‘Conspiracy on to defame Hinduism’

Chennai,Nov 04: Former Union Minister and Janata Party President Dr Subramanian Swamy’s Hindus Under Siege – The Way Out, a book on the perils faced by the Hindu religion and its followers was released here yesterday by S Vedantam, international vice president of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in the presence of Swami Dayananda Saraswathi.

Subramanian Swamy, in his introductory remarks on his book, explained that a close scrutiny of national and international events revealed a conspiracy to defame the Hindu religious beliefs, icons and its spiritual leaders. Sri Jeyanadra Saraswathi Swami, Puttapartthi Sri Sathya Sai Baba and Swami Ramdas are some who have become targets in recent times. Moreover, Hindus are under attack from all sides and the only way out is to realise the threats the community faces and build a new mindset to drive out the perils, he pointed out.

‘The Hindus of the country who face serious trouble from all the sides are blissfully ignorant of it,’ lamented Vedantam and lauded Dr Swamy for his initiative in bringing out his book. ‘Examples are galore in India to demonstrate that injustice is being done continuously to Hindus.’ Vedantam wanted to know whether a Hindu could become the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir and cited several instances like the Haj subsidy and tax for Hindus to visit certain sacred places as instances of gross injustice.


He expressed the hope that those who read the book would realise the gravity of the situation and the seriousness of the perils the religion faced and would contribute to the strengthening of the religion.
