Virat Hindustan Sangam to drive Hindu unity in India -- Dr. Swamy

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today announced the formation of an organisation that would push for potent Hindutva issues like securing the disputed Ram Mandir area for building a temple. For the same purpose, Muslims will be persuaded to accept an alternative site for mosque.

Dr. Swamy's outfit, Virat Hindustan Sangam, will enable the youth to push for genuine Hindu issues such as scrapping of Article 370, Uniform Civil Code, Ram Temple and Beef ban.  

The newly formed body will also operate as a pressure group on BJP even though both are expected to work closely with each other. Elaborating further, Dr. Swamy indicated that construction of Ram temple will be his priority from January 1, 2016 onwards. For the same purpose, Waqf Board can be offered a site across Sarayu river in order to keep the Ram temple site exclusively for temple.

"We hope to complete it by the end of 2016 because of our activism both in courts and in terms of pushing the government," he said, adding that he would have finished most of his legal work in the Supreme Court by then.

Besides Ram Temple, Dr. Swamy also stressed on the scrapping of Article 370 that has been put aside by BJP. Virat Hindustan Sangam will be open to Hindus and those Muslims who acknowledge their Hindu ancestry.  

VHS is an attempt to organize Hindus to intellectually drive change in India. For example, major catalyst for change could be taking up genuine causes through PILs and people participation. Themes for positive/constructive changes being Hindutva (Temple management, Sanskrit, Vedic Studies), anti-corruption and governance. 

VHS will also gradually conduct training programs across major cities in India.
