‘Contact me immediately if you come across anybody selling plastic flags’ – Senior Police Inspector, Malad

Mumbai (Maharashtra): A notice has been taken out jointly by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and the ‘Malad West Cooperative Housing Society Residents Welfare Association’. It has been signed by a senior police inspector attached to Malad Police Station. The notice says that it is a punishable crime to insult or abuse the National Flag in any manner and legal action can be taken against the concerned. Mr. Rathod, the senior police inspector at Malad Police Station and Mr. Ashok Patel of Shiv Sena have taken the responsibility of circulating the notice to all cooperative housing societies and to display it at various prime locations.

 Mr. Rathod has also given his cell phone number with the assurance that he will order the police station to take immediate action to stop the sale of plastic flags and will also confiscate such flags, if he is informed. The HJS delegation has offered their gratitude to Mr. Rathod and Mr. Patel and have expressed their appreciation for their prompt cooperation.

A Lecture and a Stimulating Quiz

Thane (Maharashtra): Sanatan Sanstha organised a lecture on ‘Protection of the Nation’ and quiz program for the students of 7th to 10th standards at Shrirang Vidyalaya in Thane. About 400 students took part in the same. There were feedbacks received from the students that now they know about how to avoid denigration of the National Flag, importance of chanting the Kuldevata (family deity)’s name. They assured that they would not use plastic flags and would even stop shopkeepers from selling such plastic flags.

Teachers’ feedback
Mr. Nitin Chavan:
This program is helpful to awaken respect among students towards the Nation. The efforts of the organisation to inculcate moral values in students are truly commendable.
Mrs. Snehal Prabhune: We have learnt about how to pay respect to the National Flag and also of the need to train oneself in self- defence in the present times.

HJS also submitted a representation for the prevention of denigration of the National Flag to the Tehsildar at Yeotmal and Assistant Police Inspector Mr. Mainkar at Savda (Dist. Jalgaon).
