Resolution on Assam

The Governing Council of Vishva Hindu Parishad demands the Central Govt. to confer citizenship to all the Hindus entering Bharat on account of various forms of Social, Economical and religious atrocities committed on them by Muslim fundamentalists, Government authorities and other agencies in Bangladesh. Hindus are On account of such atrocities constantly migrating leaving behind their movable and immovable properties should be duly compensated by the Central Government and the state Government of Assam by allotment of suitable plot and land to each family in Bharat.
Similarly The Hindu D Voters (Doubtful Voters) in the electoral rolls have outnumbered than the Muslim infiltrators, causing serious mental and physical agonies. Therefore it is demanded that the Central Govt. and also the Assam Government should take appropriate steps to regularize the Hindu voters by deleting the letter “D” against their names in the electoral rolls.

The Central Govt. in connivance with the Assam state Government, unconstitutionally and against the wishes and feelings of the people of Assam has decided to transfer about 1400 bighas of Bharat Land in Dumabari and Latitilla sectors of Karimganj and Dhubri Districts to Bangladesh.
Vishva Hindu Parishad takes a serious note of this issue and resolves to strongly oppose this illegal and unconstitutional action of the Central Govt. and Assam Govt. to transfer the land to Bangladesh. Vishwa Hindu Parishad further demands to ensure the protection of borders by means of fencing at Borders as soon as possible.

Chinese have been making continuous intrusion in to the territory of Bharat at various points in Ladhakh, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. Govt. of Bharat appears to be indifference rather helpless in meeting the Chinese challenge. Further China taking advantage of the clay-footed approach of the Government has been resorting to the construction of mega Dams over River Brahmaputra(Trangphoj) at various places in Tibet and China, and even diverting the river course itself, which will have very serious biodiversity and economic effect on Assam and entire north east. In the event of war, China may use water weapon by releasing huge quantity of water which may cause huge loss of human lives and property in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. In case the Chinese govt. do not respond positively for joint inspection of the dams constructed over Brahmaputra, the Central Govt. should stop all imports from China forthwith as these imports have been instrumental in destroying our small industries.

Therefore it is resolved that the Central Govt. should take strict action through diplomatic and other means against China to stop/remove these Dams.

Since recent past along with Pakistan, the Jihadis in Bangladesh have become violently active and their continued infiltration and influence in the Muslim dominated areas of Assam and Meghalay become discernible. In spite of such violent activities by Bangladeshi Muslim fundamentalists in Assam and Meghalaya and the warnings from judiciary, the govt. of Assam, Meghalay and Central Govt. seemed to be unconcerned.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad urges up on the Governments of Assam, Meghalay and the Central to curb the infiltration of Jihadis and their violent activities on the Bharat soil and also provide adequate security to the indigenous people of Northeast Bharat.

The Maoists have been active in carving out a red-corridor right from Chattisgarh and other states to Assam and many unemployed and educated youths drawn in to the Maoists designs, which has seriously threatening the peace in the state. In such a situation it is urged up on the Central Govt. to strengthen the security agencies by employing adequate number of paramilitary forces and intelligence personnel in dealing the Maoist threat.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad reiterates its demand to immediately up-date the National Register of Citizens (NRC) based on the 1951 register on the lineage basis. At the same time VHP wants to bring to the notice of the people of Assam and the Assam Government that “The Assam Panchayat Act 1994 makes a provision of having “Gram Sabha” in each and every village. The Assam Government can empower the Gram Sabha in each village by bringing about suitable Legislative changes in the act to maintain a “Population Register” of their respective village, so that any illegal infiltration in to the village can be checked and also reported to the concerned authorities of every infiltration in to the village. The population register so maintained by the Gram Sabha can be useful to the department of Census and Ministry of Home Affairs in maintaining proper count of the population and also the illegal infiltration from Bangladesh.

The island of Majuli in Assam is the biggest river island in the world encompassing a civil sub-division and Vaishnavite center with four biggest and most prominent SATRAS. Because of these Satras this island is a sacred place to Hindus. In this sacred land of Hindus, Christian activity and propaganda is gradually increasing and they are trying to establish a Church in Majuli. The Christian activity is a threat to the very existence of Vaishnava religion and culture. Majuli Island is also facing another threat of continuous erosion by the mighty river Brahmaputra. VHP demands the central and the state governments to fulfill the long pending demand of the people of Assam by declaring the Majuli Island as a “world Heritage Center” and to take up all the measures required to stop the erosion.

Majority people of Assam are the followers of Vaishnavism founded, preached, established and propagated by Mahapurush Shrimant Shankar Dev, Shri Madhav Dev and Damodar Dev. These Mahapurushas established Satras and Namghars throughout the length and breadth of Assam. These Satras are like Matts of our Hindu dharma. The followers of These Mahapurushas donated thousands of Bighas of fertile lands to these Satras. At present these Satras are facing a serious threat of grabbing their lands and properties by Muslims and Bangladeshi Muslim infiltrators. About 7552 Bighas land belonging to 43 Satras is already grabbed by these grabbers. VHP demands that the state Government of Assam to arrest these grabbers and vacate the lands from the clutches of these infiltrators.

People of Northeast love their religion and freedom from the core of their hearts. It is due to this great zeal that no Muslim invader could enter this sacred land for 700 years. This region has a great history of struggles to save their honor. Certain incidents of recent past have proved it. The Governing council of VHP warns the Central and State governments to resolve all these issues which are very well related to the glory, prestige and existence of the people of Northeast.

Use Temple funds for Uttarakhand reconstruction – VHP

Use Temple funds for Uttarakhand reconstruction – VHP

– Ashok V. Chowgule, Working President (External), VHP

Mumbai, June 29Sat, 2013 – “Pilgrimage (Teerth Yatra) circuits in the form of Chaar Dhaams as four spirituo-cultural outposts on the four borders of Bharat, 12 Jyotirlingamsand 52 Shaktipeeths dotting and networking the whole of Akhand Bharat, the Buddhist and Jain pilgrimage circuits and others act as mobilizing, spiritualizing, unifying and integrating factors for our country hallmarked by the holistic, altruistic and syncretic Rishi-Krishi culture. Pilgrimages to Teerthas (Fords of Liberation) form an important component of spiritual practice for Hindus all over the world which is why even the Hindu diaspora creates its own centres of pilgrimage at blessed river banks, sea shores, hills, mountains, caves, forests, etc., in their esteemed countries of adoption. Additionally, the Hindus also regularly visit temples whenever they have an opportunity. While on such visits, they offer Pranaami (donations) in various forms to the deities to perpetuate and promote their spirituo-cultural cause, patronize the institutions and their service activities including pilgrim facilities and community health and education, etc.,” said here Sri Ashok V. Chowgule, Working President (External) of Vishva Hindu Parishad in a press release.

He further said, over the last couple of decades, in line with a resurgent Hinduism, the number of yatris (pilgrims) is increasing by a substantial quantity. In line with this trend, the amount of donations is increasing at an even more rapid pace.

Unfortunately, these donations are often improperly used to fund activities which do very little for propagating Hindu Dharma or help the poor and needy Hindus. As in the case of Siddhi Vinayak Mandir in Mumbai, the funds have been used by politicians to fund ostensible charity activities but are actually meant for their own political purposes. Temples are religio-spiritual institutions, but the tragedy is that thousands of them and their huge Devottar properties are now under the control of ‘secular’ Governments which is a conspiracy and crime being perpetrated against Hindu Dharma as they have been siphoning its funds for non-Hindu and even in many cases anti-Hindu purposes. And, therefore, their control should be handed over to the Hindu society.

Recently, there has been a tragedy in Uttarakhand, particularly in the Himalayan Chaar Dhaam Yatra route. Apart from substantial loss of life and property, there has been destruction of the infrastructure that had helped the Hindus to make the annual yatra. The Government needs to rebuild this infrastructure of transportation, board & lodging, medical facilities, schools and colleges for the native students, etc., very quickly in order to make the pilgrim traffic and the life of the natives smooth in the circuit. Also, the reconstruction should be done in a way that will reduce the possibility of similar destruction in any possible future calamity. Here it must also be kept in mind that the said circuit is meant for pilgrimage which the people have been conducting here for thousands of years and, therefore, any promotion of tourism, greed and plunder under the guise of ‘development’ here would put unacceptable pressure on the eco-sensitivity of the zone and the recent flash floods exposed the ill-advised and lopsided agenda of the governments for the region.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad strongly suggests that the funds of the temples under government control all over the country should be used for renovating and rebuilding the religio-cultural, spiritual, educational and charitable institutions of the people in the affected areas. Since many of those going to these other temples will also be undertaking the HimalayanChar Dham Yatra, the Hindus will appreciate the use of the funds in this manner. Even as a matter of general policy, the big and affluent temples should patronize the smaller ones existing in their catchment areas in particular and anywhere else in general. Due to the inappropriate policies of the present government of India, the country’s treasury has been seriously depleted. The use of the temple funds for the said purpose will ensure that the reconstruction activity will not be held back under the pretext of lack of funds.

Separately, Vishva Hindu Parishad would appeal to the various institutions and organizations of Sants of Hindu Samaj to also donate to the noble cause of reconstruction of the village temples and facilities for Vedic education and charity in the affected areas of Uttarakhand.
