- India will be made a Hindu 'rashtra': Singhal
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international
president Ashok Singhal said here on Wednesday that the VHP would
work for the uprooting of all secular forces in the next Lok Sabha
He was speaking at the 'Suhruth Sangamam' organised here by the
Singhal said that the present Union Government was not a BJP
Government but a "secular NDA Government headed by a secular Prime
Minister". He declared that the VHP would launch a nation-wide
programme to uproot all secular forces.
"India will be made a Hindu rashtra. I am declaring this. Only
those who honour Hindu aspirations should be voted to power. In
the next elections, we should work for a two-thirds majority for
those who are committed to building a Ram temple at Ayodhya,"
Communists, Muslims and Christians constituted the anti-Hindu
force in Kerala and they were jointly targeting Hindus in the name
of secularism, he alleged. Crores of rupees is pumped into the
State for conversion activities. "If Hindus do not open their
eyes, it will be too late," he said.
Singhal urged Hindus in Kerala to give up beef and disallow
politicians from retaining the reins of temple administration.
Several other `anti-Hindu' government measures should also be
resisted, he added.
Stating that it would take the courts at least 10 years to decide
the Ram Janmabhoomi case, the VHP leader said patience of Hindus
was fast running out. "No one in this country can stop
construction of the Ram Janmabhoomi temple. The Hindus cannot bear
to see Lord Rama in a tent.
The Ayodhya excavations have proved VHP's stand on the existence
of a temple at the disputed site with several artefacts pointing
in this direction," he claimed.
