New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) The BJP Delhi Pradesh Mahila Morcha today organised recital of Ramayan's sunderkand in various areas of the capital in protest against what they described as the 'anti Hindu' policies of the Government.
The activists of the BJP Mahila Morcha even burnt effigies of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi at many places.
Protests were held at Chandni Chowk (Fatehpuri Masjid), Mehrauli (Okhla More), Bawana (Sector-2, Rohini), Naveen Shahdara (Ambedkar Park), Shahdara (Chhachi Building), Karol Bagh (near Palam Cinema) and Najafgarh (Dabri More) etc.
Raising anti Government slogans, the protestors said that a Government which has denied the existence of Lord Ram and Krishna would meet its own death soon.
Speaking at the Chhachi Building Krishna Nagar, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Harsh Vardhan said that since the UPA Government came to power, attacks were being deliberately made against the recognised symbols and places of worships of the Hindus.
''Firstly this Government arrested Shankaracharya ji on the occasion of Deepawali. This arrest was done at the instance of Dr Manmohan Singh and Ms Sonia Gandhi. By making changes in the curriculum the Indian culture has been downgraded. This Government has also acted to divide the society by playing the game of reservation,'' he alleged.
''Now this Government has denied the very existence of Lord Ram worshipped by crores of Hindus. False affidavits were filed with the approval of the Central Government. The Central Government withdrew the affidavit in view of strong acrimony of the people.
Charging the UPA with refusing to accept the demands of the Hindus for apology from Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh and dismiss the related Ministers, he noted only ''small fish'' have been suspended. This will not compensate for the offended sentiments of the Hindus. This movement of the BJP will continue till the Government apologises,''the BJP Delhi Chief said.
