Rajiv Srivastava | TNN | Lucknow | Oct 11, 2015:: In what could be seen as first direct statement by a senior VHP functionary over Dadri lynching and subsequent discussions over it, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Sunday said since 2/3rd of the population is non-vegetarian, Sangh Pariwar doesn’t want to change eating habits of the people as being claimed.
“What we want is a complete ban on eating of beef, as mother cow is the centre of faith for Hindus and it should not be hurt,” VHP’s joint general secretary Surendra Jain said.
VHP or sangh pariwar is not making any bid to change the eating habit of the people but certainly want people to desist from eating beef, Jain, who is also the national spokesman of the VHP, further said and added that many people are playing politics on it.
Corroborating his point, the all-India joint general secretary of the VHP gave a challenge to those returning their awards and said that will they go to Saudi Arabai and announce plans to eat pork meat. If they will come back alive from there after their announcement, he would himself welcome them in the country, Jain said and added that else they should stop being hypocrites.
He also hit out at senior Cabinet minister Mohd Azam Khan claiming that his writing a letter to UN was an act of stupidity. To a question, VHP’s joint general secretary said that no wonder the state government has not mentioned beef in its report, it has mentioned consumption of prohibited meat. What else is prohibited, certainly not goat or lamb meat, Jain asked?
He also hit out at Akhilesh-led state government claiming that the state government has adopted pick-and-chose governance. Why members of one community are given Rs 45 lakh and jobs while family members of slain sub-inspector Manoj Misra are still waiting for a word from the government, Jain asked and added why this bias towards members of one community.
TNN | Lucknow | Oct 12, 2015:: Throwing a challenge to writers who are returning their awards, VHP national spokesman Surendra Jain on Sunday asked if they would go to Saudi Arabia and ask for pork there.
“If they do so and return alive, I myself would welcome them, else they should stop being hypocrites,” said Jain, who is in the city for a two-day meet of Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
In a first direct statement by a senior VHP leader after Dadri lynching, Jain said VHP and Sangh Pariwar are aware that 2/3rd of Indian population is non-vegetarian and do not intend to change eating habits of people as being claimed. “What we want is a complete ban on eating of beef, as mother cow is the centre of faith for Hindus and it should not be hurt,” he said and added that Hindus have always respected the religious sentiments of other communities.
Terming SP minister Azam Khan’s letter to United Nations as an act of stupidity, Jain asked chief minister Akhilesh Yadav to sack such ministers. He demanded that Azam Khan should be booked for treason and added that only then Hindus would have faith in the SP government.
Accusing the SP government of appeasement, Jain asked why members of one community got Rs 45 lakh and jobs in compensation while kin of slain cop Manoj Misra are awaiting help from the government.
Alleging that there are reports of cow-slaughter from various parts of this state, Jain said it looks as if a direct challenge is being thrown before Hindus. UP is fast becoming “danga (riot) pradesh”, he added.
