Hindu Agenda for the State of Bharat


Our Bharat - the land of divine incarnations - has an antiquity untraceable by history. This is the land treaded by Purushottam Ram and sages and seers. Our rivers and hills have sacredness and sanctity. We are the inheritors of this great civilization, an ageless civilization. This land of ours had been the soul of the universe radiating wisdom and knowledge - both of material sciences and spiritual experiences. Our Vedas and the Upanishads and the Gita are not just religious texts but treasures that transform men. It is to these Upanishads that Schopenhaur - the German thinker - referred to as "the solace of his life and the solace of his death". Thus everyone born in this Punyabhoomi must consider himself as the fortunate son of this land and its great heritage.

No less a person than that evolved soul - Swami Vivekananda - was overwhelmed with emotion whenever he talked of this Punyabhoomi that made him say: "Each nation has an identity and destiny. As far as Bharat is concered Hindu is its identity and religion is its way of working".


Our Bharat becoming free after thousand-year subjugation must shape its own destiny, must have its own identity, method and agenda.

As far as Bharat's destiny is concerned, its destinty must be based on Hindu ideals as Dr Annie Besant asserted. A foreigner, she propagated for the preservation of Hindu ideals and values and said, "India perishes if Hinduism perishes". This Hindu ideal is the basis of our nationalism. Maha Rishi Aurobindo in a speech at Uttarpara proclaimed, "Sanatana Dharma is our Nationalism".

This Sanatana Dharma is a living continuity for thousands of years encompassing the religious, spiritual and cultural needs of diverse peoples of Bharat and has woven into us a national ethos. An independent Bharat state has a duty to preserve this great Dharma as it is the foundation of our state. Samuel Hattington in his book "The Clash of Civilizations" asserted that "that state only would last long which is based on its own culture and civilization" and concluded that Bharat has a chance for a long survival as a nation state because of its ancient culture and civilization.

Thus the state in India has a duty to uphold and preserve this unifying ancient culture and civilization. 

Hindu Rashtra and Rama Rajya

 Establishing a strong Hindu Rashtra is our long-term goal. Hindu Rashtra is a perception about this nation in which all sections of people, though having different forms of worship, consider this land, its heritage as their own and as they belonging to one race, culture and civilization.

"Ram Rajya" is another goal before the State and the people in which the happiness of all people will be achieved through just laws, just actions and just values in public and private life. There will be no discrimination against any section - poor or rich. There will be justice for all and appeasement of none. Under Ram Rajya economic welfare will be achieved through Dharmic measures. The State will be based on the principle of "Sarva Jana Hitaaya, Sarva Jana Sukhaaya". 

The economic welfare program will consist of the following measures:

1. Family - Each Hindu family must be protected;
2. For Youth - Job-oriented economy and self-employment;
3. For Industry - Internal liberalization free from Licence Raj;
4. For Farmers - Agriculture-based economic development.

In order to achieve our goal of Hndu Rashtra and Rama Rajya, the following steps must be taken.


The Temple at Bhagwan Ram's birthplace was destroyed in 1528 CE and the Babri structure was built in its place. The objective was a political one to provide an ocular reminder to the Hindus that Islam ruled over their holy land. Thus it was a monument of Hindu slavery.

The struggle to repossess the birthplace of Bhagwan Ram has been going on for the last 478 years. It is a program for upholding the dignity and showing devotion to Bhagwan Ram. Lakhs of Hindu lives have been sacrificed in this struggle.

The right of the Hindus to the holy site of Rama Janma Bhumi has been well established through evidences provided by the VHP in December 1990. The literary, historical, archaeological, revenue and judicial records clearly establish the Hindu case. The excavations carried in 2003 have confirmed the existence of a temple at the site. Hindus have made sincere efforts to get the site back through negotiations also. Discussions were held with three prime ministers - V.P. Singh, Chandrashekhar and P.V. Narasimha Rao. They were not allowed to be taken to the logical conclusion and floundered at the altar of Muslim vote bank. In these conspiracies to dislodge the sincere efforts of the Hindus, the so-called secularists played an active role. 

Immediate steps should be taken to handover the entire site to the Sri Rama Janma Bhumi Nyas. Similarly, temples of Kashi Vishwanath and Bhagwan Krishna at Sri Krishna Janmasthan which were similarly destroyed, must be restored to the Hindus.


From times immemorial our places of worship have been centers of spiritual experience, social cohesion and unifying centers.

Magnificent temples were built by Avantivarman in Kashmir to Raja Raja Chola far in the South proclaiming Hindu devotion, divinity and architectural skill of our artisans. They served as centers of all Hindu activity - fine arts, cow protection, hospital, library, Langar (feeding the poor) and even courts of justice. No modern engineers could erect a similar edifice of such loftiness and magnificence and symmetry.

Hindu blood boils at the state of Neglect of our Shrines.

Why this Neglect? Because of the laws of the secular Governments of various states temples have been taken over by the State, their properties running into crores have been taken over by the Governments leaving the temples in shambles - without Pujas or maintenance.

While secular Governments take over only Hindu Shrines, the Churches and Mosques are left to be managed by the respective communities. Is this secularism? Can a secular state manage religious institutions? 

Even after takeover the governments have misused the funds of the temples for un-Hindu purposes and secular activities. Many Land Reforms Acts have been brought about reducing the income of the temples from the lakhs of acres the temples possess. All these laws have been made possible by the facilitating provisions in the Constitution under Articles 25 & 26. Hence such laws should be abrogated and the temples handed over to the specially constituted Dharmic Councils for administration. We need "Samaajikaran" not "Sarkaarikaran".


  From times immemorial "GOMATHA" is our life's sustenance, a reflection of our compassion for all living animals. Cow is a part of a Hindu family, a Hindu farmer and his farm.

The nation state has a duty to take into consideration the way of life of people and their aspirations.

It is a tragedy of unimaginable lengths to see our venerable GOMATHA butchered in millions under our very eyes. HINDU SOCIETY has become a helpless spectator as the laws allow this slaughter. 

The Constitution has taken a lukewarm stand as far as meeting the aspirations of the Hindus in Art. 48 (Directive Principles of State Policy) indirectly advising Government to preserve cattle wealth and cows. Kerala and West Bengal serve as the nation's slaughter states to which our cows are marched to meet their death.


Ganga is the holy river of the Hindus and their lifeline in Uttar Bharat. Its preservation in its pristine purity is the duty of the society and the state. Similarly, the state has an obligation to preserve the purity of other sacred rivers like Yamuna, Godavari, Cauvery, Narmada, etc.

Preservation of Religious, Historical, Heritage Sites

The government must recognize the significance of our ancient religious and historical sites and take steps to preserve and develop them for the benefit of our progeny.


It is a pity that the study of Sanskrit - a unifying classic language of great antiquity - has been neglected in independent India. There is no provision for study of Sanskrit in our schools and colleges.

The state must restore Sanskrit - the vehicle of all knowledge - to its prestigious place in the educational institutions besides encouraging the study of Sanskrit in centers of learning.


Taking root in Kashmir, Jehadi terrorism is spreading and threatening the life and liberty and peaceful existence of the people. Indoctrinated in the Madarsas and abetted by inimical Pakistan, the Jehadis indulge in bomb blasts, sabotage and killings. This Jehadi threat must be countered and eliminated with full will and force along with centers within India where they are harboured. 

All secessionist forces like the ULFA, NSCN in the North-East who are aided and supported by the foreign Christian Missionaries must be put down with an iron hand. In this the role of the ISI must be identified and exposed.

In the heartland of India is the threat and violence from the Naxalites of various shades having links with the violent communist organizations in Bihar, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. The state must launch a manhunt for these rebellious groups and fight them out in jungles and cities.

In this context, government has a bounden duty to destroy all the training camps of all types of terrorists whether Jehadis or Naxals or ULFA situated within the country. 


Another factor of internal turmoil is the growing religious conversions. A Nation State has a duty to see that the foundations of the State are not shaken by demographic changes reducing the Hindus to a minority in their own land.

Change of religion leads to change of nationality. Wherever Hindus are reduced to a minority, secessionism begins to raise its head.

Swami Vivekananda rightly cautioned that the conversion of one Hindu does not mean one Hindu less, but one enemy more.

Proselytisation is facilitated by the flow of foreign funds to the Church, NGOs and to the Muslim groups. These funds supposedly to be used for service projects or actually used as inducements to convert poor Hindus. The state must monitor, control and stop the flow of funds and their use for purposes of conversion. 

In many districts, particularly border districts of Bengal and Assam, the Hindus are being reduced to a minority. In some States like Kerala, Hindus may become a minority in the decades to come. This facility for conversion emanates from the rights given to the minorities in the Constitution under Art. 25, 29 and 30(1). This continuous conversion process will lead to breaking up of families, villages and the society at large endangering the security of the nation itself. Conversions to Islam and Christianity must be banned forthwith by appropriate laws and changes in the Constitution.


Infiltration from Bangladesh has been encouraged by secular politicians to create a vote bank. The infiltrators have been provided with ration cards and their names enrolled in the voting list. In some places, it is the foreigners who determine the election results. Presently it has become a threat to national security since it has taken a form of Islamic terrorism controlled by Pakistan. The demography of many border districts of West Bengal, Bihar and Assam has been altered to the disadvantage of Hindus. Infiltration also has become a source for committing anti-national acts within. Hence, all steps must be taken not only to stop any type of infiltration, but throw out the infiltrators already in India. 


Article 370 was envisaged as a temporary provision in the Constitution. In the early 60s when Atal Behari Vajpayee wanted to move a Bill abrogating Article 370, Pt. Nehru dissuaded him saying that many provisions of the Article had already been diluted and the Article was slowly getting eroded. This Article has created a sense of separateness among some Muslims of Jammu & Kashmir. It is because of this terrorism in the Kashmir Valley has flourished leading to the turmoil and Hindu suffering. Real national integration can be ensured only with the abrogation of Article 370 and the state must take all legislative and constitutional steps. 


National integration and the concept of secularism demand that the laws are common to all and that all citizens are equal under the law. 

But it is not so in our "secular state". There are various types of discrimination against Hindus - in inheritance, marriage, and even in running an educational institution. 

All these separate laws and privileges for religious minorities have led to separatist thinking, behaviour and even life style among the minorities. Such separate laws for Muslims have resulted in frequent divorce of Muslim women making their life miserable. Hence the State must abrogates such laws and Articles in the Constitution. 

Thrice the Supreme Court had directed the government to frame a common civil code. One provision that enables the evolution of common laws is Article 44 (Directive Principles) of the Constitution. These enable the State to frame common civil laws for all citizens and ensure equality before law for all. This provision must be taken advantage of by the state. 


The State has a duty to give the right type of education to the future citizens - education that will generate patriotism, pride in the glory of their past, vision of the future, besides character building through good moral codes and values. 

Our education curriculum must be overhauled to make every student a scholar and a patriot and a model for his/her own progeny. Our scriptures and Dharma should also be included in the curriculum. The history that our students study is a distorted one suppressing, misinterpreting facts of our glorious past. In many cases the acts of vandalism by invaders have been negated and in other cases invaders are glorified. Hence, a thorough revamping of the study of history must be done in the curriculum providing to our students a continuous, truthful history making them take pride in their past and in the achievements of their forefathers, creating in them a sense of belonging.


The Government of India has a duty to ensure the life and liberty of the Hindus living abroad in the context of periodical threats to their life and livelihood in their adopted countries. Special concern must be shown for the Hindus living in Bangladesh, Pakistan, Fiji and West Asian countries.


Politicians and political parties must correct all wrong perceptions, policies and programmes of their respective parties and enable a rethinking that would ensure national unity and cohesion. We appeal to them not to ignore any of the sections in this Agenda as impracticable, but make earnest efforts to understand the aspirations of the Hindu majority and consequently so reframe their policies and programs that would lead to the implementation of this Hindu Agenda. All that is required is the right perception, a vision of the future of the nation, the aspirations of the Hindu majority and the political will. 

We hope our brethren in politics would do the right thing by serving the motherland and the priceless heritage called Sanatan Dharma.
