New Delhi, 6 June-2014(Indilens Web Team): The Hindu Rashtra Sena first came to public attention in 2007, when some of its members ransacked the offices of Star News in Mumbai to protest the television channel’s coverage of the elopement of a couple in Gujarat belonging to different communities. Last May, the group demonstrated outside the home of film actor Sanjay Dutt, demanding that he be hanged for his role in the Mumbai bomb blasts of 1993.
Hindu Rashtra Sena founder Dhananjay Jayram Desai, accused in Muslim techie murder, is a history-sheeter with 23 cases of extortion, rioting, and other crimes. Why wasn’t he in jail?
On one of its two Facebook pages, the Sena declares that Muslims and Christians cannot be truly Indian because “their Holyland is not the Hindusthan but Arabsthan and Rome”. But they could become Indian if “they abandon their faith in anti national religions like Islam and Christianity and also unless they embrace again their original religion from which they were forcibly converted to their present status”.
It adds, “We Hindus should militarize and industrialize ourselves. That is the only key for survival now…In army, navy and airforce, Hindus should have majority. In fact, the people with double faiths should not at all be allowed to enter Indian Military. This is the only way to keep ourselves safe.
An English daily DNA reported that Hindu Rashtra Sena has several branches in the state and majority of the branches are in the fringe villages of the city where the youth is easily attracted to their ideologies. Desai is known for making inflammatory speeches. Police found his name on the invitation card as a chief guest, immediately shot a notice to him and warned him not to make hateful speeches which can disturb the communal harmony in the society.
HRS also blamed for the assassination of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar .Various individuals and organisations have come out in condemnation of Dhananjay Desai and Hindu Rashtra Sena
Its really shame on Indian secularism ..What were the state and central govt was doing so far ? Why they failed to ban such organisations which is openly challenging the secularism ? silence of both govt shows their acceptance of such kinds of organisations which are terrorizing the minorities In India,,,Now the BJP govt in central should take immediate action to ban such organisations which causes violence and makes the lives of common people horrible.
