‘Ghar wapsi’ held in Bengal, 150 Christian tribals converted to Hinduism

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.

Ghar Wapsi (Reconversion) trail; the view of Swami Vivekananda for Conversion and his staunch words to the Christian Missionaries.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
Swami Vivekananda not only initiated her most devout disciple Nivedita in Vedanta doctrine, he converted Margaret from Christianity to Hinduism also.
The reconversion issue in India made a hue and cry not only in this land, but it ranted the major portions of the world as engineered by the media. The dangerous secular force and the communal Christian missionaries are lauded over the issue for their gain.
On the contrary, the rightist Hindu organisations go forward to their aim to crush down the culpable Semitic conspiracy to convert Hindu populace with the help of huge foreign money.
Dr Pravin Togadia, the International President of VHP clearly opines that if conversion is not stopped by making sufficient strong law, the reconversion process will also continue with greater endeavour.
But, when RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat or Dr Togadia say something favorably or reconversion, instantly those are branded as communal by the secular. Even sometimes BJP is also expresses its view unfavorably against reconversion under the halt of situation. But, ‘suddhi’ (purification) or ‘gharwapsi’ (home coming), in a word- reconversion, was not introduced by any of RSS, VHP or BJP.
First Gharwapi (home coming) was done by Jagadguru Ramanandacharya before 700 years and 25,000 Muslims were reconverted to Hindu at Ayodhya when there was no RSS and VHP. Another mass home coming of 3 lakh Hindus was done by Swami Shraddhanand in 1920 under Arya Samaj’s Suddhi movement for that he was killed by a Muslim goon came from Lahore. History said that Vidyaranya Swami reconverted Harihar and Bukku who made a mighty Vijaynagar Empire. Sri Chaitanyadev also reconverted many Muslims in his Bhakti movement including Rupa, Sanatana and Haridas Goswami.
After Swami Dayananda Saraswati (1824 – 1883), the founder of Arya Samaj, Swami Vivekananda (1863 – 1902) also unequivocally granted the vision of reconversion as an important measure to protect the numerical strength of Hindus including the emancipation for Human kind in the right path of Sanatana Vedic Hindu Dharma.
Sister Nivedita was the most eminent disciple converted by Swami Vivekananda himself and Swamiji had a great concern about the loosing numbers of Hindus under Islamic brutality and Christian conversion conspiracy.
In the very ‘Rules and Regulations of the Ramakrishna Math Belur, 1898’, Swami Vivekanada wrote, “When the Muslims first came to India, there were according their historical records, sixty crores of Hindus in India. This calculation suffers rather form underestimation than exaggeration; or lots o perished solely through the persecution of Muslims. Therefore, it is obvious that the number o Hindus was even more than sixty crores – on no account less than that. But today the same Hindus have dwindled into 20 crores. Over and above that, with the ascendancy o the Christian powers, about two crores of people have become Christians and more that one lakh of people are becoming Christians every year. It is specially or the preservation o Hindu race and religion that Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna, the embodiment of mercy, has incarnated himself.” (Para 1 of the Part – PLAN OF WORK FOR INDIA in the Belur Math or RK Mission Constitution written by Swami Vivekananda himself.)
Not only that much, Swamiji directly instructed to convert the followers of other religions into Hindu Dharma by saying ”Great efforts should be made to bring even Muslims and Christians into the Hindu fold.” (Para 20 ibid).
As a matter of fact Swami Vivekananda challenged the menaces of crooked Christian missionaries in their land in the very World Religion Conference in Chicago in 1893.
In his lecture delivered on 20 September 1893 on the topic ‘Religion Not the Crying Need of India’, Swamiji cleared his vision towards Christian Missionaries without any ambiguity.
“Christianity must always be ready for good criticism, and I think that you will hardly mind if I make a little criticism. Christian brethren of America, you are so fond of sending out missionaries to save the souls of heathens. I ask you: what have you done and are doing to save their bodies from starvation? In India, there are 300 million men and women living on an average of a little more than 50 cents a month. I have seen them living for years upon wild flowers. During the terrible famines, thousands died from hunger but the missionaries did nothing. They come and offer life but only on condition that the Hindus become Christians, abandoning the faith of their fathers and forefathers. Is it right? There are hundreds of asylums, but if the Muslims or the Hindus go there, they are kicked out. There are thousands of asylums erected by Hindus where anybody is received. There are hundreds of churches that have been erected with the assistance of the Hindus, but no Hindu temples for which a Christian has given a penny.
Brethren of America, you erect churches all through India, but the crying evil in the East is not religion. They have religion enough, but it is bread that the suffering millions of burning India cry out for with parched throats. What they want is bread, but they are given a stone. It is an insult to a starving people to offer them religion; it is an insult to a starving man to teach him metaphysics. Therefore, if you wish to illustrate the meaning of “brotherhood,” treat the Hindus more kindly, even though they are Hindus and are faithful to their religion. Send missionaries to them to teach them how better to earn a piece of bread and not to teach them metaphysical nonsense.
[At this point, Swami Vivekananda said that he was not feeling too well that day and so wished to be excused. But, we read in the newspaper report, “there were thunders of applause and cries of ‘Go on,’” so Vivekananda continued:]
The earlier speaker said something about the miserable and ignorant priests in China. The same may be said of the priests in India. I am one of those monks who have been described as beggarly. That is the pride of my life. I am proud in that sense to be Christ-like. I eat what I have today and think not of tomorrow. “Behold the lilies of the field; they toil not, neither do they spin.” The Hindu carries that out literally. Many gentlemen present in Chicago sitting on this platform can testify that for the last twelve years I never knew whence my next meal would come. I am proud to be a beggar for the sake of the Lord. The idea in the East is that to preach or teach anything for the sake of money is low and vulgar, but to teach the name of the Lord for pay is such degradation as would cause the priest to lose caste and be spat upon.
Writer can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is one suggestion in the earlier speaker’s paper that is true: If the priests of China and India were organized, there is an enormous amount of potential energy that could be used for regeneration of society and humanity. I endeavored to organize it in India but failed for lack of money. It may be I shall get the help I want in America.
I came here to seek help for my impoverished people and I fully realized how difficult it was to get help for heathens from Christians in a Christian land. I have heard so much of this land of freedom, of liberty and freedom of thought, that I am not discouraged. I thank you, ladies and gentlemen.” (Swamiji’s Addresses at the Parliament of Religion, Chicago as produced in the site of Belur Math).
But, the politicos and media in India much rely upon the dictum of Vatican and the Al Rabita than the ideology and instructions of Swami Vivekananda.
It is fortunate that the Hindu organisations, the Hindu Saints and most of the common people are believing in the message off Swami Vivekananda who told us categorically, “For whoever goes out of the Hindu Religion, is not only lost to us, but also we have in him one more enemy.”
Hence, every devout Hindu find ‘Reconversion’ as an essential duty to do. But, “Conversion” as a legitimate right to live. Yes, Swamiji told us, Expansion is life and contraction is death. We do want to live with our might and right.

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.

Countdown begins in Nepal for a consensual Hindu Rashtra within 22 January 2015.
Hindu Rashtra demand in Nepal provinces even higher than ever. Hindu Rashtra demand turning violent in Kathmandu as Cops and RPP-N cadres clash. Nepal may be declared as a Hindu State again in next 72 hours.
Hindu Saints took Kathmandu roads in a demand of Nepal as Sanatan Hindu Rashtra on 19-01-2015.
Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Kathmandu | 19 January 2015:: Tension gripped New Baneshwor on Sunday after riot police clashed with leaders and cadres of Rastriya Prajatantra Party-Nepal after they allegedly tried to enter the prohibited zone in front of the Constituent Assembly building today.
Hundreds of demonstrators led by RPN-Nepal had rallied to New Baneshwor from Babar Mahal to gherao the CA building demanding restoration of Hindu State in Nepal and promulgation of the constitution on the stipulated deadline of January 22, 2015.
Police had used ‘moderate’ force to disperse demonstrators chanting pro-Hindu slogans and holding placards and banners as they tried to advance to the prohibited zone.
District Administration Office, Kathmandu, has declared the areas from the western gate of the CA building up to New Baneshwar Chowk a prohibited area for mass assembly, rally and demonstration in view of the fact that it is a sensitive area in terms of security.
Around a dozen demonstrators received minor to moderate injury when police baton-charged them. Following the clash, they had staged a sit-in on the road for an hour and turned it into a mass meeting. Addressing the meeting, RPP-N Chairman Kamal Thapa warned that his party would capture the Constituent Assembly if the major political forces failed to deliver the constitution on January 22. “We will also organise nationwide protests and mass assemblies the day after January 22 in case the major parties fail to promulgate the constitution. We will not stop, we will break the police cordon and enter the CA building by that time,” he said.
RPP-N Chairman Kamal Thapa accused ‘the so-call democratic parties’ of betraying the people in the name of the constitution. “The parties have tried to sow the seeds of religious conflict through secularism and ethnic provinces,” he alleged.
Police have stepped up security in the capital with major focus on the CA building and other vital installations to prevent any untoward incident in the run-up to the January 22 deadline for the constitution.
RPP-N, the fourth largest party in the constituent assembly, wants Nepal to become a Hindu state under the new constitution.
Alternatively it wants a referendum to be held on the 2008 decision to abolish a 240-year-old monarchy and usher in a secular republic.
Deputy superintendent of police, Posh Raj Pokharel, said protesters tried to enter a restricted area near the assembly.
“We cannot allow them into the restricted area,” Pokharel told to the press when questioning him about the situation.
Hindu Rashtra Dharma Maha Sammelam in Chitwan on 16-01-2015. A Grand Success. Public is favouring Hindu Rashtra in Nepal. But who are the foreign prompted culprits to dismantle it?
Nepal’s last king Gyanendra Shah stepped down in June 2008 when parliament voted to abolish the monarchy, after Maoist rebels ended their insurgency and joined politics.
An estimated 16,000 people died in the “people’s war” fought by the Maoists against the state before the rebels signed a peace deal, paving the way for constituent assembly polls two years later.
Since then the Himalayan nation has endured prolonged political limbo, with leaders failing to agree on the charter.
Pressure has been building before Thursday’s deadline to publish the document, with various groups holding protests and staging strikes.
During last three months Nepal has seen unprecedented Hindu revival for the demand of Hindu Rashtra through hundreds of various demonstrations, agitations, rallies, campaigns, religious programmes etc. in its length and breadth. Millions of Hindu people of Nepal participated in these pro Hindu Rashtra programmes. While two major political parties viz. Nepali Congress and RPP-N are advocating for Hindu State in Nepal, some other forums are demanding Hindu State with the restoration of Hindu Kingdom in Nepal as earlier. Majority people in Nepal are expecting Hindu State in Nepal as Hindu Republic with giving a special status to the Throne of Shah dynasty of Nepal along with the maintenance of the Constitution as existed in 1990 AD (i.e. 2047 BS).
Many of Hindu saints and leaders from neighbouring India has visited Nepal during this time for promoting the ongoing Hindu Rashtra movements in Nepal for a Hindu state there to reclaim it at once as the only Hindu State for over 1 billion Hindu people in this globe.
As per latest report, serial consensus is building up in major political parties for a Hindu State in Nepal and restoration of Constitution of 1990 AD (2047 BS). Mainly, Maoists are opposing the Hindu State in Nepal.
Meeting of the Constituent Assembly (CA) of Nepal put off for 5 pm today has not begun yet as top leaders of major political parties are engaged in inter-party talks to resolve crisis.
Top leaders of four major forces – Nepali Congress (NC), CPN-UML, UCPN-Maoist and United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF) – are holding a meeting in presence of CA Chair Subas Chandra Nembang to forge consensus in disputed issues of the constitution.
Lawmakers representing various parties have gathered at the CA meeting hall, New Baneshwor, waiting for the meeting to commence.
Nepal may be declared as a Hindu State again in next 72 hours.
Devout Hindus in Nepal are advised to enter into ‘Laghurudra Japa – Om Namah Shivay’ and take the challenge of Maoists without any fear. Then Nepal will be declared again as a Hindu State in next 72 hours by the blessings of Lord Pashupatinath Ji. ~ Upananda Brahmachari.

At Least 58 People Embrace Hinduism in Kerala’s Kottayam District
PTI | Kottayam (Kerala) | 26 Dec 2014:: At least 58 persons, most of them belonging to Christian families, embraced Hinduism at two temples in the district as part of the ‘Ghar Vapsi’ (home coming) programme under the initiative of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Christmas day.
VHP District President Balachandran Pillai said 42 members belonging to 20 families embraced Hinduism at the Puthiyakavu Devi temple in Ponkunnam while at another function at Sri Krishna Swamy temple in Thirunakara, 16 were converted to Hinduism.
One of the person who converted is said to be a Muslim.
Mr Pillai said those who had converted had done it on their own from Vaikom, Kumarakkam and Kanjirapally.
VHP state president justice M Ramachandran, a former Kerala High Court Judge, told PTI that “neither the central committee nor the state committee had taken any decision on conversions. But we are not against anyone who comes voluntarily.”
The matter would be discussed by VHP’s central committee, which is meeting in Hyderabad from December 28 to 30, said Justice Ramachandran, who will also be participating.
In an effort at clearing the confusion, VHP state General Secretary V Mohan, later issued a statement clarifying that “noone was being forcibly converted. Those who want to convert to Hinduism on their own will, are only being helped to do so”.
On Wednesday, 11 persons had embraced Hinduism near Kayamkulam in Alappuzha district in another case of conversion since in the last week.
A group of 30 people belonging to eight families of Scheduled Caste Christians had also re-converted in the district on December 21.
Chief Minister Oommen Chandy had said on Wednesday that the situation did not warrant a government intervention.
“There is no compulsory conversion or reconversion in the state and it will not take place either. If somebody voluntarily takes any decision, what can the government do”.
More Religious Conversions in Kerala, Government Maintains Distance
Sneha Mary Koshy | NDTV | Alappuzha (Kerala) | 26 Dec 2014:: Eleven persons from three more families converted to Hinduism today in Kerala’s Alappuzha district under the initiative of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or VHP. This is the second instance of conversion within a week in the district. On Sunday, 30 people from 11 families had undergone religious conversion.
The ceremony was held at a temple in Keyshavoor near Kayamkulam. “Some of these people’s ancestors had converted to other religion years ago,” said a local VHP leader. The converts also included three couples who had undergone inter-faith marriage, he added.
Saffron groups call these programmes “ghar-vapsi”, claiming the ancestors of such families were Hindus who had converted to other religions.
In the wake of a nationwide controversy over religious conversions over the last few weeks, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy today said no “forced conversions will work in Kerala” and that the state has always maintained a distance from this issue.
“The conversion was not compulsory,” Mr Chandy said. “If there is a need for government intervention, the government will intervene. But we don’t expect such a situation in Kerala”.
Related: 30 Christians Convert in Kerala. Local VHP Says, ‘We Helped’.
The state government had ordered an investigation into Sunday’s conversion. The preliminary investigation in the case has not found any evidence of “forceful conversion” to warrant a state intervention, sources said.
The Chief Minister’s comments came a day after Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu underscored the Centre’s position on the matter.
“The government does not have any religion. Only individuals have it,” Mr Naidu said. “And if the law is being violated by anyone, they must be booked under the law by state governments including Kerala, where the Congress still rules.”
The BJP is planning to bring in anti-conversion law across the country under which conversion by force or enticement will be punishable under law.
Home coming is not conversion: Dr Pravin Togadia.
Dheeraj Fartode | The Hitavada | Nagpur | 25 Nov 2014:: On the issue of ‘Ghar Wapsi’ (home coming), Dr Togadia said that VHP and RSS are only doing home coming of converted Hindus and does not support any conversion. First home coming was done by Jagadguru Ramanandacharya before 700 years and 25,000 Muslims were reconverted to Hindu at Ayodhya when there was no RSS and VHP. Another mass home coming of 3 lakh Hindus was done by Swami Shraddhanand in 1920 for that he was killed. Hindus were waiting for peaceful democratic way of conversion and nobody should object to home coming, he said.
Expressing deep concern over rise of Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) and its adverse impact on social and political fabric of India, International Working President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Dr Pravin Togadia on Thursday said that emergence of MIM would shrink the political space and will make Muslims politically unsafe.
Traditionally, Muslims votes en bloc for Congress or NCP, but these votes have now shifted to parties like MIM which actually helped the BJP in winning elections, Togadia claimed during an exclusive interview to The Hitavada. However, the fire-brand VHP leader claimed that corresponding decrease in representation of Muslims in Congress and NCP would actually affect political empowerment of Muslims in future. Any attempt by outfits like MIM to woo Scheduled Castes will not succeed, he predicted citing historic decision of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar who refused to embrace Islam.
On the issue of conversion row, the VHP leader said that Hindus are victim of religious conversion throughout the world and India has to pay a heavy price due to massive conversion of Hindu society in the past. “Situation of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Kashmir valley is direct result of conversion of Hindus. It is time for Hindus to unite and not to fall prey to conversion,” the VHP leader appealed.
Reacting strongly to ongoing debate over conversion, Dr Togadia reminded them to object it to forcible conversion started way back in 712 AD by Muhammad Bin Qasim and debunked the criticism as politically motivated and historically incorrect.
Citing Supreme Court’s 1977 ruling in Rev Stanislaus vs Madhya Pradesh, Dr Togadia said that right to profess, practice and propagate religion is a fundamental right. But, right to profess does not mean right to convert hence, conversion is an unconstitutional activity.

VHP claims it re-converted over 200 Christian tribals in Gujarat
Ghar-Vaapsi programme in Gujarat
PTI | Valsad (Gujarat) | December 21, 2014:: Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Saturday claimed that it re-converted over 200 tribal Christians to Hinduism by holding rituals at Aranai village in Valsad district of BJP-ruled Gujarat, claimed a local leader.
The right-wing outfit also said the re-conversion was “voluntary” and not by force.
“As part of the ongoing ‘Ghar-Vaapsi’ programme, VHP on Saturday re-converted 225 people from Christian community and took them back into Hindu religion,” said Valsad district VHP chief Natu Patel.
He said VHP organised a ‘Maha Yagnya’ (ritual of the sacred fire) for “purification” of the tribals before taking them back in Hindu-fold and also gave each of them a copy of Bhagwad Gita.
Another VHP worker, Ashok Sharma, said around 3,000 people had gathered at the ‘Ghar-Vaapsi’ programme in Valsad, which culminated today.
“VHP onSaturday greeted around 225 people back in their own religion in Valsad. We have not forced them, they came on their own wish,” Sharma said.
The incident came against the backdrop of a raging debate over such programmes being organised by Sangh Parivar groups in various parts of the country.
A controversy had erupted early this month when a right wing group had organised a ‘Ghar-wapasi’ drive wherein it reportedly converted about 100 people from a minority community in Agra in Uttar Pradesh.
The incident had created a ruckus in the Rajya Sabha with the opposition demanding a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
A similar incident was also reported from BJP-ruled Chhattisgarh where a party MP had claimed 39 tribal Christians were re-converted to Hinduism in Naxal-hit Bastar district in October this year.
In its response to the opposition over the conversion issue, BJP has demanded bringing of anti-conversion law. [eIndiaToday].
RSS chief dares political rivals, says ‘ghar wapsi’ will continue

Hindustan Times | Kolkata | December 20, 2014:: The campaign to help people of other faiths reconvert to Hinduism will continue, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Saturday, daring political rivals to bring in a law to ban religious conversions if they wanted to stop ‘Ghar Wapsi’.
“Those who have lost their way were separated from us. If they want to return home, we will bring them back home,” Bhagwat told a first of its kind gathering of Hindu groups and their supporters in central Kolkata.
“It is like a thief who steals our valuables. The chief is caught and we will get our valuables back. They are ours.”
Religious conversions have long been a lightning rod for identity politics in India, whose history is scarred with episodes of blood-letting of citizens divided on faith and ethnicity. Such religion-driven politics took a backseat in the last decade of economic boom, but signs of a more assertive Hindu right have surfaced since the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, adding to a climate of fear.
Earlier this month, Hindu groups claimed to have reconverted dozens of Muslims in Agra, Uttar Pradesh and announced plans for more ‘Ghar Wapsi’. Islamic leaders and clerics have bristled at this, vowing to counter the Hindu proselytisation drive.
Bhagwat dared those opposed to the ‘Ghar Wapsi’ campaign to bring in a federal law to stop it, echoing comments made by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah in Kochi earlier in the day.
“(The) BJP is against (forcible) conversions and that is why we want to bring a law. (The) so-called secular parties should support (the) BJP’s move,” Shah told reporters, rejecting allegations made by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi that the saffron party was trying to divide the country on communal lines.
Most political parties, including the Congress, are against any law restricting religious conversions, saying such a move, although ostensibly intended to protect people from being forced to change their beliefs, would be in conflict with constitutional guarantees on religious freedom.
Calling on all Hindus to “stand upright”, Bhagwat said if Hindus rise the world would benefit and it would give “sleepless nights to opportunists and wrong doers”.
“We are not infiltrators, we will not run. This is our land. While we were sleeping, something has gone lost. We will bring it back,” he said.
“In our motherland it is necessary that Hindus rise. So that anyone whoever they worship is secure and prosperous. Only the Hindus can do it.”
He took a dig at Pakistan, saying the people of that country had been unhappy ever since separating from India.
“Pakistan was part of our Bharat Bhumi. Something happened in (19)47 and they got separated. But they were a part of Bharat Bhumi. You tell me, are the people there happy now?”
BJP favours law banning conversion: Amit Shah

Shaju Philip | Indian Express | Thiruvananthapuram | December 20, 2014:: With the Opposition mounting a sharp attack on the Central government over the issue of religious conversion, BJP president Amit Shah said Saturday his party was opposed to “forcible conversion” and favoured a law against it.
Speaking to the media in Kochi, Shah said: “BJP is the only political party in the country that opposes forcible conversion… forcible conversion will be opposed at any cost,’’ he said.
Targeting the Opposition, he said the “so-called secular parties” have not made their stand clear on the issue. “If these parties are sincere in their approach towards secularism, they have to come forward and make clear their stand on forcible conversion.”
He said the BJP was ready for a debate on the issue with other political parties. To a query whether the BJP would be ready to discuss the issue with minority outfits, he said the BJP will discuss it with other organisations only after political parties come to a consensus on the issue.
Shah refused to comment on the ‘ghar wapsi (reconversion)’ campaign of RSS affiliates. “Since the issue is before the court, I don’t want to comment,’’ he said.
He said there was no basis in the allegation of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi that the BJP was dividing the country on communal lines.
On the issue of bringing back black money to the country, Shah said only the Modi government had taken strong measures. Within six months, the BJP government had taken several steps which the UPA did not during its decade-long rule, he said.
He said a special investigation team had been formed. Bilateral treaties, he said, had slowed down the pace of action but the Prime Minister had intervened to clear hurdles.
On his party’s strategy for Kerala, Shah said the NDA had to be strengthened in the state and the BJP wanted to bring in its fold 40 lakh people. He said the BJP would try to put up a strong show in the next elections to local bodies. The state unit of the party, he said, would work out plans in this regard.
Elections to local bodies in Kerala are due in 2015, the assembly in 2016.

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.

Change in India is not only positive for Nepal but for all Hindus around Globe- An Interview With Upananda Brahmachari.
Yogendra Pratap Shahi | Everest Herald | Kathmandu | 7 Dec 2014:: [This is an interview taken by Yogendra Paratap Shahi, Senior Journalist in Everest Herald Online on 20 Nov 2014, during the Nepal visit of Upananda Brahmachari, the Editor, Hindu Existence with a Mission of Bharat-Nepal Hindu Rashtra Abhiyan during 16-26 Nov 2014. ]
Is this your first Nepal visit ?
Yes, It is my first visit to land of Lord Pashupati Nath Ji.
What about you used to hear about Nepal and what you found after visiting here ?
I found similarities between what I heard and the reality. Nepal was Hindu Kingdom from ancient ages, but due to some corrupt and selfish leaders, Nepal was forcefully declared as a Secular State. I found dissatisfaction and hurt in the mind of peoples regarding secularism
Are you here really for Darshan of Pashupatinath Ji or for other objectives too ?
We know that Prithivi Narayan shah is father of modern Nepal and the Prithivi Narayan Shah Memorial Foundation is doing many programs and activities for reestablishment of Hindu Kingdom. I was invited as a speaker on behalf of *All India Hindu Shava and Bharat Nepal Hindu Rastra Abhiyan* and I got this special privilege for darshan of Lord Pashupatinath.
You still believe, Nepal can again be Hindu Rastra ?
In Nepal I got opportunity to participate in many programs and interact with many people. During the interactions with them I found there are many Hindu unions and organizations but they are not united and are scattered due to many reasons. Besides having such big Hindu Population, lack of Unity and co-operations among Hindu Organizations is very embarrassing fact and bad luck. It seems everyone is struggling in their own way but instead of success it leads to in-cooperation, deviation and misleading. This is not right way to fight for Hindu Kingdom, due to this problem Hindu movement may not progress speedily and more effectively as it should be. Demographically most of Nepalese population is Hindus also. If we all want Nepal to be re-established as Hindu Kingdom, this co-operation and Unity among Hindu Organization is essential. If united then no other force can stop Nepalese people from re-establishing the Hindu Rastra and Hindu Kingdom as well.
Upananda Brahmachari with Yogendra Pratap Shahi in Temple House, Kathmandu.
Did you find any force that can maintain Nepal as Hindu Kingdom ?
It is sure and certain that, there is high demand for a strong personality who can co-operate and unite all. In my view there are one on one intellectual personalities here capable of uniting and in-cooperating. But it is unfortunate that such intellectuals are scattered and are operating Hindu activities and movements in their own way. Most unfortunate part is that such peoples are directed to fill their own personal interest. Due to this lacuna, Anti Hindu activities are getting good space to operate here. I feel in days to come, Hindus will unite and take stand in one place for Hindu Kingdom. It is essential for all Hindus to unite and come in one place to re-establish Nepal as Hindu Kingdom.
Does change in India will benefit Hindu Nationalist in Nepal ?
We understand that, there is conspiracy in exercise to abolish Hindu Kingdom and constitution of 1990. I experienced that, some Nepalese leaders are trying to erase Nepalese identity as Hindu Kingdom. There was Government of Soniya Congress in India and everything here happened as per her direction, like it destroyed North-east India same practice was exercised here which provided space for anti Hindus. In India also Hindusim was attacked in different times in different reasons but now India has seen political change. Change in India is not only positive for Nepal but for all Hindus around Globe.
What will be role of Indian Indian Hindus , if Hindus are not addressed and things regarding Hindus is not mentioned in up-coming constitution of Nepal ?
If Hindus are bypassed and any conspiracy against Hindus here is attempted, then billion Hindus in India will raise their voice against this, we will take this issue to PM Modi. If any conspiracy and attacks on Hindus in Nepal is exercised then we will stand for any support for them. As far as I know Christians will not be able to erase Nepalese Identity or Hindu Kingdom, no matter how much Dollars they pour here. Nepalese people have now understood and they are capable, I am sure soon Nepal will be re-established as Hindu Rastra and Hindu Kingdom. [Read details here].
Huge Kathmandu Rally on 15-12-2014 for Nepal Hindu State and Hindu Kingdom.
Bibek Raj Deb | HENB | Kathmandu | 16 Dec 2014:: In these days movements in Nepal for restoring Nepal as a Hindu Rashtra and Hindu monarchy are taking high momentum in all the districts as a spontaneous public repercussion against pendancy of Nepal Constitution and the political hegemony of ruling parties and Maoists in particular. Through a big conspiracy the monarchy and Hindu Rastra identity of Nepal were crushed down by the Maoist parties in 2008. since then the restoration of Hindu Rastra and the Monarchy in Nepal are the main contention of the Nepalese people disillusioned from the Christian conspiracy with the help of some foreign countries.
A mammoth Rally for Nepal Hindu State and Monarchy was organized on Monday 15th Dec. 29 (Mansir 2071 BS), by various organisations under the leadership of ‘Nepal Hindu Rastra and Monarchy Reclaiming Action Forum’ (राजसंस्था पुनःस्थापना संघर्ष समिति ). It was a big success. The rally was organized in Kathmandu from Basantapur to Naya Baneswore and ended in front of Constituent Assembly House. The people in the rally demanded Hindu Rastra and monarchy as a mandatory provision in the constitution of Nepal. People in the rally wanted to bring back the constitution of 1990 (2047 BS) without wasting any time. People were marching with placard and Nepal’s national flag with the demand to protect the Hinduness of Nepal. They also proclaimed the King of Nepal as the real guardian of Nepal People and condemned the conspiracy of conversion rights raised by the British envoy in Nepal recently. The people participated in the rally also registered their protest against the corruption, nepotism and foreign hands in Nepal politics and society.
While talking with Dirgharaj Prasai, an ex MP of Nepal and and expert on Nepal-Bharat relations to this correspondent (covering the rally) that the role of India for the restoration of Nepal as a Hindu Kingdom and Hindu State of Nepalan is very important. “India must be positive towards the demand and pulse of the public of the Nepal. Be convinced that without monarchy Nepal can’t adjust. If monarchy in not in Nepal, China can intervene Nepal for its security because China is suspicious on the conspirator roles of CIA and EU to break China and then China is becoming problem in Nepal”.
Without any exception the English Daily Media of Nepal totally suppressed this rise of Hindu people in Nepal for a movement of Hindu Rashtra and Hindu Kingdom as all the media houses of Nepal are indebted to the funds coming from European Union, which are spent mainly to destroy the Hindu supremacy in Nepal.
One paper named ‘Republica’ published a picture of that programme without covering any news separately.

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.

Why no Hindu Rashtra (country) for 1 Billion Hindus in the world?
‘Mega campaign’ for ‘Hindu Rashtra’ in Nepal launched.
Upananda Brahmachari | HENB & Agencies | Kathmandu | 6 Nov 2014:: The Campaign for a Traditional Hindu Rashtra (State) is on to vibrate the present political texture in Nepal while the country is going to adopt its new constitution within a deadline of January 22, 2015. On Thursday (06 Nov 2014) Nepali Congress leader Khum Bahadur Khadka, who is heading a campaign to make pressure for declaring Nepal a Hindu state, said that the country could witness a religious strife if the to be promulgated constitution fails to declare the country Sanatan Hindu State.
The programme was held under the banner ‘Mega Campaign for Reinstating Hindu Nation with Religious Freedom’, at Nepal Academy here.
Although the country was a Hindu nation as per the 1990’s constitution, the country is now a secular state under the Interim Constitution of Nepal 2007.
Addressing a programme organised to launch what Khadka and his group are calling a ‘mega campaign’, Khadka said Nepal, being a Hindu dominated country, should be declared a Hindu state with equal rights for all faiths.
He said his party made a mistake by deciding to go for secularism which the party should correct now. The traditional (Sanatana) Hindu Rashtra is a part of Social life in Nepal.
Khadka said the campaign would lobby with political forces, particularly all wings of his own party, to go for Hindu state.
Nepali Congress leaders Taranath Ranabhat, Chiranjivi Wagle, Haribol Bhattarai, Pushpa Bhusal, Laxman Ghimire, Shankar Pandey, who support the campaign, were also present at the programme.
The Nepali Congress (NC) has opted for a wait-and-see approach on the campaign for reviving the country as a Hindu state launched by its Central Working Committee members.
A faction of the party led by leader Khum Bahadur Khadka is holding a national gathering of the NC leaders and cadres on Thursday in the Capital to put pressure on the political parties and Constituent Assembly to revive Nepal as a Hindu state. The party said has that its leaders and cadres are free to advocate for any religious ideology and the party will not interfere.
“Our party believes in religious freedom and we are against declaring the country a religious state. However, everyone is free to advocate for what they believe in,” said NC Spokesperson Dilendra Badu. Nepal, historically a Hindu state, was declared secular after Jana Andolan II in the Interim Constitution, 2007.
The campaigners have called on Mahasamiti members, district chairpersons, CWC members and party office bearers to attend the gathering to be held at the Academy Hall to their express solidarity for a Hindu state.
The NC, in its election manifesto, has clearly mentioned that the party believes in religious freedom and all that all religions haven an equal status in the society.
Addressing the ceremony, a majority of campaigners said revival of Nepal as a Hindu state would be a binding force among the Nepalis. The campaign was launched under the NC banner. Speakers spent most of their time attacking Christian preachers who “lured thousands of Nepalis with money into conversion”.
Citing that the Christian population in Nepal reached 1.4 percent in 2011 from 0.4 percent in 2001, they said it was possible to do that by spending hundreds of millions to buy poor Hindus and Buddhists.
“It’s part of religious imperialism of the Western world,” charged former NC Chief Whip Laxman Prasad Ghimire, co-coordinator of the campaign. While 81 countries in the world can be Christian states and 51 Muslim, he said, Nepal with three fourths Hindu believers could well be a Hindu state.
Stating that secularism was neither a part of the 12-point understanding nor the popular demand of the 2006 uprising, the NC leaders blamed it on the “conspiracy by the Christian world”.
Mitha Ram Bishwokarma, former parliamentarian, said even MPs were kept in the dark about the plan to declare secularism. Khadka said the protest would continue unless Hindu state is enshrined as an irrevocable clause of the constitution. He warned of protests from the first week of December if the parties did not address the demand.
A 25-member committee formed last week has been made 51-member and a 501-strong central mobilisation committee has been set up to take the programme across the country.
The committee was generated for the revival for Nepal as a “Nation, Nationality and Sanatan Hindu State”. Committee members include CWC member Pushpa Bhusal, former minister and chief whip Laxman Prasad Ghimire, former Speaker of the Parliament Taranath Ranabhat, lawmaker Suwarna Juwarchan and former ministers Chiranjivi Wagle and Devendra Raj Kandel.
According to Ghimire, who is also a joint coordinator of the committee, some 300 NC leaders and cadres are expected at the gathering to show unity in reviving the Hindu identity of the country. He also went on to claim that the NC never actually accepted secularism and that a large section of the party are positive on the revival plan.
The Khadka-led committee has also formed a religious squad, Dharma Rakshyak Gorakshya Sena, to assist in the nationwide campaign. The gathering will set a future course for the campaign, said Ghimire.
On May 18, 2006, former King Gyanendra Shah resurrected “dead” parliament that not only curtailed his power but also declared the country secular. After two years, the newly elected Constituent Assembly 28 May 2008 declared the country republic by sidelining the institution of Monarchy.
The legitimacy of the decision is still being questioned.
How can a parliament dissolved by an elected government be revived, ask critics, and while giving continuity to the unconstitutional decision not only the King’s power was curtailed but also an election to the constituent assembly was declared by the same parliament to finally do away with monarchy?
Nepal Congress leader Khum Bahadur Khadka with an aim to make a heavy pressure for declaring Nepal again a Hindu state.
Earlier, in Kathmandu, October 31, 2014 a meeting was held between the selected Nepali Congress leaders to form ‘Sanatan Hindu Rastra Revival Committee’ headed by Khum Bahadur Khadka as its president and its deputy as Laxman Ghimire and General Secretary Kumar Regmi.
Tara Nath Rana Bhat, Pushpa Bhusal, Devendra Kandel and Subarna Juharchan among others are the members of the committee.
Senior Journalist Dev Prakash Tripathi has been appointed as the committee’s spokesperson.
The Mega Hindu Rashtra Meeting including a Rally in Khathmandu on November 6, 2014 is obviously leading Nepal towards it virtual destination of Hindu Rashtra.
From a source it has been revealed that some Christian missionary elements prompted by European Union countries like Switzerland and Norway and ISI prompted by Pakistan and some other Jihadi and Communist elements are hatching a conspiracy to stop the march for a Hindu Rashtra in Nepal.
As the Hindu Monarchy in Nepal has always been playing an important role in the existence of Hindu Rashtra in Nepal, the Raja-Praja (King and Citizen) reunion and interactions are also being held in these days in Nepal.
The repeated visit of a Hard-liner Hindu Prime Minister of Bharat, Narendra Modi in Nepal is also significant in the advancement of Nepal again in a Hindu state.
Interestingly, there is no Hindu Rashtra (country) for 1 Billion Hindus in the world, while Christians have 157, Muslims have 52, Buddhists have 12 and even Jews have their own one country so far.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and Hindu Existence Forum (HEF) in Bharat (India) are continuously supporting the Hindu activism in Nepal for the revival of Hindu Rashtra in Nepal within a very short span of time.

Why ‘Communists and Atheists’ in in TTD? Stop Proselytizing in Hindu Temples under TTD.
‘Communists and Atheists’ in Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) Administration are allowing Christianity for Conversions in Hindu Temple complexes.

HENB | Hyderabad | 1 Nov 2014:: The Telangana Hindu Vahini has alleged illegal conversion of Hindus into Christianity and illegally preaching Christianity at Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) temples.
“With the support of foreign countries, some people are taking it as a profession to convert innocent tribals into Christianity,” alleged Uppala Raju, state general secretary, Telangana Hindu Vahini.
Raju also accused the appointment of officials at the temple, who are turning a blind eye to the conversions taking place in Hindu temple premises adminstered by the TTD. “Since the appointed people at the temple either have Communist ideology or are atheists and no faith in Hinduism as such, they are not stopping conversions,” Raju alleged, while demanding immediate action against those who are preaching Christianity at temple premises and those supporting it.
Referring to GO No. 168 issued by the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh government in 2012, which prohibits any other religious activity within 100 metres of a place of worship in particular faith, Raju threatened to take matters into their own hands if no further action was taken.
“Christian preachings are taking place inside a temple complex and yet the police are keeping indifferent. If no action is taken, then Hindu people may take law into their own hands for the protection of their own faith,” he warned.
Earlier, embroiled in more controversy as a YouTube video surfaced, in which a self-styled pastor, Mondithoka Sudhir, openly preaches in front of the celebrated Sri Venkateswara temple and proceeds to address his viewers in America, saying he would “free the beautiful Tirumala from the menace of Hinduism.”
Sudhir Mondithoka is seen standing in front of the Tirumala temple, where he again preaches Christianity and calls the idol of Lord Venkateswara as a false idol.
Pilgrims are seen moving around him even as Sudhir Mondithoka continued his ‘propagation’.
Attack the humiliating mentality of this prank pastor and teach him a good lesson.
According to The Hindu, “in a swift move, the Tirupati Urban Police arrested Mondithoka Sudhir, founder-director of the Hyderabad-based Immanuel Baptist Ministry of India (IBMI), from his Puterala residence in Vissannapet mandal of Krishna district in the early hours of Thursday. He has been remanded to judicial custody.”
The Times of India reported that “the shocking video was forwarded to TTD Executive Officer, Mr. M.G. Gopal, by former undivided Andhra Pradesh DGP, Mr. Aravinda Rao, on Wednesday. The person who identified himself as Sudhir uploaded the visuals of his journey to the seven hills and his boasting to his audience that he could even do non-Hindu prayers on his way. He even stopped his car to ask a passerby whether his poverty was gone after his visit to the temple. The TTD vigilance wing found that Sudhir visited Tirumala during Brahmostavam (in September 2013). Cases were booked against six other people for non-Hindu propaganda. Speaking to media, Mr. Gopal said that the TTD would now enforce stricter laws to curb such activities in Tirumala.”

Is this the sign of a Hindu Rashtra in the making?
Church turned into ‘temple’ after 72 Valmikis reconvert to Hinduism.
ERAM AGHA | TNN | ALIGARH | 28 August 2014:: A church with a cross in it that belonged to the 7th Day Adventists overnight turned into a temple adorned with a portrait of Shiva after what some Hindu groups in Aligarh termed the “successful ghar wapasi” (reconversion) of 72 Valmikis who had become Christians in 1995.
There was an elaborate shuddhi karan (purification) ceremony on Tuesday inside the church in Asroi, 30km from Aligarh. Children from the village soon took over the premises and were seen playing in it by afternoon on Wednesday. A cross was allegedly remove from the church and placed outside the gate and a portrait of Shiva installed.
Khem Chandra, Sangh pracharak and pramukh of Dharam Jagran Vivad in Aligarh, said, “This is called ghar wapasi, not conversion. They left by choice and today they have realized their mistake and want to come back. We welcome them. We can’t let our samaj scatter, we have to hold it tight. I have told them that honour comes from within the community and not from outside.” Chandra added that in the years that followed their adoption of Christianity, he met heads of the eight Valmiki families numerous times to convince them to reconsider their decision.
However, as news of the reconversion spread, tension started building up, with sleuths of the Local Intelligence Unit (LIU) converging on the spot. Some villagers told TOI, on condition of anonymity, that the Shiva portrait had been removed and kept inside the house of a local resident. Anil Gaur, one of those who returned to the Hindu fold, said it was because they were unhappy with the caste system that they changed their religion. “But we found ourselves in no better position among Christians,” he said.
“As Hindus we had no status and were restricted to doing menial jobs, but even after remaining a Christian for 19 years, we saw that no one came to us from their community. There was no celebration of Bada Din (Christmas). The missionaries just built a church for us in the vicinity where some of the villagers got married. That was all.”
Seventy-year-old Rajendra Singh said he, too, was happy to reconvert. “While sleeping outside the church one day I suffered a paralytic attack. I found myself unable to move. It happened last year and since then I have been thinking that it may have been Mata Devi’s punishment for abandoning my faith,” he claimed.
Osmond Charles, a lawyer and community leader in Aligarh, isn’t convinced though. “Ghar wapasi sounds like a conspiracy,” he said. “Sometimes we hear ‘love jihad’ and now we have ‘ghar wapasi’. Is this the sign of a Hindu Rashtra in the making?”
Father Jonanthan Lal, pastor at City Methodist Church, said, “The ‘purification’ pooja took place inside the church which belongs to 7th Day Adventists. Such an activity shouldn’t have taken place there. Faith is a personal matter but havan inside a church is not.”
Meanwhile, there is a sudden, eerie quiet in Asroi. Villagers hurry inside their houses if they are asked about the reconversion and most say they know nothing about it. The presence of cops has added to their anxiety. “Don’t ask anything. I don’t know what happened,” a young man said, turning away swiftly from a TOI team.

Historic Hindu temple facing demolition in Pakistan
Javed Bhatti, a custodian of Maharishi Walmeck Sawami Jee temple, in Rawalpindi.
Islamabad | Agencies | 25 August 2014:: A historic Hindu temple in Pakistan`s garrison city of Rawalpindi is facing demolition to make way for barracks for soldiers, outraging the minority community in the country.
The pre-partition temple along with a Hindu graveyard and 53 single-room houses could be demolished as authorities are planning to construct barracks for soldiers.
Built in 1935, Maharishi Walmeck Sawami Jee Temple popularly known as Balaknash Temple is located at Gracy Lines of Chaklala, which falls in the municipal jurisdiction of military-managed Rawalpindi Cantonment Board.
The Hindu community was informed on August 12 that the temple and a Hindu graveyard will be demolished, following which a petition was filed against the move in a court, which stayed the planned demolition on Thursday.
The decision has caused anger among the Hindus as the temple is centre of religious activities of the small community in Rawalpindi, about 25 km from here.
A Hindu resident, Ashok Chand, told media that the temple and the houses were legally built before partition and there was no reason to demolish them.
“We refused to go to India and decided to stay in Jinnah`s Pakistan, now our homes and sacred temple are being bulldozed. Are not we Pakistanis or at least humans?” he said.
The local Hindus living there are being offered alternative accommodation but it is not yet clear whether a new temple will be built for them.
About 60 Hindu families live in Rawalpindi which had a thriving Hindu population before the partition.
The decision for demolishing the temple along with other 53 single room small houses to construct the barracks by the FWO has sent shock waves across the Hindu community. An administrative branch of the Pakistan Army, active duty officers, civilian scientists and engineers serve in the FWO.
Pakistani local municipal workers stand in front of a Hindu temple near the construction site of an underpass in Karachi on March 24, 2014. FILE PIC/AFP.
According to reports, the demolition notices were issued on July 18 but the orders were served on August 12. What had further shocked the community is the demolition of graveyard of Hindus situated at a distance of one kilometre from the temple. Luxurious bungalows are likely to come up on the 6.5 kanals of land.
When contacted, an FWO officer refused to comment on the matter. During a visit to the site, this correspondent saw construction of washrooms for labourers was under way. The bungalows meant for Army officers were also under construction less than a hundred yards away.
Anti-Hindu sentiments run high in Rawalpindi. Recently, unidentified men had attacked the people assembled at a ceremony held in the temple to mark ‘Janamashtami’. Luckily, no one was hurt seriously. Incidentally, the temple was attacked in 1992 following demolition of the Babri mosque in India. Later, the Pakistan government had reconstructed the temple. Since then, 50 Hindu families were living in the temple neighborhood.
“We are living in Pakistan from even before the Partition took place. But life isn’t smooth as it was before 1992,” Ranish Das said, adding that the authorities were forcing the families to shift to another place at the earliest. Another local, Javed Bhatti, confirmed the same. “Authorities of FWO have promised to build flats for us. They want us to hand our land to them. This is unacceptable to us,” Javed said. “Despite the fact that we refused to live in India and stayed here in Jinnah’s Pakistan, authorities want to demolish the temple… Is this fair?” Asfandyar Bhindara, a member of Lower House of Parliament, has moved a petition in a local court of Rawalpindi to stop the demolition. The court issued a stay order in this regard.
Cases of kidnappings and forced conversions are nothing new in Pakistan. As many as 400 Hindu families from Pakistan have migrated to India since 2011, while those left behind are said to have forcibly converted to Islam for escaping the wrath of extremists.
Hindus comprised nearly 15 per cent of the country’s population in 1947. Now, they are a mere two per cent. Of the 428 temples in the country, only 26 are functioning, said Jagmohan Kumar Arora, the community head in Rawalpindi. To make matters worse for the minorities, the cremation ground in Rawalpindi, used by Hindus and Sikhs was demolished on July 19, 2010.

BY FRANCES KAI-HWA WANG in NBC News.
BAPS, Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) Shri Swaminarayan temple, New Jersey, Robbinsville, World’s Largest Hindu Temple in New Jersey
Hindu Existence Media Bureau | New Delhi | Re-posting: 8 August 2014:: The world’s largest Hindu temple is about to open in Robbinsville, New Jersey.
The Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) Shri Swaminarayan temple, known as a mandir, is a 162-acre complex which broke ground in 2009 and is set for completion in 2017.
According to The Times of India, 2,000 artisans in Rajasthan are hand-crafting the temples in Italian and Rajasthani marble. The finished pieces are then assembled in New Jersey by a team of master craftsmen.
The first phase of the project, The Great Prayer Hall — with seating for 1000 people — and Shikharbaddh Mandir temple will be inaugurated in August 2014.
Remaining construction includes a youth activity center, visitor’s center and food court, and a second, larger temple, the Great Akshardham Mandir, expected to be completed in 2017.
The current Guinness Book of World Records holder for the world’s largest comprehensive Hindu temple is the BAPS Swaminarayan Akshardham in New Delhi, India, which sits on a 59-acre complex.
Spiritual leader His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj also holds the Guinness world record for creating and consecrating the most temples by one person — 713 temples in five continents between April 1971 and November 2007.
