed to be a VHP hardliner. Read more here in TOI.

Anti Hindu Muslim cleric held by Gujarat Police for his controversial anti-garba remark demeaning Navratri and Hindu festivals.
D Desai & N Dave | Ahmadabad | September 24, 2014:: After severe demands for his arrest by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal, the Gujarat Police on Tuesday picked up Imam Mehdi Hasan for his controversial statement on the Navratri festival and whisked him away to some undisclosed place for interrogation.
The Imam of Thasra in Anand district in central Gujarat had called Navratri, the nine nights of Garba, as the “festival of demons”. He had also demanded a ban alleging that “commercialization of Garba” had completely taken out the religious fervour from it.
Youngsters participating in the festival danced to Bollywood tunes and many went to the events in an inebriated state, the Imam had claimed. He had refused to apologize for his comment stating that he would better prefer to get arrested.
The Imam had made this statement after the VHP and the Bajrang Dal demanded that the Muslims be banned from entering garba venues since it was a Hindu festival and they had nothing to do with it.
At first a rightwing group that identified itself as Hindu Asmita Heet Rakshak Samiti (HAHRS) had issued a diktat in Godhra that Muslim youths should not be allowed to enter garba venues in the town to counter ‘love Jihad’.
Some Hindu organisations owing allegiance to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and its allies also raised the demand for ban on the entry of Muslim youths in the garba venues in the state this year.
Imam Hasan, a resident of Rustampura in Thasra taluka, had first shot into limelight when he tried to put a skull cap on Narandra Modi’s head during the latter’s Sadbhavna fast in 2011. Modi, who had refused to wear a skull cap offered to him at the public meeting, had stated that he didn’t believe in the “politics of appeasement.”
Two police complaints had been lodged against Hasan at Nadiad (West) and Thasra police stations.
An advocate had also filed a case against the Imam at a Gujarat court after the latter made the controversial remarks. Hasan had gone underground after the right-wing activists demanded his arrest for the statements.
Incidentally, it is the first time that garba festivities have attained a communal dimension. Earlier, the festival always passed off peacefully with secular fervour and never had any religious or social tension in the context of Muslim youths.
Earlier VHP warned all concerned in this manner, ” If government remains inactive for stopping Muslims in vibrant Navratri, we’ll take necessary actions”.
VHP & Bajrangdal have woke up now from slumber which have been in hibernation during Narendra Modi’s CM tenure.
VHP had requested all Navratri (Garba) organizers to prevent Muslims entering the venues else VHP would take necessary actions, along with this
VHP has also demanded to revoke ban on time limit of 12 midnight during Navratri.
Accordingly, some Garba organizers maintained the restriction as demanded by VHP.“We won’t allow any Muslim youth to our garba to avoid `love Jihad’,” said P B Baria, organizer of Aadhya Shakti Garba Mahotsav, which draws a crowd of 35,000. “If they come with their families, they are disciplined. So, we will allow Muslim families inside the venue,” Shri Baria said.
“We don’t want any kind of disturbance and hence we have agreed that we will not collect donation from Muslims nor issue passes,” said K T Parikh, organizer of Maa Shakti Garba Group. “We, however have no means to check whether any Muslim or a Hindu is entering the garba venue.”
As an reaction the fundamental Imam Mahendi Hasan said, “Navratri is the festival of demons where drunkards & rapists participate to come & dance wearing different outfits”. This Imam raised a controversy willfully when tried to make then Guharat CM Narendra Modi stupefied by putting a skull cap on Modi during Sadhbhavna mission camp.

Muslim youths barred at garba dance venues in Godhra. That policy should be maintained in all other Hindu festivals also everywhere.
HE News Bureau | Vadodara | 16 Sept 2019:: It may be a hard task to prevent motivated participation of the Muslims in the Hindu festival to humiliate its rituals or to grab Hindu girls for Love Jihad or to put any Jijadi impact otherwise. But Hindus of Godhra issued notice for a ban of Muslims in the Garba Dance Festival Godhra in the soil of controversy, Gujarat. Barely 10 days before the nine-day dance festival kicks off in Gujarat, a rightwing group that identifies itself as Hindu Asmita Heet Rakshak Samiti (HAHRS) has issued a diktat in Godhra that Muslim youths should not be allowed to enter garba venues in the town to counter ‘love Jihad’.
The samiti claims that it issued the diktat as Muslim youths enter garba venues to lure Hindu girls.
On Saturday , VHP leader Dr Pravin Togadia had called for the same in Amreli and said that identity cards of every person should be checked.”We will contact all garba organizers in Gujarat and across the country to request them to check the identity of all youths. Navratri is a religious festival and Muslims should not be allowed here,” Togadia told Times of India, as appeared the matter in its 17 Sept, Delhi Edition.
TOI captures the news as, “Muslim boys luring Hindu girls at garba venues has always remained a problem in Godhra. If Muslims have problem with everything including singing `Vande Mataram’, why should they be allowed at garba venues?” said Jaimin Shah, one of the leaders of HAHRS.
Some organizers have agreed to allow Muslim youths only if they are accompanied by their family. Accord ing to the samiti, they have also received support from major garba organizers in Godhra and formed a team of volunteers to stop Muslim youth.
“Around 1,500 members will keep a check at the venues,” said Shah, adding that the group, which hasn’t registered itself, is holding awareness meetings since over a fortnight.
“We won’t allow any Muslim youth to our garba to avoid `love Jihad’,” said P B Baria, organizer of Aadhya Shakti Garba Mahotsav, which draws a crowd of 35,000. “If they come with their families, they are disciplined. So, we will allow Muslim families inside the venue,” he said.
“We don’t want any kind of disturbance and hence we have agreed that we will not collect donation from Muslims nor issue passes,” said K T Parikh, organizer of Maa Shakti Garba Group. “We, however have no means to check whether any Muslim or a Hindu is entering the garba venue.”
Actually, such restrictions were imposed in some places in United States in a separate way of action where the Hindu organisers of such Hindu festival installed Hindu deities for worship in the entry so that all the participants were compelled to offer sandal paste, sindoor (vermilion) and flowers to the deities as a compulsion with taking prasadam and amritam. With this arrangements all the Muslim participants compelled to avoid such Hindu religious and cultural programmes.
“Those who have not any respect on Motherland as an identical for of Goddess Aadhya Shakti or Mata Durga (Navratri is a special awareness/ consciousness creating festival dedicated to Mata Durga) and who are not ready to utter Vande Mataram, why they are so interested to come to our Garba festival attached to Navratri?”, said one of the organiser to Hindu Existence.
Shri Upananda Brahmachari, Editor of Hindu Existence appreciated the matter with a tips that if Muslim groups of Gujarat or other places are so interested to join Garba or love so much Garba, they should start Garba in Navratri and they should make effort to unveil their women and girls (from burqa) for getting them in their programme. No problem. This policy maintained in Godhra for Garba must be adopted by Hindus in all other religious and cultural programmes tagged with Hindu Dharma, for the sacntity, safety and security of Hindus.

In west UP, RSS’s rakhi drive to fight ‘love jihad’
Rajiv Srivastava | TNN | Lucknow | Aug 8, 2014:: As Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) alleges “love jihad,” the outfit has planned to counter it by “invoking the rakhi bond” in the sensitive western Uttar Pradesh belt.
Beginning on August 10, RSS will carry out a weeklong awareness drive in the region wherein its cadre will tie rakhis to Hindus and ask them to take a pledge to “protect their religion” and chant the mantra: “Yen baddho Bali raja danvendro mahabal, tein twam abhibadhnami raksh machalmachal (Do not fail to protect whosoever ties rakhi on you).”
During the drive, to be conducted between August 10 and 17, RSS plans to tie rakhis on 10 lakh Hindus.
“Each RSS worker from west UP has been asked to tie at least 100 rakhis each in both rural and urban areas. Rakhis would be tied to both men and women. People will also be urged to protect girls from ‘love jihad’,” said RSS’ regional pracharak and in-charge Dharm Jagran (west UP) Rajeshwar Singh.
The region, which political experts say witnessed polarization of votes in the wake of communal clashes, will also see bypolls in at least five seats. BJP has asked UP government to reveal the names of persons involved in forced conversions and curb “love jihad” in west UP.
“The district magistrate concerned has to be informed before any conversion. So the government needs to tell whether the process was followed in Meerut, where a Hindu girl was forced to convert,” said BJP spokesman Chandramohan.
RSS is also planning to conduct similar drives during all important occasions in the Hindu calendar.

Largest Ram Navmi and Hanuman Jayanti Procession at Bhagyanagar (Hyderabad) in Southern India.
Hindus may carry ‘mala (a string of beads)’ in one hand but be ready to fight with ‘bhaalaa (spear)’ in the other ! : Sushri Sadhvi Saraswati
HE Media | Bhagyanagar (Andhra Pradesh) | 09 April 2014:: Over 6 lakhs Hindus took part in the mammoth procession taken out even this year by staunch pro-Hindu activist, Shri. Thakur Rajasingh on the occasion of ‘Sri Ram- Navami’ on 8th April. The procession was taken out from Dhulpet to ‘Hanuman Vyayamshala’ with acclamation of ‘Jai Sri Ram’ en route. Sushri Sadhvi Saraswati participated in the procession as chief guest. The procession was concluded after reaching ‘Hanuman Vyayamshala’. Shri Thakur Raja Singh and Sushri Sadhvi Saraswatiji addressed devout Hindus joining the procession.
Sushri Sadhvi Saraswatiji said:
1. This land is of neither Hyder nor Ali; it is of ‘Bhagyalakshmi’.
2. Now, we will have to carry ‘Mala’ in one hand and fight with ‘bhaalaa’ in the other.
3. It is very unfortunate for Hindus that tax is levied on Amarnath pilgrimage and grants are given to ‘Haj’ pilgrimage.
4. If every Hindu tries to stop cow-slaughter, slaughtering of cows will stop on its own.
5. Bhagavan Srikrushna has given us message, through ‘Bhagavat Geeta’, to fight against the unrighteous.
6. If Hindus are united, anti-nationals like Owaisi will not be able to stay here.
Shri Thakur Raja Singh said:
1. In the course of Kaal-Chakra (Time Cycle), the Ram Rajya is going to be established in Bharat within few months.
2. Police and Army are the protectors of citizen of India. Hindus respect their duties and sacrifice.
3. But, one maroon, who talked about lifting police and army for 15 minutes by describing them impotent, is really an impotent and treason.
4. Vande Matara is the essence and lifeline of Indian Freedom. But some subversive MPs and MLAs are disrespecting Vande Mataram. Those disobeying Vande Matarm are culprits and punishable.
5. Every Indian must respect and recite Vande Mataram. Who will deny Vande Mataram, they will be driven out from Bharat.
6. Always say: Vande Mataram. Jai Sri Ram. Bharat Mata ki Jai. Go Mata ki Jai.

Greetings of Sri Ram Navmi to all.
Ramraksha stotra: Not just a divine chant.
Barkha Mathur | Nagpur | TNN | Apr 19, 2013:: The nine days of ChaitraNavratri, from GudiPadwa till Ram Navami, are filled with chants of Ramrakshastotra. The same can be heard at temples, homes and in groups, as people come together for collective recitals.
Considered to be one of the most sacred chants, it has tremendous powers to protect a devout from evil, says Prafulla Nandangiri, secretary of Bhonsla Ved Shala in Mahal. “There are a total of 38 shlokas, of which some like the 35th one is ‘siddha’. Reciting it can provide mental strength to a person, by making him feel fearless,” he says. This is a siddha stotra for complete protection of body and when read 1,300 times, it can destroy all dangers that a person may be facing, says Nandangiri.
“Ramraksha is also considered to be good for a newborn child and the new mother, and is read out while tying the black thread around the neck of an infant,” he says, adding that there are different rhythms for reciting it.
“The stotra focuses on all parts of the body and invokes Lord Ram to protect them. So, it is recited for children and also for those afflicted with some disease,” explains Kapil Chandrayan, a student of astrology. For best results, it should be read in Sanskrit for the vibrations that emanate through chanting of these sacred mantras, suggests Chandrayan.
Recitals of Ramraksha stotra are considered good during Chaitra Navratri as at this time god is present with all his powers in the sanctum sanctorum of temples, says Prasad Joshi, who is studying scriptures. “I recite the Ramraksha stotra as it helps me to master incantation of different chants. It has been written with anushtup chan as its poetic meter, which is a four-part mantra with 32 letters in one stanza. During these nine days, reading and reciting these sacred mantras is very effective.” <Read details here.>
