ET Bureau | New Delhi | 26 May, 2015:: Far more belligerent than the Sangh Parivar, seldom caring if their words and actions cause grave embarrassment to the PM, these outfits, from the well-known VHP to the little-known Hindu Makkal Katchi, created their own peculiar and occasionally disturbing narrative. ET picks the 10 most aggressive members of the Fringe Parivar.
(1) Dharam Jagaran Samanvay Samiti
Truth be told, reconversion is a long-running campaign led by this ‘conversion’ wing of RSS. But the Ghar Wapsi made it to headlines only after Modi Sarkar came to power. In a much publicised event in Agra, the outfit led by Rajeshwar Singh converted 300 Muslims to Hinduism in late 2104.
Though a major Ghar Wapsi event in Aligarh scheduled on December 25 was cancelled, the programmes were said to continue in much less-publicised fashion. The group was told to steer clear of media to avoid controversy, and after the Centre found itself on backfoot, Sangh asked Singh to take it easy.
(2) Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha
One of the oldest Hindu organisations in the country, the group decided to honour its most famous member Nathuram Godse by insisting his statues be installed in different cities. Their statement backed by BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj that Godse was a patriot led to an outrage in Parliament.
The group also celebrated February 14 as “Prem Vivah Diwas” meant to encourage people in love with those from a different religion to marry on that day, and let their non-Hindu partners return to “the fold”.
(3) Vishwa Hindu Parishad
The mothership of fringe outfits. Starting December last year, leaders of the group made statements that urged “minorities to return to their roots.” In February, it said it will implement in Goa its Ghar Wapsi programme to bring back into the Hindu fold “Christian brothers whose forefathers were forced to adopt Christianity 400 years ago in Goa.” The group openly declared film stars such as Kareena Kapoor, who had married a Muslim, were a bad influence on society.
National Hindu Movement The group held demonstrations in various places in Goa and Maharashtra, urging all Hindu parents not to “deprive” their children of Hindu culture by admitting them in convent schools.
(4) Rashtriya Hindu Andolan
This Maharashtra-based umbrella organisation of many Hindu groups carried out protests across the country against the screening of Aamir Khan starrer PK as they found it offensive to Hindu sentiment. The group has been protesting for years for removal of ‘secular’ from the Indian constitution.
(5) Rashtrawadi Shiv Sena
The group led the protest against ‘Alishan Pakistan’ expo in New Delhi, an attempt made by industry groups to normalise relations between the two countries. The group demands that India boycott all Pakistani products.
(6) Shiv Sena Hindustan
The group in May 2015 defaced and blackened signages of roads named after Muslim kings Akbar and Firoze Shah in New Delhi. Members of the group said they had a problem with roads being names after “unpatriotic” people.
(7) Hindu Janajagruti Samiti
The group considers itself a cultural custodian of Hindu culture and has protested against six Hindi movies this year, including PK, Singham 2 and many TV shows. The group offers crash courses on “how to protect Hindu girls from Muslims” and “how to perform Ghar Wapsi” and has also accused PM Modi of being soft on minorities.
(8) Hindu Dharma Sena
The group was accused of vandalising a church in Jabalpur in March 2015 and five of its members were arrested. The group had accused the church of converting close to 200 local tribal people into Christianity.
(9) Hindu Makkal Katchi
One of the extreme right groups in Tamil Nadu that came to light for opposing writer Perumal Murugan’s book, ‘Maathorubagan’, the group continued its protests even after the writer announced that he has given up writing, citing pressure from fundamentalists.
(10) Hindu Rashtra Sena
The group was accused of distributing provocative pamphlets in Pune last year which led to unrest in the city, also the murder of a 28-year-old techie.
Post Script by Hindu Existence: HENB obtained the view of its Chief Editor, Upananda Brahmachari that this compilation and listing by Economic Times are absurd and moronic. Only Dharam Jagaran Samanvay Samiti (sl. 1) and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (sl. 3) are the sister concerns of Rashriya Swaymsevak sangha. These orgs report in the annual and special all India meetings of RSS regularly. The orgnaisations under Sangha Parivar have to report to RSS regularly out of their regulations. But, Eight other orgs in this list have co connection with RSS, not even they get any help from the Sangha for their movements or in their crisis. But, it is matter of fact that some (2 to 3) key functionaries of these non Sanghik Org ( eight in the list in question) had their link with RSS earlier. For mention, Sri Arjun Sampath had rendered his more than Pracharak (whole-time preacher) life before he started Hindu Makkal Katchi in 1993. Like wise Sri Promod Muthalik rendered his long pracharak life before establishing Sri Ram Sene. Mysteriously the name of Sri Ram Sene is excluded from this list!
Most of these leaders and key persons of this list are well acquainted with Hindu Existence Forum and keep contact with Upananda Brahmachari, the Chief Editor of Hindu Existence. All these organisations (except VHP and DJSS) will participate in Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Adiveshan in Goa on 11-17 June this year.
The Fourth ‘All India Hindu Convention’, with the objective to establish the ‘Hindu Nation’ will be held in Goa from 11th to 17th June 2015. The first ‘All India Hindu Convention’ was attended by 145 delegates from 40 Hindu organisations in 17 States, and 320 devout Hindus representing 70 Hindu organisations in 20 States participated in the second ‘All India Hindu Convention’ whereas 400 devout Hindus representing more than 125 Hindu organisations and sects from Bharat, Nepal and Bangladesh participated in the third ‘All India Hindu Convention’. This Convention, to be held from 11th to 17th June 2015, will cover various topics such as contribution by Hindu organisations and sects in the interest of the Nation and Dharma, protection of the Motherland from the anti national forces, thorough discussions on various aspects connected with the declaration of Bharat as ‘Hindu Rashtra’ within 2025, finalisation of common action programmes and adopting resolutions serving the interests of Hindus in this holy land.
Upananda Brahmachari told this writer one unique thing. He sees a positive sign in the report that the anti Hindu lobby like Economic Times etc. see upsurging Hindus as an conglomerating monolithic force. RSS must take this advantage to re-establishment of Hindu Rashtra (both existing cultural Hindu Rashtra and upcoming Constitutional Hindu Rashtra) by uniting all these pro-active Hindu forces as the need of the hour, call of the Hindu Rashtra within 2025.
