Strong action is required against those who insult Hindu Dharma; we demand a law against blasphemy in the country !
Lodge complaints against those who insult Hindu Dharma and prepare to fight legally ! : Prashanth Sambargi
“We must protest whenever Hindu Dharma is insulted or made fun of through any programme or performance. Until the people are made aware of this insult of Hindu Dharma and until alert Hindus raise their voice against it, such insults of Hindu Dharma will continue in the name of ‘Freedom of Expression’. Hindus should come forward, lodge complaints and fight legally against such insulting programmes, organisers and performers”, said Mr Prashanth Sambargi (Prominent film producer and businessman of Karnataka) while speaking in a Special Online discussion organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on the topic of ‘Is insulting Hindu Dharma ‘Freedom of Expression’ of Munawar Faruqui ?’
“The constitutional right to ‘Freedom of Expression’ is different for Hindus than that for the Muslims in this country. The radical Muslims believe that Islam is the only religion in the world. If anyone speaks anything about Islam or Prophet Muhammad, they are brutally murdered, their houses and shops are set on fire. At the same time, vast funds are pumped into Bollywood for insulting Hindu Dharma through films. And, they continue to show Hindus and Hinduism in bad light. Hence, it is necessary to be aware about this conspiracy and oppose it strongly”.
Hindu Deities are being insulted openly
Mrs Mani Mittal (Senior Advocate in Supreme Court of India) said, “Munawar Faruqui is a part of a chain that started from MF Hussain. Faruqui is a stigma in the name of an ‘artist’. Through the stand-up comedy platform, these people are openly making fun of Hindu Dharma, insulting our Gods and Goddesses. All this is wrong and needs to be stopped. We should be alert and protest against this. It is a sensitive subject and we should fight so as to win. Its very pitiable to say, but the stance of the Supreme Court about insults of Hindu Dharma is not clear cut and strong”.
There are many laws to protect minorities in this country, but no laws to protect the majority Hindus ?
Mr Yudhvir Singh Chouhan (Advocate in Delhi High Court) said, “The Dharma we believe in is being ridiculed. Hindu Deities are insulted and Hindus silently tolerate it. Such people are testing the patience of Hindus ! It is necessary to lodge complaints at many places against those who insult Hindu Dharma. Only then can we teach a lesson to them. There are many laws to protect minorities in this country, but no laws to protect the majority Hindus ?”
Has insulting Hindu Deities become an art ?
Mr Mohan Gowda (Spokes-person of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti) said, “Whenever Hindu Dharma was insulted, Hindus opposed it through legal means. Munawar Faruqui, Kunal Kamra, etc. have repeatedly and impudently insulted Hindu Dharma through various programmes. Has insulting Hindu Deities become an art ? If anyone insults Islam, what would have been the state of this Nation ? It is necessary to take strong action against those who insult Hindu Dharma, and so, we are demanding a law against blasphemy in the country”.
