Mumbai, Sep 11: Rameshwaram Ram Setu Raksha Manch, an offshoot of the Saffron outfit Vishwa Hindu Parishad, will organise a three-hour ”rasta roko” agitation tomorrow despite the Government informing the Supreme Court yesterday that there was no archaeological or historical evidence to prove that ”Rama Setu,” a mythical barrier also known as Adams’ bridge, was man made, According to the Manch, its activists will organise a three-hour ”rasta roko” agitation here from 0800 hrs to 1100 hrs to protest the demolition of the bridge.Alongside Mumbai, the agitation will also be organised in the neighbouring Navi Mumbai, Thane and Dombivali and Kalyan in the Thane district.

The decision to launch the agitation was taken at a meeting recently held at Rameshwaram more than 20,000 devotees, including a host of religious leaders participated in the Manch meeting.

The Manch claims that the protection of the ‘ancient’ bridge is not only associated with the religious sentiments, but also necessary for protection of the huge thorium deposits around it. — UNIhttp://tinyurl.com/yoxvbr

Setu-samudram project’ is Govt’s methodic plan to hurt Hindu feelings – Dr. Subramanyam Swami

September 7, 2007
By Staff Reporter, HJS
Mumbai (Maharashtra): ‘Arrest of Shankaracharya, prohibition on Dharmacharya to carry His ‘Danda’ during His air travel, destruction of ‘Ram-setu’ etc. are the methodic assaults by the Government on objects of worship of Hindus. When faith is destroyed, society is weakened and it is easy to convert such people. This is the real objective behind demolishing ‘Ram-setu’. The above statement was made by Dr. Subramanyam Swamy, the President of Janata Party. Dr. Swamy was the main speaker in a program held on behalf of ‘Rameshwaram Ram-setu Raksha Manch’ and ‘Indian History Compilation Committee (Konkan Zone)’. He said, “It is not important to prove with the help of science, whether ‘Ram-setu’ is natural or man-made; but Hindus have faith in ‘Ram-setu’ and this reason is enough. Scientific proofs can be obtained later as was found in case of existence of Saraswati River and Dwaraka.” He said further that 5 commissions before the Congress Government took over in 2004 had put up alternate plans against demolition of ‘Ram-setu’. But this Government has found a new approach so that the ‘Ram-setu’ would be demolished. The Government’s intentions are quite clear. Now the fight is between ‘Om and Rome.” In a case fought in Punjab High Court about Brahma-sarovar (lake) in Kurukshetra, the Court had passed a verdict that if people have faith in Brahma Lake, there is no need to find any proof and their faith is sufficient. Even now the same problem has arisen. But the Congress Government is trying to avoid finding answer to this problem.

Shri. Karunanidhi, the President of DMK has extended his support to the project as Karunanidhi claims to be an atheist and not a Hindu. He has been carrying out very insulting propaganda against Sree Rama for past so many decades. He has written many dishonorable things about Sree Rama and is generally against Sree Rama. We must remember this. Shri. Swamy said further that the Government changed the route of Metro railway when a petition was filed that Delhi Metro project is a danger to Qutub Minar. The Government spent additional 20 crores of rupees in changing the route. Historical importance of Qutub Minar is nothing against ‘Ram-setu’. But the Government believes only in buttering minorities. The rulers want to prove to the minorities by demolishing ‘Ram-setu’that they do not care for Hindus. He said that as Indian Government is indifferent towards the demand to declare ‘Ram-setu’ as a historical monument, he would appeal to the Government of Sri Lanka for the same. (Hindus must realize that it would be shameful if help of another country is sought to save ‘Ram-setu’. They should try their best to save ‘Ram-setu’ – Editor)

Dr. Durgesh Samant, all India spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), Shri. Ramesh Shinde, its spokesperson for the State of Maharashtra, Shri. Shivanand Prabhu, HJS spokesperson for Southern India and Shri. Shivaji Vatkar, the Mumbai coordinator of HJS called on Dr. Swamy and briefed him about activities of HJS and various drives undertaken by it. Dr. Swamy was also informed about distortion of Indian Map on CNN-IBN and BBC TV channels, representation submitted to the Central Government in this regard and Govt’s inaction. Dr. Swamy asked for the relevant papers in the matter and assured to take up the issue with the Government.

Sri Lanka opposes Sethu project: Swamy

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: The Sri Lankan Government has opposed the Sethusamudram Canal Project as it felt it would have an adverse impact on the island’s environment, according to Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy.

Talking to newspersons here on Thursday, Dr. Swamy said a 34-member committee appointed by Colombo to study the environmental impact of the project had concluded that the island’s ecology would be adversely affected. Besides, it considered the Ram Sethu as its historical heritage which should be protected. The findings of the committee had been conveyed to him by Sri Lankan High Commission officials here, he said.

Charging that the Union Cabinet had misled the nation about the financial viability of the project, he said the cost had been grossly underestimated and the revenue claim had been overestimated.

The Ram Sethu should not be destroyed for implementing the project.

Press Release: Protest against Sonia (Maino) Gandhi on representing India on Non-Violence Day at UN  Forum For Gandhi Heritage Organization New York :  A protest and fast is being planned at United Nations in New York on Oct 2 nd against Sonia Gandhi representation for Non-Violence day at UN on Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday.   The protest will take place in front of UN from 12-2 PM.  Dates for fasting will be announced at the website http://gandhiherita ge.org .  A bus will be arranged from Edison, NJ. Volunteers are welcome for fasting and for organizing buses from different areas. The recent UN declaration of Mahatma Gandhi birthday as International Non-Violence day at India’s request is commendable.  However instead of true Gandhians who lived there life based on Gandhi ji’s ideals representing this day at UN, politicians like Sonia Gandhi are using his name for political mileage and international legitimacy. The alarming threat Sonia poses to democracy of India, corruption & fraud since entering India, dividing India for purpose of dynasty rule, crusade to wipe out Hinduism. What is the difference in blow up of Buddhist statues by Taliban & the blow up of Rama Sethu? In thought, word and deed, what Sonia stands for is direct contradiction to what Mahatma Gandhi stood for.   Mahatma Gandhi was an embodiment of Truth.  His life was guided by Hindu scriptures and has deep respect to all religions and to democratic & secular principles. On the other hand, Sonia’s actions as unraveled by many journalists speak volumes of her character and emphasize the danger the humanity faces when even the best name in the world is utilized for personal gain. Sonia comes from a family background associated with Fascism.  Her father worked for Mussolini fascists and was later involved with KGB.  Sonia came to India through her relation with Rajiv during his study at UK where she worked as caregiver.  As elaborated with detailed records in the article ‘Greedy Sonia’ of the book ‘Sonia, the truth’ from India First foundation, Sonia has been engaging in many fraudulent and corrupt activities since she entered India in 1970 which showed little regard for Indian Law.  Most well known is through her close Italian family friend Quattrocchi (Q) who engaged in number of corrupt activities in India as agent for Bofors and for another Italian Company SNEM. Q has looted the country millions of dollars and jeopardized the security of the country and got 30 deals signed for SNEM.  She, Rajiv and Rahul are confirmed paid KGB agents and she is the heir of Rajiv Swiss account of 4625 crores.  Through Jawahar, Indira and Rajiv trusts and Indira Gandhi Arts Center millions of crores of rupees have been usurped by manipulating the laws and boards to her favor.   Per Dr. Subramanian Swamy and others, Indira Gandhi Arts Center is being used to smuggle antique items to her sister antique shop in Italy which is a trading post for US/UK.   Both she and her Italian family is believed to have become billionaires looting India .  Contrast this with Gandhi ji,  who owned nothing but a loin cloth, chappals and a watch and who once send his son packing to South Africa for minor transgression. Sonia never demonstrated patriotism for India.  She retained Italian Citizenship for 16 years until Rajiv became Prime Minister in 1984.  (She is eligible after two years).  During 1974 Pak war, while all Indian Airlines pilots are required to stay on job, she, pilot Rajiv & two children ran and stayed in Italy.  When in 1977 Indira Gandhi lost elections, she packed overnight, ran & hid herself with Rajiv & Children in Italian embassy in Delhi.  She rose to President of congress by overthrowing Sitaram Kesari with Congress goons and more importantly the mysterious deaths of her congress opponents like Rajesh Pilot, Madhava Rao Scindia and Jitendra Prasad cannot but raise questions.  Contrast this with Gandhi ji whose heart and soul is India.  He went into the severe rioting area at a great risk to his life and was almost killed by a rioter.  Such is Gandhi’s love for every Indian when someone asked Kasturbai how many children she has, she replied that while she had 4 children, her husband has three hundred million children.  Sonia is in a hurry, hurry to install her siblings on throne reigning over more than one billions Indians.  Rather than administer the country for the welfare of all Indians from day one she got elected she is pursuing a strategy of divide and conquer to ensure her seat of power forever.  She and her cohorts are engaging in policy of allowing illegal immigration of Bangla deshis (increase muslims), assisting in illegal conversion (Christians) and divide Hindus (thro’ caste reservations) for assured vote banks.  She started the policy of Muslims have first right over resources purely for vote banks which has potential to divide India again.  Contrast this with Gandhi ji who told Jinnah, cut me into half than divide India.  Neither Gandhi ji nor his descendants later ever claimed power. With her Italian pope connections Sonia has also been very busy engaging in attempt to wipe out or subjugate Hinduism in India.  She intimidated most revered Hindu saint on whom no evidence could be produced after 3 years.  Rama Sethu held sacred by one billion Hindus is being blown up just like Taliban blew up Buddha Statues and this in spite of overwhelming proof that it would be an environmental disaster.  Her protégé YSR in Andhra Pradesh is on a crusade to destroy Hindu Temples and attempted to take over 5 out of 7 most sacred Tirumala hills for Churches and Tourism.  She and others are blowing up sacred Rama Sethu just like Talibans blew up Buddha statues.  Per Francois Gautier, she created 5 Christian CM’s & her coterie consists of only Hindu baiting Christians Ambika Soni who is blowing up Rama Sethu, Margaret Alva, Oscar Fernandez,  Hindu hater Valson Thampu who is rewriting text books to disparage Hinduism and Kanchan Ilaya another Hindu hater to lobby against caste discrimination in UN & US Congress.  Will US President lobby UN and India for racism in US?  Contrast this Gandhi ji, who is very embodiment of Hinduism and Gita and his great respect to every religion.  He said the religious conversions engaged by missionaries are the deadliest poison that ever sapped the fountain of truth and poverty does not justify conversion.   His strength was Rama Nama and he died with that name on his lips. While Gandhi ji is Dharma Rakshaka,  Sonia’s actions show she is Dharma Bhakshaka.  If we allow this to continue, it is not just India but all humanity will suffer. India will surely be dragged into likes of emergency period and its gains in economy can be wiped out.  Please become aware and join our protest and fast.  Endorsed by Forum for saving Gandhi Heritage consisting of Mahatma Gandhi International Foundation,  Indo Caribbean Council,  Kashmiri Pandits Association,  Foundation of Nepalis in America & others given on website.  Contact:  Thali: 732-403-7460, Prasad: 630-885-3180, Umesh: 908-240- 7720,  Naresh:609-226- 9702,  Kataria: 718- 478-5735,  Sahani:718-271- 0453, Prasad: 480-544-3258 & Others on website.

Chennai, Sept 5: http://newstodaynet.com/05sep/05pg7-6.jpg
Rameswaram Ram Sethu Protection Movement president Ramagopalan addressing
the media in Chennai today. BJP leader L Ganesan is also present.
A nation-wide rail and road roko agitation will be held on 12 September to protect Ram Sethu. Addressing mediapersons here today, Rameswaram Ram Sethu Protection Movement (RRPM) president and founder organiser of Hindu Munnani Ramagopalan said that they have been forced to resort to rail and road demonstration in view of the intransigence of the Central government and the Union Shipping Minister TR Baalu on the Ramar bridge issue. He lamented that the Central Shipping Minister and the Union government had ignored the opinion of experts on the Sethu Samudram Canal Project (SSCP) issue. Explaining that the movement has been taking up all democratic methods to halt the project, he also said that so far the Central government had turned a nelson’s eye to such protests. In Chennai the protests will be held at Anna Salai, Vadapalani and Mint Street. While Ramagopalan will participate in Chennai road roko, BJP State President L Ganesan will lead the agitation in Tiruchi. Meanwhile, a statement here today from the RRPM said that it was aware of the inconvenience caused to the public by the move and appealed to the public to bear with them and cooperate so that with the Ram Sethu could be saved. http://newstodaynet.com/05sep/ld10.htm   ராமர் பாலத்தை காக்க இந்து முன்னணி 12ம் தேதி மறியல் : ராமகோபாலன் அறிவிப்பு சென்னை : `ராமர்பாலம் இடிக்கப்படாமல் காக்க இந்து முன்னணி மற்றும் பா.ஜ., சார்பில் வரும் 12ம் தேதி நாடு தழுவிய அளவில் பஸ் மற்றும் ரயில் மறியல் போராட்டம் நடத்தப்பட உள்ளதுஎன்று ராமேஸ்வரம் ராமர் பால பாதுகாப்பு இயக்கத் தலைவர் ராமகோபாலன் தெரிவித்தார். சென்னையில் நிருபர்களிடம் பேசிய ராமகோபாலன், மக்கள் கருத்தை கேட்காமல் ராமர் பாலத்தை இடிக்கும் நடவடிக்கையில் இறங்கியதால் தான் ராமர் பாலத்தை காக்க தொடர்ந்து போராட்டம் நடத்த வேண்டிய கட்டாயம் எங்களுக்கு ஏற்பட்டு விட்டது. இந்திய ராணுவம் மூலம் சக்திவாய்ந்த குண்டு வைத்து ராமர் பாலத்தை தகர்க்க உள்ளதாக எங்களுக்கு தகவல் வந்துள்ளது. இதை தடுத்து நிறுத்துவோம் என்று கூறினார்.

You can save Qutub Minar & Taj Mahal, why not Ram-setu?August 30, 2007Solapur (Maharashtra): As per the original plans, metro railway route in Delhi was passing by Qutub Minar. But it could have caused damage to the structure and therefore, the route was changed. Taj corridor project was cancelled as it would have hampered the beauty of Taj Mahal. Route of Konkan Railway was also changed to save a 400 hundred year old church in Goa. When so much care is taken of feelings of followers of other religions, why only Hindu feelings are trampled.The above question was raised by Adv. Aparna Ramteerthkar, a social activist. She was speaking in a youth conference held on the occasion of ‘Raksha Bandhan’. She said that it might be objectionable to call ‘Ram-setu’ as ‘Adam’s Bridge’; but it shows that it has been accepted as a bridge; then why the Government should have problem in accepting the existence of ‘Ram-setu’. Along with the religious sentiments even the security of the nation is at stake. Already East and West coasts are not safe. After demolition of ‘Ram-setu’, even foreign ships can reach the sea-coast.

VHP to step up Ramar Sethu stirChennai, Aug 26: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad will organise a nation-wide `road roko’ on September 12 to protest against the proposal to blast Ramar Sethu, also called Adam’s Bridge, as part of implementing the Sethu Samudram Ship Channel Project (SSCP). The road roko would be held for three hours from 8 am and a chain of protests would be organised until the union government dropped the alignment that would damage the bridge, VHP international secretary Pravin Togadia told reporters at Rameswaram. He was in the pilgrims’ town to participate in a yagam performed to protect Ramar Sethu. Mr Togadia warned that the government would have to face serious consequences if it went ahead with the plan to destroy the bridge.The protests, he said, had begun from district-level to national level as part of the efforts to safeguard the bridge. He claimed that the thorium available in the portion of the sea where the project was being executed would meet the requirements of the country. While Just as was using the thorium for electricity generation, the thorium available here could also be used to generate power. On security aspects, he alleged that the destruction of the ancient bridge would make the Indian waters vulnerable to the illegal movement of foreign vessels, even from Pakistan. Hence, the government should select an alternative alignment for SSCP.Mr Togadia claimed that a proposal to construct roadbridge in Delhi was dropped as Qutub Minar was in the way and likewise a plan to build an overbridge in Mumbai was also withdrawn to appease Muslims. He charged the Congress-led government with going ahead with the proposal to damage the bridge to hurt Hindu sentiments. “The ruling government is of the view that it could mobilise Muslim support by hurting Hindu sentiments,” the VHP leader said.

Ram Sethu: VHP to conduct road roko

Rameswaram (TN), Aug. 26 (PTI): The VHP will organise a nation wide ‘road roko’ for three hours from 8 am on September 12 to protest against the ‘proposal to destroy Ramarsethu’ (Adam’s bridge) for the construction of Sethu Samudram Shipping Canal Project (SSCP).

Talking to reporters here, VHP International general secretary, Pravin Togadia, who participated in a ‘yagna for the protection of Ramarsethu’, denied reports that his organisation was late in conducting agitations for the protection of the Ramarsethu.

He warned the government that it would have to face serious consequences if it went ahead with the plan to ‘destroy’ Ramarsethu.

He said a 34-memebr expert committee in Sri Lanka had last month submitted a report to the President there on the cross and cons of the project.

Rameswaram, August 27: As part of its intensified movement to protect Ramar Sethu, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) would hold road blockades across the country on September 12 seeking a change in the alignment of the Sethusamudram Ship Channel Project (SSCP).

“Ramar bridge is a heritage and holy site, we should not allow government to touch it… We have started the agitation even as the government is preparing to blast the holy bridge,” VHP leader Praveen Togadia said here yesterday.

Whether it was pyramids of Egypt or Great Wall of China, people of the respective countries would not allow their governments to damage them.

Stating that VHP was not against the SSCP, he claimed that the project could be completed by choosing another alignment, which was cheaper too, without damaging the Ramar Sethu.

“This (present) alignment has been chosen deliberately to hurt the Hindu sentiments, and Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) and Shipping Minister T R Baalu should take complete responsibility for the same,” he said.

Ramar Sethu contained vast amounts of thorium, which could be used to generate four lakh MW of power, he claimed.

“If the bridge is intact, the state (Tamil Nadu) could get more revenue. They could also mine thorium and become richer.” He also referred to a report submitted by an expert committee in Sri Lanka which said that Talaimannar, Trincomallee and Rameswaram would face severe drinking water shortage if the project was taken up.

The issue could be taken up with the international court if the government went ahead with the project and broke the bridge, he said.

“Why should they break the link (Ramar Sethu) between India and Sri Lanka, a friendly country,” Togadia asked.

He also claimed both Sinhalese and Tamils in Sri Lanka were opposed to the SSCP.

“The government might have to face the ire of the Hindu community, if it destroyed the holy places of Hindus to please the vote bank of Muslims,” he added.

Hindu Munnani leader Ramagopalan, who addressed conference and rally attended by around 25,000 people from all over south India, said the Sri Ramanathaswamy temple’s base might be affected if the explosions were carried out to break the Ramar Sethu.

Besides, the fishermen would find it difficult to net fish.

Earlier, thousands of people participated in the Mahayagnam and Abhishekam and offered worship to Lord Rama, praying for the “victory” of the peaceful agitation against damage to Ramar Sethu.

Sadhvi Ritambara, S Vedantham, all-India executive president of the VHP, and Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy were among those who participated in the yagnam.

The Ramar Sethu movement’s central body would meet in Delhi on August 30 to decide on future course of action. (Agencies)

Agitation to protect Rama Sethu
Monday August 27 2007 09:52 IST

BHUBANESWAR: Stepping up its campaign against the Sethusamudram shipping canal project that would demolish the Rama Sethu, considered to be the mythical bridge of Lord Rama, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has announced to launch a State wide agitation to protest the move of the Centre.
Justice (Retd) M Papanna of the Orissa High Court, academician Dr Ratnakar Chaini and Ramesh Chandra Tripathy, Dr Brahmananda Acharya, advocate Bipin Behari Rath have formed a Rameshwaram Rama Sethu Raksha Manch to spearhead the agitation.
Addressing a meeting in this connection, Justice Papanna said the Sethu that links Rameshwaram to Sri Lanka is not only an integral part of the Purana, it is also a symbol of India’s glory and respect. Billions of people of the country and the world have intrinsic faith on the structure and every person has the obligation to stand up for protection of the Sethu from demolition, he added.
Puri Shankaracharya Swami Nischalananda Saraswati has also taken up the issue of demolition of the Sethu urging people to thwart the attempts.

Hindus are under siege: Dr Subramanian Swamy
Sunday, 08.26.2007, 11:29pm (GMT-7)

India Post News Service

“The government of Andhra Pradesh had made a move to take over four of the seven Tirumala hills in Tirupati, which house the sacred Balaji Temple. But they had to quickly withdraw their move when Swami Dayanand Saraswati rallied a huge protest. So, all we need is a little protest and they will fall in line,” he said. On the Rama Setu issue, Swamy said he is fighting a legal suit to stop its destruction to make way for the Sethusamudram tunnel project as proposed by the government of India. Having received a stay from the Supreme Court, Swamy assured, “Nobody can touch the Rama Setu, and I can assure you that. It is sacred to Hindus and the Lord himself is there to protect it.” In order to fight the anti-Hindu forces, it was not enough for Hindus to merely affirm their Hindu identity by visiting temples and celebrating Hindu festivals like Diwali, he said.

Sunday August 26 2007 11:46 ISTVILLUPURAM: Tension prevailed at Villupuram railway station following disembarkment of volunteers belonging to the Ramar Sethu Raksha Vedhika group from various trains proceeding to Madurai on Saturday.
The railway police lathicharged them and chased them away from the platforms.
Because of this, the Vaigai Express left an hour late.
The volunteers were proceeding to participate in a massive protest meeting being organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Rameswaram on Sunday.
According to sources, a large number of volunteers, hailing from Andhra Pradesh, boarded reserved and unreserved compartments in Vaigai and Sethu Express trains at Chennai and Chengalpattu.
They were planning to take part in the meeting to protest against the alleged demolition of the Ramar bridge while executing the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project.
During the routine check, the TTEs found that many were travelling without tickets.
They directed them to disembark at the Villupuram railway station.
Angered over this, they raised slogans and attempted to block trains by squatting on the tracks.
The Railway police lathicharged the volunteers and prevented them from staging an agitation.

    If we fail to get a favourable response from SC on 31st Aug.’07, we should approach the International Court of Justice, if it is possible. We should also take up the persecution of Hindus in India,that is,their own land. Please consider whether these points are tenable.

    the appeasement of minorities should end. when no other country gives any recognition of its minorities, the Indian governments at the Center and States are playing with fire for long by indulging all activities against common interests of the only HINDU MAJORITY NATION in the world. They fail to understand that they are living in India because it is a it is HINDU INDIA, who has not been against any other culture and true to VASU DHAIVAKA KUTUMBAKAM, LIVE AND LET LIVE NATURE OF HINDUS. It is high time that HINDUS come under one umbrealla and BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.
