Allahabad, Aug 23 (UNI) Dissatisfied over the government's stand on the Amarnath issue, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) president Ashok Singhal today said issues related to Hindu sentiments could not be resolved through conferences or negotiations and Hindu society would itself decide it's fate over it.

Talking to mediapersons here, Mr Singhal said the secular and democratic structure has totally failed and needed to be redesigned.

Criticising the Central and Jammu government over the Amarnath land row, he said nearly four lakh Hindus in the valley were living an insecure and stressful life and the governments were busy in appeasement of minorities.

''This is not the issue of Jammu or Hindus based in Jammu, this is the matter of concern for the Hindus in the country,'' he said adding agitations were going on and would continue until their demands were met.

He purported that 84 per cent of population of the country was Hindu, thus, making it obvious for them to hold the monopoly. He further demanded that Ganga and Ramsethu should be announced as national heritage.

He said the government spent Rs 3.5 to four crore on Haz pilgrims and Amarnath pilgrims did not even get basic facilities like drinking water. ''The government must provide the Hindu pilgrims with best facilities soon,'' he asserted.
