Reinstate Hanuman flag or face consequences: VHP to Government

Mandya, Feb 9 (IANS): The VHP on Friday warned the Karnataka Government that if the Hanuman flag removed by the authorities was not reinstated, the Siddaramaiah Government would be responsible for the consequences.

Addressing a gathering during a protest to condemn the removal of a Hanuman flag from a mast in Keragodu Village in Mandya district, VHP leader Sharan Pumpwell stated that if the flag was not reinstated, the Hindu organisation and Bajrang Dal would launch a ‘Keragodu Chalo’ agitation.

“All members of the VHP and Bajrang Dal will congregate in Keragodu Village. Even if cases are filed against us or we face resistance, we will reinstate the Hanuman flag at any cost. The state government would be responsible for the consequences,” he warned.

“Today, the recital of Hanuman Chalisa was done in every district of the state. The Hanuman flag was removed all of a sudden following the orders of CM Siddaramaiah. The flag used to be hoisted there for decades without controversy. For vote bank politics, the National Flag was hoisted there by removing the Hanuman flag. The villagers are saying that they will install another flag post,” he stated.

Sharan stated that there is an anti-Hindu government in the state who used the ploy of banning the Bajrang Dal to win Assembly elections.

They were able to make Muslim voters happy but till date the government is not able to ban Bajrang Dal and it won’t be possible in future as well, he added.

    During the assembly elections chaiwala raised the issue of Hanuman and lost Karnataka assembly elections. This is the second attempt of the bhaktas. Surely they will loose and will get cows ghoos.

    Dear all Sharan pumpwell is a good person indeed, why don't any one will refit the flag back into the original position. why unnecessary tension , just close this issue, it is nothing but creating tension between the parties, why, people who does not have enough full time work is doing all these things. also people are looking for a chance to create tension between the groups. why ? why? why? be generous and keep calm atmosphere always. creating the tension between the parties is not a good sign of aatmosphere.

    BJP Govt. And its Andh bhakts have no other agenda other than using bulldozer and religion as a talking point. They commevery possible situation and They present a white paper which only goes in circles and talks of failures of previous competent governments and hide their failures in thae last 10 years using diversionary and divisionary tactics.People of Karnataka booted them out and same fate should follow in the general elections. They will systematically dismantle tfe Constitution and Judicial system and make a bannaba republic run by an autocrat if they are not shiwn tge door by tge boters.

    God will never like public display of ruckus over his symbols... Any love for God has to be inclusive... One corner village issue must not stop the heart beat of humanity... National flag holds highest reverence over any other flag... Unless India remains intact where in the world do we have freedom to raise any flag?... Religions are best kept within the walls of homes and compounds of places of worship... Fight for essentials of humanity.... Just go out in the streets and see the distressing state of few humans.... They live lives worse than animals...

    These aren’t the ordinary citizens joining the protests. Ordinary citizens having a 9-5 job are at their work place. These are the jobless , uneducated people who are paid money by these groups to take part in the so called protests. These so called groups are in turn paid larger sums on money by the bigger parties to create unrest for political gains. In Karnataka all the nautanki and ruckus is created by just these 2-3 groups.
