Ramnathi, (Goa) – In Christian-majority countries, the constitution is based on the ‘Bible’ and in Islamic countries, is based on ‘Quran-Hadiths’. Similarly, the Indian Constitution must be based on the ancient Dharmashaastras. This resolution was passed in the second Hindu Rashtra Sansad that was convened during the 10th Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan. Supreme Court Advocate Umesh Sharma is the Chairperson, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti National Spokesperson Mr Ramesh Shinde is the Deputy Chairperson, while the National Spokesperson of Sanatan Sanstha Mr Chetan Rajhans is the Secretary of the Hindu Rashtra Sansad.
The opinion of scholars like Shankaracharyas and Dharmacharyas should be taken into consideration while preparing the Constitution. The Indian Constitution should clearly define the terms such as Dharma, religion, sects, etc. The political parties must declare a timeframe to fulfil their pre-poll promises. These and various proposals were tabled in the Hindu Rashtra Sansad. These proposals were met with loud and spontaneous cheers of approval.
Deputy Chair Mr Ramesh Shinde’s thoughts on the proposals on behalf of the Chair !
1. India is a nation with an ancient culture. India does not follow the ideology of any individual. Therefore, the words ‘secularism’ and ‘socialism’ should be removed from the Constitution.
2. Non-Parsis have no access to Parsi temples. If the constitution honours this custom, then the tradition of not allowing women between the ages of 10 and 50 into the Sabarimala temple must be honoured too.
3. Hindus are a minority in the world. Therefore, when a community is accorded minority status, it should be given on a global level. There should be a detailed discussion on which community should be accorded this status from the Indian point of view. The exact definition of the ‘minority’ concept should be determined.
4. The incidents of Love Jihad should be studied in detail by the Women’s Commission. If a Hindu girl gets married to a person of another religion, then the Women’s Commission should seek a follow-up testimony in a year. It is necessary to ascertain if the married woman is being forced to convert.
5. The National Investigation Agency, which reported that Love Jihad does not exist, should re-investigate the facts of the Love Jihad incidents in Kerala and submit a report to the Supreme Court.
6. When drafting a blasphemy law, the proposal should be sent to a Reform Committee to determine what provisions should be included in it.
7. The government should set up a committee to conduct a comprehensive study on reservations. A detailed discussion should be held for reservations for the economically deserving.
Should revisit current laws to see if there are provisions related to the resolutions tabled in the Hindu Rashtra Sansad – Advocate Umesh Sharma, Chairperson
It is necessary to revisit the current laws to see if there are provisions that will help pass the resolutions tabled in the Hindu Rashtra Sansad. What are the legal guidelines or court mandates related to those resolutions for which there are no laws currently? This also needs to be studied. The state government should immediately rectify incorrect decisions. When no progress is seen, then approach the courts on every step.
Points tabled by the members of the Hindu Rashtra Sansad and the Parliamentary Expert Committee
1. A stringent law against ‘Love Jihad’ should be enacted ! – Anand Jakhotia, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti State Coordinator for Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh,
India should become a Hindu Rashtra. A pro-Hindu government should work for Hindu Dharma. The government must provide financial assistance to temple priests and Vedapathshalas. The police release cattle smugglers and do not act against them. A stringent law should be enacted on this. A stringent law against Love Jihad should be enacted. The guilty should be punished. Hindu activists agitate for the nation and religion; however, false cases are filed against them. After the pro-Hindu government came to power, the cases against them should have been withdrawn. It would be pertinent to note that minorities do not act in national interests.
2. Mr Shambhu Gaware, State Coordinator for East and North East India, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti – Jailed Hindu activists face many struggles. No one thinks about the future of their children, so their families do not get the help they need. On the other hand, when fanatics have to go to jail, a wave of sympathy is generated. Therefore the Hindus too should form a pressure group to prevent any unwarranted action against Hindu activists.
3. Advocate Virendra Ichalkaranjikar, National President, Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad – Laws are the same for all, we Hindus should think about how to utilise this to our advantage. Once elected, the wealth of the people’s representatives doubles during their tenure. Such people’s representatives should be reported to the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Hindus have the right to criticize democracy. Hindus should point out its flaws. If one looks at the expenditure incurred for processing 1 kg of meat in a slaughterhouse objectively e.g. Expenditure on water, electricity, transportation, etc., it is huge. In comparison, 1 kg of wheat is easily available and at a low price. Meat is very expensive and slaughterhouses are quickly turning into a point of concern across the world.
4. Mr Sanjay Sharma, Gorakshak, Dhule, Maharashtra – Hindus are ignorant of the law. They have to become informed. Cows are slaughtered in broad daylight. Instead of cracking down on the cattle smugglers, the police help them. The property of cow slaughterers should be confiscated. The paltry 6 months of jail time awarded to cattle smugglers should be done away with and they should be subject to stringent action.
5. Mr Vinod Kumar Sarvodaya, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh – The Minority commission should be rejected and thereby the appeasement of Muslims must be stopped. The empowerment of minorities in political parties should be stopped.
6. Mr Rahul Kaul, Panun Kashmir (Our Kashmir) – Kashmiri Hindus have been waiting for 32 years to be rehabilitated. Legislation should be enacted to ensure that no one else has to undergo the pain of displacement like them.
7. Mr Manoj Khadye, Western Maharashtra and Gujarat State Organizer, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti – The present Indian justice system does not seem to reflect the Hindu thought tradition of thousands of years ago. The basis of law should be the ancient and most revered Hindu Dharma.
8. Mr Narendra Surve, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti – India, which is a Hindu majority nation accords a secondary citizen status to Hindus. The Supreme Court has decriminalised extramarital affairs and homosexuality. This undermines India’s cultural values.
9. Mr Alok Tiwari, devout Hindu, Pratapga – Many do not know anything about the Constitution. Therefore, the constitution should be taught in a simple language. Punitive action should be taken against those who attack Hindu society.
10. Mr Anirban Niyogi, General Secretary, ‘Salkiya Bharatiya Sadhak Samaj’, Howrah (Bengal) – A legal system that is in sync with the Indian systems should be formed. To improve the Indian system of government, the head of the education department and the education officers should be proficient in Vedas and Sanskrit.
11. Mr Ishwarprasad Khandelwal, Lashkar-e-Hind, Palghar (Mumbai) – A Gurukul Education System Board should be established.
12. Mr Ramesh Shinde, Deputy Chairperson, Hindu Rashtra Sansad – People’s representatives should be evaluated by the citizens of their constituency. The structure of the Constitution should be per Indian culture. Gurukul Education System Board should be formed, and the head of the education department should be proficient in Vedas and Sanskrit language.
The Deputy Chairperson Shri. Ramesh Shinde said ‘all these proposals tabled in the Second Hindu Rashtra Sansad will be sent to the people’s representatives of the Indian Parliament’.
The hall resonated with chants after the Hindu Rashtra Sansad concluded.
