VHP has submitted a memoranda to the President, Governors/LGs at several capitals and to DMs demanding a high-level investigation into the gruesome Palghar incident, arrest and exemplary punishment to the culprits at the earliest.
New Delhi, April 28, 2020 – The nation, enraged by the brutal mass murder of venerable saints and their driver at Palghar, today lighted a lamp and paid its Shraddanjali to the Sadhus on the call given by VHP, Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha and All India Sant Samiti.
Numerous Akhadas, monasteries, temples, Ashrams, Gurudwaras and Jain Sthanaks, houses and business centres, etc., across India offered Diya-tributes to the immortal martyrs of Palghar, while fully observing the COVID-19 lockdown protocol. Everyone who was part of the Shraddanjali have reiterated the demand for the harshest of punishment for the culprits. The VHP in a press release has also demanded the strictest punishment to the culprits.
Offering his tribute by lighting a lamp at the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) headquarters in South Delhi, VHP's Central Secretary General Sri Milind Parande said that it is very unfortunate that many killers of the venerable saints in this country of Sadhu-Sants and Himalayan spiritual traditions are roaming in the open even on the 13th day of the killing.
The whole of India, by lighting a lamp in the name of the saints has given the message of immense unity of Hindu society and it should not be taken lightly. Our true tribute will be the immediate arrest and harsh punishment of the actual killers and their masterminds, he said. Also, the Hindu society always stands by the principle that no innocent person should be punished.
Shri Parande said that the anti-Hindu wicked and malevolent activities by the communist political and non-political organizations along with the Christian missionaries have been inciting the innocent tribal brethren to violence in many places of the country including Palghar district. The heinous killings of Pujya Shri Shantikali Ji Maharaj in Tripura and Pujya Swami Laxmananand Ji Maharaj in Odisha were the results of such violent propensities on the parts of the said outlandish forces.
The VHP additionally submitted a memoranda addressed to the President of Bharat and also to the Governors/LGs at several capitals of States/UTs and to DMs at district headquarters. The memorandum demanded a high-level investigation into the gruesome Palghar incident, arrest of the killers and their masterminds and exemplary punishment to them at the earliest.
