B V Shiva Shankar | TNN | Bengaluru | Oct 28, 2018:: A pro-Hindu outfit, the Hindu Charter, has termed the Constitution anti-Hindu with its representatives on Sunday demanding that the Constitution be amended in favour of the majority community.
“The Constitution of India is not in favour of the majority community, it has been anti-Hindu. It is in favour of minorities. What we are demanding is that the Articles from 26 to 30 be amended so that the majority Hindus get equal rights in India,” said Kapil Misra, a New Delhi MLA who has been suspended from the Aam Admi Party and a representative of Hindu Charter, at a press conference.
The Hindu Charter is based on a private bill moved by the Union minister Satyapal Singh in the Lok Sabha in 2016, seeking equal rights to the Hindus. The bill seeks among other demands entitlement for the Hindus to manage temples, which are now under the control of endowment department in states, and rights to run educational institutions independently on the lines of the privileges given to minority communities.
The Hindu Charter demanded that the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FRCA) be repealed so that the funds flowing from foreign countries to the NGOs can be stopped. “NGOs such as Amnesty International are indulging in anti-national activities. They are using foreign funds to anti-social activities such as religious conversion. So we are seeking abolition of FCRA,” said Vivek Agnihotri, writer and filmmaker, who is among the Hindu Charter representatives.
Abrogation of Article 370 that gives special status to Jammu & Kashmir and trifurcation of that state into Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh, ban on beef export, establishment of Hindutva Samskruti Jeernodhara Nigam with a seed fund of Rs 10,000 crore to restore antient Hindu temples and heritage structure, providing equal opportunities to all Indian languages are among other demands of the Hindu Charter.
On the Sabarimala issue, the Hindu Charter representatives said the Centre must promulgate an ordinance against the Supreme Court’s verdict that allows menstruating women enter Swamy Ayyappa’s hill shrine.
