SDPI condemns saffron brigade for forcible Agra conversions; urges NCM to look into entire conspiracy

By TCN News,

Bhopal: The Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has vehemently condemned the saffron brigade, which reportedly indulged in alleged forced conversions at Agra.

Around 300 Muslims were allegedly forced to convert into Hinduism at Agra earlier on Monday. However, a day later these families claimed they were tricked into conversion in an event couched as “homecoming ceremony”

SDPI national president A Sayeed said that such reports stoke fears of the rise of the Hindu right fringe, which has shown signs of assertiveness since the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Is RSS afraid of PM Modi’s independence and popularity? Or is the RSS trying to undermine PM Modi? It seems the other way around, may be PM is afraid of RSS,” Sayeed said in a statement.

Sayeed urged the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) to look into the entire conspiracy of forcible conversions by Sangh Parivar groups across India and take up cases under appropriate laws against its leaders, “who have been aiding and abetting this.” The NCM should direct the Ministry of Home Affairs to take tangible steps against this practice by the Sangh Parivar, he demanded.

Secular political parties are not willing to take communal forces head on for fear of losing “Hindu votes”. “The RSS has built up a violent and hate-filled atmosphere in the country that no one has dared to challenge. The RSS and its affiliates under the ‘patronage’ of the government are making concerted efforts to stir up hatred and communal conflagrations in various parts of the country but political parties’ meek response is disappointing,” the statement said.

He said the Sangh Parivar is apparently in a hurry and is taking advantage of the BJP’s ascendance to power to convert India into a Hindu Rashtra, an objective that would be resisted by all right-thinking people in the country.

Apparently, there appears to be a definite pattern and imprint in the violent incidents and designs to keep the minds of the minorities agitated and as such there is no hesitation in saying that the members of the ruling party and their patron organisations are responsible for this state of affairs, he said. “They have changed the tactics as low-intensity riots are taking place that do not attract international attention. He said Gujarat-like or anti-Sikh riots brought international disrepute to the country that is why they have changed the tactics,” Sayeed affirmed.

The way the Sangh Parivar and its frontal organisations such as the RSS and the Bajrang Dal are aiming to change the demographic picture of the country, it is extremely alarming, he said, and questioned: “How come there are so drastic demographic changes which did not happen over centuries and have happened just in last few decades?”

The statement stated that this forced conversions may be in frustration as Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the West, particularly United Kingdom (CNN & ABC report) because it teaches Truth (worship one and only God). This is confirmed by Hindu scriptures as well. “Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires, surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own natures.” [Bhagavad Gita 7:20]. Similar types of statements are also mentioned in all 4 Vedas such as Yajurveda 32:3/5 & Rigveda Book 8, hymn 1, verse 1,” it said.

Sayeed said people want development, jobs and wealth. They don’t want these aspirations undermined by the violence seeking, disruptive and anti-national actions of these RSS, Bajrang Dal loonies. If it is not stopped, it will cause communal tension in the whole country. The government must take strict action, the statement added.
