150 Hindu outfits will meet in Goa from June 14 to 17 to discuss the possibility of turning India into a Hindu Rashtra by 2023. The conclave is organised by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) which is the sister outfit of Sanatan Sanstha.
Topics such as love jihad, religious conversions, protection of Hindu religious places, defamation of Hindu saints and change in the demography of population where local Hindus are being shunted out will be discussed at the four-day conclave. After the rise of Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, many Hindu outfits now want a Hindu Rashtra in India. A spokesperson from HJS hinted that the Hindu Rashtra will be based on the line of Chhatrapati Shivaji’s rule where all religions will be respected but not appeased. Chhatrapati Shivaji
The outfits have set 2023 as the deadline for which they want India to become a Hindu nation.
Dr Jayant Balajit Athavale, Psychiatrist who was the founder of Sanatan Sanstha also established HJS on October 7, 2002, with the sole aim of building a Hindu nation and protecting the Hindu culture. Sanatan Sanstha is the same organisation which was questioned with respect to the murder of rationalist activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar.
In 2013, Activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar known for the pursuit of Anti-Superstition and Eradication of Black Magic Bill was shot dead. His opponents described the bill as an anti-Hindu bill. In 2016 the Crime Branch of India (CBI) had arrested a man identified as Virendra Tawde, in association with both Sanatan Sanstha and HJS for Dr Dabholkar’s murder.
