Lokprabha Article Against Jains
- Lokprabha Article Against Jains
Lokprabha, a Marathi weekly has published an articles `Mumbai
Konaachya Baapaachee' (To whose father Mumbai belongs) in October 3,
2008 issue. The author Raju Parulekar, a Marathi Brahmin has shown
his hatred against Jains in this article.
Please have a look at the internet edition of Lokprabha at:
Parulekar has made an issue of the Vegetarians in Mumbai who do not
allow non Vegetarian people to live in their buildings. Parulekar
has twisted the issue by using the words `Jains' instead of
vegetarians and `Marathi' instead of non vegetarians. `Jains do not
allow Marathis to live in their buildings'! This shows that the
author is either immature or a fool, as there are millions of Jains
who are Marathi. Further he has never used the term `Gujarati' in
the article and instead of it he has used the word Jain. It is fact
that in the population of Gujaratis in Mumbai, Gujarati Jains are a
minority; they are merely 5 to 10 percent. Rest Gujaratis are
vegetarian Vaishnavites Hindus, but the author has nothing to do
with this fact.
The author has used very bad words for Jains in the article. So we
are going to file criminal cases against him for his hatred against
The email address of Raju Parulekar is rajuparulekar@... ,
and you can call him on 09820124419 also. Please condemn him.
We have formed an organization `Jain Panthers' to keep watch on such
incidents against Jains, which will work with other organizations
like Sambhaji Brigade and Samata Vahini, which always support Jains.
