Will move court on Ram Setu issue: VHP

VHP Monday said it would move court to get Ram Setu declared a national monument and slammed the Congress led UPA govt for shifting to the Supreme Court, the task of taking a decision on the matter.



Coimbatore: VHP Monday said it would move court to get Ram Setu declared a national monument and slammed the Congress led UPA government for shifting to the Supreme Court, the task of taking a decision on the matter.

"When it was possible for the Centre to bring in so many measures to protect the interests of minorities, it must do the same to protect the faith and honour of Hindus,"Raghava Reddy, VHP International President told reporters here today.

He said VHP would file a petition in the Supreme Court and its Tamil Nadu unit in Madras High Court to get Ram Setu declared a national monument. At the same time it would chalk out a program to pressurise the Centre to take a positive stand on the issue, he said.

Reddy also termed as `mischievous,` the Centre`s move to enact Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence bill and said VHP would not allow passage of such a bill in Parliament, which he alleged was intended to divide Hindu society further.

He also demanded that the Centre withdraw the 4.5 per cent reservation for minorities, "which is being provided at the cost of backward Hindus."
