Don’t Sensitise Self-defence as weapon training, says VHP

New Delhi, May 30, 2018: In the past few days, a highly misleading propaganda has been unleashed against the summer training camps of Bajrang Dal and Durga Vahini by a certain section of people in the country. In a press statement Dr. Surendra Jain, Joint General Secretary Vishwa Hindu Parishad today said that these training camps are being held as part of our routine organisational activities in all states continuously since last 28 years. Our great civilization, culture, history and philosophical values of the country is showcased in such camps. For the purpose of developing mental, intellectual as well as physical values, yoga, drills and target-practice are included in such camps. However, some people misleading the country by sensationalising it as some sort of a weapons training programme. The truth is that one can see such physical exercise being carried out in many villages and towns across the country.

Many schemes are being run for Swasth Bharat and many Govt. & NGOs too are working in this direction. Therefore, such self-defence trainings do not in any way impart fear in the minds of people. This endeavour, to make the society strong, is completely legal, positive and development-oriented, he added.
