Sanpada (Navi Mumbai) : On 8th September, demonstrations were staged under aegis of ‘Rashtriya Hindu Andolan (RHA)’ to protest against supporters of naxalites and to oppose accusations made against ‘Hindutvavadi’ organizations. One policeman called an activist of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) while demonstrations were going on and started making personal inquiry. He tried to pressurize the activist and dissuade him from participating in demonstrations.
HJS obtained all necessary permissions as usual for staging demonstrations and started demonstrations at Sanpada. 15 persons participated in demonstrations. Soon after starting demonstrations, a squad of 15-20 policemen reached the venue in their vehicles; few were in uniform and few in plain clothes. Police conducted inquiry of an activist. Given below is conversation which took place between the activist of HJS and police.
Police : When did you join Sanatan ?
HJS Activist : This is ‘Rashtriya Hindu Andolan’ and is not held by Sanatan.
Police : But you are supporting Sanatan.
Activist : We have come here to protest against attacks on pro-Hindu organizations and Sanatan Sanstha. Considering Sanatan’s activities, we think supporting Sanatan is right.
Police : Why don’t you use Sanatan’s flag ?
Activist : There is nothing like Sanatan’s flag. This is ‘Rashtriya Hindu Andolan’ and we use this saffron flag representing ‘Hindutva’.
Police : Do you have any job?
Activist : Yes, I am working in a private organization. We devote our time to activities related to Dharma after attending to our work.
Police : Leave all this and pay attention to your work. Else it will be like the saying that fresh grass also gets burnt along with hay.
Activist : I am ready to bear anything if working for Dharma is a crime. (Such devout activist is the strength of Hindu Rashtra ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
Police : Ok, we shall meet again.
