International Working President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad Shri Alok Kumar said that the medieval concept of jihad is spreading hatred and vitiating the harmony of the Bharatiya society. These are serious challenges to world peace and humanity, which the civilised societies of the whole world together will have to resist no matter what the cost may be!
Shri Kumar also demanded that the police quickly completes investigations, a fast-track court should hear the Udaipur murder case and in a period of six months the victim’s family should be given justice by hanging the assassins till death. He said this during a demonstration held at Shri Krishna Leela Sthal at Lalla Market, Bareilly, that the Udaipur assassination is the result of mazhabi psychosis. The way a section of Islam understands and identifies with ‘Jihad’ is particularly treacherous and fatal. It feels that it is religiously sanctioned to attack, to slaughter and plunder non-Islamic people. The abduction and rape of women is Maal-e-Ghanimat. Due to such inhuman concepts, violence and unrest have been spreading in many parts of the world.
The VHP leader said that some Islamic organisations may have condemned the Udaipur incident, but as long as such concepts of Jihad continue to be promoted and spread, there will be neither peace nor communal harmony anywhere in the world. Governments will treat them as matters of law and order and act accordingly, but this is an ideological war that the entire civilised societies around the world cherishing human values, human rights, human dignity and the dignity of women have to fight. They have to raise their voice.
Shri Alok Kumar also called upon the right-thinking Muslims to raise these issues. They will also have to ensure that the madrasas are not used as nurseries of terrorism. He also said that VHP and Bajrang Dal would continue to be at the forefront for the safety and security of society and valiantly combat violence any anti-national activities.
