Nagpur: A demand is being made by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) along with other organizations to withdraw the proposed anti-Hindu Acts viz. 'Black Magic Act' and Act for taking over management of temples. In the background of the budgetary session of the State Assembly held at Nagpur, programs like Maha-aartis, demonstrations and token hunger strike have been organized.
HJS has been organizing agitations in various districts in the State in the form of rallies, signature campaigns, giving representations etc. against the anti-Hindu Acts. Besides, agitations have been conducted against such Acts in Mumbai. If the Government does not change their stand on the said anti-Hindu Acts, HJS has planned to intensify the agitations.
In case of 'temple take-over' Act, the State Government has excluded mosques, dargahs, madarsas and churches from the purview of the said Act and is scheming to take over only temples belonging to Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Parsis and Buddhists. Both the proposed Acts are an assault on Hindu Dharma. The other proposed Act for eradication of Blind Faith, although title wise sounds good, but the clauses of the Act, bring restrictions on religious rituals, holy books, worship, customs and traditions, of the Hindus, especially the 13 th clause. This clause jeopardizes the freedom to people conferred by the Indian Constitution to follow any religion. As it is, the Govt. is not able to manage temples which they have taken over earlier; which is evident from the malpractices observed in managing Sree Siddhivinayak temple and other temples. The motive of the Govt. is quite clear; it wants to gain control over the funds of the temples. HJS has therefore, appealed to all Hindus to fight against such Acts.
(Congratulations to the Hindus for fighting against those who assault the Hindu Dharma. All Hindus should unite to combat assault on their Dharma. – Editor)
