If this situation continues, we will be compelled to use all our might to combat it. – Narayan Rathwad
Had Shivaji Maharaj lived longer ‘Hindavi Swarajya’ would have been established all over India. Hindus are still in a slumber because in reality the condition of Kashmir should have kindled wrath in all Hindus from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. The Hindus of today are feeble cowards. If this situation continues, in future, we will have to face it with all our strength. These sentiments were expressed by the senior journalist, Shri. Narayan Rathwad. He also added that people of other religion are by now totally convinced that atrocities can be committed only on Hindus.
He also said, "Today’s politicians are trying to pamper people of other religions, considering them as potential voters. What is shameful however is that these very voters decide who their rulers will be. Praising the activities of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Shri. Rathwad expressed his willingness to participate in them.
Each and every Hindu should participate in the mission of propagating Hinduism – Dr. Pandurang Marathe
It is imperative that everyone should participate in this mission, was the view expressed by Sanatan Sanstha’s North India Prasar In-charge, Dr. Pandurang Marathe. He also elaborated upon the innumerable atrocities committed on the Hindus of Kashmir and how hopeless our national rulers are.
It is the need of the hour for every Hindu to get out of his home for the sake of his religion, country and society – Vinayak Chari
He exclaimed how shameful it is to attend an exhibition on terrorism today, despite living in free India. It is quite obvious from a number of incidents that terrorism has reached our doorstep today. The number of madarssas in Goa is also growing. "Believers" are converting Hindus to Christianity. Hindus must wake up and fight this. Each and everyone of us need to get out of our homes for the sake of the Hindu religion, country and society. These were the key points emphasized by the coordinator of the Goa State branch of the Bajrang Dal, Shri. Vinayak Chari. He too praised the work of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
If we protect religion, it will protect us – Dr. Manoj Solanki
Only the one who protects religion is protected by it. Hence, each and everyone of us should participate in this religious mission, was the message given by the Goa State spokesperson of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Dr. Manoj Solanki during his address. He too elaborated on the atrocities on Hindus, the indifference of rulers in solving problems of Hindus, the significance of the FACT exhibition, etc. He also requested the audience to turn inwards after viewing the exhibition.
