VHP starts new campaign to end evils of caste bias, untouchability, discrimination to form Resurgent Hindu Society based on Social Equality.
Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | New Delhi | March 22, 2015:: After its glaring “ghar wapsi” campaign, seen by many as a strategy for Hindu consolidation, came under criticism of the secular media and politicos, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) lunches it new agenda to propagate its views on ‘Samarasata‘ (social equality). Retrieving a resolution passed during the 1969 “Udupi conclave” of saints, which said “Hindava sahodaraha sarve (All Hindus are brothers), Na Hindu Patito Bhavet (no Hindu untouchables)/ Mama Diksha Hindu Raksha (to rescue Hindus is initiation), Mama Mantra Samanata (equality is our hymns)”, senior VHP leader Dr Pravin Togadia on Saturday said the organisation will propagate a nationwide campaign in 6 lakh villages against “untouchability”. The Sangh Parivar is of the view that the ostracism of people belonging to the so-called “lower caste” is one of the main reasons for religious conversion, contrary to its philanthropic ideology. The Parivar’s “ghar wapsi” campaign is aimed at bringing back to Hinduism those who converted to faiths in Christianity and Islam.
Now, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said it was asking Hindu families to reach out to all castes, including Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, forest and hill people, as part of its ‘Hindu Mitra Parivar’ programme. Measures would include “making friends with families of other castes, sharing happy and sad moments, visiting each other’s houses, sharing meals, helping them in educational, medical. legal and entrepreneurial help, encouraging the young to take healthy family photos, selfies and sharing them via WhatsApp, Facebook and other social media”.
“The VHP will ensure people from all castes get to drink the same water wherever there is a common water source, that no Hindu is barred from entering any temple, that there is a single crematorium for all Hindus, irrespective of caste,” Dr Togadia said.
Asked whether this campaign was to stop the conversion of Hindus to other religions, Togadia said: “Even if there was no conversion in the country…and if untouchability was still there, we would have still worked to eradicate it.”
Asking him about the report card of the present Modi Govt, Dr Togadia, who reportedly doesn’t share a good rapport with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, replied he has been “too busy” with his work to assess the performance of the BJP government at the Centre. On the issue of beef ban in some states, he said in the name of personal freedom, one cannot disrespect the tradition and culture of the country or else there could be reactions. Dr Togadia also reminded that 25 states of India has their own legal provision to prohibit cow slaughter in their states. It is now the time for the Central Govt. to enforce a central law to ban both Cow slaughter and beef with all strictures.
On the recent developments in J&K after forming a BJP-PDP Govt there, Mr Togadia said: “Massarat Aalam has been released. Terror attacks are rising. The nation is watching… The Jammu and Kashmir chief minister, with his actions, has compromised national interest.” He, however, declined to comment on the BJP’s decision to ally with the PDP but insisted that “national interest and national security should not be compromised anyway”.
The Hindutva firebrand leader, Dr Togadia also batted for the abrogation of Article 370, a long-time demand of the BJP, saying that the VHP remains committed to it and will struggle for a terror free and prosperous India by making a Hindu Rashtra in India.
Dr Togadia has been banned thrice in recent to attend his public programme in connection with Golden Jubilee Celebration of VHP in Bengaluru (Karnataka), Kandhmal (Odisha) and Udupi (Karnataka).

Spiritual Science Research Foundation under the guidance of Sanatan Sanstha introduces the “University of Spirituality – Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay” on the Holy Hindu New Years Day.
HENB | Goa | March 21, 2014:: Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) under the guidance of Sanatan Sanstha (SS) introduces the “University of Spirituality – Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay“ on the Holy Hindu New Years Day, today on 21 March 2015. This University will disseminate the spiritual energy to strengthen Hindu Janajagruti Samiti‘s (HJS) movement for re-establishment of a Practical Hindu Rashtra in Bharat and the Global Hindu Empowerment for more than one billion Sanatan People through generating Vedic vision within 2025.
In its website, http://spiritual.university/ it describes, A new era in human history will be dawning, and we are witnessing the darkest hour before dawn. In 2023 after the dust has settled from the Third World War, we and our future generations will witness almost a thousand years of peace due to a period of spiritual renewal. The bedrock of this millennium will be spiritual learning and spiritual evolvement, and will form the basis for all governance and life on the planet. A new way of thinking will be required for this period and its generations. More importantly a new education system will be required to nurture a spiritually evolved generation of people, one that is quite different from the one we have today.
As the University of Spirituality begins its distinguished journey as a premier institution for spiritual learning, we have put together a small presentation to introduce you to its vision and purpose.
This is the unique University that will lead the world’s real understanding of Spirituality and foster an environment for spiritual growth in this millennium and beyond.
We invite you to be a part of the University of Spirituality and in doing so a part of history.
Since the ancient times till about a thousand years ago, Bharat (India) was renowned as the paradise of universities. Through the universities like Takshashila, Mithila, Bhojshala etc. and also through the Ashrams of Sages and Seers, the Vedas, Scriptures, disciplines of Knowledge, Arts, Dharma, Philosophy, etc. were taught and Hindu Dharma and culture were spread appropriately. The flame of knowledge about Dharma, which became dim after the devastating attacks of foreigners is now being revitalised by us through the medium of ‘Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’ (University of Spirituality).
Out of the ruins of Takshashila, Mithila and Bhojshala, which in previous millennia were universities of the same calibre and ilk, and then were destroyed by barbaric invaders, the flame of Absolute Knowledge will rise again into the new millennium through the Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay (also known as the University of Spirituality).
Thousands of seekers from 25 countries are practicing Spirituality under the guidance of the Spiritual Research Centre and Ashram in Ramnathi Goa which is the precursor to a fully-fledged University of Spirituality. Approximately 400 seekers reside at the Spiritual Research Centre and Ashram and are fully engaged in various activities to help promote a better understanding of Spirituality in the world. Intensive spiritual workshops are conducted regularly where seekers from all over India (Bharat) and the world come to attend. Extensive spiritual research into various spiritual phenomena is being conducted. Along with this, the Research Centre has a fully equipped audio visual studio to record various spiritual events, subtle experiments and spiritual phenomena.
In his Holy Message, the Spiritual Fountain Head of Sanatan Sanstha, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and Spiritual Science Research Foundation, Pujya Gurudeva H.H. Dr. Jayant Balaji Athavale says,”It was not my intention to establish a University just to give theoretical information about the subject of Spirituality to students like other universities. The main intention is to get their spiritual progress done so that they attain Moksha (Final Liberation).”
The introductory audio-visual presentation available in YouTube speaks more about the project of “Adhyatma Vishwavidyalay’ – University of Spirituality”, very articulately.

Third time ban in span of a month. Dr Togadia banned again from entering Udupi for ‘Hindu Samajotsava’.
HENB | Udipi (Karnataka) | March 7, 2015:: Vishwa Hindu Parshad (VHP)’s international working president Dr Pravin Togadia has been banned for a week from entering Udupi district of Karnataka for the ‘Hindu Samjotsava’ rally to be held here at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial College ground on March 9.
Unfortunately enough that anti BJP states are banning the entry of Dr Togadia in a very undemocratic and un-deplorable way only to demoralize the Hindus getting united in the various functions being organized in the event of Golden Jubilee of VHP.
In a span of 31 (thirty one) days, Dr Togadia has been banned thrice (3) consecutively.
1. Bengaluru (Karnataka) Prohibition 05 Feb-<8 Feb Bengaluru Prog>-11 February.
2. Kandhmal (Odisha) Prohibition 26 Feb-<28 Feb Phulbani Prog>-4 March.
3. Udupi (Karnataka) Prohibition 07 Mar<9 Mar Udipi Prog>-13 March.
Now, The Udupi district administration and the police have imposed the ban to prevent any provocative speech by the VHP leader which might disrupt communal harmony and create law and order problems, deputy commissioner, Udapi district Vishal R said.
Condemning the ban, VHP district president Suprasad Shetty said it is aimed at hurting Hindu sentiments. “The government’s move is aimed at hurting the sentiments of the Hindus,” he said. Shetty said the state government’s “anti-Hindu” policies had been exposed. “We will not allow to continue it any longer,” he said, adding, that the organisation would move court against the ban order. In the event of Togadia’s absence, the VHP would decide who should be the main speaker at the meeting, Shetty said. Togadia had spoken at Udupi in the ‘Hindu Samajotsava’ in 2003 and it did not create any problem, he said.

A large number of followers of VHP, Bajrang Dal and other people of Udupi District, Dakshina Kannada District, Uttar Kannada, Shimoga and other neighboring areas were expected to participate in this programme.
Udupi superintendent of police Annamalai in his letter dated March 1 has recommended prohibition of Togadia’s entry into Udupi district.
The deputy commissioner of Udupi district after analysing the facts passed the ban order yesterday, officials said.

“Nothing wrong in ‘ghar wapsi, what is wrong in coming back?” : Jain Muni Tarun Sagar.
A constitutional amendment making India a “Hindu rashtra” would be a good solution to protect the Hindus: Dr. Praveen Togadia.
Muslims and Christians in the country should admit that their ancestors were Hindus: Dr. Subramanian Swamy.
HENB | Indraprasth (Delhi) | 1 March 2015:: On the occasion of its Golden Jubilee celebrations, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, organised Virat Hindu Sammelan – Mega Hindu Gathering on Sunday, March 01, 2015, at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium New Delhi.
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad today waded into the controversy relating to religious conversions, saying there is nothing wrong in its ‘ghar wapsi’ programme and called for a law to check “forced” conversions.
The VHP said Parliament should pass a law on forced religious conversions and maintained that while conversions were wrong, there is nothing wrong in ‘ghar wapsi’ or reconversion back to Hinduism.
Addressing a congregation here to mark VHP’s golden jubilee, VHP’s International Working President Pravin Togadia said Congress President Sonia Gandhi and SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav should ensure passage of a bill in Parliament to prevent religious conversions.
“Let there be no conversions, but say yes to ghar wapsi,” he said addressing the gathering.
Claiming that Hindus were not safe in India, he said if we are not careful, then states like Assam, West Bengal and Kerala will be “devoid” of any Hindu population.
Togadia also slammed US President Barack Obama for his recent “religious intolerance” remarks, saying “we do not require sermons” as they have failed to prevent an attack on a temple there. He, however, did not name the US President.
Togadia said Art. 25 of the Constitution lays down that a person has freedom of conscience and can engage in free profession, practice and propagation of religion.
The VHP leader’s remarks came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in Lok Sabha that “nobody has the right to discriminate on the basis of religion… No one has the right to take law into his hands”.
Referring to the Ram temple in Ayodhya, Togadia said VHP is celebrating a festival today to marks its anniversary as there is still no Ram Temple there.
“We will have festivities once there is a Ram temple, once four lakh Kashmiri Hindus return to the Valley trampling on the chests of jihadis,” he said.
He said that to protect the interests of Hindu, a constitutional amendment making India a “Hindu rashtra” would be a good solution.
Addressing the gathering, VHP’s International President G Raghava Reddy said there was a need to maintain the Hindu population at 80 per cent in the country.
“While Christians have monetary sources for conversions and Muslims have force of population, the Hindus should do a course on unity,” he said.
He alleged that Christians get Rs 40,000 crore annually for conversion activities.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said Muslims and Christians in the country should admit that their ancestors were Hindus.
He also said he will work for the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya by seeking a judicial pronouncement in its favour.
Jagatguru Shankrachayra Vasudevanand Saraswati sought to play down the controversy surrounding Sai Baba as some remarks were made against him by certain Hindu religious leaders. He said Sai Baba was a Hindu and a Brahmin and his name should not be dragged into any controversy.
He said that the 2014 Lok Sabha election results show that Hindus had united to vote for BJP.
On the issue of conversions, he said that while it was a crime to convert people, reconversion of those who had earlier converted to other religions was “welcome”.
Tarun Sagar, a Jain monk, spoke on similar lines, saying that while he opposes conversions, “what is wrong in coming back?”
Present: Jagadguru Shankaracharya Swami Vasudevanand Saraswati ji Maharaj, Mahamandaleshwar Swami Satyamitranand Giri ji Maharaj, Gita Manishi Swami Gyananand ji Maharaj, Pujya Sant Tarun Sagar ji Maharaj, Buddhist Saint Lama Tyogdan Rimpoche ji Maharaj from Ladakh, Shri Sudhanshu Ji Maharaj from Vishwajagriti Mission along with Joint General secretary-RSS, Suresh Soni, VHP veteran Ashok Singhal, President Raghav Reddy, working president Dr. Pravin Togadia, vice president Rajmata Chandrakanta ji, Organising Gen sec, Dinesh Chandra, Dr. Subramanian Swami and the national convener of Bajrang Dal shri Rajesh Pandey, were present in the the mega gathering.

Stone ‘them’ and deport to Pakistan who obstruct Hindu Rashtra in Bharat.
Hindu population will soon reach 125 crore through meaningful ‘Gharwapsi': Sadhvi Saraswati.
HENB | Mangaluru | Mar 1, 2015:: The fire brand Hindu Icon, Sadhvi Saraswati has hailed the Hindus of coastal district of Karnataka as ‘enlightened’, ‘ever-alert’ and ‘custodians of Hindu culture’.
Speaking at Virat Hindu Sammelan organized at VHP’s Golden Jubilee Celebration at Nehru Maidan in City of Mangaluru on Sunday, the main attraction of Hindu Samajotsav – Sadhvi Saraswati pressed the audience for unique unity of Hindu society with a warrior power to combat the Jihadi force trying to Islamize the land of Bharat (India).
Calling upon the Hindus to be united and fight for the cause of Hindu Rashtra, Sadhvi Saraswati said that it should be everyone’s priority to protect the interest of the Hindu nation.
The young Sadhvi from Madhya Pradesh, who is known for her firebrand public speeches exposing Islam, Secular Politics and anti Hindu elements, especially in events of Sangh Parivar, on Sunday offered special pooja at Kadri Manjunath Temple in the city before heading to Nehru Maidan.
The star speaker of today’s Hindu Samajtosav told media persons on the temple premises that Mangaluru always attracts her.
Responding to a question, she endorsed the controversial ‘Ghar Wapsi’ campaign of Sangh Parivar and said that the population of Hindus will soon reach 125 crore if the Ghar Wapsi campaign was carried out in a proper manner. Sadhvi called upon the media to promote Hindu culture and take up issues related to Hindus. All Hindus must be aware of the burning issues of Hindu society, she said. Increasing influence of western culture, cases of love Jihad and conversion of Hindus to other religions etc. are major threat to Hindu society in India, she said, and exhorted Hindus to be united to face the challenges.
The young Sadhvi, who did not allow the saffron brigade to feel the absence of VHP supremo Praveen Togadia on the stage of Samajotsav, made several indirect attempts to compare Indian Muslims with Pakistanis throughout her Desi accent Hindi speech.
Spurred by the positive response of the thrilled crowd, the firebrand speaker exhorted the Hindus to take an oath to re-establish the Hindu Rashtra in India and protect their ‘nation’, ‘religion’ and ‘women’ from ‘enemies’.
Lashing out at AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, she said that the former lacks the guts to speak in front of Hindus.
Recalling the controversial statements of Owaisi brothers, she said that they are the enemies of the Hindu nation. “He (Owaisi) is still alive in this country because he took the name of Ramji or else it would be difficult to recognize him even with an autopsy. Stone ‘them’ and deport to Pakistan who obstruct Hindu Rashtra in Bharat. Nobody will be allowed here to re-frame again any Pakistan in the land of majority Hindus since time immemorial” she said.
The programme was blessed by Swami Vishvesha Theertha Maharaj, Chief pontiff of Pejawar Mutt who said that Hinduism promotes harmony and tolerance in society. ‘Burn your ignorance, not Bhagavad Gita’, says Pejawar seer in his emotional speech at Hindu Samajotsav at Mangalore.
The event was spontaneous, vigorous and huge crowd-pulling. Thousands of activists of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal took out a grand ‘Shobha Yatra’ in Mangaluru to mark the launch of Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Virat Hindu Samajotsav. The rally was formally flagged off at Dr Ambedkar circle in the heart of the city in the presence of, seers, religio-political leaders and functionaries of VHP and Bajrang Dal.
Thousands of activists who took out mini rallies from various parts of the city joined the Shobha Yatra at Dr Ambedkar circle and marched towards Nehru Maidan, wherein Pejewar Mutt pontiff Sri Vishvesha Theertha Swamiji inaugurated the meet by performing ‘go-poojan’.
A considerable number of women also took part in the colourful Shobha Yatra which completely blocked road stretch between state bank bus terminus and Dr Ambedkar Circle for a long time. Euphoric slogans such as ‘Hindu Rashtra ki Jai’, ‘Vande Mataram’, ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, ‘VHP-RSS ki Jai’, ‘Jai Shri Ram’, ‘Bharat me rhyna hog to Vande Matram khyna hoga’, were raised by the people during the Shobha Yatra amidst music bands. Cultural troupes and tableaux were also part of the grand procession.
Some tension was also sparked in the city in relation to the programme and for a claim to ban the activities of PFI in Karnataka for their anti national activism.

Pro-Christian Naveen banned Pragmatic Hindu Praveen.
Total Shutdown over ban on VHP leader Praveen Togadia disrupts normal life grossly in Kandhamal.
HENB | Bhubaneswar | 28 Feb 2015:: The day-lengthy (dawn to dusk- 12 hrs) Kandhamal Bandh called by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Saturday in protest against the refusal of the State Government to allow VHP international working president Pravin Togadia to enter the district evoked total response. While vehicular traffic came to a standstill, all trade and business establishments, banks, Government offices including the Collectorate office were also closed.
Togadia was scheduled to address a public meeting at the district headquarters town of Phulbani here to mark the golden jubilee celebrations of VHP on Saturday.
Apart from the district headquarters, the bandh was also total in the Daringbadi and Raikia areas. Reports said armed police forces were frisking vehicles at several places in Madhapur, Kalinga, Tumudibandh, Kotagada and Khajuripada to stop entry of VHP leaders to the district. Besides, four platoons of armed police forces, led by DIG Amitabh Thakur, were deployed at Chari Chhak in Boudh bordering Kandhamal district to stop entry of VHP activists from outside the district.
VHP and Bajrang Dal activists, seen picketing in front of government offices and commercial establishments, however exempted emergency services and school students from the shutdown.
“We have deployed personnel at sensitive areas to maintain law and order and are keeping a watch on the situation,” Kandhamal superintendent of police KV Singh said.
VHP leader Paresh Mahapatra said the administration was biased against them to appease Christian missionaries. “The administration banned Togadia, when in the past they have allowed Christian leaders to hold meetings,” Mohapatra alleged.
Describing the bandh as a success, VHP’s East Zone Assistant Secretary, Priyanath Sharma said it was observed in a peaceful manner in protest against the administration’s decision to ban Togadia’s visit to the district which was completely undemocratic.
The district, having a sizable chunk of Christian population, has a history of communal violence. Anti-Christian riots left at least 38 dead and thousands displaced in 2008 after the murder of VHP leader Laxmanananda Saraswati.
The district administration had clamped a seven-day ban on Togadia’s entry from Thursday evening after a Christian group wrote to chief minister Naveen Patnaik, opposing the hardline Hindu leader’s address in Kandhamal’s district headquarter.
According to Kandhamal Collector N Thirumala Nayak, the district administration took all requisite measures to prevent any untoward incident during the bandh. Adequate security was provided to all churches in the district, he said. He also said the High School Certificate (HSC) examinations went on smoothly all over the district in the day. Kandhamal VHP leader Bhagaban Mohanty expressed his profound gratitude to the people for their support in making the bandh a total success. The BJP district unit also joined the bandh call.
European Union and Churches converting Hindus into Christianity in Odisha
Naveen is a virtual anti-Hindu, Retaliates Dr Togadia.
Being censored by Biju Janta Dal Govt. run by Naveen Patnaik for his entry to Phulbani the district town of Kandhmal to attend a pre-scheduled VHP programme in its Golden Jubilee celebration and a health camp there on Saturday, Dr Praveen Bhai Togadia Todadia, the VHP international working president vehemently retaliated over the issue.
“I wanted to go to Kandhamal to feed poor children and provide treatment to downtrodden by a team of specialist doctors from Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. But the Naveen Patnaik Government did not allow me to go there”, this was said by Dr Praveen Bhai Togadia here on Saturday.
Speaking at a Press conference, Togadia said, “European Union team and Christians can go to Kandhamal but not a Indian nationalist like me. Naveen is anti- poor, anti-tribal and anti –Hindu.”
“While Naveen Patnaik allowed a delegation of EU to visit Kandhamal, he did not allow me to enter the tribal dominated district. Therefore, I call him anti-Hindu,” Togadia said.
Asked whether denial of permission to him was the reason behind calling Patnaik “anti-Hindu”, Togadia said, “Not exactly. I have been working for the welfare of tribals and Hindus. I visited Rourkela and Cuttack and spoke about development of Hindus and tribals. I would have also spoken the same thing in Kandhamal.”
The VHP working preseident also elaborated his organisation’s action plan for the welfare of Hindus. “We have programmes for health, education, employment and agriculture for Hindus who have been neglected,” he said, adding that the VHP has urged doctors, teachers and others to extend helping hands to encourage Hindus.
Replying to a question on the Centre’s denial of any assistance for Lord Jagannath’s Nabakalebar festival, the VHP leader said, “They should do somehing for the Lord’s festival. When you are giving funds for Kumbh Mela and Haj, there should have been provision for Nabakalebar festival.”
Among others, VHP functionaries Arun Kumar Upadhyay, Nagendra Kumar Debadtta, Prahalad Khandelwal and Prasanta Panda were present.

Divine Home- Divine Village Programme of VHP in its Golden Jubilee Year. VHP plans to plant Tulsi in every Hindu home and make Panchavati in every Hindu village.
PTI | Lucknow | 9 February 2015:: On the lines of the mythological “Panchvati” garden mentioned in Ramayana, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has decided to plant five trees in every village in the country and gift “Tulsi” saplings, considered sacred among Hindus, to every household of the community.
“With the concept of an ideal home, VHP will carry out a programme between June and July during which it will donate a Tulsi plant to every Hindu house besides developing ‘Panchvati’ in every village,” VHP spokesman Sharad Sharma said on Monday.
Sharma said the programme would be carried out across the country ahead of monsoon so that the trees get ample water to grow.
“The seers are of the opinion that Hindu society must give prominence to its religious belief and tradition. Therefore, five plants should be planted in every village and every house must have a Tulsi plant,” he said.
Besides Tulsi, the five other plants that the VHP intends to plant include Banyan, Peepal, Gular, Pakad and Ashok.
[But according to a divine design Hindu Existence Forum already started to grow saplings of Ashathwa (Peepal Tree) Ficus religiosa, Bilwa (Wood Apple Tree) Aegle marmelos, Vata (Banyan Tree) Ficus benghalensis, Ashoka (Ashoka Tree) Saraca asoca and Amlaki (Amla Tree) Phyllanthus emblica including Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) saplings in its own horticulture centers. ~ Editor, Hindu Existence].
“This will not only benefit environment, but is also in consonance with our religious beliefs. Besides, it is a good way for the organisation to reach out to every village” he said, adding that all these plants have been mentioned in the mythological epic Ramayana.
Sharma also stated that before this programme a ‘Ram Mahotsava’ would be organised across the country by the VHP.
The VHP had already decided to organise, for the first time, a ‘Ram Mahotsava’, on the lines of Durga Puja, to “mobilise Hindus” for construction of a Ram temple.
“We will celebrate Ram Mahotsava from 21 March or 22 March and it will continue till 1 April. This will be for the first time that such an event is being organised by the organisation,” Sharma, the VHP media incharge, said on Monday.
This programme would be organised in every village in the country to make the society aware of Lord Ram, he said.
He said Hindus have already been asked to take a resolve for construction of the temple, “But for the completion of that resolve they will be asked to take the pledge once again”.
“We plan to reach 1.5 lakh to 2 lakh villages across the country. In Uttar Pradesh and Uttrakhand, we will make efforts to reach each and every village,” he said.
The VHP media incharge said the organisation has also planned 600 ‘Hindu Sammelans’ across the country.

‘intolerance in India would have Mahatma Gandhi, instead of preaching in India, Obama can take note of racial conflict in his country’….
‘This is the century of Hindutva, not just in India but in the entire world’….
Will install Gauri-Ganesh in every mosque, says Yogi Adityanath
Zee Media Nureau | New Delhi/Varanasi | 10 Feb 2014:: BJP’s firebrand MP from Gorakhpur Yogi Adityanath has triggered a fresh controversy by saying that he will install idols of Gauri-Ganesh in every mosque, if given a chance.
Adityanath was speaking at Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s ‘Virat Hindu Sammelan’ organised as part of its golden jubilee year celebration in Varanasi.
Referring to the Gyanvapi mosque which was constructed by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb after he demolished the original Kashi Vishwanath temple, Adityanath said, “Has it happened anywhere in the world that Gauri and Ganesh are inside a mosque? When Hindu samaj goes for darshan of Vishwanath then Gyanvapi mosque taunts us. If that’s how it is, give us permission, we will install Gauri, Ganesh and Nandi in every mosque.”
Adityanath also said, “Aryavart created Aryans; will make Hindus in Hindustan,” he said.
“Everyone can come to Kashi but only Muslims are allowed in Mecca and Medina,” Adityanath said, adding, “This is the century of Hindutva, not just in India but in the entire world.”
The controversial MP also justified ‘Ghar Wapasi’ and questioned the ‘secular’ brigade, saying, “When missionaries carry out conversion by alluring innocent tribal people and dalits in the name of service to humanity why secular do forces keep quiet?”
On Barack Obama’s statement that acts of intolerance in India would have Mahatma Gandhi, Adityanath said that instead of preaching India, the US President should take note of racial conflict in his country.
Adityanath’s comments in Varanasi comes days after he had criticised the “politics of appeasement”, saying his vision for inclusive growth means equal rights for the majority Hindu community as well as for the minorities.
“Inclusive growth means where a graveyard as well as a crematorium gets money. A Muslim’s daughter gets scholarship as well as a Hindu’s daughter. Where madrasas get grants and also Sanskrit schools. My ‘sabka saath, sabka vikaas’ involves no appeasement politics,” the MP said while campaigning for the BJP in the recently concluded assembly polls in Delhi.
Recently two other BJP MPs from UP, Union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti and Sakshi Maharaj had triggered similar controversies.
Both Sadhvi and Maharaj had to apologise in Parliament for their controversial remarks, this after Prime Minister ticked off BJP MPs and asked them to desist from making such statements and asked them not to cross the ‘Lakshman Rekha’.

Justice Abdul Nazir of Karnataka High Court had on Friday turned down the interim prayer by Karnataka VHP to stay the police commissioner’s order, banning Togadia’s entry into the city from February 5 to 11.
“It is the most autocratic, obnoxious, dictatorial and paranoid action obviously taken at the instance of the Police Commissioner’s political masters.” —Dr Praveen Togadia.
Yes, If it has any Islamic connection and Muslim appeasement anyway, Hindu leaders will be banned everywhere and PM Modi will have to look vacate!!!!
Police ban on Dr. Praveen Togadia defied, Togadia’s recorded speech played at ‘Virat Hindu Samajotsava’ rally in Bengaluru. Now, VHP demands ‘Constitutional Hindu Nation’ in Bharat.
Bengaluru | HENB | February 08, 2015::
What is sorry state of of the great concept ‘Cultural Hindu Rashtra’ of RSS, where Cow slaughter is rampant, Christian Conversion is enormous, Love Jihad is tantamount, Pilgrim taxes are taken from Hindus, Islamic terrorism is growing in this soil, Conspiracy of dethroning the Hindus from India is obvious and now even Hindu Leaders like Dr Praveen Togadia is banned in Bengaluru or Sri Promod Muthalik is banned in Goa
. Swami Aseemanada, Sadvi Pragya or Sant Asaram Bapu are languishing behind the bar.
Are Hindus in India at their freedom on and from 15 August 1947. Or a new spate of subjection and the shackle of bondage?
But the Hindus under the banner of Vishwa Hindu Parishad is now marching forward for a real freedom for the Hindus in Bharat with a demand of constitutional Hindu rashtra.
Defying multi-dimemtional gag by police, VHP leader Praveen Togadia’s (who is the International working president of the VHP) video recorded speech was played at a rally here today in which he called for Ghar Wapsi (homecoming) and establishment of “Constitutional Hindu Nation” in Bharat.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Bengaluru) Alok Kumar said, “We have taken note of the violation; we will get opinion of our legal officers and we will take further action.”
At ‘Virat Hindu Samajotsava’ rally to mark the Golden Jubilee Celebration of VHP, Togadia said in his recorded speech,”…We want security, security for hundred crore Hindus… We want prosperity for Hindus… We want honour for Hindus…”
The organisers played the address ignoring the police orders banning displaying or transmitting the speech through audio, visual or other media.
Police had issued fresh orders yesterday imposing the multi-media gag after the Karnataka High Court had upheld its ban prohibiting entry of Togadia into the city for a week from February 5.
Apprehending that the ‘Samajotsava’ organisers might circumvent the ban by showing Togadia’s speech using audio or visual media, Bengaluru Police Commissioner M N Reddi had issued the orders.
Togadia left for Ahmedabad from Hosur in Tamil Nadu via Bengaluru where he was taken to the airport, police said earlier in the day.
Security was beefed up around the venue and in sensitive parts of the city, with policemen, assisted by Rapid Action Force, Quick Response Teams and other security personnel deployed in good strength.
“…let no one teach us about tolerance, from the time when this universe was created we have tolerance, if we were not tolerant, people from across the world couldn’t have come and settled here,” Togadia said.
“Those who do religious conversions are the enemies of tolerance. Hindus have never done religious conversions.
Hindus have been converted, now Hindus will not be converted, we will do Ghar Wapsi…”
As Togadia spoke, a huge crowd gathered at the National High School Ground cheered and raised slogans in his praise. They also raised slogans against Siddaramaiah government holding it responsible for banning his entry into the city.
we won’t allow Hindus (number of Hindu’s) to recede; …for security and prosperity of Hindus, the government in the country has to think about Hindus, for this we have to establish a Samvidanik Hindu Rashtra,” Togadia said.
Justice Abdul Nazir of Karnataka High Court had on Friday turned down the interim prayer by Karnataka VHP to stay the police commissioner’s order, banning Togadia’s entry into the city from February 5 to 11.
Reddi had earlier this week imposed the ban on the ground that Togadia’s “provocative” and “inflammatory” speeches would have “grave” consequences and there likelihood of breach of peace.
VHP had challenged the Commissioner’s orders on Togadia’s entry into the city in the High Court with the interim prayer for a stay on the ban.
While declining the interim plea, the Judge, however, had said Hegde’s petition was maintainable and adjourned the matter without mentioning the next date of hearing.
Reacting over the ban of Dr. Praveen Togadia in Bengaluru for participating in Virat Hindu Samajotsava rally, Sri Upananda Brahmachari, the Editor of Hindu Existence and the propagator of ‘New Hindu Age’ and ‘Struggle for Hindu Freedom’ expressed that, ‘the Bengaluru ban of Dr Togadia would be a mile-stone of resurgent Hindu movement in modern India, when an organisation of Sangha Parivar has demanded a Constitutional Hindu Rashtra in India, publicly’.
Adding further, Upananda Brahmachari said, ‘See, I am a Swyamsevak (RSS Cadre) since my student life. As per my conviction, Dr Hedgewar (the founder of RSS) and Veer Savarkar (the champion Hindu revolutionary) both wanted Hindu Rashtra upon the base of totality of Hindu empowerment in Bharat. So, political and constitutional empowerment is also the essential need of the being a Hindu Rashtra here in India. Dr Togadia is perfectly correct in his demand of Constitutional Hindu Nation here and it is the demand of one billion Hindus in this world. If there are more than 150 constitutionally valid Christian states in this world, over 50 Muslim states over 10 Buddhist states and even one Jew state, then why not two Hindu state in Bharat and Nepal, where Hindus are in 80% and above 80% majority?’
‘ We have been disseminating and popularizing this concept of Constitutionally valid and Real Dharmik Hindu State in Bharat since 2012 trough a Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan every year in Goa. It is building a tremendous effect on the matter. The public of India is now more concerned about this demand of Hindu Rashtra in Bharat. I am trying hard to keep contact through email or personally with the most admirable Hindu proponents like PP Ashok Ji Sinhal (VHP), Dr. Mohan Bhagawat (RSS), Dr. Praveen Togadia (VHP), Dr. Charudutta Pingle (HJS) and Dr Subramanian Swamy (BJP) for having their blessings and suggestions for a Constitutional Hindu Rashtra in Bharat. All the Venerated Shankaracharyas and Respectable Hindu saints are also advocating Dharma Rashtra in Bharat. The reputed western Indologists like Stephen Knapp, Koenraad Elst, David Frawley and François Gautier are also advocating a rise of Sanatan Dhrma culture in Bharat. And we must consider the immense blessings of two living legend of contemporary India – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Baba Ramdev to gear up our march towards the goal of Hindu Rashtra. So, it is a very positive environment in Bharat to have a constitutionally valid and internationally recognised Hindu Nation-State in Bharat. We must have it within a time frame of 2025 or earlier’, Brahmachari communicated to our Bengaluru desk.
Demand of constitutional Hindu Rashtra in Bharat by VHP has perhaps traumatized the pseudo secular forces in India. Repercussions are yet to come. —–with the special input from PTI and ANI.

‘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: email@example.com
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”.

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.
