HENB | New Delhi | Jan 1, 2016:: It is over eighteen months since a BJP-led NDA government came to power. Whilst the secularists believe that scams were responsible for BJP’s victory, it was also UPA’s disdain for the Indian Civilization that contributed greatly to its loss.
The NDA has symbolically reversed the trend for example, through the celebration of International Yoga Day but is yet to effect legislative change to provide Hindus with equal human rights.
Here is what BJP driven NDA can do for the Hindu community in 2016.
The founders of the Constitution deemed it appropriate to use the concept of secularism without spelling out its meaning.
The word ‘secular’ was made part of the preamble of the Indian Constitution during the Emergency (1975-77). However, the word was left undefined.
When the Janata Party came to power in 1977 an attempt was made to define ‘secular republic’ to mean a ‘republic’ in which there is equal respect for all religions’. The Janata government had a majority in the Lok Sabha but a minority in the RajyaSabha where it was voted down by the Congress.
When accepted this would ensure that every Government scheme is equally available to all Indian citizens for e.g. a program to provide cycles to only poor Muslim girls would violate the Constitution.
Again the special treatment to Minority people goes to appease a major population in various blocks, sub division, districts where they are not minority at all. But, the majority Hindu people where they are minority in various blocks, sub division, districts do not get any declared facilities for the minorities.
The conventional minority policy maintained in India in its various states remain in an appeasement tool for vote bank politics.
There is no clear guidance anywhere in constitution or in law book to consider the people for being minority or as such. In such a situation 15% Muslim in India is considered as “Meaningful Minority” and the less than 5% minorities like Jain, Buddhist, Persi and Christians are “Meaningless Minority”.
This majority-minority division must be stopped on religion basis and matter of Minority must be clarified in good light.
As there is a high tendency of a section of people to introduce Sharia Law above the Constitution of India, Govt of India must step into the enactment of Uniform Civil Code without any discrimination of majority or minority people.
In most Southern states offerings made by devotees in temples become part of the State Treasury with only a fraction being used on temple upkeep and direct benefit of the Hindu community. Elsewhere the Government effectively controls temple administration.
According to TR Ramesh, President,Temple Worshippers Society Chennai “in Tamil Nadu temples have over 478,000 plus acres of land, 2.44 cr sq feet of property for which the TN HR & CE department gets only Rs 58 crs p.a. In reality income from all temples, mutts would, on a conservative basis generate Rs 6,000 crs p.a.” The four devaswom boards in Kerala have revenues in excess of Rs 1,000 crs p.a. Ditto for other Southern states.
Hindus should be allowed to manage their temples and use its income to preserve their culture, language, script, pay adequate salaries to priests, propagate Dharma, maintain places of worship of all communities covered by The Hindu Marriage Act (i.e. Hindus, Buddhist, Jains and Sikhs) the last three of whom were not considered as minorities when the constitution was adopted in 1950. Only a member of these four communities can be on the Temple Management Board. However, Hindu charitable hospitals and schools would be open to all.
Temples to follow the same rules and regulations that apply to mosques and churches. Hindus seek only Equality before Law as provided for under Article 14 and freedom to manage their own affairs in religion, establish institutions, acquire and administer such properties.
Again, it is unfortunate that three holy and highly venerated Hindu shrines are being humiliated and restricted for the Hindu devotees in Ayodhya Ram Janmabhoomi, Kashi Vishwanath and Mathura Krishna Janmabhoomi. Though the black spot of Babri was demolished by the Karsevaks (Hindu warriors) on Dec 6th 1992, the Aurangzeb Mosques still remain on the vandalized temple remains at Kashi and Mathura. Govt. must take the cognizance for the bruised Hindu sentiment and start the process of construction of Rama Janmabhoomi Temple at Ayodhya alike Somenath Temple in Gujarat before. Reconstructions of Kashi Vishwanath Temple expanding its periphery removing the Aurangzeb Mosque aside and same in Mathura in the next.
Article 30 of the Constitution gives linguistic and religious minorities the right to establish and run their own educational institutions. The institution must promote the interest of the minority community by promoting its religious tenets, philosophy, culture, language and literature and a considerable section of the minority must be benefited by the institution.
“Whilst strictest supervision can be imposed on majority institutions, the same cannot be done for minority ones. It stands to reason whether such a result was envisaged by the frame of the Constitution”. [Indian Constitutional Law by M P Jain pg 659].
Hindus must be given an equal opportunity to establish and administer educational institutions like others. There should be no discrimination on the basis of religion.
It is a different matter that the Indian Constitution does not define the word ‘Minority’.
The Congress would not like to lose Hindu votes and can be expected to support the proposed legislative changes in the Rajya Sabha.
Art. 48 of Indian Constitution says, “Organisation of agriculture and animal husbandry The State shall endeavour to organise agriculture and animal husbandry on modern and scientific lines and shall, in particular, take steps for preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter, of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle”.
The Cow is admired as God in India. Hindu sentiment relates with cows as its culture and tradition. The agro-economy, milk based health & nutrition, pancha gavya (cow milk, curd, ghee, urine and dung) therapy for treatment of various common and acute diseases and preservation the nature with blissful cows are highly essential for the advancement of India in multi dimensions.
Hindus have demanding ban on cow slaughter as their primary demand. So, Govt of India must issue a central ordinance to ban on cow slaughter in all states on India as a mandate.
Under the Constitution scheduled castes who convert to Christianity cannot avail of benefits available to SC. However, this is not the case for Scheduled Tribes. As a result ST’s have been converted in large numbers in Nagaland, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and states in the Hindi heartland with high tribal population.
This anomaly needs to be removed.
Senior journalist Sandhya Jain wrote, “The UPA Government has quietly relaxed restrictions on the entry and stay of foreign missionaries coming to the country. These restrictions were enforced on the recommendations of the Niyogi Commission, appointed to investigate the activities of missionaries in
Madhya Pradesh, which submitted its report to the Union Government in 1956. The missionary visa is issued to those going to India “for a religious purpose”. The creation of a special category of visa for missionaries may legitimately be considered as “official patronage for Christian conversions in India.” Status pre 2012 needs to be restored.
And all types of Christian conversion under the camouflage of social services must be stopped immediately.
The judgement clearly lays down that no loudspeakers shall be used between 10 pm and 6 am.
Further it specifies decibel levels when loud speaker or public address system is used.
Anyone living close to a mosque will know that loudspeaker volumes during Azaan starting about 5.30 am violate the 2005 Supreme Court order five times a day. It disturbs the neighbourhood, increases noise pollution and has contributed to worsening Hindu / Muslim relations.
State Governments must promote communal harmony by ensuring 2005 SC order to be followed in letter and spirit.
A perusal of top fifteen donors to NGO’s under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act show that the largest donors are consistently Church organizations from U.S. and Europe.
Has the Government of India formally invited them to invest in India OR do they see the West as the sole custodian of poverty alleviation, education and health?
By their inherent nature Indian religions, unlike Christianity and Islam, do not have a ‘exclusivist belief system’. These donors are part of an ‘international institutional conversion war machine’, MNCs of the
Religious variety as articulated by ex IITianSankrant Sanu. http://www.rediff.com/news/column/commercial-mncs-are-checked-so-why-not-religious-mncs/20141219.htm
Thus, India needs the equivalent of a Foreign Investment Promotion Board i.e. Religious/Charity Investment Board that evaluates proposals by foreign religious and charitable organizations whatever and however good the cause is.
These refugees from West Pakistan (mostly Hindus and Sikhs belonging to Schedules Castes) who crossed over to J&K after 1944 but before 1954 were denied Permanent Resident Certificates. They cannot apply for jobs and their children can’t get higher education in the State.
Those in Kashmir Valley who oppose this humanitarian deed on the premise it would change demographics should be told of how the Valley has, since the 1950’s, manipulated the number of assembly seats and population numbers to ensure control over the State.
This has changed demographics significantly in Assam, West Bengal and is doing so in other parts of the country. Public Interest Litigation filed in the Supreme Court has proved ineffective.
Increase in India’s Muslim population due to presence of Bangladeshis (estimated illegal immigrants at least 1.5 crs) has caused disquiet amongst the followers of Dharma. The government must stop infiltration on a war footing and find ways to identify / disfranchise existing immigrants.
Such ploy of Population Jihad, Infiltration Jihad, Land Jihad to materialize an ultimate Jihad in India to make India under Islamic State. The home grown Jihad outfits and Madrasha based fundamentalism are grievous threat to India’s peace loving citizens. Govt. of India must take strongest steps to stopl Jihad in Inda and protects its people from the onslaught of Jihad and Islamic State.
Unless the Hindu community is given equal human rights it will not be able to withstand the combined onslaught of Wahhabism and Evangelism. As a consequence Bharat could become the next battleground between two powerful and violent religions just likeSudan, Nigeria, Yugoslavia or Malaku islands of Indonesia did.
