Navi Mumbai – Hindu organisations have demanded a strict action in an outrageous incident that had taken place in Seawoods, Navi Mumbai, in which minor girls were sexually assaulted in the hostel of the church of ‘Bethel Gospel Charitable Trust’. A delegation of pro-Hindu organisations along with the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti gave a communiqué to Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Bipin Kumar Singh with demands that ‘a thorough investigation of this case should be undertaken, and strict action should be taken against all the culprits involved in it, and all hostels under churches in Navi Mumbai should be scrutinised’.

Speaking on this issue, the Police Commissioner said, ‘If we receive information about those who aided the criminals in this case, we will definitely take note of it. In order not to repeat such cases, we have appointed a separate unit for verification, and we have also given proper instructions to it’.

Mr Deepakraj Thakur, District Joint Minister of Konkan region of International Hindu Council and Rashtriya Bajrang Dal, Mr Sudhir Malik of Kharghar Block Division, Dharmapracharak Mr. Rajesh Chauhan, Vice President of ‘Ek Mutthi Anaj’ Yojana Mr Vipin Solanki, Vice President of National Women’s Assembly (Panvel) Harshada Kulkarni, General Secretary of BJP Yuva Morcha Mr Gulab Kumar Navik, devout Hindu Mr Awadesh Chauhan, Dr Mamta Desai, Mr Vasant Sanas and Mr Ramesh Sanil of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti were present while handing over the communiqué.

Lustful hostel manager arrested

According to the complaint lodged by the officials of the Thane District Women and Child Development Department, a case has been registered against Rajkumar Yesudasan, who runs a hostel, and he has been arrested. Further investigation is underway. The lust that goes on in Christian institutions under the pretext of God’s worship and charitable work is a blot on humanity. There is a strong outrage in public about this incident and strict action is being demanded against all the culprits.

Editorial Viewpoint

Why do Hindu organisations have to make such a demand ? Why do the Police not take cognisance and act against the accused ?
