Kerala state meet 2013 of Hindu Munnani which concluded at Thiruvananthapuram on April 6 has called for creating a vote bank of Hindus to end neglect by the government.
Ramagopalan, founder of Hindu Munnai in Tamil Nadu who inaugurated the delegates’ meeting said even during the rule of Dravida parties in Tamil Nadu when Hindus united they were forced to accept many demands of Hindus there. If Hindus in Tamil Nadu can prove that point, Kerala Hindus could do it more effectively, said Ramagopalan.
Ramagopalan pointed out that Hindu resurgence in Tamil Nadu occurred in Kanyakumari district. Kanyakumari is in fact a Hindu minority district in Tamil Nadu. He pointed out that during Hindu resurgence in Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha was forced to bring in a law banning religious conversion. However later the law was repealed under pressure from minorities.
Ramagopalan noted that the industrial town of Tirupur in Tamil Nadu which was once a communist fortress is now a saffron fortress. People have realized that patriotism has disappeared from regional parties and they are realizing pride in Hinduism, said Ramagopalan. He said Hindus of Tamil Nadu had effectively thwarted the efforts of Christians to transform Kanyakumari as Kanyamary and Conversion of scheduled castes to Islam. He added that the move of Karunanidhi lead state govt to review its stand on Ram Sethu.
Around one lakh Hindus participated in a rally held on the occasion marking the conclusion of the meeting. VHP leader Asok Singhal inaugurated the valedictory meeting.
