If India can be made a ‘secular’ nation through an amendment, then why can’t India become a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ through such an amendment? Therefore, to demand Hindu Rashtra is a constitutional right of Hindus. The politicians created the bogey of Hindu Terror. On this occasion, I urge everyone to contribute to the Reinstatement of Dharma by offering their thoughts, skills, time, body and mind”.

2. Kolhapur District Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Shri. Kiran Dsse said, “Hindu Rashtra should be established since this country belongs to Hindus. Through this Dindi, all people have come together towards the goal of Hindu Rashtra. Hindus should make efforts to stop the ongoing attacks on Hindu Dharma and the nation. ”
