Udupi, Oct 26: “Clandestine efforts are currently being made to split the society on the lines of Ahinda, minority, caste etc. ‘Dharma Sansad’ being held here from November 24 to 26 has to be driven by the aim of finding political solution to foil such efforts, address lacunae in Hinduism, and achieve the social aim of achieving unity,” opined regional president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, MB Puranik.
He was speaking at a programme organized here on Wednesday October 25 for setting the campaign vehicle, ‘Sudharma Ratha’ connected with Dharma Sansad rolling.
“Dharma Sansad should be able to deliver a strong message to those who criticize Hinduism. The time is now ripe for bringing in political and social transformation. By taking part in the proposed ‘Dharma Sansad’ in large numbers, Hindus should showcase the power of Hinduism,” he stated.
Advocate, Praveen Poojary, who initiated the Rath Yatra, mentioned about the claims being made by intelligentsia about the non-existence of God and religions. He felt that the ‘Dharma Sansad’ should be able to give them a befitting reply. He called upon Hindus from various parts of the country to congregate in Udupi and take part in the said programme in large numbers.
In his introductory address, regional convener of Bajrang Dal, Sharan Pumpwell, said that already campaign meetings have been held in this connection in over 250 places covering nine taluks of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada districts, adding that these programmes have received tremendous response.
