Ban Bajrang Dal and VHP…

Do You Know?

Put A BAN On Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad(VHP)

The Bajrang Dal a Hindu organization in India, is the youth wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and is based on the ideology of Hindutva. Founded on October 1, 1984 in Uttar Pradesh, India, it has since spread throughout India. The group claims to have 1,300,000 members, of whom 850,000 are workers, and runs about 2,500 akhadas.

The Bajrang Dal’s slogan is “service, safety, and culture.” An integral part of its agenda is preventing the slaughter of cows. Other goals include protecting India’s Hindu identity from the perceived dangers of communism, Muslim demographic growth and Christian conversion.

Bajrang Dal is a religious extremist terrorist outfit that often gets into various activities such as moral policing (particularly on Valentine days), rioting, killing and burning Christians, their houses and churches. In the early days, they and their supporters used to deny their crime charges as Christian conspiracy or “it was not us, but the Hindus in general retaliating“. But ever since their political supporters (BJP) have formed the Government in the Indian states of Karnataka and Orissa, they have come out in public and claimed before the TV cameras that they have done it and they will do it again.

The explosion occurred at a hostel in Kalyanpur area of Kanpur, about 80 km from Lucknow. Piyush Mishra is the son of SS Mishra who own this hostel.

Deeds of Bajrang Dal

  • The Bajrang Dal, formed in 1984, played a big role in the events leading to the demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya in December 1992, which led to widespread Hindu-Muslim violence in the country.
  • According to the Human Rights Watch, Bajrang Dal had been involved in riots against Muslims in the 2002 Gujarat violence.

A mass grave in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, in which sixty-one bodies — thirty-four of women and twenty-seven of children — are buried. Since February 27, 2002, more than 850 people have been killed in communal violence in the state of Gujarat, most of them Muslims. Unofficial estimates put the death toll as high as 2,000. The attacks against Muslims in Gujarat have been actively supported by state government officials and by the police. Police told Muslims, "WE DON'T HAVE ANY ORDERS TO SAVE YOU."

  • In April 2006, two Bajrang Dal activists were killed in nearby Nanded in the process of bomb making. The same group of activists were also suspected for perpetrating the 2003 Parbhani Mosque blasts. Those arrested later told interrogators they wanted to avenge several blasts across the country. NDTV subsequently accused the police of a coverup in Nandhed. A report by the Secular Citizen’s Forum & PUCL, Nagpur claimed to have found maps of mosques at the home of one of the deceased.
  • The VHP leader, Praveen Togadia, was arrested in April 2003 after distributing tridents to Bajrang Dal activists in Ajmer defying ban and prohibitory orders. Togadia asserted that the coming Assembly polls in the Indian state of Rajasthan would be fought on the issue of tridents and attacked the ruling Congress Party for “placating” Muslims for electoral gains. He expressed satisfaction at the publicity received due to the incident.

  • The Bajrang Dal has been accused of not allowing Muslims to own land in parts of Gujarat by attacking traders who sell to Muslims and by attacking Muslim homes and forcing the sale of the house or flat. This creates a ghettoisation of large cities in Gujarat, like Ahmedabad and Vadodara.
  • On several occasions, acting as “Social Police” the activists of Bajrang Dal have caught un-married couples on Valentines day and forced them to apply sindoor or tie rakhis against their wishes. The activists of Bajrang Dal have often indulged in violence, invading gift shops and restaurants and threatening couples on Valentines day.
  • The Bajrang Dal has also been involved in bomb making accidents on August 6, 2006 in Nanded, and on August 24, 2008 in Kanpur.
  • In September 2008, a fresh wave of attacks directed against the Newlife Christian churches and prayer halls in Karnataka by the Bajrang Dal, as a protest against defaming hindu gods and against religious conversion carried on by the Newlife Missionaries. Later, Mahendra Kumar, the convener of Bajrang Dal was arrested in connection with it even after he publicly announced that they are not reponsible for the attacks, after the Center had strongly criticized the state Government. In addition, the National Commission for Minorities has also blamed them for the religious violence in BJP-ruled states of Karnataka and Orissa. However, some police reports claim that the Bajrang Dal was not involved and that the attacks were carried out by splinter groups. However, testimonies of Bajrang Dal activists show exactly the opposite, as they described the attacks and openly warned of more violence.

“COME BACK AS HINDU OR DON’T COME BACK AT ALL”

DEMAND for BAN on BAJRANG DAL

  • Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav.
  • Minister for Steel Ram Vilas Paswan
  • Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar
  • Members of the Samajwadi Party
  • The Indian National Congress, Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, former Prime Minister H. D. Deve Gowda and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati have demanded a ban on Bajrang Dal and Sri Rama Sena. In this regard, Deve Gowda sent a letter to prime minister and accused Bajrang Dal “for perpetrating senseless violence” against minorities in Karnataka and Orissa.
  • Wakf and Minorities Welfare Minister Mumtaz Ali Khan has urged the government to ban any organisation, including Bajrang Dal, if found to be involved in anti-national activities disturbing communal harmony.
  • Former Karnataka Chief Minister Veerappa Moily told that the party is in favour of banning the right-wing Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). “The Bajrang Dal deserves to be banned. They have earned this image for themselves. The terrorists hide and do it, Bajrang Dal do it openly,” He also said that the activities of the saffron outfit are more pronounced in the BJP-ruled states and alleged that these state governments were collaborating with the Bajrang Dal rather than checking their activities. “The BJP-ruled states think that the Bajrang Dal is an oxygen for their survival. This is very unfortunate,” Moily said while attacking the outfit for its role in anti-Christian violence in some parts of the country.“In the case of Bajrang Dal, we find that the BJP-ruled states have not recommended the ban. This means they are collaborating with the organisation,” he said.

  • The National Minorities Commission has recommended a ban on the Bajrang Dal for its alleged role in the attacks on churches in Karnataka and Orissa. The Commission is working towards a unanimous decision seeking tough measures against the Bajrang Dal as its involvement in “frequent attacks on the minorities and their places of worship across the country has been established beyond doubt”. “Despite repeated assurances from top state officials, the attacks on churches and Christians are continuing in Karnataka. It shows the state government(BJP) is not serious in reining in the elements responsible for pre-planned attacks,” commission vice-chairman Michael P. Pinto said.
  • The Communist Party of India (Marxist) said that it had urged the Union Home Ministry to put the Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on the watch list of organisations indulging in terrorist-like activities and take the “severest action.”
  • The monthly magazine Communalism Combat started by civil rights activist Teesta Setalvad demanded an immediate ban on the Bajrang Dal in August 2008.
  • Leader of the Lok Janashakti Party (LJP) Ramchandra Paswan describing the Bajrang Dal as communal organization said, “Bajrang Dal and VHP should immediately be banned.”

Bajrang Dal Dares Government to BAN it…

The Bajrang Dal, the youth wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), has dared the Indian government to ban it, warning that the authorities would face the ‘consequences’ if it was outlawed.

‘We will fight the ban and we will go to the people to explain the injustice done to us. The elections are coming up soon and it (a ban) will prove costly for the government,’ Prakash Sharma, national convenor of the Bajrang Dal, told…

The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has decided to call a special cabinet meeting to discuss a possible ban on the Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad over the continuing attacks on Christians and its institutions in Orissa and Karnataka.

A Shameful Day In The INDIAN HISTORY…

Do You Know?

Date : 22 JULY 2008

PARLIAMENT : LOK SABHA

UPA GOVERNMENT TRUST VOTE

DRAMA IN THE PARLIAMENT

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5QLBxIDP8E

3 BJP MPs BROUGHT 1 CRORE IN THE PARLIAMENT SAYING THAT THE MONEY IS GIVEN TO THEM AS BRIBE TO SUPPORT THE GOVERNMENT IN THE TRUST VOTE…

L K Advani said “In my parliamentary career, I have never come across such a sad situation where MPs were offered money to abstain from voting (in the confidence vote).” Terming it a very unfortunate episode in the parliamentary democracy of the country, he demanded “a proper inquiry” into the incident. He also said that they have proof that the 3 MPs were given bribe. He said the tape which has the proof recored is with the leading news channel which has recored it. And the news channel has said that they will sent the tape to the speaker.

However, the Congress and the Samajwadi Party have termed the incident as a thought out game of the BJP. RJD supremo and Railway Minister Laloo Yadav said, “This (showing money in the House) is a ploy of the BJP.” Amar Singh also challenged Adavni and the BJP to prove the allegations. Terming the concerned MPs as “political prostitute”, he said, “Is it (Rs 3 crores) the price of the BJP MPs when there are rumours and claims that smaller parties’ MPs are being offered 30-40 crores of Rupees.”

Union Science and Technology Minister Kapil Sibal too demanded an investigation into the allegations by the BJP members. “The matter (of cash being brought into the House) needs to be investigated into,” he said, soon after Lok Sabha was adjournment till 6 pm following the BJP MPs placing bundles of currency notes in the well of the House and alleging they were bribed.

“BJP wanted to disrupt the proceedings. So they came up with these allegations that its MPs were bribed by a SP leader,” senior Congress leader Jayanti Natarajan said.

MY VIEWS

The BJP and BSP knew that the UPA is going to win the TRUST VOTE, so they planted a drama to destroy the image of the UPA Congress Government.. 3 BJP MPs brought 1 Crore cash into the central well of Lok Sabha and kept it in the table of the deputy speaker and started empting it saying they were offered those money to abstain from voting by SP members. The 3 MPs included in this “money for vote” operation was Ashok Argal, Mahavir Bhagora, and Faggan Singh Kulaste.


THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR IS:


a) IF THEY HAVE PROOF THEN THEY MUST SHOW IT TO THE PEOPLE OF INDIA..
b) WHERE IS THE TAPE WHICH HAS THE PROOF ???
c) IF THE WHOLE INCIDENT WAS PLANTED THEN WE MAY CONCLUDE THAT THE BJP FOR HIS           OWN GOOD OR FOR HIS OWN INTEREST CAN DO ANYTHING…
d) SHOULD THE PEOPLE OF INDIA VOTE FOR BJP AND BSP IN THE NEXT ELECTION…
e) IF IT IS PROOFED THAT THE INCIDENT WAS PLANTED WILL THE 3 BJP MPS BE PUNISHED…
