President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Praveen Togadia has once again urged Hindus of the nation to unite and fight for their rights. He was speaking at 'Hindu Sammelan' (Hindu Conclave) organised by the VHP at Chhola Ground on Sunday.
Togadia claimed the Hindu population once dominated Asia. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and all other nearby regions were dominated by Hindu population. However, now Hindu population in these countries has dwindled, said Togadia. "I am afraid that 82 crore in India might reduce to mere 42 crore," he added.
He blamed 'love-jihad' as one of the reasons for the dwindling Hindu population in India.
Togadia also 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 on an empty stomach. He also told the gathering about a helpline, which he claimed, has more than 5,000 Hindu doctors ready all the time to help 'Hindu brethren'. "Any Hindu can contact this helpline for free medical consultation," said Togadia.
Earlier, Sant Balakdas talked about 'Ghar Wapsi' (re-conversion) programme and need for cow protection.
This programme was one in the series of five conclaves to be organised by VHP which is celebrating its golden jubilee year.
