Shrikant Sharma Balvyas, eminent religious preacher; Dindayal Gupta, Secretary, APBS; Yogesh Shastri, Vedic Preacher of APSB; Govind Ram Agarwal (Dhanawale), Secretary of Marwari Relief society, Prahlad Goyenka, Go-Ganga Rakshak and Upananda Brahmachari, Editor, Hindu Existence met the Governor of West Bengal and discussed over the matters of the Memorandum handed over to Governor for taking necessary actions on urgent basis. All the delegates are well engaged with cow protection with their own discipline of social activities.
The memorandum contains the salient features as A. Cow protection and Stop Cow slaughter in West Bengal. B. Stopping the honorarium of Imam and Muazzin ( as per Calcutta High Court’s order dated 02/09/2013 out of WP 358 Of 2012, WP No. 8662 of 2012, WP No. 9163 of 2012, WP No 11118 of 2012). (C) General Law and Order situation including growing fatal consequence upon girls and women in the State of West Bengal and (D). Restoration of the dignity of Sanskrit and Hindi languages and removal of illogical status of Urdu language as second language in West Bengal.
While Shrikant Sharma Balvyas and Dindayal Gupta discussed over the matter related to cow protection and vulnerable situation for women protection in the state, Upananda Brahmachari and Yogesh Shastri pointed out the State Govt.’s unlawful motives for allowing honorarium to Imams and Muazzins even after Calcutta High Court’s specific order to stop the same through its judgment on 02/09/2013 as passed by Mr. Pranab Kr Chattopadhyay (J) and Mr. Murari Prasad Shrivastava (J).
Upananda Brahmachari further had to draw the notice of Governor as the state deliberately ignoring the protection of Sanskrit languages and illogically giving much importance of the Urdu language in a process of discarding the status of Hindi language in a very unjustified manner.
Hon’ble Governor of West Bengal took all the matters seriously and assured to address the matters with State Govt. for proper actions accordingly.
