Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president, Praveen Togadia speaking at the Hindu Conclave organised by the VHP urged Hindus in India to unite at Chhola ground on Sunday.
Togadia said that Hindu population once dominated Asia. They were found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and all other nearby regions but now their population in these countries have dwindled. "I am afraid that 82 crores in India may get reduced to mere 42 crores," said Togadia.
He blamed love-jihad as one of the reasons for the dwindling Hindu population in India. He urged Hindus to unite and stand to fight for their rights.
Togadia then administered an 11-point oath to the gathering, urging them to stick to their cultural roots, work more on health, education and ensure that no Hindu sleeps empty stomach.
He also told them about Hindu health helpline. He told the gathering to note the helpline number 18602333666 which has more than 5000 Hindu doctors on call, who are ready round the clock. Any Hindu can contact this helpline for free medical consultation.
Earlier, Sant Balakdas talked about 'Ghar Wapsi' (re-conversion) programme and on cow protection.
This programme was one in the series of five conclaves to be organised by VHP that is celebrating its golden jubilee year. The golden jubilee celebration would conclude on Janmashtmi this year.
Railway crossing at Chhola that had been closed for the public was opened for this programme.
