RSS-affiliated outfit Samajik Samrasta Manch Wednesday organised a gathering in Gujarat’s Una, where a resolution condemning the recent flogging of Dalits as “hooliganism in the name of gau raksha” was passed.

The resolution was passed in the presence of more than 60 religious leaders and Dalit leaders, including members of ‘Una Dalit Hit Rakshak Samiti’, which was formed after the flogging incident.

The resolution read out during the event said, “Atrocities against innocent persons in the name of gau raksha is an anti-social crime. The government should take strict action against such people.”

RSS’s Sanghchalak for the western region Dr Jayantibhai Bhadeshiya said in his address, “Such an incident happened due to some people working to divide the Hindus. The entire community was shaken and youth were forced to consume poison. Samajik samrasta is the only solution.”

Asked if the event was organised with an eye on the 2017 Assembly polls, he said, “If this was the case, we would have organised the event in Gandhinagar or Ahmedabad or Delhi. The sants have come here with ganga jal to remove the blot caused by the incident on Una’s land.”

Atmanand Saraswati from Botad said, “After the Una incident, several political parties visited this place. Those trying to use this issue for their political interests are enemies of mother India. BJP, Congress or AAP, no one is concerned about the suicides, they have no pain and empathy.”

He added: “Dalits are our brothers, mothers and sisters, Dalits are also made by the same God.”

A number of religious leaders asked the Dalits to stay away from liquor. “The first lesson for Dalit community is to stay away from addiction. It will end your community, you will become a minority. If some political party hands you money or liquor during elections, do not accept that.”

Yogiji Maharaj from Kutch said, “During elections, political parties come with bottles of liquor and seek votes. Priests would tell you not to get into that trap. We have not come here to promote any party.”

Referring to the Bulandshahr rape incident, he said: “Four days ago, a mother and her daughter were raped in Noida, only 40 km away from Delhi. No one went there to show sympathy. But they reached here, about 1500 km from Delhi. The truth is that they all came for votes.”

Parmatamananda Saraswati from Rajkot requested Dalits to not resort to conversions or suicides. “We priests are very pained by such acts. These are not solutions.”

        This is scary. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The fact that there is a brutal movement in Christianity that legitimizes child abuse in the name of Christian God. One story involves a judge whi,pping his daughter with a belt on a YouTube clip that has gone viral. The other involves books by Christian Evangelical leaders on child spanking, even beating and molesting.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;But what many people don’t seem to realize is that in the Christian Evangelical alternative universe of the home school movement, tightly knit church communities and the Christian cult following of a number of big time leaders and authors, physical punishment and Child abuses of children has been glorified for years.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As a story in the New York Times illustrates — “Preaching Virtue of Spanking, Even as De.aths Fuel Debate” — a famous Evangelical author and his co-author wife, Michael and Debi Pearl, are being tied to several de.aths of children killed by parents alleged to be using the Pearls’ “methods” advocated in their book To Train Up a Child.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And according to ABC News, a prominent Texas judge who was filmed be.ating his disabled daughter with a belt and cursing at her said he was merely disciplining his child in the name of his Christian God and did nothing wrong.

          Se.x.ually enslaving kids: A Muslim-world problemlt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;If you thought the terrible s.ex-slave scandal in the English city of Rotherham was an exception you'd be sadly wrong. Muslim groups all over the world have been committing similar atr0cities, ignored by mainstream media. No body in Indian media has the courage to talk about Islamic atr0cities.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As shocking as the Muslim-run se.x ring in Rotherham, England, may seem to some—1,400 British children as young as 11 pIied with dru.gs before being ped around and s.e.x.ually abused in cabs and kabob shops—the fact is that this phenomenon is immensely widespread. In the United Kingdom alone, it’s the fifth s.e..x abuse ring led by Muslim gangs to be uncovered.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Some years back in Australia, a group of Lebanese Muslim youths were responsible for a series of bru.tal gang ra.pes of Anglo-Celtic teenage girls. A few years later in the same country, four Muslim stani brothers rap.ed at least 18 Australian women, some as young as 13. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Even in the United States, a gang of Somalis were responsible for abd.ucting, buying, selling, rapg and t0rturing young American girls as young as 12.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The answer is a centuries-long, continents-wide account of nonstop se.x.ual predation. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Thus in the countries, where Muslims make for a sizeable—and notable—minority, the systematic rape of “subhuman infidels” naturally takes place. But when caught, Muslim minorities, being under “infidel” authority, cry “Islamophobia” and feign innocence.

            Jihadi's which have taken over our media have one single goal. Be anti-Hindu. They know that this way the muslims ruled India, the Christian Britishers who came as Christian traders ruled India. And by dividing India, muslims got together with CONgress and divided India. And finally CONgress ruled India by dividing Hindus. So now being losers they are licking their wounds. They cannot handle a Hindu PM who treats all Indians the same. No more SOPs to so called minorities. No more rampant conversion using foreign money. The numbers are staggering. 15,000 crores came from Church and Jihadi outfits in Saudi to convert and divide India. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Now the media funded by same Jihadi and Church want to go after BJP which was legitimately elected by Indians wants to overthrow an elected government using media. How can they do that. Keep coming out with some campaign after another campaign. First the Award Wapsi program from the psuedo intellectual elite who dont deserve those awards in the first place. But to thank CONgress for giving them awards they dont deserve they made a big news. So how did they stop returning their awards? Did they return the money also with interest what they got as part of award? You will be surprised to know it is a BIG NO. Then asking Dawood controlled Bollywood jihadi muslim stars like Aamir Khan and SRK to say there was intolerance. That backfired. Aamir wanted to move to America but if Donald Trump comes to power he will ban Aamir but allow his wife to move to America. So the only logical option Aamir has to move to stan. SRK can anyday move to stan since he is from Pashtun area. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Now they want to go after RSS. Everything is RSS's fault. Really moron. You think the people are stupid. Remember if there is a backlash everything will be muslim's fault which you dont want to happen. Dont start these jihadi campaigns.
