Success of Ranaragini Division promoted by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) !
Mapusa : ‘Mermaid’s Boutique’ is a shop run by a foreigner lady at Majalwada, Hanjune. There were tags with indecent pictures of Goddess Lakshmi on the clothes displayed in her shop. Ranaragini Division promoted by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) explained to the lady-owner of the shop regarding denigration of Deity and hurting of religious sentiments of Hindus. They demanded to remove all such pictures from her shop. She removed all the pictures and rendered apology for denigration of Deity in case such pictures had caused. (On the other hand, our own anglicized intellectuals denigrate Deities and when it is brought to their notice, they impudently refuse to render apology claiming to be progressive ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) Sou. Rajshree Gadekar, Sou. Shubha Sawant of Ranaragini Division and Shri. Rohidas Malwankar, a devout Hindu were part of the delegation meeting the owner of the shop.
Few devout Hindus informed members of Ranaragini Division about indecent and denigrating pictures of Devi in the shop in which her upper body was bare. Tags with such pictures were put on several clothes. On getting information, members of Ranaragini Division contacted the lady-owner of the shop for appointment. Initially, she tried to avoid giving reason that she was busy. On 4th April, however, she could be contacted and she was explained about how the pictures caused denigration of the Deity. She immediately removed those tags, replacing them with different ones. It may be mentioned that a devout Hindu had observed the denigrating pictures and informed about the same to a Government officer, demanding to take action.
