MUMBAI: Hindu Janjag ruti Samiti, the sister outfit of the Sanatan Sanstha, whose activists were arrested for the murders of rationalists Dr Narendra Dabholkar and Govind Pansare, will organise a convention in Goa to work towards declaring India a Hindu nation.
The fifth convention will be held at Ramnathi between June 19 and 25. Participants from Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Bangladesh and more than 200 Hindu outfits are likely to attend it, said a member of the samiti.
According to the samiti, “There are 157 Christian nations, 52 Muslim nations, 12 Buddhist nations and a Jew nation, but not a single nation for Hindus.”
Blaming I ndia’s secular nature f or t he “pli ght of Hindus”, it insisted the Hindu nation be religion-based.
Arvind Pansare, the samiti’s spokesperson, said the implementation of Hindu traditions, i ncluding banning of cow slaughter, preventing conversions and preserving temple traditions will gain momentum.
The samiti has also expressed discontent over the BJP tying up with the PDP in Kashmir.
It said that the PDP is a known supporter of separatists. The BJP’s tie- up with the party could dim the hopes of Kashmiri Pandits to return to their home state.
