Spark of ‘Hindutva’ kindled in sabha with more than 950 devout Hindus’ active participation
Shiroli-Pulachi (Dist. Kolhapur) : There is restriction on displaying posters depicting a scene in which Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is shown while pulling out guts of Afzal Khan. Hindus are prevented from telling their brilliant history. What will we tell our future generation if we forget history ? It is now time to say it with pride and boldness that ‘I am a Hindu’, stated advocate Samir Patwardhan of Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad (HVP) and President of ‘Advocate Parishad’ during ‘Hindu Rashtra-jagruti Sabha (sabha)’ held on 3rd December at Shri Birdev Mandir.
Shri. Manoj Khadye, Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) for Gujarat, western Maharashtra and Konkan region, Dr. (Sou.) Shilpa Kothavale of Sanatan Sanstha also addressed more than 950 devout Hindus attending the ‘sabha’.
Invited dignitaries and devout Hindus first had ‘darshan’ of ‘Gram-devata’ Shri Biradev. The ‘sabha’ was compeered by Shri. Kiran Duse and Sou. Bhakti Miraje of HJS.
