Upasana Singh | HENB | Indore | Jan 1, 2023:: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) expressed its clear stand to fight religious dogmatism- seen through ‘Jihadi extremism and evangelist propaganda’ and to stop discrimination against Hindus through various propensities in running Sharia law and Wakf Board or not implementing the Uniform civil code.
The 3-day meeting of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Central Board of Trustees and Governing Council concluded here on Sunday with a resolution to “defeat religious dogmatism” and demands to control madrasas and missionary schools.
Addressing a press conference, VHP Working President Alok Kumar said that a comprehensive policy is needed at the global level against “the toxic effects of religious dogmatism”.
“We will not allow any part of India to become Dar-ul-Islam. VHP, Bajrang Dal, Durga Vahini, along with revered saints and thinkers of the society, have been fighting it steadfastly. We will speed up this work,” he said.
Kumar said that at present, the VHP is working in 30 countries, out of which representatives from 24 had come for the International Coordination Meeting in Mumbai at the end of December.
“Respect for Hinduism is increasing all over the world; now we will promote this positive development and connect people with Hindu values of integral humanism. VHP will work with this goal to solve the problems of Hindus wherever they are…,” he said.
He said as VHP completes 60 years in 2024, the meet discussed an action plan to make students across the world refined and reverent.
Resolution “Religious Dogmatism – Its Ill-Effects and Solution”, passed at the meeting, said that the “religious radicalism and dogmatism of the desert traditions remains a challenge for the whole world even today. These radicals are also responsible for the terrorist attacks happening here and there in the world every day…”
It also alleged that a large section of Christian missionaries are engaged in the “agenda of engineering social enmity, fostering terror, and converting people through the tactics of force, fraud and allurement” and warned religious radicalism would prove to be a suicidal path for the Christian and the Muslim communities.
The VHP appealed to all sections not to patronise “anti-national tendencies” and people to play their role against “religious dogmatism and separatist leadership and cheering open-minded leadership that takes the society towards harmony and development”.
The Board of Trustees also appealed to the Central and the state governments to control madrassas and missionary schools teaching “exclusivism, extremism and separatism”.
Seeking stringent laws to prevent illegal conversions, it also demanded implementation of the Uniform Civil Code.
In a statement the VHP Central committee has also urged, Places of Pilgrimage should be developed as per Shraddhaa (esteem) and Astha (faith), not as tourist centres.
Vishva Hindu Parishad identifies with the concerns of the Jain Samaj to protect the sacrosanct nature of the timeless Siddha Kshetras of Parshwanath Parvat and Teerthraj Sammed Shikhar! Issuing a press statement, the Central Working President of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), Advocate Shri Alok Kumar said today that Vishva Hindu Parishad is determined and striving to protect, preserve and promote the sanctity of all the pilgrimage sites in Bharat. We are of the clear opinion that no ‘pilgrimage’ site should be converted into a ‘tourist’ destination.
He said that we are constantly making efforts that every state government and the central government should form an independent ‘Pilgrimage Ministry’, which would develop pilgrimage sites according to the Shraddha (esteem) and Aasthaa (faith or trust in a divine entity) of the followers.
VHP urges the Central Government and the State Government of Jharkhand to ensure that:
1. The entire Siddha Kshetra Parshwanath Parvat is declared a holy area. There should not be any such activity which would hurt the Jain Aasthaa. Non-vegetarian food (flesh eating) and SUD (substance use disorder / drug addiction), cannot be allowed in any way within the periphery of this pilgrimage area.
2. An independent Ministry of Pilgrimage should be set up in Jharkhand without delay, so that the development of Siddha Kshetra Parshwanath Parvat as well as all the pilgrimage sites in the state could be ensured according to the Shraddha and Astha of the followers.
3. Necessary amendments should be made in the related notifications so that the Siddha Kshetras Parshwanath Parvat and Tirtharaj Sammed Shikhar are developed as ‘Teerth Kshetras’ and not turned into ‘tourist’ hubs.
The Central Working President of Vishva Hindu Parishad assured that the VHP, along with the representatives of the Jain Samaj, would make meaningful efforts to take necessary action in this direction.
