RSS will not stop its protest against government over the demolition of temples in Rajasthan


Posted on 7th Jul 2015 11:14 am by rohit kumar verma

Deadlock between the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh facing disapproval for too little too late over teh demolition of jaipur temple and the Vasundhara Raje led BJP Government sticking to its plan of bringing the state capital to a halt. The Sangh is backing Hindu organisations’ call for a two-hour ‘chakka jam’ on Thursday to protest against the demolition of temples in the Walled City.

 

 

However, caught napping on an issue considered to be at the core of its political ideology, the RSS has come in for criticism from the opposition congress as well as some Hindu organisations. Central to the entire temple demolition outrage is the frequent invocation of Jaipur as Chhoti Kashi (Little Kashi or Varanasi)—a city high on religious fervour and known for its age old temples.

 

 

Posters and pamphlets being distributed in the Walled City by various organisations are replete with exhortations of saving the city’s religious heritage.

 

 

one such pamphlet issued by Gulabi Nagar Virasat Bachao Sangharsh Samiti said that the RSS got so angry over a BJP spokesperson’s Facebook post questioning Z+ security for Mohan Bhagwat that they had him removed. But why were they silent when temples were being demolished by their own government. And asked “Court orders on public smoking, cellphone towers, ban on polythene continue to be flouted. Are court orders only to be enforced when it comes to temples?”

 

 

However, responding to criticism over its delayed reaction, RSS sources said the organisation was serious about dealing with the “state-sponsored destruction of Hindu heritage”.

 

 

RSS sources said the organisation was serious about dealing with the “state-sponsored destruction of Hindu heritage.Last month, the Sangh was busy holding a training camp and so had deputed the Vishva Hindu Parishad to talk to the government. Once the training camp concluded, it was felt that the VHP had not been able to break any ground with the government so we decided to step in.

 

 

However a BJP source said “People have not really protested against the demolition of these temples. If they had, the administration would not have been able to do it with such ease in the first place. The Sangh has found a ready opportunity in this issue to take on Raje,”

 

 

 

"while neglecting the reports about party MLA participating in strike Health Minister Rajendra Rathore sad that We will soon find a resolution through talks and mutual coordination.
