“The Citizenship Amendment Act is not opposed to anyone, then why oppose it?”: VHP

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) has termed the violent protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act-2019 as an anti-national, motivated condemnable act by pseudo-secularist vested interests. The International Secretary General of VHP Sri Milind Parande said that there is no harm to any Bharatiya by deporting foreign infiltrators out of the country and giving refuge in Bharat to refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan fleeing religious persecution there.

In spite of this logic of national interest, the violent demonstrations being carried out by some pseudo-secularists and self-seeking political parties by confusing, misleading and inciting the people under the policy of minority appeasement, and Rahul Gandhi’s empathy for Pakistani and Bangladeshi infiltrators, humiliation of Savarkar and  apathy towards persecuted Hindu refugees, are highly condemnable and dangerous.

He appealed to the state governments to take strict action against all the misguided frenzied elements and stop any kind of violence and save life, individual and national property. He said that no one must be allowed to attack railway stations, buses, government property, media and security personnel in the name of protests. It is extremely unfortunate that the governments of some states, opposing the country’s Citizenship Amendment Act passed by the Parliament and validated by the President of the country, remain only silent spectators in these violent demonstrations, whereas, constitutionally everyone should come forward to implement the Act.

VHP Secretary General Sri Parande also said that a sovereign democratic republic and its people must not equate the infiltrators/undercover agents coming from other sovereign nations with Ghazwa-e-Hind baggage and agenda with the refugees fleeing religious persecution. While on the one hand it is our national duty to protect the oppressed refugees (minorities) under the policy of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (‘The world is our family’), on the other hand, Rohingya Muslim infiltrators and Bangladeshi Muslim infiltrators from a majority Islamic country threaten the security of the country and also damage the image of Bharatiya Muslims; so all the Bharatiyas, including Bharatiya political parties, should help the government in addressing the situation in national interest.

Sri Parande also said that the humiliation of Swaatantrya Veer Savarkar by Rahul Gandhi to wage a war against the persecuted Hindu community and his empathy for the Ghazwa-e-Hind led Pakistani and Bangladeshi infiltrators is an absolutely condemnable and unforgivable act. Had there been even a speck of the sacrifice and patriotism of Savarkar ji in Sri Rahul Gandhi or his family, today their condition would not have been so pitiable.

The aware people of the country will definitely teach them a lesson for this gross insult to the great man of Bharat. The Vishva Hindu Parishad also appealed to the state governments and their police administrations to protect life, individual and national property and thereby ensuring law and order throughout the country.
