A Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) leader has warned that Bajrang Dal youth will be sent to “attract Muslim girls” if “love jihad” continues.
“Muslims must stop love jihad, otherwise we will send our youths from the Bajrang Dal to attract Muslim girls. We are not opposed to love but our girls think Shah Rukh and Shirish are the same or Salman and Sunil are the same, but they don’t know that Hindu boys marry only once and the others will marry several times,” VHP secretary Gopal said at a gathering of Hindu religious leaders in the coastal city of Udipi in Karnatka.
Pertinently, according to Outlook.com, the first formal announcement for Ram Temple in Ayodhya was made in Udipi in 1985 and a year later, the doors of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya were open to public for ‘darshan’.
The gathering also demanded the immediate withdrawal of a directive, which it claimed was issued by the Centre to states on cow vigilantism.
Briefing reporters on the concluding day of the three-day conclave ‘Dharam Sansad’, VHP international joint general secretary Surendra Kumar Jain said the meet passed a resolution to this effect.
“The notification was issued a few days ago by the Centre to all state governments. We want to tell the Centre it is not the cow protectors, but the cattle smugglers whose dossier is to be prepared,” he claimed.
He said the conclave in another resolution urged the Supreme Court to widen the scope of nodal officers appointed to check cow vigilantes to also include those who kill cows.
“We do not want the protection of fake cow protectors. Such impostors must be brought to book. But in the process of taming fake cow vigilantes, the sincere cow protectors should not suffer. We appeal to the Supreme Court to widen the scope and area of nodal officers and include cow butchers,” he said.
Jain said the meet also passed a resolution seeking the setting up of a DNA test facility at points from where beef was being exported.
The meet took a strong objection to those “intentionally” organising beef parties. “Such things irritate people and agitate the society,” Jain said.
The Dharam Sansad earlier pitched for a law that includes death penalty for cow slaughter, including for those who transport the meat, according to Indian Express. Several religious leaders hoped for an order by Prime Minister Narendra Modi banning cow slaughter overnight, like in the case of demonetisation
Another resolution demanded that facilities given to the religious minorities be extended to the religious majority, saying due to this discrimination, many Hindu communities want to become religious minority groups to enjoy the benefit, reported news agency PTI.
More than 2,000 seers, mutt heads and other Sangh Parivar leaders attended the conclave, where the issue of building a Ram Temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya was discussed.
Addressing the meet on its inaugural day, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said only the Ram Temple would come up there and not any other structure.
Vishvesha Teertha Swamiji of Pejavar Math of Udupi, who chaired the reception committee, has said that the Ram Temple will be built in a year.
