Rajkot: Describing the proposed Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence (PCTV) bill as anti-majority, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Wednesday said it would launch a nation-wide agitation to create awareness against it.

VHP Rajkot unit leader, Chaman Sindhav, said with the support of religious leaders from various Hindu sects, the organisation would start its agitation on July 23.

Religious leader Swami Parmatmanandji, who was present on the occasion, dubbed the bill as "inhuman" and against the Constitution, and said UPA government was doing injustice to Hindus in bringing this bill and attempting appeasement of minorities.

It was a vote-bank politics, he said, claiming that the bill seeks to punish "victims of communal violence which mainly are Hindus".

He said the bill would not be implemented in Kashmir and other parts of the country where Hindus were a minority, which was an anti-Hindu decision.
