Prayagraj: The Central Management Committee and Board of Trustees of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) that met at Prayagraj Kumbh on January 17 strongly condemned the inhuman atrocities perpetrated on the Ayyappa devotees by the Left Front Government of Kerala. It called upon the Hindu society to carry out a nationwide agitation against the oppression and join the agitation in full force. Along with the Central Management and Board of Trustees meeting, some other meetings of the VHP were also organised and RSS Sarkaryavah Shri Bhaiyaji Joshi joined some of them.
 
A resolution passed at the meeting on Sabarimala issue said, “A perception has developed that the Left Front Government of Kerala, in connivance with jihadists, left front goons and local administration, has been committing atrocities on the Ayyappa devotees. The VHP is of the opinion that the judiciary and the government should refrain from interfering in the Hindu traditions and beliefs.”
 
The VHP and saints applauded the struggle being carried out by various Hindu organisations including the Ayyappa devotees, Hindu women, NSS, KPMS, SNDP, Arya Samaj, etc. “The struggle for Sabarimala today has reached the level of Ayodhya movement,” the resolution added.



 
“The Christians set the temple on fire in 1950. Then they put up a cross on the temple land in 1982. Now Muslim women made a human wall against Sabarimala. All these incidents show the depth of the conspiracy. The Government of Kerala has also started a tirade against the Ayyappa devotees in the name of the judiciary. Five devotees have sacrificed their lives in this struggle and more than 15,000 have been arrested by being implicated in more than 5000 false cases. Lakhs of Ayyappa devotees are trying to save the ancient tradition of the temple through demonstrations and creating human walls. But the Government of Kerala insulted their faith by pushing the non-believers into the temple at night,” the resolution added.
 
In another resolution on conspiracies to break the unity of the Hindu society, the VHP said conspiracies are repeatedly hatched by Islamists, church and left outfits to divide the Hindu society. Now some political parties and other organisations have also joined these conspiracies for vested interests. “It is sometimes in the name of religion in Mumbai, other times in Gujarat or Koregaon, Saharanpur and Patthalgarhi under different names. All these incidents show there is a great conspiracy to divide the Hindu society along religious and communal lines,” the resolution introduced by Shri Jagganath Sahi from Bokaro and seconded by Shri Ajit Jena from Guwahati, said.
 
The VHP called upon the Hindu society not be misguided by any conspiracy and counter all the game plans. There is a need to be vigilant against the political parties which are trying to divide the society for their political gains. “Great sages like Maharshi Valmiki ji, Sant Ravidas ji, Guru Nanakdev ji, Ramanujacharya ji, Ramanandacharya ji, Narayana Guru ji, etc. have always made efforts for the unity of the Hindu society. The Hindus join all the Kumbhs and other festivals irrespective of any difference of caste, creed, etc. and they have also in the past foiled all conspiracies to weaken the Hindu society,” the resolution added.
