Swayamsevaks pledges to safeguard our Nation – ‘Sarhad ko Pranam’

published on December 7, 2012

 ‘Sarhad ko Pranam” a unique program organized by Forum for Integrated National Security (FINS) with an aim to spread the awareness about National Security.  Over 8000 youngsters from across the country have visited the 15000 Km long border between 19thNov and 23rd Nov and have seen for themselves the grim situation at the border. From Tamilnadu, 284 youth participated from 40 jillas. Some of the experiences shared by the swayamsevaks are given below:

Even after 65 years of Independence, we can find villages without the basic amenities like Electricity, Water, Schools, Colleges, Roads and Hospitals etc.  One can find hardly only one School (Ekal Vidyalaya).  People have to travel not less than 20-45 kms for procurement for day to day life, irrespective any monsoon or rain or summer. Since no electricity is found near the borders, infiltration is easy and free for infiltrators.  Villages like Dalu in Meghalaya, Tribals of West Garo Hills face the tough situation.  Communication which in today’s life is a basic amenity is lacking at the border region.  BSF has a tough time in safeguarding the BOP’s.  BSF men are sincere and doing their job well.

 Villagers who depend on agricultural lands near the fencing from the border face hardship by the Bangaladeshi’s – who cut the paddy crops during the night and make them, suffer for food.  Pilferages of essential things are a common scene at the borders.  

Schools do not have Flag Post and students are not aware of our National Flag.   One of the students on seeing the tricolour Flag asked, “Is it Indian Flag or Bangladeshi Flag?”
95% of the people in North East Border regions are converted to Christianity on compulsion by missionary force.  Ration Cards and other essential things are not provided if they object for conversion.

Total Cease Fire has been imposed on the Meghalaya Border.  BSF jawans find tough time to control infiltrators.  They have to talk politely and send them back to their nation.  But Bangladeshi’s has no such laws.

In one of the village named Sibbari, the fencing runs inside the houses and it cuts a total of 20 houses, a Durga temple, a weekly market place etc.  the people are fighting with the Indian Government that the fencing to be built including all the areas that are presently out of fencing.

FINS youth have pledged that not an inch of our land will be let out at the borders and will safeguard our Nation at any cost.
