- Local administration refuses permission at the last moment for demonstrations at Rajapur under the guise of maintaining law and order
- Code of conduct is applicable to only political parties during election period but police use such excuse against ‘Hindutvavadis’ to throttle their voice !
- Fanatic Muslim leaders and maulavis issue various ‘fatwas’ targeting Hindus and PM. Don’t they create law and order problems ?
- Police and Government administration, happy only to suppress ‘Hindutvavadis’, show futility of democracy and unavoidable need for Hindu Rashtra !
Ratnagiri : On 22nd January at Rajapur in the district, demonstrations were proposed to be staged under the aegis of ‘Rashtriya Hindu Andolan (RHA)’ in Jawahar Chowk. An application seeking permission was submitted to police and local administration but taking objection to the issue of attacks on Hindu Dharma proposed to be taken up in demonstrations and giving the excuse of implementation of Code of conduct for elections, the local administration refused permission at the last moment; in the name of maintenance of law and order. (Will police and local administration take similar stand if the demonstrations were organized by non-Hindus ? – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) Many Hindus had to therefore, go back from the venue. Many demonstrators expressed displeasure towards local administration for trying to stifle Hindus’ voice although they were trying to stage demonstrations in lawful manner, against injustice done by those who always create law and order problem.
Administrative officers evade granting permission
1. More than 25 demonstrations have been held successfully and in lawful manner in the district so far under aegis of RHA. Similarly, an application was given to the office of District Superintendent of Police at Rajapur.
2. Such permissions for holding demonstrations are granted by local police stations. An employee at Rajapur police station told over phone to HJS Coordinator that owing to implementation of election code of conduct for Zilha Parishada and Panchayat Samiti elections, such application should be given to zonal officer.
3. Accordingly, on 20th January, HJS volunteers went to office of zonal officer (Dy. Zonal officer and Dy. Zonal Magistrate) with the application. In the absence of main zonal officer, the application was submitted to another officer by the volunteers. He said, “The procedure of elections is taken care by Tehasildar; therefore, Tehasildar will grant permission. You apply to him.”
4. HJS volunteers then went to Tehasildar’s office with the application. An officer accepted the application and assured them of conveying decision. It was later informed by Tehasildar’s office in the evening that under clause 37 (1), there was prohibition and the zonal officer could only grant permission. On 21st January, HJS volunteers requested for a written reply to their application.
It is deplorable that permission for Hindus’ lawful demonstrations, proposed to be held for their rights, was declined only to avoid displeasure amongst fanatics !
Objection to issues related to attacks on Hindu Dharma
The main demands mentioned in the application were – Atrocities against Kashmiri Hindus should be termed as genocide and separate part ‘Panun Kashmir’ should be given to them; fanatics with their mastermind should be immediately arrested for staging riots at Malkapur (Dist. Buldhana) withdrawing cases filed against innocent Hindus; children of infiltrating Rohingya Muslims should not be given admission in schools in Telangana and Rohingya Muslims should be driven out of the country. The local administration took objection to these issues. ‘The demands were against followers of other religion. Election Code of conduct was implemented and such demonstrations might lead to law and order problem. Considering opinion of local police, permission could not be granted for demonstrations’, was the letter given to HJS volunteers by Dy. zonal officer and dy. zonal Magistrate.
