Upendra Bharti | HENB | Udupi | Nov 26, 2017:: While in a mammoth gathering of ‘Virat Hindu Samajotsava’ as the culmination of the three-day (24-25-26 Nov) Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Dharma Sansad in Udupi, the international working President of VHP, Dr Pravin Togadia has given the clarion of call to complete it very soon, the VHP General Secretary, Dr Surndra Jain surfaced the schedule of Ram Temple construction in the same event here on Sunday. More importantly, one of the highest Hindu seers, Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji of Pejavara Math also expressed his views to complete the Ayodhya Ramjanmabhoomi Temple by 2019.
Addressing the gathering, VHP international working president Pravin Togadia referred to the Mumbai terror attacks that took place this day nine years ago, and said that while Kasab who was involved in the attacks was hanged, his ‘father’ (mastermind Hafiz Saeed) still roams free in Pakistan. “We must finish Pakistan and eliminates every trace of its existence from world map,” he warned. He also recalled the brave police officers, particularly Tukaram, who fought against the terrorists and sacrificed their lives.
Slamming filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bansali over his controversial movie ‘Padmavati’ that has evoked intense protests, he said, “It is due to the sacrifices of Amma Padmini that I am here. If Sanjay Leela Bansali has made a movie on Padmavati, but if he has guts, let him do one the Prophet too.”
He further said, “Hindus are majority in this nation. We do not need any special privileges. We do not want politics. Our only aim is to protect the Hindus. The first Hindu Sansad was held in Udupi, and it is from here that the Ram Mandir movement started and gained momentum. We do not aspire to become MPs or Tatas and Birlas. Now in this Dharma Sansad in Udupi, we again demand to build Ram Mandir without delay”.
“There is an idol of Lord Rama in Ramjanmabhoomi. Does anyone has the power or guts to remove that idol or build anything other than temple there?” he asked, to which the crowd responded with a loud ‘no!’
“Hindu Samaj used to live with unity and dignity, but then over the years it decreased. One crore Hindus have no place to live. Crores of youths in the nation are unemployed, lacs of farmers are committing suicide as they are unable to pay back loans. Farmers are not asking for money, but what they deserve for their hardwork.
“We want Ram Mandir and Ram Rajya without dealy”, Pravin Togadia declared. Earlier. Togadia clarified that Ram Rajya and Hindu Rashtra were same.
He called upon the people to build a nation where Hindu youths have jobs, farmers are free of loans and a nation free of untouchability. He also spoke of the Parivar Mitra plan where every Hindu of upper caste will make friendship with a person from a schedule caste.
He asked the crowd to take a pledge to become a true, enlightened, active and devout Hindu.
Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji in his address stressed on the importance of harmony in society and said, “Sri Krishna’s message was that one does not become great because of caste or creed, but through devotion and righteous character. India shoud become an untouchability-free nation where everyone is treated equally.
“I initiated a movement to end untouchability and it has now spread everywhere. Every individual’s mantra should be to live with harmony and foster equality. Being born as Hindus on this soil, we should respond to another person’s woes,” he added.
Seeking to clarify his earlier comment on the Constitution which led to protests, the veteran Pejavara seer said, “The privilege available for minorities should be accessible to the majority too. I do not say we should end reservation, but some people have twisted my words out of context. Some of the educational facilities available for minorities are deprived to Dalits. The government should ensure that Dalits too have access to them. That is why I said the Constitution should be amended, but only if Dalits and minorities are in agreement of the amendment and get equal privileges.”
He said that just as churches and mosques have freedom, the government should give keep away from controlling temples and maths.
He also questioned CM Siddaramaiah on the delay in passing anti-cow slaughter bill. “If the CM is a follower of Basavanna, he should pass the bill without any delay,” he said.
“I will not have peace till Ram Mandir is built. Within one year we will start the construction and by 2019 it should be ready,” Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji said.
VHP leader Gopalji spoke on issues like love Jihad and conversion.
To the disappointment of the crowd, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath who was supposed to participate in the event, cancelled his visit due to Gujarat election campaign. Earlier, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living changed his mind not to attend Dharma Sansad over a Ram Mandir remark of RSS Chief from the stage of Dharma Sansad. RSS Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat told that the Hindu Samaj had no need of mediation to start the temple work in Ayodhya.
RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat raked up the issue stating that only a Ram temple would come up at the site without any mediation. “The stones will be used to build only a Ram temple. No other construction would come up at that site,” he had said on the inaugural day of the Dharma Sansad.
In the three-day (24-25-26 Nov) VHP Dharma Sansad in Udupi, VHP passed four resolutions as Resolution 1 for Untouchibility free Hindu society; Resolution 2 for Freeing Hindu Temples from Govt clutches; Resolution 3 for National Ban on Cow Slaughter and Resolution 4 for Giving Rights of Religious Minorities to Hindu Majorities.
At the time of discourses, Shankaracharya of Sumeru Peeth of Kashi, Swami Narendrananda pledged for Uniform Civil Code in the country for all citizens. Swami Krishnananda Saraswati of Kerala declared a “Ramrajya Rathayatra” from Ayodhya on coming Mahashivrathri to reach Rameshwaram on next Ramnavami and back to Ayodhya taking a time of 14 months.
The International Joint Secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Dr Surendra Kumar Jain, said that Ram temple construction would begin next year. Jain was speaking at the Dharma Sansad in Karnataka where others also echoed his views.
“Ram temple construction will begin on October 18, 2018. Next Dharma Sansad will be held in Ayodhya,” Dr Jain said.
To culminate the Dharma Sansad 2017, the entire temple town of Udupi was turned as a sea of saffron as the ‘Shobha Yatra’ for the Virat Hindu Samajotsava began on a grand note here on Sunday November 26 morning.
Thousands of Hindu people dressed in saffron marched in a very disciplined way through the streets of Udupi from Jodukatte to the venue of Dharma Sansad. Remarkably a large of women participated in the procession exhibiting their cultural richness and traditional performances.
