|The Parliament of People’s Representatives is there to discuss various issues related to National and Public interests. Likewise, this is the ‘Hindu Rashtra Sansad’ of the representatives of Dharma to discuss issues pertaining to Dharma. The resolutions passed in this Sansad will be sent to the Parliamentarians, based on which, issues can be discussed.
In other words, the ‘Hindu Rashtra Sansad’ is only symbolic. The proposals passed in this Sansad may be taken up for discussion in the Indian Parliament in the future.
The Indian Constitution should be based on ancient Dharmashastras
In Christian-majority countries, the Constitution is based on the ‘Bible’ and in Islamic countries, it is based on ‘Quran-Hadiths’. Likewise, the Indian Constitution must be based on the ancient Dharmashastras. This resolution was passed in the 2nd Hindu Rashtra Sansad convened during the 10th Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan. Advocate Umesh Sharma (practicing in the Supreme Court) is the Chairperson, Mr Ramesh Shinde (National Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti) is the Deputy Chairperson, while Mr Chetan Rajhans (National Spokesperson of Sanatan Sanstha) is the Secretary of the Hindu Rashtra Sansad.
The opinion of scholars such as Shankaracharyas and Dharmacharyas should be taken into consideration while preparing the Constitution. The Indian Constitution should clearly define terms such as Dharma, religion, sects, etc. The political parties must declare a time frame 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 a very 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 do not have access to Parsi temples. If the Constitution honours this custom, 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. When a community is accorded minority status, it should be given at the global level. There should be a detailed discussion on which community should be accorded this status from the Indian perspective. The definition of the ‘minority’ concept should be determined.
4. Incidents of ‘Love Jihad’ should be studied in detail by the Women’s Commission. If a Hindu girl marries a person of another religion, the Women’s Commission should ask for 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 claimed that there is no such thing as ‘Love Jihad’, should re-investigate the incidents of ‘Love Jihad’ in Kerala and submit a report to the Supreme Court.
6. When drafting a blasphemy law, a 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 comprehensively study reservations. A detailed discussion should be held on 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
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 the resolutions for which there are no laws currently. This also needs to be studied. The State Government should immediately rectify incorrect decisions. If no progress is noticed, courts should be approached at 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 ! : Mr Anand Jakhotia (HJS 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. Since the Police release cattle smugglers and do not take action against them, suitable changes are required in the laws. A stringent law against ‘Love Jihad’ should also be enacted. The guilty should be punished. Hindu activists agitate for the Nation and Dharma; however, false cases are filed against them. After a 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 (HJS State Coordinator for East and North East India
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, 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 how to utilise this to our advantage. Once elected, the wealth of the people’s representatives doubles during their tenure. Such representatives should be reported to the Anti-Corruption Bureau. Hindus have the right to criticise Democracy. Hindus should point out its flaws. If one looks at the expenditure incurred on processing 1 kg of meat in a slaughterhouse objectively (example – on water, electricity, transportation, etc.), it is huge. In comparison, 1 kg of wheat is easily available 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 (Gaurakshak, Dhule, Maha.)
Hindus are ignorant about the laws. They must be informed. Cows are slaughtered in broad daylight. Instead of cracking down on 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 given harsher punishment.
5. Mr Vinodkumar Sarvodaya (from Ghaziabad, UP)
The Minority Commission should be done away with, and thus, 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 they have faced due to displacement.
7. Mr Manoj Khadye (HJS Western Maharashtra and Gujarat State Organiser)
The present Indian Judiciary does not seem to reflect the Hindu traditions and philosophy, which are thousands of years old. The basis of law should be the ancient and most revered Hindu Dharma.
8. Mr Narendra Surve (of HJS)
India, a Hindu majority Nation, accords secondary citizen status to Hindus. The Supreme Court has decriminalised extramarital affairs and homosexuality. This undermines India’s cultural values.
9. Mr Alok Tiwari (A devout Hindu, Pratapgarh, UP)
Many do not know anything about the Indian Constitution. Therefore, our 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 created. To improve the Indian system of governance, the head of the education department and related education officers should be proficient in the Vedas and Sanskrut.
The opinion of Shankaracharyas and Dharmacharyas should be considered while preparing the Constitution !
