Dharana agitation by activists of several political parties and organizations in Ratnagiri against ban on website of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti
Ratnagiri (Maharashtra) : Shiv Sena MLA Mr. Rajan Salvi warned that Hindus will come on road if the government does not immediately lift the ban on the website of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti. He was addressing the gathering at Dharana agitation organized by Hindu Janjagruti Samiti to oppose the ban ordered by government on its website www.Hindujagruti.org and face book page ‘http/www.facebook.com/Hindujagruti’. He further said, “I am witness to the work carried out by Hindu Janjagruti Samiti since last several years. Hindu Janjagruti Samiti is a social and nationalistic organization. Wherever there is an injustice on Hindus, this organization fights against it. The government has banned the website of Samiti for purported provocative writing posted on its website during riots in Assam. The government should take strict action against Muslim communal forces responsible for riots in Assam and Mumbai, and also desecration of Martyrs’ Memorial in Mumbai.”
The above Dharana agitation was held opposite the office of Collector Ratnagiri between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Around 125 activists of various political parties and organizations attended the same despite rainy season.
The attendees included Jillha Pramukh of Shiv Sena, Up-Shahar Pramukh, City Organizer of Shiv Sena Riksha Sangathana, District President, Taluka President of Bharatiya Janata Party, Jillha Parishad members, Chairman of Education and Finance committee of Jillha Parishad, members of Khed Panchayat Samiti, Deputy Chairman of Ratnagiri Panchayat Samiti, Jillha Mahamantri and Jillha Mantri of Bharat Svabhiman Trust, and activists of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti and Sanatan Sanstha. After the agitation programme, an appeal in writing to lift the ban on website was submitted to the Collector Mr. Rajiv Jadhav.
Attempt by Govt. to smother the voice of Hindus ! – Mr. Sanjay Joshi, HJS
“The ban on website of Samiti is nothing but attack on freedom of thoughts enshrined in Constitution of Bharat. The congress government has imposed the ban to smother the voice of Hindus. The ‘Cyber Crime Department’ has taken immediate action to ban the website. But the ‘Cyber Crime Department’ has not taken any action on several complaints of regular practice of desecration of idols of Hindu Deities. Hindus will not tolerate such injustice henceforth.”
Vote for the government which will have respect for the Hindu culture ! – Mr. Shashikant Chavan, Jillha Pramukh, Shiv Sena
“The government has banned the Samiti’s website today, it may ban the organization itself tomorrow. Hence Hindus must unite against this unjustified ban. Let us decide to vote for the government which will have respect for the Hindu culture.”
