Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

VHP to stage nation-wide stir on Amarnath land issue

Chennai, Jun 29: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) will stage a country-wide agitation tomorrow, condemning the Jammu and Kashmir Government for withdrawing the land allotted for infrastructural facilities for the benefit of Amarnath pilgrims.

In a statement here, VHP Tamil Nadu unit Organising Secretary M Veerabahu said the Jammu Government had withdrawn the allotted lands, following opposition from Muslims.

''If such incidents of atrocities against Hindus continued, the VHP will launch an agitation demanding withdrawal of various facilities extended to the Muslims, like concessions and infrastructure facilities for Haj pilgrims and allotment for lands to Wakf Board by the Centre,'' he added.

Expressing regret that the Congress Government had withdrawn the land to stay in power by bowing to the demands of the Muslims, Mr Veerabahu said the agitation would be held across the country demanding restoration of land for the benefit of pilgrims. The Centre should insist the Jammu and Kashmir Government to do so,'' he added.
