Addressing the gathering, general secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti Swami Jitendranand Saraswati said Hindus by nature are very patient and cool but their patience should not be tested for long. VHP joint general secretary Dr Surendra Jain said the manner in which violent demonstrations and attacks on Hindus were organised at various places of the country in the name of fake ‘mob lynching’ incident indicates a serious conspiracy to defame
the Hindus and the country.

Hindus are the real victims of ‘mob lynching’: VHP
New Delhi: Vishwa Hindu Parishad on July 8 said a section of the journalists, politicians and Jihadi elements seems to be conspiring to instigate riots against Hindus. In a statement, joint general secretary of VHP Dr Surendra Jain said the way ‘so-called mob lynching’ incidents have been exaggerated and highlighted in recent past, goes far to prove that the Khan Market gang and politicians of the secular mafia, seem to be busy in instigating the Muslim community for a violent attack on Hindus. He said in the Tabrez Ansari incident of Jharkhand it is now clear that the death did riot take place because of public beating. Despite that Muslims organised huge demonstrations in Surat, Ranchi, Bhopal and other cities raising anti-Hindu and anti-national slogans, and even attacked the security forces. Temples were attacked and their idols desecrated in many places. It's a very shameful act of instigation towards Hindus.
The way lies are being propagated against the Hindu community and Hindu organisations, it seems the whole exercise is politically motivated. It was falsely portrayed that Muslims were beaten up for not saying, "Jai Shri Ram' in places like Gurugram, Begusarai, Karim Nagar, Delhi, Cooch Behar, Kanpur etc. Despite these allegations having been proved false, there was no clarification forthcoming on it, which proves the malicious intent of those people, he added.
The way 5-6 incidents, all half-truths, were falsely used as propaganda material to fuel anti-Hindu and an anti-national atmosphere, seems to be a part of a larger anti-national conspiracy. The whole world knows that Hindus are peace-loving and patient. If it was not a peace-loving community, then one can well guess the kind of reaction, the desecration of Hindu temples could have wrought. The VHP wants to know from the journalists and politicians how they and the so-called minorities would have reacted if the mosques were targets of attacks instead of the temples?
The VHP released a list of some incidents to unveil the conspiracy and prove that Hindus are the real victims of mob lynchings. Wasn't the genocide of Kashmiri Hindus an act of lynching? The dastardly killing of Gau Rakshak Arun Mahore in Agra, Dhruv Tyagi, who was publicly lynched by Muslims while trying to save the honour of his daughter in Delhi, Ankit Saxena, who was sawed to death in the national capital are examples of mob lynching. Why these incidents fail to arouse their compassion? Why do the journalists, who have transformed Dadri into a ‘pilgrimage’, maintain a stoic silence on the mob lynching of Hindus?
