Politicians should be reminded of the tradition of Bhakta Prahlad – National ‘keertankar’ Charudatta Aphale
HJS members agitating against Anti-Superstitions Act; Mr. Aphale in the inset;
Rambaug (Alibaug, Maharashtra): It is our misfortune and matter of shame that we have to stage demonstrations like this to express our feelings in front of the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The Government has become so thick-skinned that it is not realizing our feelings. All these politicians show their horoscope when they have to file nomination form to contest elections and perform various religious acts for favourable outcome; then why the same people are against common man’s performing such religious ceremonies? A demon like Hiranyakashyapu takes penance but forbids others from doing so because he did not want others to be greater than him. These politicians are following the tradition of demons and we have to follow the tradition of Bhakta Prahlad. The above guidance was given by National ‘keertankar’ Charudatta Aphale during the demonstrations organized by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) at Rambaug against the proposed anti-superstitions Act. This is certainly a movement of the people which does not belong to any organization or party but the devotees have come together; therefore, one should join such movement as permitted by his capacity and capability to wake up the Government. Everybody should take part in this movement, appealed Mr. Aphale.
HJS activists like Mr. Jagannath Jambhale from Penn, Mr. Prakash Malondkar from Roha, Professor Suresh Purohit from Mahad and Mrs. Vishakha Athavale from Panvel expressed their views on the occasion. Different slogans were raised by devout Hindus, about 52 in number, against the proposed Act that included men as well as women. The demonstrations were organized by Mr. Sudhakar Padhye.
1. Mr. Vishwanath Punju Potdarbaba Soyagaonkar , a 75 years old person earlier staying at Malegaon now shifted to Panvel recited a verse titled ‘Uth jawana, dhuvuni kadha kalanka Bharatmate cha….’ and impressed upon the people, the need to unite.
2. Mr. Aphale learnt details about the proposed Act and assured that he would present the issue in his ‘keertans’.
3. Mr. Niranjan Waghmare, the security guard working at Akmal Nagari Sahakari Patasanstha requested for sending representation to him for signing.
