Devgad : At present, fanatics are demanding that every food item be deemed Halal according to Islam, i.e. ‘halal certified’. This demand is not limited to meat but is also being forced upon products like grains, fruits, cosmetics, medicines etc. Due to this ‘halal’ economy, the minority fanatics are running a kind of dictatorship over the majority. Therefore, the Devgad Taluka Suvarnakar Sanghatan has demanded that the ‘halal certificate’ system based on religion in a secular India should be stopped immediately. In this regard, the office bearers of Taluka Suvarnakar Sanghatan submitted a Memorandum to the Home Minister, Secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Minister of Commerce and Industry and other secretaries through the Tehsildar of Devgad, Maruti Nana Kamble. The President of the Suvarnakar Sanghatan, Shri. Mahesh Ghare, Vice President Shri. Vivek Mondkar, Joint Secretary Shri. Sandeep Talwadekar, goldsmiths Shri. Sandeep Kulkarni, Shri. Anand Mondkar, Shri. Ashok Karangutkar were a part of the delegation.
Opinions expressed by the office bearers of Suvarnakar Sanghatan
1. Mr. Mahesh Ghare, President, Suvarnakar Sanghatana – It is the need of the hour that Hindus unite. Hindus need to wake up. If this does not happen, then in a few years Hindus will become a minority. I am involved in such work.
2. Mr. Vivek Mondkar, Vice President, Suvarnakar Sanghatan – I was pleased to participate in submitting this memorandum. This will create a lot of awareness in the society. I am always ready to participate in such Dharmik activities.
3. Mr. Sandeep Talwadekar, Joint Secretary, Suvarnakar Sanghatan – It is very necessary for Hindus to wake up for Dharmakarya. It takes time to thwart such conspiracies. This awareness campaign is going on due to Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti. I am involved in this sacred task.
4. Mr. Sandeep Kulkarni, goldsmith – It is very important to spread the word. For this, all Hindus must unite. I will try to create more and more awareness.
