After Sushma Swaraj advocated ‘Gita’ as national book, L. K. Advani finds political panacea in ‘Ramayana & Mahabharata’.
Mahabharata, Ramayana great source of knowledge on politics and morality, Advani says.
PTI | New Delhi | Dec 14, 2014:: After Union minister Sushma Swaraj favoured declaring Gita as “national scripture”, veteran BJP leader LK Advani on Sunday urged people to read Mahabharata and Ramayana saying the epics are a great source of knowledge on politics and morality.
Reminiscing his days during pre-independence era, the 87-year-old leader said his grandmother would ask him to read the ‘Mahabharata’ in parts and not entirely, as there is a myth that keeping the epic at home was jinxed.
“I believe no other epic than Mahabharata is a great source of pedagogy, great source of information on politics as well as moral teachings, unity and courage,” he said.
The former deputy prime minister was speaking at a cultural programme and award ceremony to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of noted journalist and chief of Urdu newspaper ‘Daily Pratap’, K Narendra.

Advani said as he had studied in a Christian missionary school he only knew how to speak Sindhi (his mother tongue) and English. He said he read Mahabharata, Ramayana and Bhagwat Gita in Sindhi and English, and only after independence he read them in Hindi.
He said overtime he feels more comfortable conversing and reading in Hindi.
Just last week, external affairs minister Swaraj had praised Bhagwad Gita saying it should be declared ‘Rashtriya Granth’, drawing flak from some parties.
The awards were given away to felicitate journalists, social workers and public relations officers.
Among those who received the ‘Media Ratna award’ for excellence in the field of journalism include PTI Editor Ajay Kaul, Delhi Doordarshan’s Girish Nishana, Gyanendra Pandey (Lok Sabha TV), Arvind Singh (Rajya Sabha TV), Sumit Awasthi (IBN-7), Dilbar Gothi (Navbharat Times), Prashant Mishra (Dainik Jagran), Shekhar Ghosh (Dainik Bhaskar).
Radio Jockeys Naved (Radio Mirchi) and Raunak (Red FM) were also feliciated for their popular radio programmes.
Those who recieved the ‘Jansampark Ratna’ award in the field of public relations, include Hemendra Singh (CISF), B C Khanduri (CRPF), Anuj Dayal (DMRC), Vivek Pandey (ITBP), Neeraj Sharma (Northern Railways), Mahesh Maurya (Delhi Govt), Nemodhar (DDA), Rajan Bhagat (Delhi Police), among others.
The ‘Samaj Seva Ratna’ award for outstanding contribution in social work, was given away to Mahant Surendranath Avdhut (Vishwa Hindu Mahasangh), Mangeram Garg (Dharmyatra Mahasangh), Deepak Aggarwal, Ramkrishna Lohiya, among others.
During the function, differently-abled children from Renu Vidya Mandir, Sonipat and Sunrise Kids centre also gave dance performances. Delhi BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri and Daily Pratap Editor Anil Narendra were also present during the award ceremony.

Sanskrit teaches you to become a good person: Kishwar Zubin Nasreen
Kishwar Zubin Nasreen is receiving honour plaque from UP CM.
TNN | Lucknow | Aug 6, 2014:: Kishwar Zubin Nasreen, the head of the department of Sanskrit at Allahabad University, on Tuesday became the first Muslim woman to receive the Uttar Pradesh Sanskrit Sansthan award for her immense contribution in the field of Sanskrit. The award, instituted in the memory of socialist leader Janeshwar Mishra, will be given annually to a Muslim woman scholar of the language.
Though Nasreen has been a professor of Sanskrit for 36 years, she has been closely associated with the language since 1963.
“Besides being a beautiful language, Sanskrit teaches you to become a good human being and also helps you learn a lot about Indian culture and moral values,” she said.
“My religion never came in my way. In fact, after I learnt Arabic, considered one of the most difficult languages, Sanskrit was a cake walk,” she said.
“The first thing I tell my students is that they should learn Sanskrit as a therapy. That gradually moulds the character of a student, making the person a good human being enriched with the right balance of moral values and patriotism,” she added.
Nasreen said besides parental support, her inspiration to learn the language were compilations of Kalidas, which strike a balance between ancient and contemporary messages.

If I were dictator, would have made Gita compulsory in Class I: SC judge
Gita: The Light of Spirit & The Spirit of Light in both ways.
Express News Service | Ahmedabad | August 3, 2014:: Supreme Court judge Justice Anil R Dave Saturday said that had he been a dictator, he would have made the Gita and the Mahabharata compulsory in Class I in schools.
Speaking as the chief guest at a conference on ‘contemporary issues and challenges of human rights in the era of globalisation’ at Gujarat University’s convention hall, Justice Dave said, “Had I been the dictator of India, I would have introduced Gita and Mahabharata in Class I. That is the way you learn how to live life. I am sorry if somebody says I am secular or I am not secular. But we have to get good things from everywhere.”
“Our old tradition such as guru-shishya parampara (teacher-student tradition) is lost; if it had been there, we would not have had all these problems in our country,” he said, referring to the problem of violence and terrorism.
“Now we see terrorism in countries. Most of the countries are democratic. If everybody in a democratic country is good, then they would naturally elect somebody who is very good. And that person will never think of damaging anybody else,” he said as he recited the famous Sanskrit saying: “Yatha raja tatha praja (The subject reflects the king).”
At the conference, organised by the Gujarat Law Society, Justice Dave recited several verses from the Gita and other ancient scriptures, and added that a balance needs to be struck while dealing with violence and issues of human rights.
“We would never violate any person’s right if we stick to our ancient scriptures,” Justice Dave said. Other speakers at the conference included justice (retired) C K Thakkar and Chief Justice of Bombay High Court Mohit Shah.
Judge calls for Gita to be taught in schools to teach children ‘how to live’

Darshan Desai | Daily Mail | New Delhi | August 2, 2014:: Justice A.R. Dave of the Supreme Court on Saturday sparked a controversy after asserting that he wished the Bhagwad Gita and the Mahabharata were taught from Class I onwards in India.
“Somebody who is very secular, [rather] so-called secular, will not agree. Had I been the dictator of India, I would have introduced the Gita and the Mahabharata in Class I. That is the way you learn how to live life,” Justice Dave said.
Addressing an international conference on ‘Contemporary Issues and Challenges of Human Rights in the Era of Globalisation’ organised by the Gujarat Law Society in Ahmedabad, Dave said Indians should return to ancient traditions.
“Our old tradition like guru-shishya parampara (teacher-student tradition) is lost. If it had been there, we would not have had all these problems [of violence and terrorism] in our country,” Dave said.
“Now we see terrorism in countries. By bringing [out] all the good things in every human, we can stop violence everywhere. And for that purpose, we have to revert to our own things [traditions and scriptures] again,” he added.
Meanwhile, Bombay High Court Chief Justice Mohit Shah, who was also one of the speakers, said that “development for all” should be the core value behind globalisation”.
Justice Mohit Shah said: “The concept of global village should not mean that everybody is just thinking about the world, but it should also be about expanding functions of development for all.
HOW TO MAKE A DHARMA RASHTRA: The importance of the teaching of Shrimadbhagavad Gita is immense as indicated by Sri A.R. Dave, an eminent justice of the Supreme Court of India. It adores the highest truth and his intention to spread the Dharma Sikshan in the basic level is most welcome. Gita imparts us the making of individual as well the Nation as a whole. It teaches us the duties upon us and how to render it flawlessly. And these direction is supreme as Gita is propounded the supreme soul Shri Krishna Himself.
There are two specific duty bound works as exhorted by Sri Bhagawan to establish a Dharma Rashtra. Nothing more than that. Think whenever we fall in the series of critical situation, His suggestion is only two to do. No. 1: Paritranay Sadhunam, means to rescue the righteous persons. The part of cultivation of Dharma, Shastra and the Dharmiks. It sustains the Brahmatejas and ‘Divinity already in Man’. and No. 2: Vinashay ca Duskrutam, means destroy all the evils from the root. Keep in mind, not only destroy, but destroy from the root of all evil forces against Dharma. It sustains the Khstratejas in oneself. To encourage and fight on the strength of Warrior Spirit.
If we do only these Two Works assigned by the Jagadguru (Krusnam Vande Jagadhurum!) Sri Bhagawan, the Dharma Rashtra, i.e. Hindu Rashtra will be automatically established very soon (within 2025).
The reasonable combination or the Synthesis of Brahmatejas and Khstratejas is the only way of emancipation. We must remember the last shloka of Srimad Bhagabadgita. It is “Yatra Yogesvarah Krsno Yatra Partho Dhanur-dharah | Tatra Shrir Vijayo Bhutir Dhruva Nitir Matir Mama ||” ~ means, Wherever there is Krsna, the master mentor of all mystic yogic knowledge, and wherever there is Arjuna, the great warrior and the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion.
Yes, my opinion of emancipation lies in the Establishment of Hindu Rashtra in Bharat within 2025. Plz do this Sadhana. Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram. ~ Upananda Brahmachari.

Mahabharat historian gets research reins
BASANT KUMAR MOHANTY | The Telegraph | New Delhi, July 2, 2014:: A retired history professor who has written articles arguing that stories from the Ramayana and the Mahabharat are truthful accounts of events that took place has been named chief of the ICHR, the government agency to promote historical research.
Yellapragada Sudershan Rao, whose interests include Vedic literature, Sanatana Dharma and Bharatiya Sanskriti, set the tone for his three-year tenure after taking charge on Saturday.
Under his leadership, the Indian Council of Historical Research, he told The Telegraph, should take up projects to rewrite ancient history to establish the “continuous Indian civilisation”, including the period of the two epics.
“The stories of the Ramayan and the Mahabharat cannot be termed a-historical just because there is not enough archaeological hard evidence. Excavations cannot be done in many places since people are living there and you cannot evict them,” Rao said from Warangal, Telangana.
Rao, who taught history at Warangal’s Kakatiya University, has written several articles seeking to establish that stories of the Puranas and particularly the Ramayan and theMahabharat are truthful accounts of historical events.
“A lot of historical material has come through cultural, anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic studies in the last 60 years about the continuous Indian civilisation. The findings can be compiled by researchers. I think the ICHR should support historians interested in doing work on these aspects,” he said.
Rao, a member of the ICHR council when the previous NDA government was in power at the Centre, said studies might be conducted to understand the social system and cultural values during the period of the two epics. He also said archaeological evidence suggesting early habitation in Ayodhya could be traced back to the 8th century BC.
Sri Yellapragada Sudershan Rao – Historian and Indologist.
The latest excavations conducted after a court directive at the Ramjanmabhoomi site some years ago did reveal ruins of a basement of a big-columned monument on which the Babri mosque was built. Stone pillars and door-jambs with Hindu motifs used in the construction of the mosque were also found, as were images of Hindu deities below the ground at the disputed site.
Asked what the solution to the dispute should be, Rao said: “Historians need not give any solution. Historians present historical materials and the government has to take the decision.”
Rao said the ICHR had, over the last two decades, mainly focused its research projects on the modern and the colonial period. Before 1990, however, when R.S. Sharma and Irfan Habib were chairpersons, the council had undertaken several projects on early history.
“Even during R.S. Sharma’s tenure, they were using Marxist tools. Cultural aspects were not given attention. History should be comprehensive, not driven by any political thought,” Rao said.
By Marxist tools, Rao said, he meant studies entirely focused on the analysis of economic and material aspects, not culture, art or religion.
The new ICHR chief said a lot of archaeological material and literature were stored in archives in other countries and the agency should take the initiative to get at least copies of such works.Rao said he has not been associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh but loves the country and nationalist ideas. “I love the country and the culture. As a historian, I feel that history should tell people about their culture and civilisation.”
After taking over, Rao put out a message on the ICHR website where he conveyed “deep gratitude” to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and human resource development minister Smriti Irani for choosing him for the position. [Courtesy: The Telegraph Kolkata].

Honour of Sanskrit, Veda, Upanishad, Gita and Hindu Dharma in USA. The West is attracted with ancient Sanskrit Culture of Bharat, but the political maroons in India just discard it !!
With Hindu prayers California’s City Council Opened.
Just before the Newman City Council Hindu invocation, from left to right, are— Councilmember Nicholas Candea, Mayor Pro Tem Robert Martina, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, Mayor Ed Katen and Councilmember Roberta Davis.
spyghana.com | Newman City | 11 April, 2014:: Newman City Council in California (USA), which celebrated 125th Anniversary in 2013, had its first historic Hindu invocation on April eight (08-04-2014, Tuesday) evening, containing verses from world’s oldest existing scripture.
Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed delivered the opening prayer from ancient Sanskrit scriptures before the City Council. After Sanskrit delivery, he then read the English translation of the prayer. Sanskrit is considered a sacred language in Hinduism and root language of Indo-European languages.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, recited from Rig-Veda, the oldest scripture of the world still in common use, besides lines from Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), both ancient Hindu scriptures. He started and ended the prayer with “Om”, the mystical syllable containing the universe, which in Hinduism is used to introduce and conclude religious work.
Reciting from Brahadaranyakopanishad, Rajan Zed said, “Asato ma sad gamaya, Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya, Mrtyor mamrtam gamaya”, which he then translated as “Lead me from the unreal to the Real, Lead me from darkness to Light, and Lead me from death to Immortality.” Reciting from Bhagavad-Gita, he urged councilmembers to keep the welfare of others always in mind. Councilmembers, city employees and public were seen standing in prayer mode with their heads bowed down during this invocation.
Wearing saffron colored attire, a ruddraksh mala (rosary), and traditional sandalpaste tilak (religious mark) on the forehead, Zed sprinkled few drops of water from river Ganga of India, considered holy by Hindus, around the podium before the prayer. Zed presented a copy ofBhagavad-Gita to Mayor Ed Katen, who introduced and thanked Zed. “It is a historic moment of pride for the community when the prayers from ancient Sanskrit scriptures are being read in this great hall of democracy of this great city of Newman”, Zed stated before starting the invocation.
Rajan Zed is a global Hindu and interfaith leader, who besides taking up the cause of religion worldwide, has also raised huge voice against the apartheid faced by about 15-million Roma (Gypsies) in Europe. Bestowed with World Interfaith Leader Award; Zed is Senior Fellow and Religious Advisor to Foundation for Religious Diplomacy, Spiritual Advisor to National Association of Interchurch & Interfaith Families, etc.
Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal. There are about three million Hindus in USA.
Newman, whose tagline is “Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, Building for the Future”, is known for its annual Fall Festival. Robert Martina and Michael E. Holland are Mayor Pro Tem and City Manager respectively.

VHP hails BJP manifesto with a demand of clear cut and time bound road map for its fulfillment.
Hindu Existence Bureau| New Delhi | 9 April 2014:: On 6th April at Indore, senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia conveyed his sharp demands to all the political parties, especially BJP, to promise various concessions and schemes for Hindu community in their manifestos, apart from enactment of law to build the Ram temple in Ayodhya.
“We on behalf of the majority of Hindus have demanded that all the political parties should promise to provide fee-reimbursement to Rs 10 crore poor Hindu students in their manifestos,” said Togadia, the international working president of VHP.
Jobs should be provided to Hindu youths and security to over four lakh Kashmiri Hindus living in refugee camps, he said.
The parties should also promise to enact a law to facilitate construction of the Ram Temple in Ay0dhya, he said.
Cow slaughter and religious conversions should be banned, article 370 of Constitution should be removed and common civil code should be implemented, he said, listing other demands.
He said he has high hopes from BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in this regard.
When asked about Congress President Sonia Gandhi seeking support of the Shahi Imam of Jama Masjid, Togadia said “in the democracy everyone has the right to seek votes”.
He said Hindus should also vote for a party which cares about their rights.
In the very next day BJP released their manifesto on 7th April. Welcoming the inclusion of issues like Ram Janmabhoomi, Article 370 and Uniform Civil Code in the BJP’s election manifesto, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) immdeately demanded a time-bound roadmap from the party on these subjects.
In a statement relaesed on 7th April at Allahabad, VHP leader Pravin Togadia, however, said he was disappointed over “no mention of strictly tackling terrorism” in the manifesto.
The firebrand leader said he hopes “this matter will be tackled with immediate effect”.
“It is good that following a strong demand from the VHP and other Hindu organisations, Hindu-related issues like Ram Temple, Article 370, Uniform Civil Code, Kashmiri Pandits and protection of cows have found a place in the BJP’s election manifesto.
“We hope the momentum will be maintained by concrete steps for solving these issues with Hindu well-being as the primary goal” in the event of a BJP-led government coming to power at the Centre, he said.
“Hindus now expect that Article 370 is abrogated at the earliest unlike in the past when there have been discussions only.
“It is also expected that the Ram Janmabhoomi issue will be resolved by a Parliamentary legislation and not remain stuck in endless debates,” Togadia said.
“There must be a time-bound road map for resolving these issues. Concrete steps must be taken for rehabilitation of Kashmiri Pandits and to ensure that cow slaughter is checked effectively. It must be ensured that common civil code is applied to all walks of life and does not remain confined to providing equal rights for minority women,” Togadia said.
Now, Hindus & VHP expect that the mentions in the manifesto really take shape of actions with a time bound concrete road map with no delays. Hope that rather than only discussion on article 370, the said article is fast abrogated; rather than debating various ways, Ram Temple Legislation is passed in Indian Parliament; Kashmiri Pundits are rehabilitated with respect & with safety before December 2014 at the places from where they were chased away in Kashmir; Common Civil Code is established fully in all walks of life rather than only giving equal rights to minority women; the law completely banning cow & cow progeny butchering is passed; provisions of good package to all poor Hindu children & women of all castes as well as establishment of Veda Paathshaalas, Temples, Hindu monuments & people are given safety & all facilities rather than helping only Madrasas and Muslim minority communities.

Dejected to Semitic Religions. Returned to Hindu Fold. More than 5500 Christians and Muslims returned to ancestral Hindu Home in Uttar Pradesh.
Upananda Brahmachari | HE Media Bureau | Agra | Dec 26, 2013:: A Great News from the heart land of Uttar Pradesh. Thousands of converted Hindus have been opted again the faith of their forefathers and returned to Hinduism again.
On the eve of Christmas there was a hue and cry that the saffron brigade of RSS (Rashtriya Swamsevak Sangha), VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad), Bahrag Dal, Arya Samaj and Hindu Yuva Vahini would march forward to accept and assimilate their own brothers and sisters who shifted out of faith decades back in a spell of blunder and within an fraudulent ambit of allurement of the evangelical groups or the repressive Islamic elements empowered with inhumane forces.
On the very 25th Dec this year 2013, more than five thousand people returned to Hinduism and said goodbye to Christianity in a vast area of Uttar Pradesh in the localities of Agra, Aligarh, Kasganj, Bareilly, Badaun, Bijnor, Shahjahanpur, Mainpuri and Firojabad.
The highest re-conversion (Suddhi) in Aligarh, where 2000 Christian became Hindus, was held by Dhrama Jagran Samiti, a specific unit of VHP to make special efforts to sensitize the sense of Dharma in the marginal Hindus in any vulnerable condition, likely to be grabbed by the evangelic elements or other vicious elements like Zakir Naik .
Chanting of Vedic mantras, purification with Ganga Water, wearing of sacred threads and sacrifice to the fire God were the prime rituals that had helped the aspirants to get an warm entry to Hinduism once gain and for ever. Most of the people who took the refuge of Hinduism in these programmes, categorically told that they went to another faith by allurements and embraced Christianity . Seven Muslims in Shahjahanpur also adopted Hinduism.
Upon a complain, a details of conversion in Bijnor, the administration is trying to get exact numbers of such ‘returned to home’ (gar wapsi). From a source it is known that more than five hundred families (1600 people ) except Christianity became Hindu again. These people are mainly hailed from Malkan Rajput and belonging to Jat Muslim clan.
Mayor of Agra Town, Sri Indrajit Arya was also present in the program . In the ceremony held at Saraswati Vidya Mandir at Kasganj, 350 families ( about 1,000 people) and Firojabad 66 families (200 people) rejected Christianity and returned to their traditional faith Hinduism once again .
Prominent RSS , Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Hindu Vahini, Arya Samaj and Bajrang Dal leaders and the saints of Hindu organizations were present in these religious programmes. In Bareilly, six hundred people embraced Hinduism. Swami Yaswashi Arya of Arya Samaj sprinkled the holy Ganges water to the aspirants and initiated them with sacred thread (Yajna-Upaveetam).
With chanting of Veda mantra and offering sacrifice in fire the converted Hindus in dilemma, strongly returned back in Hinduism with full dignity and assurance of the Hindus society in every respect. In the programme of Draupadi Devi Inter College campus in Badaun, some 918 people of two hundred and twenty families were accepted Hinduism again by rejecting Christian hegemony and discrimination in such ‘homecoming’ program.
Various Hindu organisation have declared to extend their utmost support for providing the free education, health and rehabilitation for these brothers ans sisters came to their own fold of faith almost a decade after.
Erlier, some 325 Muslim members of 150 families of Eta, Farukhabad, Pilbhit, Kashganj, Mainpuri, Bareilly and Badaun were assembled in Eta Arsha Gurukul, where they were reconverted into Hindu Dharma again in presence of Jagadguru Swami Rajrajeswaram of Badrinath Dham. The Swami initiated all the aspirants in the Hindu Dhrama without discriminating any caste or creed.
Saikh Jabbar of Farukhabad and Mohammad Rauf of Pilvit told that they had a very low position in Muslim society as their forefathers went to Muslim community from a poor section of Hindu society.
Sabnam of Kapil (Farukhabad) and parvez Khan of Nagla Amar Singh (Eta) told that they had been feeling an unavoidable attachment with Hindu faith and people and even they protested cow slaughter and conspiracy of attacks on Hindus. As the Muslim Imams exploited them in various ways and under an utter desatisfactions they finally made their mind to accept their original faith.
In every place there was a wave of satisfaction and peace as all were in a realm of reunion and the love from the core of heart.
Though some Hindi media like Aaj Tak and Jagran highlighted this news of huge mass re-conversion in Hinduism, the English media (both print and electronic) skipped the same in a very strange manner.
Anyway, there is no known contra-action so far after the programmes of such large scale Paravartan held in Uttar Pradesh in a short time frame and neither there such any allegation of forceful activities from any side so far.

Important requirements for establishment of Hindu Rashtra ! : H. H. Dr. Athavale.
।। .जयतु .जयतु .हिंदुराष्ट्रम् ।।
HJS | Ashadh Shuklapaksha 2, Kaliyug Varsha 5115 | 10 July 2013 :: The second all-India Hindu Convention was recently held at Ramnathi, Goa. Let us see the necessary points pro-Hindus activists who participated in the Convention are required to imbibe.
‘Samashti (collective)’ destiny of Hindus is responsible for such miserable condition of Hindus and spiritual practice (sadhana) is the only solution to change the same !
Deeds of previous and present birth decide destiny and fate of every person. Establishment of Hindu Rashtra is not associated with destiny of one person but it is associated with destiny of all Hindus from Hindustan so also Hindus living abroad. The present miserable condition of Hindus is due to ‘Raja’ and ‘Tama’ pre-dominant Hindu rulers, leaders and people and their selfish, narrow-minded and demonic nature which is the root cause of such wretched condition.
Destiny of Hindus is dependent on their deeds. There is only one way for changing such destiny. Hindus need to discard their selfish and narrow-mindedness and instead of thinking only about self and family, they need to think about welfare of all Hindus. For this, rulers, leaders and people need to become ‘sattvik’ which can happen only by Hindus getting ‘Dharma-shikshan’, their abiding by Dharma and undertaking spiritual practice. It will change their destiny and establishment of Hindu Rashtra will be achieved easily. This is the path of action (Karma-marg).
If spiritual practice can entail God realization; it will surely help in achieving establishment of Hindu Rashtra !
In Hindu Dharma, 3 main paths of God Realization have been advocated which are – ‘Karma-Yoga’, ‘Bhakti –Yoga (Path of Devotion)’ and ‘Dnyan Yoga (Path of Knowledge)’. If these paths can be followed for attaining God; these paths can certainly help in establishment of Hindu Rashtra !
While doing any deed as per ‘Karma-Yoga’, it should be remembered that ‘Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam (Srimat Bhagavat Geeta- Chapter 2- Verse-50) which means every good deed should be done with skill, in perfect manner as it is ‘Yoga’.
Bhakti-Yoga means surrendering to Deities. Shiva is the Deity of Bharat. As per the present times, Bhagavan Srikrushna is the Deity to be worshiped for establishment of Dharma / righteousness, protection of virtuous and destruction of evil; therefore, worshipping Bhagavan Shiva and Srikrushna, chanting their names and praying everyday for establishment of Hindu Rashtra is ‘Bhakti-Yoga’. With the grace of Bhagavan Shiva, our Hindu Convention was held at Ramnathi i.e. a Shiva Temple.
C] Dnyan – Yoga
Study Srimat Bhagavat Geeta, Saints’ literature, Sanatan’s Holy books and follow the principles explained in them. With the study of spirituality, your perspective towards life will change, you will be able to clarify doubts of others, guide them and acquire spiritual strength.
Points to be remembered by people who are working for ‘Hinduttva’
Pro-Hindu activists have yearning to establish Hindu Rashtra. They are leaders and representatives of people. Bhagavan Srikrushna has said in Geeta
यद्यदाचरति श्रेष्ठः तत्तदेवेतरो जनः । स यत्प्रमाणं कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते ॥ -Srimat Bhagavat Geeta, Chapter 3, verse 21
Meaning : Behaviour of leaders, revered persons and Saints is followed by other people; whatever is said by them, is taken by people as the yardstick and people behave accordingly.
Pro-Hindu activists should remember points given below while following the guidance given during all-India Hindu Convention.
1] Study ‘Dharma-grantha’/ Holy Scriptures, Bhagavat Geeta and Sanatan’s Holy books.
2] Chant the names of Bhagavan Srikrushna and Shiva, worship and pray for establishment of Hindu Rashtra.
3] Abide by Dharma. Your behavior should be such that it is kept by people as ideal.
4] Devote at least one hour every day for Rashtra and Dharma and if possible, give all time for this and complete your ‘samashti sadhana’.
5] Bhagawan Sriram and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj are our ideals. Study their life history and adopt those principles. Netaji Subhashchandra Bose used to say that ‘if 40 crores Hindus raise acclamation of ‘Har Har Mahadev’, the British would leave India in a day.’ Hindu Rashtra will be established when we follow this advice.
Brothers and sisters ! Let us all, who took part in all-India Hindu Convention i.e. leaders from various regions, journalists, thinkers, advocates and Saints, unite under the leadership of Bhagavan Srikrushna, let us merge with each other. Let us give up small identities of our organizations, Sects and nurture identity of Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Dharma i.e. nurture patriotism and respect for our Dharma; take oath for sacrificing our body, mind and wealth for establishment of Hindu Rashtra.
If you need any assistance or guidance, rest assured that Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti would always stand firmly behind you. Blessings of Bhagavan Srikrushna are always with us.
Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram.

Calcutta High Court ordered to stop all term loans to minorities until further order.
Discrimination is an instrument to appease one minority than others. Jain minority deprived off loans in West Bengal for not being a Muslim!
Upananda Brahmachari | HE News Bureau | Kolkata | 8 July 2013:: Hon’ble Calcutta High Court ordered West Bengal Government in West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (WBMFC) to be restrained from conferring any benefit on any person under the relevant scheme of ‘Term Loan Scheme for the minorities of West Bengal’ as notified July 16, 2010 pending disposal of the case of one Sanjib Kumar Jain vs WBMFC vide WP No. 10399(W) of 2012 .
In his landmark order on 3rd July 203, Justice Sanjib Banerjee asked the State respondents to file affidavit to clear their stand to exclude Jain communities from the state notification upon which the advertisement was published to give term loans to all six minority communities of West Bengal as Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Sikh, Parsee and Jain.
It is alleged in the writ petition filed in Calcutta High Court that the petitioner, Sanjib Kumar Jain’s prayer for sanction of term loan has been refused on the ground that he does not belong to Muslim community.
Sanjib, an unemployed youth from Lalgola, Murshidabad applied for a term loan of Rs 1 lac from West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation. On the merit of his application he was interviewed on 2nd February 2011 and instructed to arrange one person for loan security and the matching amount for drawing the loan.
Sanjib completed all the formalities but was being refused time and again by the authorities of WBMFC and finally he was got a clue that one Muslim citizen of Murshidabad got the loan of Rs.66,500/- depriving his claim in the same period.
Being aggrieved Sanjib filed a writ petition bearing WP No. 10399 (W) of 2012 highlighting his case of deprivation as he is a Jain but not a Muslim.
The allegation is rather serious inasmuch as none can be discriminated on the ground of religion ordinarily.
Actually, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists and Zoroastrians (Parsees) have been notified as minority communities under Section 2 (c) of the National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992. As per Census 2001, the percentage of minorities in the country is about 18.4% of the total population of the country, of which Muslims are 13.4%; Christians 2.3%; Sikhs 1.9%, Buddhists 0.8% and Parsees 0.007%. But, the 0.4% Jains were not included in the Section 2 (c) of the NCMA, 1992 under a certain conspiracy. When all the census from 1951 (post independence) were conducted under a segregation of Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains from Hindus, then why the minority status of the Jains are not conferred to them?
In 2007, Jains were included in the minority list of West Bengal through an important legislation. On 27th Sept, West Bengal government accorded minority status to the Jain community in response to their long-pending demand.
“So far Muslim, Buddhist, Parsee, Christian and Sikh communities were included among minorities, now the Jains have been included,” the then Minority Affairs minister Abdus Sattar said in the floor of WB Assembly.
In the website of West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation, it is clearly stated that, “The Govt. of West Bengal has also notified Jain Community as a Minority Community but as this community is not on the Central government List, it can avail benefits of only those schemes which are undertaken out of the fund granted by the State Government.”
In the present case of sanction a loan upto Rs 1 lac comes under state purview and the loan upto Rs. 5.00 lacs needs approval of NMDFC of Central Govt. As such, the West Bengal State authority can arrange such funds for term loans etc (upto one lac) for Jains, when WB Govt are allocating huge funds for Imam/Muazzin honorarium etc from state revenue, even in an impugned manner. So, the case of deprivation made upon Sanjib Kumar Jain is bad in law and a blatant violation of Rights to Equality. Moreover, Sanjib has been discriminated for being a Jain and not being a Muslim. This is very much dangerous to the entity of the secular texture of Indian Constitution.
As per source, the West Bengal are now trying to suppress various documents and orders for discarding the claim of the present petitioner and disown the status of Jains as minorities in West Bengal. This is alarming enough as none can be discriminated on the ground of religion ordinarily by appeasing others. The Muslim appeasement in West Bengal has no bound here and word ‘Minority’ has been equated with the word ‘Muslim’. Sanjib and other non-Muslim minorities are the victims of this serious situation pampered by one and only Mamata Banerjee (read Mamatz Banu Arjee), the CM, West Bengal.
Three pertinent questions come here for decision that 1. What is the criteria in India for being minority? When 13.4% Muslims (now touching 20%) in the country is considered as minority, why 0.7% Jains are not given minority Status? 2. While a Hon’ble Court in U.P. questioned the minority status of 17% Muslims in Uttar Pradesh, then why a huge number of Muslim like 35% Muslims in West Bengal are given Minority status? and 3. In India, under the “Multi Sectoral Development Programme” 99 MCD, 338 Towns and 1228 CD Blocks have been declared as “Minority Concentration districts” ranging the status of lowest 17.63% Muslims (Gulbarga, Aandhra Pradesh) to the highest 63.67% Muslims (Murshidabad, West Bengal). There are over 1200 Blocks/Towns/MCD where Hindus are synchronized as minority maintaining the above parameter. Then why minority Hindus are not given facilities under MsDP there?
Such a thinking of appeasement by politics is a curse to Indian unity in diversity. Politics in India is empowering such a group of fanatics who does believe more in Sharia than Indian Constitution. It may pave another partition of India.
Now, all the attentions are attracted to a point whether Sanjib Kumar Jain will get the justice [next hearing in Sept 2013 in the Court of Justice Sanjib Banerjee] under a vigilant judiciary of Hon’ble Calcutta High Court, as he (the petitioner here) has been deprived of his claim of term loan from West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation for his birth in Jain minority community, not in a Muslim minority community.
Justice triumphs really when it is truth.

Pakistan Bans Movie Showing Hindu-Muslim Love Affair. Why should we show our love with Pakistan and Muslims?
Raanjhanaa banned in Pakistan. Photo Courtesy: Eros.
Upananda Brahmachari | Hindu Existence News Bureau | 3 July 2013:: Sonam Kapoor, Dhanush’s Raanjhanaa has been banned in Pakistan. The Pakistan Film Censor Board has banned the exhibition of actor Dhanush and actress Sonam Kapoor starrer Raanjhanaa because of its alleged “controversial theme of love affairs between a Muslim girl and Hindu Boy”.
Chief Executive Officer of IMGC Global Entertainment Amjad Rasheed, the importer of Raanjhanaa in Pakistan told that he received a letter from CBFC (The Central Board of Film Censors in Pakistan) with directives to shelve the film’s release. “The letter from CBFC states that the film portrays an inapt image of a Muslim girl [played by Sonam Kapoor] falling in love with a Hindu man and having an affair with him”, as the statement reached to the press.
Earlier the Censor Board had also banned films like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘GI Joe’, ‘Agent Vinod’ for their controversial themes and “anti-Pakistan” sentiments.
Rasheed said that he received a letter from CBFC with directives to shelve the film’s release.
“The letter from CBFC states that the film portrays an inapt image of a Muslim girl (played by Sonam Kapoor) falling in love with a Hindu man and having an affair with him.”
The Bollywood film’s plot portrays Muslim girl Zoya (Sonam) falling in love with Kundan (Dhanush) and later Jasjeet Singh (Abhey Deol). The film starts with Hindu Brahmin pundit’s son Kundan falling for Zoya at first sight. He follows her to school, after school, in the market — almost everywhere. After getting slapped 16 times by Zoya, Kundan finally gets to know her name, but his hesitation that she will reject him because of his religion leads him to introduce himself as Rizwan. She agrees to meet him behind a temple, but the meeting does not turn out well as Zoya finds out that he’s Hindu.
As the story unfolds, Zoya also develops feelings for Kundan, however, her parents find out about it and send her off to Delhi in order to protect the family’s honour. Later in Delhi, Zoya falls in love with Jasjeet Singh, a student leader who also leads a political party.
Pakistani singer Shiraz Uppal has also lent his voice for the title track of the film, composed by music maestro AR Rahman.
While the persecution upon Hindus and specially upon Hindu Girls are very much high, then such ban upon a film describing the heart of Muslim girl longing for Hindu boy is showing the fundamental attitudes of the Pakistan Govt and its agencies attached in the cultural and public relation affairs. Even, a Filmy love between Hindu Boy and Muslim Girl is not allowed in Pakistan. On the other hand, the Pak administration and agencies are not at all sincere to stop abduction, conversion, forceful marriage, rape and other crimes against Hindu and other minority girls and women in Pakistan.
In India, the Bollywood film industry is now overwhelmed with the series of projected star Muslim Khan progenies only to take care and ??? the Hindu actresses in silver screen and in real life also. Every body knows the present story of SRK-Gouri, SAK-Kareena, Amir K-Kiran, Imran K-Avantika, Irrfan K-Sutapa, Fradeen K-Natasha, Zayed K- Malaika Parekh, Sohail K- Seema, Arbaz K-Malaika Arora and so on.
The Love Jihadists in Bollywood are very much active for their agenda to grab the industries and the star families. All of them are highly concentrated to their goal with a staunch activism of film making (with the help of ‘D’ Company) by rendering script of love story between Muslim boy and Hindu girls in film and finally entering a wedlock with a pretty Hindu girl of film, sports or other industrialist world.
But these love jihadists in Indian film industries never contemplate to tie up a relation with any Hindu boys for their sisters or daughters. Nor the victim Hindu girls and women think to arrange marriage for their brothers with Muslim girls.
The sense of liberal attitude in India starts from lending Hindu interest to the Muslim conspirators even in the entertainment world. The reverse is rarely present and we are succumbing a permissiveness at the cost of easy prey to absurd Hindu-Muslim unity through film making and getting blasted by the same jihadists in Mumbai time and again.
We have forgotten a Dilip Kumar who suppressed his Muslim name (Yusuf Khan) to rise in his film career once and all the Muslim actress like Nargis, Waheeda Rehman, Madhubala (Mumtaz Jahan Dehlavi), Mumtaz, Saira Banu, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi to fall in the personality and wild attraction of Ashok Kumar, Raj Kapoor, , Pradeep Kumar, Shammi Kapoor, Sunil Dutt, Dev Anand, Manoj Kumar, Dharmendra or Amitabh Bacchan in the row.
The difference between the past and present is not made suddenly. The Pan Islamic terminators entered into Bollywood industries to ran over the Hindu sentiments, if any and to take supreme control of it by spreading a single message of “Muslims are Mightier than Hindus and Hindu Girls and Women are the subject to the Muslims”, not the reverse. Subtle fundamentalists like Javed Akhtar, Sabana Azmi, Ameer Khan etc. are playing a very dangerous role to promote Islam and Islamic influence in very sphere of life including the film industries. These agents of Allah have the time to collect donations to raise funds for the flood victim of Pakistan. But, have you heard any thing that these maroons are doing something for the 50,000 victims of Kedarnath and Uttarkhand disaster in any manner? Why they should do anything for the Hindu infidels?
In this juncture of banning of the movie Raanjhanaa in Pakistan, we can do at least two things.
1. Hindus must ban all films starring by a Muslim Hero, story in film depicting love story between Muslim boy and Hindu Girl, rejecting products tagging advertisement by Muslim stars here and make awareness about the danger of Love Jihad before Hindu girls and women with top priority. and
2. Stop all relations and business with Pakistan.

Resolution to increase network of international Hindu Organisations in Bali Hindu Summit (13-17 June, 2013).
Bali World Hindu Summit 2013 at Indonesia | Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net | June 18, 2013:: Decision to increase network of international Hindu organisations through the World Hindu Summit was taken in the second world Hindu Summit held here. Dr. Medbhakta, the President of Executive Committee of World Hindu Summit (WHS), informed that the programs devised by WHS will be implemented through World Hindu Centres which will undertake study of Hindu Dharma. They said Centre will also undertake programs for development in different fields related to children, women empowerment, education, economy etc., stated Dr. Medbhakta.
There is a need to create awareness amongst Hindus. The scholarly Hindus will be assigned the task of studying ‘Vedas’ and their propagation, said Shri. Med Sadruna, the President of Organising Committee of WHS. He said that the outcome of holding WHS was more than expected. Representatives from 20 countries all over the world took part in this Summit; besides representatives of 33 regions of Indonesia.
H. H. Dr. Athavale’s message for the ‘World Hindu Summit’ being held at Bali Island in Indonesia.
Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net:: “I am delighted to know that the ‘World Hindu Summit’ is being held at Bali Island, which has been nurturing Hindu heritage in Indonesia for many years now. In fact, it is expected that such Summits be held in Bharat, which is an eminent self-originated Hindu Nation. It is really praiseworthy that though not in Bharat, the Summit is being held at Bali Island which is a ‘Hindu land’ and Hindu representatives from all over the world are participating. Whatever be extent of gratitude the entire Hindu society expresses over the event, it will not be enough.
The objective of the ‘World Hindu Summit’ to spread Spirituality all over the world and to put into practice associated actions is important. There is a great need to propagate Hindu Dharma, science underlying Hindu Dharma, Hindu philosophy and Hindu culture all over the world for the welfare of mankind. I pray at the Holy feet of Shrikrushna that may the ‘World Hindu Summit’ be able to fulfil this need !”
- H. H. Dr. Jayant Athavale, Source of Inspiration, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
Establishment of Hindu Rashtra paves way for ‘Vishwa Bandhutva’ : Pujya (Dr.) Charudatta Pingale.
Denpasar (Bali, Indonesia) | HJS News Net | June 17, 2013:: The establishment of Hindu Rashtra (Dharma Rajya) is not through revolution, but by ‘Evolution’. There is destruction in revolution, but in ‘Evolution’ there is no destruction, only upliftment. Citizens in Dharma Rajya are provided with Dharmashiksha (Education of Dharma), their vices, defects are removed and their Sattvikata is increased by imbibing divine qualities. This process leads to World Oneness (Vishwa Bandhutva). Only Saints and seekers, working for betterment of Nation and Dharma, can establish Hindu Rashtra on the basis of their Ideal behavior, divine qualities, culture and experience. These views were expressed by Pujya (Dr.) Charudatta Pingale, National Guide of HJS while addressing the ‘World Hindu Summit’. Pujya (Dr.) Pingale spoke on the topic of ‘Importance of Hindu Dharma, the need for Hindus to abide by Dharma and perform spiritual practice’.

Let’s All be Hindu Fundamentalists.
by Maria Wirth.
Religious fundamentalists are on the rise and that is bad for our societies. Most people will agree on this. Yet few examine who religious fundamentalists are. Obviously, such persons would want to stick to the fundamentals of their religion. They want to live a life that is advocated in their holy books and would please their God. Now, since religious fundamentalists pose a problem, does it mean that the fundamentals of religions are bad for our societies? Let’s look at the three biggest religions:
Concerning Christianity, fundamentalists believe that God has revealed himself in the Bible and sent his only begotten son to earth to save all mankind. They believe in the first commandment: ‘You shall have no other gods before me’. Therefore, all humanity has to believe in the God of the Bible and his only son, Jesus Christ. Those who do not do so, will end up in hell. “Go out into the world”, is a central tenet of the Christian faith and fundamentalists consider it as their duty to convert as many ‘heathens’ as possible to Christianity by whatever means.
Concerning Islam, fundamentalists believe that Islam is the only true religion and Allah the only true God who wants the whole world to submit to Him. Those who do not become Muslims will go to hell. It is a central tenet and keeps recurring in the Quran. Fundamentalists see it as their duty to make all of humanity accept Islam and often take literally commandments in the Quran like “Strike terror in the hearts of unbelievers.”
Concerning Hinduism, fundamentalists believe that Brahman (other names are allowed and in use) is the one true God. However, Brahman is not a personal God who saves those who believe in Him and damns all others. Rather, Brahman is the most subtle conscious essence that permeates everything and everyone, never mind, which religion he follows or whether he is an atheist. “Atman is Brahman” or “one’s own Self is God”, the Vedas proclaim.
Now, all religions claim that there is only one Highest, one ‘true God’ in English or one ‘Allah’ in Arabic or one ‘Brahman’ in Sanskrit. And of course there is only one Highest/ God – the almighty, all knowing presence that is responsible for the existence of the universe. How can it be otherwise? Hindus, however, often don’t understand that Christians as well as Muslims are really convinced that their one true God, respectively Allah, saves only the brothers and sisters of their own faith and sends all others as heathen or infidels into hell. This conviction is indeed difficult to understand for humans with a normal reasoning capacity. Yet if one grows up hearing repeatedly that only one’s own faith is true and other people are bad because they don’t accept this, it may actually make sense. It happened to me as a child – it made sense that only we Christians go to heaven, because we have been chosen by God…
So we have a situation in the world where Christianity and Islam, each one over a billion strong, rival with each other: “Our God alone is true! If you don’t believe it, you go to hell.” And the other group counters, “No. Our God alone is true! And if you don’t believe it you go to hell.”
One could laugh it off if it were not so serious. Fundamentalists stick to this belief – and unfortunately, the official clergy of both religions uphold it, as well. It is naturally a cause for great friction in the world.
Hinduism (or Sanatana Dharma, as it used to be called) does not take part in this one-upmanship. It is ancient. It was there long before Christianity or Islam appeared on the scene. In Hinduism, Brahman is not a male entity who watches over us from somewhere. It is inside everyone, conscious, living and loving. It will always give another chance until everyone realises his true being and merges in Brahman, which may take many lives. The Hindu scriptures proclaim, “Humanity is one family”. “Brahman permeates the smallest as well as the biggest.” “Thou art That.” “Brahman is not what your mind thinks but That by which the mind is capable to think.” “See God in everyone.” “Respect nature.”
And they lead us in prayer: “May we be protected together, may we be nourished together, may we work together with great vigour, may our study be enlightening, may no obstacle arise between us.” “Let noble thoughts come to us from all sides.” “May everyone be happy”, and so on.
Many Hindus, too, don’t know these fundamentals of their religion and believe it is all about rituals, worshipping their favourite aspect of God to get their wishes fulfilled and celebrating festivals. They don’t realise that Hinduism is the only religion that is all inclusive. It does not set one group of people against all the others. It is also not opposed to science and does not only allow using one’s intelligence but encourages to do so.
Maybe that is the reason why in the west, Hinduism is sometimes even missing when the world religions are listed, as for westerners, a religion is apparently not a religion if it is not based on unverifiable dogmas, especially the one that sets it apart from other religions and which is so harmful for a harmonious living together of all humanity. Is it not about time for us in the 21th century to scrap such unverifiable, harmful fundamentals that set up one group of people against another group?
The best option is to follow the Hindu fundamentals. So let’s be Hindu fundamentalists who see God in everyone, also in animals and in nature. Our world would benefit.

10 reasons to join this Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan at Goa.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
Shree Ramnath Ashram, Ramnathi, Ponda, Goa | 5th June 2013:: Just few hours back, I have reached here at the venue of 2nd Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan at Ramnathi, Ponda with my friends of Bengal (Acharya Yogesh Shastri- Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Bengal, Shri Rajen Das and Satadal Goswami of Nikhil Banga Nagarik Sangha) and three others from Jharkhand (Sri Sanjoy Singh, Ashok Kumar and Promod Rai, all diligent Hindu Activists) to join this august Hindu Convention as scheduled from 6th June to 10th June. Though the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) is the main organizer of this Convention under the spiritual guidance of Sanatan Sanastha (SS), other like minded organisations are wholeheartedly supporting these convention to make a great success.
At least 100 delegates have already reached the venue with all enthusiasm, 100 of members and devotees of Sanatana Sansthan and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti are working hard to give the final touch in all arrangements to facilitate the attending delegates and also chanced to meet with Sri Promod Mutalik of Shri Ram Sene, Sri Aswini Kumar Chringoo of Panun Kashmir, Sri Mahesh Yogi of Arya Samaj, Farukhabad (U.P.), Sri Manish Manjul, Samarth Trust, Delhi. Sri Krishnadeva Arya, Haryana Arya Yuvak Sangathan and all my relatives of SS and HJS.
Last year I came here in the same venue. This year I have come here again. But why? Let me clarify the reasons in ten points.
1. HJS and SS are the only organisations who are organised this type of Hindu Rashtra Conclave with its like minded organisations and individuals for the establishment of Hindu Rashra in Bharat without any hidden agenda. Vedic Sanatan Hindu Dharma is the basis of this Dharma Rashtra.
2. Being a little bit fanatic to see a Hindu Rashtra in my life time, I have no other option but to join this Hindu Rashtra Movement of HJS, as it is clearly saying about an establishment of Hindu Rashtra within 2025 and I will be there by Almighty’s grace.
3. In my 30 years organisational experiences in various Hindu organisations, I have perceived an unique simulation of subtle spirituality in a work-frame of scientific deliverance in the strategy of this Hindu Rashtra phase by phase.
4. I feel a very high urge within the devotees and members of HJS & SS to get a Hindu Rashtra within 2025 and all of them are active to infuse this ideals and methods of Hindu Rashtra to others as per their capability with an utmost sincerity.
5. Within a short period (just withing 10 years of it establishment), the HJS and SS at least openly demanding the Hindu Rashtra in open convention with a worldwide propaganda.
6. This Hindu Adhiveshan (Conclave) is not only a theoretical session, but a practical platform with all possibilities and perspective of Hindu Rashtra. And this Adhiveshan is completely free from any version of fraud secularism in Bharat so far.
7. This Hindu Adhiveshan is searching new talents and spirits to come together in a strong warfare of Hindu Rashtra.
8. This Hindu Adhiveshan is dedicated for both the Constitutional and Agitational process for the establishment of Hindu Rashtra.
9. I have marked that this Hindu Adhiveshan have rejected all political and vest-interest gimmick and very much strict upon its Dharmik agenda to change the Adharmik (immoral and corrupted) system in Bharat.
10. This Hindu Adhiveshan is considering Bharat as Hindu Rashtra being an only solution of manifold problems of World Hindus, whether in Bharat or outside Bharat. I consider it as a Real Hindu Freedom Movement in Bharat and the ultimate struggle for Hindu Existence in this globe.
Jayatu Jayatu Hindu Rashtram!
