Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan has sought the dismissal of the Narendra Modi-led central government for “failing to protect the minorities in the country” and clamping of emergency in the country.

Alleging that the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh was pursuing an agenda to make the country a ‘Hindu rashtra (Hindu nation), the urban development and minority affairs minister said in a statement issued late Sunday that President Pranab Mukherjee take note of the deteriorating situation and dismiss the government without any delay.

The controversial minister had earlier threatened to petition the United Nations in the wake of the Dadri lynching.

Reacting sharply to Azam’s statement, state Bharatiya Janata Party president Laxmikant Bajpayi told IANS that it was “climbdown” for the minister who had earlier talked of petitioning the UN but was now talking of the president.

“Sanyukt rashtra se rashtrapati tak aana apne aap mein Azam Khan ki haar ko darshata hai (Moving from the UN to the president indicates Azam Khan’s defeat),” he said while adding that the demand for the dismissal of central government was laughable.

“There is no history of dismissal of a union government by the president, though there are umpteen examples of state governments’ dismissals. I guess Azam Khan is indirectly seeking the dismissal of the Akhilesh Yadav government,” Bajpayi added.

“In case Azam Khan means the dismissal of the state government, I too support him as the security and well-being of all sections of society, including the Muslims, has been compromised under the Samajwadi Party (SP) government,” the state BJP president said.

World Hindu Congress: RSS Chief says that Hindus Don’t Aspire to be Dominant

Hindus don't oppose anyone, don't aspire to dominate: RSS chief

Asserting that Hindus neither oppose anybody nor aspire to dominate, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Saturday said the community needs to unite to end its centuries of sufferings.

Speaking at the 2nd World Hindu Congress here, Bhagwat said the key to unite the world is to control ego and accepting the consensus.

“We do not have any aspects of dominance. Hindus do not live to oppose anybody. We even allow the pests to live. There are people who may oppose us. You have to tackle them without harming them,” said Bhagwat addressing delegates from across the globe.

“Why are we suffering for 1000 years? We had everything but we forgot to practise values. We also forgot to work together. Hindu society has largest number of meritorious people in many sectors. But they never come together, stay together.

“Coming together of Hindus itself was a difficult task. Earlier, when our Swayamsevaks would try to organise people, they would say ‘a lion never walks in a group’, but even that lion or a Royal Bengal tiger who is the king of the jungle… if he is alone, wild dogs together can invade and destroy him…,” he said calling upon Hindus to unite.

The 2nd World Hindu Congress is being held on the occasion of 125th Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic speech at the Parliament of World Religions in 1893.

Talking about uniting the world, Bhagwat cited the example of Lord Krishna and Yudhishthir from the Mahabharata, who he said never contradicted each other.

“One of the key values to bring the whole world into a team is to have controlled ego and learn to accept the consensus.

“It is time the Hindu society showcased its oneness to the world and went back to its ancient wisdom and values,” Bhagwat said.

“Of all the main characters, Krishna never contradicted Yudhishthir and Yudhishthir never disobeyed Krishna because it is important to work unitedly, keeping your ego aside,” he added. (IANS)
