In Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh, a huge public demonstration has been organized by the Hindu society in protest against the increasing conversion in the state. After this protest, thousands of Hindus present took out a foot march from the protest site at Lakhenagar to the 600-year-old Baijnath temple. A memorandum was also submitted in the name of the Governor after this huge anti-conversion rally under the aegis of Sarva Sanatan Hindu Mahapanchayat. In which a demand has been made to take strict action against the missionaries who misled the economically backward people and got them converted. Along with this, a demand has also been made to make strict laws against those who promote love jihad in the form of organized crime in the state.
In the memorandum submitted to Governor Anasuiya Uikey, it has been said that from almost every division of Chhattisgarh news related to conversion has been coming to the fore on a regular basis . By showing the greed of money and other things, large-scale conversions are being done in the state. All these are aimed at changing the demography within this peaceful region. The memorandum also mentions the increasing cases of love jihad in the state. Accusing some organizations and regional religious leaders of promoting love jihad as an organized crime, there has been a demand for strict laws on it at the earliest. Referring to the anti-conversion law made in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh in the memorandum, the Sarva Sanatan Hindu Mahapanchayat has demanded similar provisions in Chhattisgarh too.
Apart from this, there has been a demand by the protesters to constitute a committee at the district level to look after the conversions. It has also been said that strict legal action should be taken against the community and people, who promote conversion by spreading fallacy against the sanatan dharma. A group of youths involved in the protest, also raised slogans against the campaigns being run on social media targeting Hinduism. During this, they also raised slogans in favor of Anshul Saxena to raise his voice in favor of Sanatan Dharma.
Thousands of citizens of Hindu society were present in this huge foot march, which included youth, women, men, women, and elderly. It should be noted that protests are being held in different cities of the state against the increasing conversion in Chhattisgarh. Just last week, under the aegis of Hindu Yuva Manch in Durg, youth took out a huge rally against conversion.
