( July 27, 2014, New Delhi, Sri Lanka Guardian) As an out come of Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan held at Ramnathi in June last under the initiative of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and obviously as a resultant of Alternative Hindutva Movement initiated by small Hindu Orgs without any affiliation from their big brothers, the demand of a Hindu State in Bharat is being surfaced in India gradually. And now it has been triggered by the Indian law makers of ruling party in Goa and in the central political arena.
Cooperation Minister of Goa, Dipak Dhavalikar on Thursday (24 July 2014) appeared eloquent by saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi will develop India into a Hindu nation.
“I am confident that under the leadership of Modiji, India will develop into a Hindu nation. PM will work in this regard is what I feel,” he said while speaking in the state assembly on a motion congratulating Modi on Bharatiya Janata Party’s electoral victory.
While Congress, the opposition in Goa wanted to condemn the matter on Friday in the Assembly, Deputy chief minister, Francis D’Souza said, “India is already a Hindu nation and all Indians in Hindustan are Hindus”.
As a reaction Congress staged walkout in Goa assembly over ‘Hindu Rashtra’ remark on Friday.
Defending the comments of his cabinet colleague Deepak Dhavalikar who said that Modi could make the country a ‘Hindu nation’, Francis D’Souza told reporters: “It was always a Hindu nation and will always be a Hindu nation. You don’t have to create a Hindu nation.”
D’Souza, one of the most senior minority members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa, said that he considered himself a “Christian Hindu”.
“India is a Hindu country. It is Hindustan. All Indians in Hindustan are Hindus, including I — I am a Christian Hindu,” D’Souza said.
Dhavalikar triggered a national controversy on Thursday while speaking during a motion congratulating Narendra Modi on becoming Prime Minister.
“If we all support it and we stand by Narendra Modi systematically, then I feel a Hindu Rashtra will be established,” Dhavalikar had said.
But, D’Souza insisted that Dhavalikar had no “clarity in his mind” because India was already a Hindu Nation. And D’Souza tried a click to over rule the establishment of a Constitutionally recognized Hindu Rashtra in Bharat by saying,”You don’t have to create a Hindu Nation”.
While contacted Upananda Brahmachari, the editor of most spreading Hindu website, 'Struggle For Hindu Existence' and a prominent Hindutva exponent in Delhi to have his viewpoint, he remarked that the “Hinduness of Mr D’Souza is most welcome. He is a Nationalist person in BJP, but he must look into the demand of one billion Hindus for a ‘constitutionally recognized’ Hindu Rashtra (Nation-State) in Bharat”.
“There are recognized 100+ Christian States; 50+ Islamic States; 10+ Buddhist States and even reasonably One Jew state in this world; then why not a single recognized Hindu State on this earth? Unless and until India is not considered Constitutionally as a Hindu Rashtra and be recognized by UN and Other Nations, what is the utility of this big talk of ‘India is already a Hindu nation’ etc?”, said Brahmachari from Delhi.
Further he told this reporter that, in a Hindu Rashtra rights and honor of every body will be safe. But, there will be not a single case of unjustified humiliation of Hindu saints, Hindu Temple, Hindu scripture. There will be no poverty, no riot, no cow slaughter and not a single conversion.
Practically India was cheated in the division of India on Two Nation (Hindu-Muslim) Theory. Muslims got Pakistan as an ultimate Muslim State, then why Bharat was not declared as a Virtual Hindu State?, Brahmachari put this point very emphatically.
Brahmachari justified the establishment of a Hindu Rashtra as demanded by the minister of Goa, Deepak Dhavalikar and urged everybody concerned including the Deputy CM of Goa to make a high pitch to establish a real Hindu Rashtra (Nation-state) in Bharat. He further added that “Hindus must start a fresh struggle and freedom movement for a Hindu Rashtra in Bharat setting aside all secular and communal menace. And a highest sacrifice is needed for this divine duty for our Mother Land”.
Brahmachari categorically pointed out: India is already a Hindu nation, now make it constitutionally and internationally valid Hindu Rashtra.
On the other hand, opposition leader in Goa and Congress MLA, Pratapsingh Rane criticized Dhavalikar's controversial statement and made it as an object in of sharp attack. Congress Party of Goa demanded a clarification from him in the state assembly.
As Speaker Rajendra Arlekar refused to entertain their demand, Congress MLAs staged a walkout.
Later, Leader of Opposition Pratapsingh Rane termed Dhavalikar's statement as violative of the Constitution.
"As a minister, he has taken an oath bearing faith and allegiance to the Constitution which says India is a secular country. He has violated the Constitution," Rane said.
But, Constitutional experts in India express their view point very critically as the 'Secular' and 'Socialist' dogma in Indian constitution is not originally introduced in Indian Constitution as accepted in 1950. Off late the term 'Secular' and 'Socialist' were corroborated in Indian Constitution through 42 amendment in 1977.
