Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) National Spokesperson Vivek Bansal issued a press release on the forced & illegal conversion happening in the country.
The press release reads:
Affronted and offended by the increasing incidents of love jihad and illegal religious conversions in the country, the Hindu society now looks for a permanent solution to the nuisance! Vishva Hindu Parishad, along with the Sant fraternity and every indigenous Mata-Panth-Sampradaay, has issued a clarion call against the undermining agenda that threatens the national unity and territorial integrity of Bharat.
VHP’s Central Working President and Senior Advocate Shri Alok Kumar announced that the Karyakartas of Vishva Hindu Parishad, through the Dharma Raksha Abhiyan (Save Dharma Campaign) in the whole country from December 21 to December 31, 2022, will not only awaken the nationals against religious conversions being done by force, fraud and allurement but will also free the nation from this pest.
He said that by keeping Swami Shraddhanandji’s martyrdom day on 23rd December as the point of reference, VHP shall take forward his Shuddhi Movement and speed up the ‘Paraavartan’ (‘Home-Coming’) campaign to bring back the brethren who had gotten estranged from their Mother Society (Hindu society) for any reason.
During the campaign, in addition to Havan-Yagya, Katha-Pravachan, Shobha Yatras, Seminars, distribution of Divine-Literature, participation and guidance of revered saints in Pada Yatras and Prabhat Pheris, and also apart from special programmes for women, men and children, many competition programmes and Dharmic awakening ones will be conducted.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi on December 20, the VHP Working President said that so far we have saved 62 lakh Hindus from religious conversion and brought 9 lahks back to their original fold with respect. About 20 lakh cow-progeny were saved from being slaughtered and 25 thousand Hindu daughters were saved from getting trapped in the clutches of love jihadists.
He said that in the very second year of the establishment of VHP, i.e., in the first World Hindu Conference in 1966, in the presence of more than one lakh delegates from 12 countries, the announcement of ‘Paraavartan’ (‘Home-Coming’) was made and only three years after that in 1969, the declaration of ‘Hindavah Sodaraa Sarve, Na Hindu Patito Bhavet’ (All Hindus are siblings, No Hindu is fallen’ by the Jagadgurus infused new energy in the society.
Shri Alok Kumar said that these days a special campaign by Sansad Sampark Abhiyan is undergoing to meet with our honourable Members of Parliament from all over the country by Vishva Hindu Parishad. During this 12-day campaign, which started on December 12, personal contact is being made with the MPs of both the Houses of Parliament.
Under this, the Karyakartas of VHP’s Vishesh Sampark Vibhag (Special Contact Cell) are drawing the attention of the Hon’ble MPs to the issues of Population imbalance, liberating Hindu temples from government control and also the creation of separate ministries at the centre and states to ensure the sanctity of the Dharmic-pilgrimage sites.
A total of 74 VHP Karyakartas, including 4 women Karyakartas, had joined the campaign in its first phase. In the last 8 days, a total of 286 Hon’ble MPs of all parties, including 225 Lok Sabha and 61 Rajya Sabha MPs, have been contacted. We also met some Muslim and Christian MPs. The second phase of the campaign started yesterday and by next Friday we will meet 450 to 500 MPs.
VHP’s Central secretary & National Dharm Prasar Pramukh Shri Sudhanshu Patnaik and Vishesh Sampark Pramukh Shri Narpat Singh were also present at this press conference.
