Hindu Sangama has never caused communal unrest: Jagadish Karanth

Kundapur: India is the mother land of Hindus. It is unfortunate that the concept of Hindu Rashtra has become a matter of controversies. The situation is so worse that Hindus cannot celebrate their festivals, cannot ask for their rights and cannot even perform religious practices. There is a need to create religious and social strength in Hindus. Hinduism is the nationality of India. He soul, life and selfness of India is Hinduism said Jagadish Karanth, convener of Hindu Jagarana Vedike.

He was speaking in the Virat Hindu Sangama organised as a part of 505 kalasha mass Shri Satyanarayana Pooja by Gangolli Hindu Jagarana Vedike on Saturday Feb.28 at government pre university college here.

Not even a single untoward incident being reported even after so many Hindu conferences held in various parts of the state. But recently in Shivamogga a meet by PFI led to communal violence in the region. This could have been averted by the government and the police department he said.

The decision of banning Hindu samajotsava and Praveen Bhai Togadia was not taken by the police department but it was done as per the orders from state government. State government is bias against one community and it doesn’t want unity in Hindu community he added.

Gracing the program seer of Vajradehi mutt in Gurupur Shri Rajashekarananda Swamiji said, there is a need to uproot all the caste system in Hindu religion and unite against the political conspiracy.


The program was presided over by Businessman from Ballary Kothwal Padmanabh Sherugar. President of Shrirama temple, Madi Shankar Kharvi, Gopal Ganiga Bengaluru, Umesh L. Mesta, Gangolli village municipal President Reshma R Kharvi were present.  

A grand an colourful procession was taken from near Shri Rama temple in Gangolli to Shri Veerashaiva temple.

BJP-led NDA Government pursuing communal agenda: Sudheeran

Thiruvananthapuram: Accusing the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre of pursuing communal agenda, KPCC President V M Sudheeran on Tuesday said that it has stooped to such a level that now it had insulted Mother Teresa.

Narendra Modi's Government was supporting and encouraging Sangh parivar-led 'communal forces' and 'insulting' Mother Teresa (by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat) was the latest result of that, he said here after a meeting of KPCC.

The BJP leaders were only trying to escape by simply issuing statements against such incidents, he said, adding, that their objective was to gain political mileage from the situation.

Criticising the economic policies of the NDA Government, he said KPCC would start its second phase of agitation against the Centre on March 24.
