Kadapa District Rythu Seva Sangham president S. Ramachandra Reddy called upon Hindus on Wednesday to safeguard the sanatana dharmam and resist religious conversions.
Speaking as the chief guest at the Hindu Dharma Rakshanidhi meeting at the Vishwa Hindu Parishad office here, he exhorted Hindus to safeguard their tradition and culture. The Rakshanidhi was established to mop up resources to run about 15 Saraswati Sisu Mandir schools for the poor and pay about 150 pracharaks, Mr. Reddy said.
All-India joint secretary of Rakshanidhi, Gummalla Satyamji, called for efforts to counter the evil designs of certain forces to shatter Hindu faith. Hindus are being subjected to attacks as they are following traditional rituals, he added.
He called upon Hindus to elect leaders who would safeguard Hindu dharmam and be patriotic, irrespective of their religion, caste and creed.
The Rakshanidhi joint secretary resented the setting up of Heera International Islamic University near Tirumala and the apathy in demolishing the unauthorised six-storey building.
Opposing the four per cent reservation for minorities, he said the government was ‘pampering’ them. VHP State vice-president B. Ramakrishna Reddy, district president K.V. Lakshminarayana Reddy, secretary K. Srinivasulu Reddy and Kadapa city president P. Ravindranath Naidu and other functionaries participated.
