VHP general secretary Dr Pravin Togadia criticised the West Bengal Government for announcing 10 per cent reservation for Muslims in the state despite the fact that the Andhra Pradesh High Court quashed the state Government’s unconstitutional move to grant 4 per cent quota to Muslims in education, jobs and so on. “For an eye-wash the West Bengal government has shown that these reservations would be for socially, educationally and economically backward Muslims and OBCs in Muslims. This is all twisting the Constitution and exploiting the hard-working Hindus. Majority Hindus from middle class, higher middle class and other working/business class work hard and pay taxes. Instead of giving benefit of this money to poor Hindus-Scheduled Castes, OBCs and Vanvasis, the government is all out to use this money to subsidise Muslims who do not even limit number of children quoting religion. This is not only unfair to Hindus but also is a criminal looting of Hindus,” Dr Togadia said in a statement issued in New Delhi on February 8.
He termed the Sachar and Rangnath Misra reports as “preparation for criminal looting of Hindus. “Andhra’s 4 per cent quota, Sachar and Rangnath reports and now West Bengal giving 10 per cent reservation to Muslims are not sporadic isolated incidents. They are well connected and are part of a larger conspiracy against Hindus. This criminal conspiracy of looting Hindus is being hatched to please and appease Muslim vote bank. Today Union government also announced that youth from PoK would be encouraged to come to J&K and would be given special facilities. At this moment 78 per cent Hindu youth in Bharat are unemployed, 79 per cent Hindu farmers have already lost their lands/crops and most are about to commit suicides, 68 per cent Hindu children are malnourished. Yet, instead of helping them, governments are showering favours on Muslims. This is not acceptable to Hindus,” he said.
Dr Togadia said the Hindus are being exploited in every field like education, employment, bank loans, trade facilities, housing and so on. “From Inheritance Act to Marriage Act, all laws are only to trouble Hindus. Essential food costs have gone so high that even well-to-do middle class families are no more able to feed their children even a cup of milk daily and now there is Muslim reservation burden on the Hindus. Hindus have reached their limit of patience and without waiting for anyone to lead; Hindus would hit the streets any moment against this continued injustice. Muslims claim that they are no more just a simple minority; but they are ‘the second largest majority in India (as Jamait-e-ulema-e-Hind’s Maulana Madani says) and yet governments are bent on giving them facilities and reservations snatching education, employment, loans and lives of Hindus,” the statement said.
He termed the move unconstitutional and expressed concern that this would encourage not just conversions but also jehadi incidents. He said, “Those who argue that Muslims are poor in Bharat and therefore they turn to jehad, are living in a fool’s paradise. Pilots, engineers, professionals from well-to-do families are following jehad as a lifestyle based on madarsa preaching. If they are poor they do jehad by bomb and when they get rich or educated they use planes, computers against Bharat. Therefore, it will help governments to get all Hindus to avail of education, employment, trade facilities instead of wasting Hindu taxpayer’s money on inspiring jehad. When majority develops, the nation automatically develops. Those who do not even follow Bharat’s Constitution should not be given an opportunity to misuse Bharat’s democracy and Constitution for increasing their population to ‘minoratise’ Hindus.”
