Devout Hindus come together at Hindu Rashtra-jagruti Sabha organized at Khopoli !
Khopoli (Dist Raigad) : In the last 8 years, action has been taken on various issues like the Court’s decision on the construction of Ram Mandir, Article 370, triple ‘talaq’, etc. Declaring India as a Hindu Nation is, however, a challenge for all Hindus, pro-Hindu organisations, and devout Hindu leaders. Hindus will become a minority population by the year 2061. Hindus are already in minority on this earth. Our one generation made sacrifices; therefore, we could live in a free India. Even today, there is a similar situation wherein Hindus’ existence would be under threat if Hindus wouldn’t sacrifice for India to be a Hindu Nation. The power of unity is required for creating a Hindu Nation. All Hindus and the pro-Hindu organisations should unite, keeping aside their independent identity and lawfully fight for the cause, was an appeal made by Sanatan Sanstha’s ‘Dharmapracharak’ Abhay Vartak while addressing Hindu Rashtra-jagruti Sabha organized by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) at Samarth-Krupa Green House Hall, near old Bombay-Poona highway at Khopoli. He was speaking on the topic ‘The need to abide by Dharma for establishing Hindu Rashtra’. Mr Prasad Vadake of HJS also spoke on the topic of ‘The need for Hindu Rashtra and contribution necessary to achieve this goal. The ‘sabha’ was attended by 180 devout Hindus including Saints and other dignitaries. Taking inspiration from this ‘sabha’, the attending devout Hindus showed interest in holding a similar ‘sabha’ at different villages near Khopoli.
The ‘sabha’ was started with the blowing of conch; followed by the lighting of a lamp by H. Bh. Pa Ramdasbhai Patil and the garlanding of the picture frame of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj on the stage; besides, ‘Veda-mantras’ were also recited. After welcoming Saints and dignitaries attending the ‘sabha’, Mr Sagar Chopdar, HJS-district coordinator for Mumbai, Thane, Raigad, and Palghar districts explained various activities extensively undertaken by HJS all over the country. The ‘sabha’ was concluded with taking an oath of the establishment of Hindu Rashtra. Milind Poshe and Sunil Kadam of HJS did compeering of the ‘sabha’.
