Udupi, Sep 10, 2017: Vishwaprasanna Tirtha Swami, junior seer of Pejawar Mutt, said on Sept 9, Saturday that the issues of banning cow slaughter, conversion, and construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya should be solved. Speaking at a function held on Udupi to mark the inauguration of the reception office for the Dharma Sansad added it is being organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad here from November 24 to 26.
The seer said that the solution of these three important issues would lead to peace in the society.
Basavaraj, zonal organising secretary of VHP, said that cow slaughter should be banned in the country. Conversion by minority communities should be stopped. The practice of untouchability should also be stopped and the Ram temple must be constructed at Ayodhya. The Dharma Sansad would discuss and take a decision on these issues. About 2,500 seers and ‘sants’ are expected to participate in the Dharma Sansad, he said.
Nalin Kumar Kateel, MP, said that Hindu community was facing three types of challenges. One was the intellectual challenge, where some forces were tarnishing the image of Hindu “dharma peethas”. The second was a cultural challenge in the form of “love jihad”. Recently, even the Supreme Court ordered a probe in a case of love jihad. The third was a challenge from the authority, where efforts were being made to divide the Hindu community through methods such mobilisation of minorities, backward classes and Dalits, who went under the acronym ‘Ahinda’ and were creating divisions among Lingayats-Veerashaivas. But Lingayats-Veerashaivas were a part of the Hindu community.
