Controversial PAMPHLETS exhorting Hindus to make Hindu sammelans a success and watch out ‘intruders in their locality’ like mechanic, driver, scrap dealer and beggar etc belonging to a particular community, are being distributed openly.
One of the pamphlets vehemently criticises conversion saying, “if a Hindu man is converted it means increase of one enemy. If a Hindu woman is converted it means increase of several enemies to the country.”
Giving graphic details of “Ghatata Hindu mitata Bharat”, the two-page pamphlet printed in the name of Shree Guruji Janamshatabdi Samaroh without printer’s name, also quotes Swami Vivekanand to buttress a specific view. The pamphlet quotes Vivekanand “when a Hindu is converted not only Hindu community loses its one member but also it has one more enemy to it”.
Starting with the slogan below undivided India’s map- ‘Hindu jaagega desh jaagega’- the pamphlet says at the time of Independence there were 10 Hindus against one Muslim but now the number of Hindus had been reduced to four.
In nine States in the country Hindus are reduced to minority. In states like Tripura, Mizoram, Nagaland wearing saffron colour rob and aarati were prohibited. Several Hindu girls were lured by members of two particular communities. Every month thousands of cows were slaughtered.
The pamphlet underlines conversion, intrusion from Bangladesh, growing terrorism menace, certain leaders’ attempt to get stalled execution of capital punishment to Mohd Afzal, cultural attack through TV etc.
But the pamphlet also offers solutions. Hindu Jagao (unity among Hindus); Hindu bachao (check on conversion); Hindu barhao (breaking hum do hamare do tradition), and pursuing converted to re-embrace Hinduism; and Hindu sambhalo (watch out if …mechanic, driver, scrap wallah, Faqueer, chudiwala etc. are trying to intrude your home).
Another pamphlet in the name of Shree Guruji Janamshatabdi Samaroh Samiti, Betul talks of Hindus being reduced to minority in 2061. The pamphlet by Narmadapur Vibhag Samiti underlines 3.5 lakh Kashmiri pandits’ deserting Jammu & Kashmir, intrusion of 3 crore Bangladeshis, Hindus population reduced to nil in 8,000 villages of West Bengal, marriage of 2.5 lakh hindu girls with members of a particular community etc.
When contacted Samiti state body member Vilas Gole said, until and unless he saw the pamphlets he would not comment on its content.
However, he added, pamphlets had been printed from different places with names of the particular place mentioned on it. There was no denying the fact about increase in population of minority communities and decline in Hindu population. Reports often came about Hindu girls being lured by minority community members for marriage, he said.
Complaint lodged with TT Nagar police
A GROUP of eminent citizens on Sunday lodged complaint against persons having brought out ‘communal’ pamphlets on the pretext of Hindu Sammelans. Syed Sajid Ali, L S Hardenia, Fr Anand Mutungal and Shailendra Shelly on Sunday visited T T Nagar police station and lodged a complaint against unknown persons, who have brought out the pamphlets in question. They stated that the text of pamphlets is such that it could lead to communal tension in the State and some communal incidents have already taken place in the State.
They further said that there was ample reason to believe that the pamphlets have been printed on behalf of the RSS. Furthermore, it was also objectionable that there was no print line in the pamphlets signifying the persons or outfits bringing out the pamphlets or the press, where they have been printed.
