Sanatan Sanstha propagates Spirituality, not violence ! – Chetan Rajhans, Sanatan Sanstha

Plan of anti-Dharma elements is to impose a ban on Sanatan Sanstha by declaring arrested Hindutvavadis as seekers of Sanatan !

Mumbai – Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad has arrested some Hindutvavadis over past few days. Some so-called progressives, organisations and political leaders such as that of Congress, etc. are making false propaganda that all those arrested are seekers of Sanatan. In this regard, Sanatan Sanstha has clarified its role time and again; and we wish to reiterate that, none of these individuals is a seeker of Sanatan Sanstha. In fact, we have heard the names of 5 of them (Kalaskar, Andhure, Surale brothers, Rege) for the first time. So, unnecessarily do not try to connect them to Sanatan.

Sanatan Sanstha is an organisation which is propagating Spirituality in a constitutional manner; its teachings are in no way connected to violence. Few of the arrested Hindutvavadi activists did participate at local levels in various programmes conducted by the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti for uniting Hindus, but they also worked through the medium of other organisations. And, now just because they are arrested, demanding a ban on Sanatan or ‘arrest the head of Sanatan’ is ridiculous ! It is as good as demanding a ‘ban on Congress’ or ‘arrest Rahul Gandhi’, if leader of a party supporting Congress is arrested. Although all progressive leaders are targeting a minor spiritual organisation like Sanatan Sanstha which is propagating Spirituality, their real objective is to defame the BJP Government in the name of Hindu terrorism in view of the forthcoming elections.

All the allegations hurled at Sanatan Sanstha are based on the information allegedly sought from ATS and CBI which is meant to be ‘information sought from reliable sources’. In fact, the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad clarified in a press conference held by it that they had not named any particular organisation. The Police investigation is in its primary stage. We are at loss to understand the source behind all these news ! When not a single investigation agency has officially named Sanatan Sanstha, it is extremely painful to endure the defamation of Sanatan Sanstha. Therefore, we request you the media to disseminate correct news. You should realise that thousands of seekers and lakhs of well-wishers are facing defamation in the society due to these unverified reports and news items. Similarly, to stop the defamation, Sanatan Sanstha has perforce decided to lodge defamation suits on the false accusations made on the basis of unofficial information.

Sanatan Sanstha has emerged as the institution which is undertaking the radiant mission of propagating Dharma, continuously for the past 27 years. The tremendous support received from people and its speedy expansion in a short span is an acknowledgement of this radiant work. Nobody has ever witnessed a disorder in any of our programmes, or any disturbance to law and order situation due to us. Not a single offence has ever been registered against Sanatan Sanstha till date. This is because we not only give due respect to democracy, judiciary and law & order, but also abide by it. It is surprising to hold a spiritual organisation responsible for such a serious offence, that too without any evidence. This is nothing but injustice done to us. I request you to please stop this injustice.

Sanatan Sanstha is not named in any of the chargesheets filed in the cases such as Thane explosion, Margao explosion, the 4 murder cases, etc. Nowhere has Sanatan Sanstha been accused. You will find no reference that Sanatan Sanstha has indulged in any anti-national activity anywhere. In such a situation, it is totally mischievous and bereft of facts to demand the imposition of a ban on Sanatan Sanstha.

On one hand, the ATS asks the Court for Police remand of the arrested accused in order to investigate the underlying objectives, and on the other hand accusations are made about conspiracy to ‘bomb the Maratha agitation, indulge in terrorist activity during Bakri-Eid, raise an army of 500 trained activists’ etc., and these are spread all over through social media; this is a political conspiracy. The Government should also find out who is behind the spread of communal messages through the social media regarding this issue.

This is nothing but an effort to serve vested interests by defaming Hindutva since pro-Hindutva Government is in power and thereby squash the innocent organisation like Sanatan. This is a conspiracy of anti-Dharma elements to ‘call the dog rabid and shoot it’. We, therefore, request that the journalists should not fall prey to the conspiracy. Even in such a situation, we will make efforts to carry out Sanatan Sanstha’s mission of propagating Dharma with more vigour, speed and energy. Similarly, we have made a resolve that we will never let the ‘undeclared ban’ on Sanatan Sanstha become fruitful, stated Mr. Chetan Rajhans, National Spokesperson of Sanatan Sanstha at Press Conference held at ‘Mumbai Marathi Patrakar Sangha’, Mumbai. Mr. Sunil Ghanwat, Maharashtra and Chattisgarh State Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and Mr. Sagar Chopdar Mumbai Co-ordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti were present at the press conference.

Conspiracy to stop Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’s mission of uniting Hindus !

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti carries out the mission of uniting Hindus by imparting education on Dharma in the society. As a result, the work of uniting devout Hindu organisations who have various ideologies and working procedures is undertaken through the medium of Samiti. Therefore, organisations throughout the country are getting connected with each other. A large-scale movement is emerging to challenge the injustice done to Hindus by the effective unity of Hindus. Therefore, anti-Hindu powers are targeting Hindu Janajagruti Samiti to stop its mission. However, we are sure that Hindu community, which is witnessing the mission of Samiti to unite Hindus will not fall victim to the conspiracy, said Mr. Sunil Ghanwat, Maharashtra and Chattisgarh State Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
