Pune (Maharashtra) : ‘One who believes in ‘Geeta, Ganga, Gayatri and re-birth’ is a Hindu ! Hindu Dharma is expansive and Hindus should give priority to Hindutva and patriotism rather than being narrow-minded or thinking only about their regions. Earlier, it was said that ‘Swarajya is my birthright’; but now, time has come to say ‘Hindutva is my birthright’, stated Anant Shri Vibhushit Swami Shri. Achyutanand Teerthji Maharaj, the President of ‘Bhooma Niketan’, Hardwar and ‘Bhooma Pithadheeshwar’. He visited Pune recently when Shri. Sunil Ghanavat, Maharashtra State Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and Shri. Dilip Morwale met Maharaj on 26th December. Swamiji is on tour of Maharashtra and Goa to study attacks on Hindu Dharma by westerners and solutions to them to be planned initially, on experimental basis.
Swamiji said further, “The problem of ‘love jihad’ has increased and every Hindu needs to try for its prevention. One should never forget about first being a Hindu. Muslims do not stop wearing round cap even if they are highly educated; Sikhs too wear turbans; but barring Sikhs, other Hindus do not seem to abide by Dharma. We are forgetting our culture for money.” Swamiji made inquiry of HJS activists with lot of affection and bestowed his blessings for HJS activities. Swamiji talked about his plan to set up schools imparting Vedic as well as modern education in which wearing Indian dress would be compulsory.
