Jamshedpur: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh pracharak and regional secretary of Hindu Jagran Manch Dr Suman Kumar on Sunday said there should be complete ban on cow slaughter and religious conversion in Jharkhand. He said the state government had enacted important legislations in this regard, but still the laws are being violated in the state.
Kumar, who is on a visit to steel city, said the Raghubar Das government had put reins on the killing of cows and conversion of poor and innocent Adivasis in the state. He said none of the Adivasi Chief Ministers had ever tried to stop conversion of tribal people.
The senior RSS leader demanded that the state government should take the initiative to save and preserve the important rivers of Jharkhand. These rivers resemble nullahs as they have dried up in most parts of the state, said Kumar.
Kumar said the countrymen should take a pledge to create ‘Akhand Bharat’ (indivisble India). He said the Hindus were being targeted under the ‘love jihad’ conspiracy of Muslim radical groups and extremist organizations. He said the Hindu culture and religion were being assaulted every day and that there was an urgent need to rescue and bring back the victims of conversion.
“In Jharkhand, 11,000 families have returned home as a part of the ‘ghar vapasi’ programme. In Jamshedpur, 46 families have been rescued from the evil clutches of the culprits. The campaign would be launched in the city on a massive scale,” said the RSS leader.
Kumar was accompanied by Jammuvale Baba, Hindu Jagran Manch general secretary Amit Sharma and Veerangana president Rashmi Mahato.
