Vishva Hindu Parishad, the right-wing Hindu nationalist organization has decided to fight caste divisions within the Hindu society to promote intra-religious unity.

In a bid to unite Hindus of Uttar Pradesh, Praveen Togadia led VHP has coined the slogan, Ek Kuan, Mandir aur Shamshan, Hinduon ki Yahi Pehchan ( Same well, temple and cremation ground for all Hindus). The slogan aims to hit at the root of caste based discrimination which prohibits members of lower castes to use the same well, temple and cremation ground being used by the members of upper castes.

The organization has decided to launch a program called Hindu Parivar Mitra, to bring the Hindu society closer by promoting commensality among different caste members. The program will encourage people to break the barriers of caste.

“We have also decided to launch the Hindu Parivar Mitra campaign. Conceived by VHP working president Praveen Togadia, the idea of this campaign is to unite the Hindus. Irrespective of their caste, all Hindus should share meal with each other. They should be part of each other’s happiness and sorrow.” Sharad Sharma, VHP’s Ayodhya chapter spokesperson said.

He also said that the target of the program would be to form one lakh Hindu Parivar Mitras in the country within a year.

The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.

The order was one of the promises of CM Yogi Adityanath to make his vision of modern madarsa true. Earlier, he had rejected the demand of shutting down of Madarsas stating that it will not help eradicate the basic problems and he further gave a view of modernized madarsa by including modern subjects. The recommendation, made on 15th May, also stated to follow the syllabus and books of NCERT. The suggestions were accepted by the cabinet on 22 May.
