Hindu Rashtra is the ‘antidote’ to anti-India propaganda, will be realised by 2025: HJS

Even as India hurtles down the path of democratic majoritarianism, the solution is an out and out theocratic state, say the organisers of the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Rashtra convention, that is currently being held in Goa at the Ramnathi temple in Ponda from June 12 to 18.

The Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS) national guide, Charudatta Pingale stated that many Islamic nations have come together to oppose India over the statements made by Nupur Sharma and Al Qaeda has directly threatened to attack India.  Announcing that India will be a Hindu Rashtra by 2025, organisers have clearly chosen a date that falls on the centennial formation day of the aggressive Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Citing these recent examples of a diplomatic backlash India faced from Muslim countries over BJP spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal's derogatory comments against Prophet Mohammed, the HJS said a 'Hindu Rashtra' was essential to give a befitting reply to such anti-India propaganda. News of this controversial convention was carried in The Goan and later in The Hindu and Deccan Herald newspapers.

He critiqued the fact that nobody questions those who deliberately insult the sentiments of Hindus by questioning the worship of Shiv linga as 'Fountain' or Hindu Guptanga (Shivlinga)'. "From this, it is clear why at least one nation of Hindus is needed in the world," Pingale argued.

Pingale was flanked at the press conference by Subhash Velingkar of the Goa Rajya Sanghachalak of 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' organisation, the national spokesperson of HJS Ramesh Shinde, and the spokesperson of the militant Sanatan Sanstha, Chetan Rajhans.

The torch bearers of the aggressive organisation, Sanatan Sanstha (SS) have been charge-sheeted in the assassination of journalist-activist, Gauri Lankesh (2017) and other rationalists like Narendra Dabholkar (2013), Govind Pansare (2015) and MM Kalburgi (2015). In fact, in a controversial statement in 2020, the HJS had even dubbed rationalist Narendra Dabholkare an “Urban Naxal”.

This conference is a regular feature in Ponda, Goa and leading functionaries of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have lent their support to these year after year.

This year, a unique feature is the a 'Hindu Rashtra Sansad' (Hindu Rashtra Assembly) at which experts on Parliamentary and Constitutional matters, model administration of temples and education policies will deliberate on these matters in a Hindu Rashtra. The Assembly will be held for three days during the convention. Efforts will be made at the convention to decide the policy for the functioning of the Hindu Rashtra, Pingale further said.

Interestingly, the press conference was held at Hubballi (Hubli) in Karnataka on Thursday, June 9. Here, the state spokesman of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti - Mohan Gowda, State Secretary of Sri Ram Sene Gangadhar Kulkarni and Sanathan Samsthe’s Vidula Haldipur - said that over 1,000 delegates from across the country will participate in the seven-day convention. Gowda announced that delegates from America, England, Hong Kong, Singapore, Nepal and other countries will also be participating in the convention. “The convention will also deliberate issues concerning Gyanvapi mosque in Kashi, Mathura Mukti Andolan, Places of Worship Act, the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits, the use of loudspeakers in mosques, hijab campaign, halal economy, among other issues,” he said.

Mohan Gowda launched a frontal attack at the statement of Maulana Mahmood Madani of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind had been reported to say that they will not allow any kind of meddling with the Shariat law on the pretext of Uniform Civil Code, adding that if Hindus did not like Muslims, they should leave the country. This was a highly condemnable, said Gowda, adding that Hindutva organisations will not remain silent.

Clearly HJS and the wider family are in sync with the policies adopted by the Modi 2.0 regime. Ms. Haldipur said that some positive developments such as abolition of Article 370 and the construction of Ram Mandir have happened due to pro-Hindu governments at the Centre and in the States, while attacks on Hindu processions and festivals have continued. “Even after 32 years of the massacre of Kashmiri Pandits, killings of Kashmiri Pandits have not stopped. The convention will deliberate on Hindu consolidation through awareness and strengthening the movement for Hindu Rashtra,” she said.

To a query on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on non-participation of the RSS in any further temple stirs, Gowda said that it was his individual opinion, but the Samiti will continue its efforts to get back temples that were forcibly converted into mosques.

To a query, Kulkarni said that Hindutva organisations will not tolerate being misused by people for the sake of them coming to power and irrespective of political support, the organisations will continue the agitation for Hindutva causes. If the BJP tried to use Hindutva organisations for its political benefits and disregard them after coming to power, the people will teach them a lesson in the next election, he said.
