An Appeal to Hindu Voters, Leaders and
Activists





Subject:


Sonia- Singh Regime’s Religion based preferential
treatment in Education is divisive – The Principle of “Equal
Opportunity” must be applied in Education as in the Employment market:
Hindus have a right and responsibility to elect a Govt. that adopts
non-discriminative policies with universal application.



 

Respected Hindu Voters, Youth, Public and
Activists;

Aadarniya Hindu Leaders:

 

 

          At the very
outset we would like to remind you that education impacts on human development,
economic growth and conscious citizenry and it is a fundamental requirement for
a stable democracy. Considering these important functions of education the
Universal Declaration on Human Rights (1948) in its Article 26 recognized it as
a fundamental Human Right. Furthermore, the UN Convention on the Rights of the
Child, ratified by 192 countries in 1989, affirmed the right of all children to
free, relevant and quality education as it improves one’s quality of life,
quality of citizenship, political stability and democracy.

 

          Trampling
upon these universally accepted principles the Congress Govt. in India which
has been in power during most of the past sixty years, is busy deflecting
attention from its dismal failure to assure education for all children by adopting
preferential treatment for selected minorities (read Muslims and Christians).
This politically motivated strategy was engineered for improving its chances of
staying in power. The goal of education in India has to be creation of a
socially conscious, educationally competent and professionally productive
citizenry and not to fracture the Indian society into new segments of
dissimilar and unequal people leading to a disharmonious nation.
Public must be aware that such a strategy defeats the very purpose of
education. Like the “equal opportunity” in the job market India needs a
universal education policy benefiting all and discriminating none. By opting
for a change in this policy and changing the policy makers you can make the
educational future of your children more secure and stable.

 



With your unshakable resolve and determination
we can change this policy





during the
forthcoming election

.

 

          Under this
upside down policy the scheduled cast students have been receiving lump sum
grant as ANNUAL educational aid at the rate of Rs.140/- for lower primary
level, Rs.220/- for upper primary level and Rs.330/- for the high school level.
But the newly introduced plan of scholarships for minority students has
elevated this support system to Rs.10, 000/- per year limited to two students
in a family whose annual income is less than one lakh rupees. In fact, the
Paloly Mohammed Committee report went one more step forward and based on his
recommendations, Muslim girls shall receive scholarship of Rs.3000/- at degree
level, Rs.4000/- at post graduate level and Rs.5000/- for professional courses.
Additionally, the Muslim girls shall receive stipend while preparing for
competitive exams.
The non-Muslim and discriminated girls will pay the
price for being Hindus.

 

          In case of
higher education for MBBS, PG and Research, The SC/ST students must get 60%
marks and are allowed Rs. 3960 per year (Rs 330/ per month), but the religion
based minorities need to have only 50% marks and the degree, PG students
get Rs 6550/ per year while the M.Phil, Ph. D, students get Rs 35,100/ on
yearly basis (attachment A). This inequality is extremely prejudicial to Hindu
students and must be done away with.

 



          1)
Additional discrimination against Hindu students.  –





 


The Hindu students get loans at much higher interest rates i.e., 12
to 14 per cent per annum but minority students get student loan at 3 percent
per annum

from the National Minority Development & Finance Corporation
under the Union Ministry of Finance. This constitutes yet another financial
disincentive for being a part of the Hindu family. The proponents of this
discriminatory policy promoting inequality in the ranks of our young generation
must be sent packing.

 

          In the
field of commercial ventures to start a new business

Hindu
youth get loans from commercial banks at 15 to 18 per cent interest rates

and
have to arrange ‘margin money’ of 15 to 40 per cent of the project cost from
their private sources, balance comes from the bank. But minority youth have to
put in only 5 per cent of project cost as margin money from their private
source, other 35 percent is given by the National Minority Development &
Finance Corporation at 3 percent interest, and remaining 60 percent of finance
is given by commercial banks at two percentage points less than general lending
rate for Hindus. Why this step motherly treatment for Hindu students? They
should not have to suffer financial penalties for being Hindus.

 



With your unshakable resolve and determination
we can change this policy





during the
forthcoming election.



 

           


2)


 
Recognition of the Madrassa certificates on par with the CBSE and the SSLC
– by the Sonia- Singh regime and calling it ‘inclusive ‘development’ is
against national interest as it encourages a two society mindset :



 


 

Madrassas fundamentally negate the secular philosophy and inflict
a devastating body blow to the principles of Secularism. These radical Islamic
institutions are globally recognized as the nucleus–initiating stage for
furthering a skewed mindset into jihadi terrorism. They have also become
recruiting centers for the radical Islam’s jihadist brigades. The Indian Govt.
seems to be oblivious of the incessant Jihadi terrorist attacks on Hindu
India that could worsen by giving such facilities, recognition and the
prestige to these fundamentalist institutions without insisting on common
curriculum, openness and recruitment of staff from other communities.

 


         
It is the intransigence of the Muslim Leadership, Islamic social
structure and refusal to accept a Uniform Civil Code, amongst others that
are responsible for the Muslim educational backwardness.



The Muslims as well as Christians receive vast sums of money from abroad which
are spent on building thousands of Mosques and Churches and conversions. Those
funds could instead be utilized for improving education in these communities
thus cultivating new opportunities for their youth. Rather than penalizing the
tax payers for subsidizing the educational projects of these communities Govt.
would do well by guiding and advising them how and where to spend the funds
gotten from foreign sources. Systematically investing enormous amounts to
expand conversions for changing the religious complexion of India is hardly
a legitimate educational activity.

 


         



3) Division of Indian nation into religion based categories
violates the constitution:



The irrational
educational policy of the Govt. has now divided poor Indian students into three
categories:



a) Preferred religious minorities (read Muslims
and Christians) with high financial assistance;



b) SCs and STs on a lower level; and,


c) Total exclusion of students from poor
Hindu families (all outside the first two categories) from the so-called upper
castes, who don’t get assistance worth even a paisa.


 


The preferential treatment to minority religionists –
Muslims and Christians – while ignoring the poor Hindu students with similar
economic status violates Article 15(1)


which clearly stipulates that
“The state shall not discriminate any citizen on grounds only of religion,
race, caste, sex, place of birth or any of them”. The Govt. cannot and
must not be allowed to enforce the constitution selectively for benefiting its
prospective voters.

 



With your unshakable resolve and determination
we can change this policy





during the
forthcoming election.



 



          4) Article 30, which allows minorities to establish and
run educational institutions, must be amended to end discrimination against
majority Hindus
:



 
In part III of the Constitution under “Fundamental Rights – Cultural
and Educational Rights”,

Article 30(1) specifies:
” All minorities, whether based on religion or language, shall have the
right to establish and administer educational institutions of their
choice.”  Now, after sixty years of independence, it is
essential that this Article be amended so as to end
discrimination and extend its applicability to Hindus as well. Such an expansion
will make this provision universal and secular in its character.

 

       
It is
obligatory upon theGovt.
to pursue the course that was decided by amending the Constitution in 2002 to
provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age of six to
fourteen years. This will inevitably uphold the principle of “equal
opportunity” in the educational field. Note should be taken of the fact
that western democracies that India
seems to imitate do not permit religion based distinctions. Therefore, India ’s scheme
of politically constructed categorization does not find support outside her
domain.
Recently
some 45,000 Schools and colleges run by Christian community went on one day
strike to protest the Orissa violence. The strike brought the educational
activity in the state to a stand still.

          If the
majority community was allowed the same privilege for establishing educational
institutions as the minorities, hundreds of thousands more schools run by
Hindus could have and can in future provide the much needed
help without interruption for educating the poor as a fundamental Human
Right.

 



With your unshakable resolve and determination
we can change this policy





during the
forthcoming election.

 

 



         
5) For the future of India
’s young generation, the Hindu samaj has to be assertive for gaining its
justifiable place in India
’s democracy. Only then pragmatic policy transformation would be possible:



The leaders
of the majority community, theHindus and the patriotic citizens, must realize that the
regime in office has proven incapable of handling the core issues like
terrorism, national security and rational education policy. For survival,
universal education policy and country’s political integrity it is the sacred
duty and “dharma”, of Hindus and other citizens  to elect
new leaders in the forthcoming Parliamentary elections, who will represent
them, care for their concerns and  implement the fundamental secularist
principles including, a rational and pragmatic education policy and
“Need not Creed” based state support.

 


         
For the bright future of our young generation and implementation of
non-discriminatory educational policy elections must be taken seriously for
they are the key to employment, communal harmony, national security and
prosperity. With this kind of important agenda at stake they must be contested
with missionary zeal at all levels.


 In these elections
Sonia-Singh and their team represent the current failed policies
and religion based divisive governance. In the present political landscape
of India
the other viable alternative seems to be the



BJP.
A commitment of support to it while holding the feet of the party leaders to
the fire is worth making for they have the capacity to bring about the
much needed change the people are craving for.

  



          6) Indian polity needs the best and the brightest


 in
its leadership class capable of turning the tide. Only the public revolt in
disgust over the unconscionable behavior of today’s bogus secularists will stop
them from turning India
into a clone of Islamists’ feudal vision.

Thankfully there is a growing
movement all across India
to rescue democracy from extinction at the secularist’s hands. For this gigantic task the spirit of devotion, sacrifice,
patriotism, hard work, organizational and communication skills will be of
primary importance. The idealism driven young generation should be on the
front seat to fuel a new uprising against the de-Indianised elite and the
tainted political practices. The youth, particularly the College students who
have the idealism, energy, maturity and drive for furthering the national cause
should whole heartedly plunge into this campaign.

 



          7) The principle of “equal opportunity” should be
applied as strictly in the educational field as it is applied in the job and
the employment markets.



  Universalist nature
of education policy is fundamental to India ‘s political unity, economic
progress and prosperity.  The continued punitive rule by Islamist,
communist, Evangelist and pseudo-seculars’ alliance might force majority Hindus
to live as poor and dependent colonial subjects – in a splintered India – a
situation that should be unacceptable even intolerable under any circumstances.

 


         
The struggle for abolition of the unequal education policy must be considered
our “Dharma Yudh” – the Dharma Yudh for rejecting the indignities and
inhumanities mounted on Hindu youth.


This is our struggle for
restoring the appropriate status of Hindus. This is our ‘sangharsh’ to
establish the rule of law and real democracy. Therefore, please put every
thing else on the backburner and get involved in this ” Dharma Yudh”.
Take leave from every thing else and work for the victory of Dharma and
become a part of this historic electoral campaign locally, in villages, amongst
Dalits, OBCs, etc.

 



         
8) Hon’ble Voters and leaders:  Sonia- Singh regime’s religion based
preferential scholarship scheme effectively rejects the concept of a democratic
secular society –



 


 


 Under this scheme:


 

a) The poor upper class Hindus, outside the SC and ST reservations
– sometimes called the Unreserved class –  who form 50% or more of
the population do not get even a “paisa” ;


 


 b) Muslims and Christians,
the main beneficiaries of this Govt. sanctioned loot get huge support,
like the Colonial rulers over Hindu India; and


 


 c) the SCs and STs with
Constitutional safeguards comparatively get a pittance. Such Govt.
strategy will only defeat the very purpose of universal education. Depriving
any community from resources and assistance for education in comparison to
preferred religious communities should be considered a crime against the Indian
nation.

 

           

The
success in the fast approaching electoral war is vital for our plans to reform
the education policy. By virtue of being the national majority the Hindus, who
have the greatest stakes in this change, cannot escape their responsibility to
spearhead it and take it to a logical conclusion.


The
manipulators of the Indian political system have reduced Hindus to a non-entity
and second class citizens.  Such status for a strong national majority is
as undemocratic as it is humiliating. They must therefore, refuse to accept
such an indignity. As a meaningful yet constructive retaliation they need to
mobilize, take initiative, come forward, assume leadership and offer a
patriotic alternative. It is their obligation to prepare and

    Think and move at this cross road
    India is my country. All Indians are my brothers and sisters.
    But scholarsips are for “M” brother. Educational institutions are reserved for “C” brother. Employment opportunities are reserved for them.Those who come to the college in motor cars and bike take away scholarships. There is no one to speak about poor and needy. Becuause I do belong to any vote bank. If anyone dare to speak, he is branded as communal. What a tragedy?
    India is my country. All Indians are my brothers and sisters! 5

    Vote for “Equal Opportunity in Education
    from the past 60 years of experience it is clear that special quota in education , job and in other govt. things will be a threat to India’s Growth. it will make those with less qualification and skills to do jobs which needed much skills which result in making our country’s quality much worst.
    Even after 60 years if we cant make any equality among people , then we have to rethink whether our current policies are sufficient to remove the inequality in the society. 5
