Udupi, Nov 27, 2017 : Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s International President Praveen Bhai Togadia has said that those who are seeking a memorial for Babur are anti-nationals.
Addressing the Hindu Samajotsava held at the MGM College grounds on November 26, Sunday evening on the concluding day of the Dharma Sansad, he said Vishwa Hindu Parishad needs Rama Rajya as well as Rama Mandir. No one can stop construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya, he declared and added that there was no need for any negotiation on the Ayodhya issue.
Togadia also demanded a ban on the controversial Bollywood film ’Padmavathi’ and said the film producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali should make a movie on Prophet Muhammad if he had the guts. We want a nation where Hindu youth have jobs and farmers are free from debt, the nation should also be free from untouchability, he added.
Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji f Pejawar Mutt, in his address, tried to end the controversy over his statement seeking an amendment to the Constitution. He said he only wanted the privileges enjoyed by the minorities to be available to the majority community too. He regretted that his words have been misinterpreted.
Several seers who participated in the Dharma Sansad were present during the Hindu Samajotsav.
‘Those opposing Ram temple should leave the country’
Swami Narendranandaji Saraswati Maharaj of Kashi on Sunday said that those opposing the Ram Temple in Ayodhya should leave the country. He was speaking at a session on the final day of the three-day Dharma Sansad organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), here.
The seer said that those who were questioning RSS Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagawat on Ayodhya were traitors. Pension facility should be made available to those who had been fighting for the Ayodhya cause just as it was being given to freedom fighters, he added.
While the people of the majority Hindu community had two children, those from the minority Muslim community could get married four times and have 20 children. This was dangerous to the Hindu community and hence, the Uniform Civil Code should be implemented. Caste-based laws were dangerous. Instead, primacy should be accorded to merit.
Government facilities should be available to all. Just as mosques and churches were not under the control of the government, so too the management of temples and mutts should be managed by a board of sants and sadhus.
