Hindu orgs stage ‘Hindu Rashtra Jagruti Andolan’ against Maharashtra Pollution Control Board
Sangli : Maharashtra Pollution Control Board Sound ignores the pollution caused by loudspeakers on mosques 5 times in a day, but raises hue and cry on Hindu festivals. Also by publishing reports that tarnish Hindu festivals, the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board discriminates against the Hindus.
Mr Santosh Desai of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) demanded that the Board must explain its standpoint regarding loudspeakers that blare sound 365 days. He was addressing the ‘Hindu Rashtra Jagruti Andolan’ organised by Hindu organisations. This agitation was held at the Maruti Chowk in Sangli (Maharashtra). The agitating Hindus also demanded that the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board officials be dismissed.
Adv Priti Patil of the Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad also addressed the gathering. She demanded that the NIA (National Investigation Agency) should be handed the investigation into murders of Hindus across the nation, and that the guilty should be given capital punishment.
BJP Cultural Cell Pradesh Vice-president Mr Omkar Shukla said that the Pollution Control Board appears to be working against Hindu festivals only. Hindu society will not tolerate this hence forth.
Mr Pruthviraj Pawar, BJP Pradesh Secretary said that ‘present situation is very difficult. A Pakistani youth was arrested in Rajasthan for infiltrating with the intent of killing Nupur Sharma. Hence Hindus should awaken now’.
Samarth devotee Mr Shekhar Kodolikar said that, ‘Hindus had united during Chhatrapti Shivaji Maharaja’s period and fought for ‘Swarajya’. Similar unity seems to be missing today. Hindus have lost their interest in Dharma and thoughts related to Dharma. Hindus are being killed because they are not united. If Hindus start loving their Dharma and unite, then they can easily put an end to these killings’.
BJP’s Mr Uday Mule, Mr Srikant Shinde, Mr Avinash Mohite, Mr Balasaheb Patil, Mr Ajitkumar Kale, Mrs Madhuri Vasgadekar, Mr Vitthal Mugalkhod, along with HJS activists participated in the agitation.
