After ‘Dharam Sansad’, Sadhus at ‘Sant Sammelan’ spew venom against Muslims

By Special Correspondent

New Delhi: Emboldened by the government’s soft stance, pro-RSS sadhus (Hindu monks) reared their heads yet again and spewed venom against Muslims. On Saturday, at a gathering called as “Sant Sammelan” in Allahabad, they passed three offensive resolutions urging that the government declare India a “Hindu Rashtra” and introduce the “death sentence” for religious conversion organizers and stop usage of ‘minority’ term.

One of the conveners of the event even threatened that if the two people arrested in connection with the Haridwar hate assembly (Dharma Sansad) were not released within a week, there is a possible bombing of an “Assembly”

A senior monk admitted that Sant Sammelan was a Dharma Sansad by another name.

The 400 sadhus in attendance agreed to add “Hindu Rashtra” to “India” in their writings and communications from now on.

They urged that the Narendra Modi regime in Delhi and Yogi Adityanath’s government in Uttar Pradesh prohibit the usage of the terms “minority” and “majority.”

The event was planned to coincide with the annual, month-long Magh Mela, which began on January 14, saw three resolutions ratified.

* Declare India a Hindu Rashtra.

* Declare all religious conversions a “rarest of the rare” crime, with capital punishment introduced for the organisers.

*Release Yati Narasinghanand Saraswati and Waseem Rizvi aka Jitendra Narayan Tyagi from jail.

“If Narasinghanand and Tyagi are not released within a week, we will organise a massive demonstration across the country,” said Narendra Anand Giri, one of the Sant Sammelan’s conveners.

He then made an odd comparison between the gathered sadhus and Bhagat Singh, the revolutionary freedom fighter who bombed the Central Legislative Assembly in Delhi in 1929 in defiance of a British law.

“If the government delays their release, an incident like the bombing of the Assembly could occur, since we are prepared to become Bhagat Singh,” Giri added.

“I don’t know anything other than that India was partitioned on the basis of religion and that we are already a Hindu Rashtra,” Giri stated when reminded that Bhagat Singh was on the opposite end of the political spectrum from Hindu Rashtra advocates as an atheist and socialist.

The Haridwar incident sparked protests in India and overseas, with petitioners asking the Supreme Court to intervene, allowing them to apply to local authorities to prevent similar Dharma Sansads from occurring elsewhere.

Because of the uproar, Anand Swaroop, a Haridwar-based sadhu who had previously planned a Dharma Sansad in Allahabad on January 22 and 23, claimed the name had been changed to “Sant Sammelan.”

He went on to say that the event had been postponed at the suggestion of several sadhus who planned to visit Allahabad later for the Magh Mela.

Swaroop is one of a half-dozen people who have been questioned in connection with the Haridwar FIR. Despite the Supreme Court’s notice to the Uttarakhand government, just two of the eight accused of calling for Muslim genocide have been apprehended, with Anand Swaroop being one of them.

Narasinghanand, the mahant of the Dasna Devi temple in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, had organised the Dharma Sansad in Haridwar, Uttarakhand, on December 17-19, when he and several other speakers allegedly called for the genocide of Muslims in order to establish a Hindu Rashtra.

This latest belligerences of pro- RSS Sadhus can be seen in the light of ensuing assembly elections in UP as the ruling BJP is facing intense anti-incumbency wave.
