The letter further states that during the Dharmasansad of Saints at Haridwar from 17th to 19th December 2021, speeches were continuously made against the constitutional values of the country and ethnic harmony. There was also talk of taking up arms against minorities. (Are these advocates, who are so vigilant about the alleged taking up of arms against the minorities, high on the opium of secularism when arms are actually being used against the majority Hindus in the country ? – Editor)
