Online discussions held in a program ‘Bindaas Bol’ on Sudarshan news channel on the resolve of demanding Hindu Rashtra during the Ganesh festival
Pune : Every family should pray to Shri Ganesh and make a resolve for establishing Hindu Rashtra. It is our collective spiritual practice as per the times. Once India is declared as a Hindu Rashtra, all problems faced by Hindus will be solved. Articles 26 to 30 have been incorporated in the Constitution conferring special rights to minorities wherein certain facilities have been extended such as imparting religious education, propagating their religion, and getting financial aid from the governments, etc. In 1976, the then Prime Minister Indira Gani added the word ‘secular’ to the Constitution due to which it became neutral to all sects/ religions. If the Constitution treats everyone as equal, why is there discrimination of minorities and the majority? If minorities are to be retained in this country, the Constitution cannot be secular and if the Constitution is secular, all facilities extended to the minorities should be withdrawn because they are Ultra vires of the Constitution, stated Mr. Ramesh Shinde, the national spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS).
In a program ‘Bindaas Bol’ conducted on the Sudarshan news channel, online discussions were held on the topic of ‘Pledge to establish Hindu Rashtra during Ganeshotsav’. Mr. Ramesh Shinde participated in this program. The program was hosted by Mr. Suresh Chavanke, the Chief Editor of the Sudarshan news channel. Mr. D. K. Dubey, an expert on the Indian Constitution also expressed his views on this program.
Other points presented by Mr. Ramesh Shinde
1. Hindus are referred to as terrorists at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Through the Gujarat riots of 2002 also, attempts are made to portray Hindus as terrorists. Muslim, Christian, British invaders came to India and tried to destroy Indian culture. They oppressed women and made them slaves, but Hindus did not try to eliminate any culture; therefore, we should oppose the misleading information spread about Hindu Dharma. When God is incarnating to establish Dharma, why are we keeping such an insular mentality?
2. Whenever Islam grows, jihad also rises. Pakistan and Bangladesh were formed from Hindustan. In 1990, Islam grew in Kashmir and all Hindus were displaced in one night. Presently, the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan. People were trying to run away from there by even hanging onto the planes. If we do not want to go through such a situation, we have to demand Hindu Rashtra. Hindu Rashtra is required to keep alive our culture, festivals, temples, etc.
The word ‘secular’ needs to be replaced with the word ‘Hindu’ in our Constitution! – D K Dubey, Indian Constitution expert
On 15th November 1948, Professor K. T. Shah had presented a proposal to include the word ‘secular’ in the Constitution. It was argued that after the partition into Bharat and Pakistan, India remains a country belonging to one religion. India is a Hindu Rashtra. The word ‘Secular’ cannot be added in the preamble of the Constitution. It is a confusing word. (Later, Indira Gandhi added this word ‘secular’ to the Constitution.) At that time, the ‘Hindu’ word should have been added to the Constitution but it was not done. As per the makers of the Constitution, India has been a Hindu Rashtra only. Now a bill has to be passed in the Parliament to replace the ‘secular’ word with the word ‘Hindu’. The definition of the word ‘Hindu’ has to be determined.
Once India is declared as a Hindu Rashtra, the politics of appeasement will stop. As stated earlier by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, whenever a person goes from one State to another, he/she will become a minority based on the language spoken in that State. This was the definition of minority meant by him. There is no need to define minorities based on religion.
