................VISHVA HINDU PARISHAD
...............Saadar Jai Sri Ram.
The majority in our country is leading a life of neglect due to wrong policies adopted since independence by not following proper secularism and consequently being discriminated against. In order to reverse this situation, all political parties should adopt the attached points in their election manifesto. It will be wise to remember that in our country Hindus are also voters and not merely the minorities and, therefore, their sentiments and aspirations should also be honoured.
.........Yours in the service of Bharat Mata,
..............For Vishva Hindu Parishad,
President Ashok Singhal
Acharya Giriraj Kishore
Senior Vice President,
(then Secretary General)
..............POINTS OF HINDU AGENDA
From the beginning of the creation Bharatvarsha known by the name of Aryavarta and Hindusthan has been the birthplace of Hindu race and its ancestors. In the ancient history of the world, the glory of this world famous, Indivisible, sovereign Aryavarta spread over from Himalayas to the seas is clearly mentioned. It is an undisputed and self-evident Arya Rashtra or Hindu Rashtra duly supported geographically.
After its freedom from the unfortunate slavery of one thousand years Hindu nation as a result of its continuous struggle and unmatchable sacrifices should have got political, religious and cultural freedom in its motherland, Bharat. After the unfortunate partition of Bharatbhoomi, the remaining portion of divided Bharat inevitably and self-evidently remains and continues to be secular Bharat Bhoomi. It is indeed extremely unfortunate that due to the shortsighted and foreign-oriented thought and perception of the country, this most ancient, glorious and cultural civilisation finds itself powerless, helpless and orphaned in its own country.
The political parties prompted by the spirit of pseudo secularism and not the real secularism, which the term conveys, by resorting to the policy of appeasement of anti-national elements have rendered the mainstream Hindu Samaj deplorably orphaned and their motherland Bharatvarsha like a wretched Dharamshala.
Vishva Hindu Parishad presents this Hindu agenda before the political parties to salvage Bharat and Hindu Nation unfortunately surrounded by inimical forces and innumerable difficulties to ensure just human rights to the vast community of 80 crores in their homeland. It is the duty of every political party in the country to promise to safeguard the interests of the national mainstream, i.e., Hindu Samaj (Sanaatan, Boudha, Jain, Sikh Panths, etc.)
In the forthcoming Lok Sabha Elections we want the Parties to promise the following agenda:
Hindutva and nationalism in Bharat are synonymous. Hindu Samaj is indisputably the main current of Bharat. Hindu interest is the national interest. Therefore, the honour and the interests of Hindus will be protected in every manner.
Every nation has a constitutional denomination. Only "Bharat" Which has the ancient, glorious and historical connotations will have constitutional recognition.
The patriotic Hindus all over the world aspire to construct a magnificent temple at Sri Rama Janma Bhumi in Ayodhya in accordance with the model approved by the revered saints. The Janma Bhumi Complex will be immediately handed over by enacting a suitable legislation to Sri Rama Janma Bhumi Nyas which is in forefront of Sri Rama Janma Bhumi awakening and is recognised as such by Hindus all over the world.
The Holy campuses of Sri Krishna Janmasthan at Mathura, and Sri Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Gyanvapi at Varanasi which were desecrated and remodelled by foreigners will be immediately handed over to the Hindu Samaj by enacting a suitable legislation.
Slaughter of Cow and its progeny shall be completely banned throughout the country by enacting an effective legislation and made a rigorously punishable offence.
Gau-Seva Ministries will be formed in the centre and the states to protect environment, natural ecology and agro-economy, for establishment of self-reliant village-oriented economy, to foster and develop the national species of cow and its progeny, for production of natural and organic manure and to enhance the production of milk, butter, ghee and yogurt, etc., and to utilise the tremendous ox-power in national interest.
The anti-national activity of religious conversion of Hindus by force, fraud or false propaganda by exploiting the innocence the poverty of backward communities will be strictly banned.
All foreign remittances to non-governmental agencies, social, religious or service organizations or individuals will be stopped, so that the money and material so received is not misutilised for religious conversion and other divisive conspiracies.
A uniform civil code will be promulgated throughout the country to check inequality, imbalance, injustice, and atrocities on women and to stop the malpractice of polygamy.
Abortion and female infanticide, which promote immorality and female persecution, will be banned. More stringent penal provisions will be made against rape and kidnapping of women. Firm steps will be taken to check the scourge of dowry system.
Article 370 of the Constitution, which smacks of a separate balkanised identity of Kashmir from the rest of the country, will be scrapped. The restriction on sale and purchase of property in Kashmir by Bharatiya citizens will be abolished.
The Kashmiri migrants will be honourably rehabilitated. Their snatched properties will be restored and the deprived families will be compensated. Adequate arrangements for their security will also be made.
