HJS submits representation to Tehsildar at Guhagar
Guhagar (Ratnagiri, Maharashtra) : The Government is trying to enact the so-called anti-superstitions Bill under the influence of few atheists’ organisations that do not believe in God or Dharma and are associated with naxalite movement. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has made a demand that the proposed anti-superstitions Act imposing ban on religious matters should be quashed permanently. A representation for the same was submitted to Tehsildar, Jeevan Kamble. H.B.P. Mohan sheth Sansare, Mr. Prashant Shirgaonkar, former Vice – President of Zilha Parishad, Mr. Mangesh Pawar of Shiv Sena, Mr. Gajanan Dixit of VHP, former Sarpanch of Guhagar, Mr. Gajanan Velhal and Satish Shetye, HJS activist, Mr. Ravindra Sansare, Sanatan Sanstha’s Dr. Shrikrushna Biwalkar, Mr. Gurunath Karekar and Baba Devalekar etc. devout Hindus and pro-Hindu activists were present on the occasion.
It has been mentioned in the representation that ‘Although it is shown that the anti-superstitions Act is being passed for eradication of human sacrifice and undesired customs; it is observed on undertaking detailed study of the Bill that many clauses from the said Act would impose ban on religious matters. Under the existing Acts for handling offences related to superstitions, many offenders have been sentenced to life imprisonment and even death. Police have also opined that the existing laws are adequate. As per police records, crimes committed under the name of superstitions are far less compared to other crimes. What is the need for a new Act when the existing laws are being implemented? All Warakari, religious organisations, institutions and various Sects strongly oppose the proposed Act.’
