VHP - Media Statement by Ashok Singhal

The Government of India cannot arbitrarily transfer 123 prime and high-end properties, many of it at locations of strategic importance, to the Delhi Waqf Board without giving to the Hindu society the Ayodhya and Mathura sites of Lord Vishnu and the Varanasi site of Lord Shiva and some such sites in Delhi itself.

New Delhi, March 03, 2014 - The country was yesterday stunned to hear the Government of India’s Minister Manish Tewari say on the eve of the general elections that "The Cabinet has approved the denotification of 123 properties in Delhi under the control of the land and development office and DDA and allowing the title to revert to the Delhi Wakf Board!" This transfer of title would enable the Wakf Board to take a call on these high-end prime properties at locations of strategic importance including selling them. These properties are spread over prime locations in the capital such as Connaught Place, Mathura Road, Lodhi Road, Man Singh Road, Pandara Road, Ashoka Road, Janpath, Parliament House, Karol Bagh, Sadar Bazaar, Darya Ganj and Jangpura, etc. At present, about sixty of these 123 properties are owned by the Land and Development Office (L&DO) under the urban development ministry while the rest lies with Delhi Development Authority (DDA).

“In the absence of a national policy in the matter serving the cause of national and cultural interest of the country, the outgoing Government cannot, repeat, cannot simplistically and arbitrarily denotify and transfer high-end prime properties, many of it at locations of strategic importance, to members of its vote bank without giving to the Hindu society the Sri Rama Janma Bhumi at Ayodhya, Sri Krishna Janmasthan at Mathura, Sri Kashi Vishwanath Prakatsthal at Varanasi, Indraprastha Durg (5,000+ year old Capital Fort of the Pandavas of Mahabharat fame/Old Fort) near Delhi Zoo, the Vishnu Dhwaj (Qutub Minar) complex comprising of the Lal Kot Fort & Qila-Rai-Pithora of the Rajput kings that housed a complex of twenty-seven ancient Hindu and Jain temples which were destroyed by Jihadists and their material used in the construction of the Quwwat-ul-Islam (Might of Islam?) mosque which pattern of terrorist statement they made everywhere else including at the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, the holiest site in Judaism, superimposing on it the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They have made similar land-grabbing political statements on over 30,000 places of worship of the Himalayan Tradition all over Bharatvarsh,” warned Shri Ashok Singhal, Patron, Vishva Hindu Parishad.

Such conferring of largesse of public properties to its vote bank by the UPA-II Government driven under its unpardonable policy of appeasement for the sake of Vote-Bank Politics and Burqa Secularism is totally unlawful and unconstitutional, which will be fought tooth & nail by the Hindu society.

Vishva Hindu Parishad urges upon the Government of India to rescind and make null & void the said Cabinet approval of “denotification of 123 properties”! The UPA Government has perhaps done it as per the suicidal policy declaration by its Prime Minister in December-2006 that “Muslims must have first claim on national resources!” The UPA Government, it is now absolutely clear, is there only to serve the Muslim community and the national society counts not for it which is why it dares to oppress the latter’s nationalist interests at will. The Hindu society warns the Central Government that plays its tricks on it from behind its cloak of pseudo-secularism that it can no longer bear such humiliation and fraud!

Vishva Hindu Parishad is writing to His Excellency President of India Shri Pranab Mukherjee to intervene in the matter and restrain his Government.
