VHP claims Shudras are defeated Kashtriyas
Milli Gazette Online
New Delhi: The VHP has decided to give a new colour to Hinduism. It has declared that Shudras, the lowest in Hindu social hierarchy, were in fact Kshatriyas who are the second in Hindu social order after Brahmins. They said that Shudras were defeated in wars in the distant past and they were treated as low caste people by the upper castes.
The VHP called a meeting recently in Rohtak, Haryana in which a decision was taken to include Shudras in the category of
The meeting passed a resolution to create awakening among people against dowry system. According to Sangh organisations, VHP is spearheading a campaign to secure the support of Dalits by uplifting their status. In the last Lok Sabha elections low caste people had rejected BJP because they realised that BJP did not have sympathy with them and did not allow them to enter their temples.
The resolution demanded that the government should stop the policy of appeasement of minorities as it is coming in the way of enforcing a uniform civil code and population growth not being checked. The VHP has forwarded its agenda for 2005 to a high power decision making committee and demanded enactment of a law to make it binding to have only two children by a family. The meeting also demanded to identify illegal Bangladeshi and other illegal immigrants and deport them to their countries.
VHP’s contention for the rise in Muslim population is that they have misguided, seduced and converted Hindu girls to Islam. According to Senior VHP leader Giri Raj Kishore, Muslims misguide, seduce and convert nearly 1 lakh Hindu girls every year to Islam. The VHP has decided to take strong action against such people.
The meeting termed the arrest of Kanchi Shankaracharya as an international conspiracy and great insult to Hindus.
