The Vishwa Hindu Parishad threatens to launch a nationwide agitation to protest against continued attacks on tribes and other Hindus in Assam.  If the Union and Assam governments does not quell the violence against Hindus in Assam within 24 hours, the VHP will launch a major agitation, VHP International president G Raghava Reddy and joint general secretary Y Raghavulu have said.

 Speaking to mediapersons here on Friday, Raghava Reddy and Raghavulu said that illegal migration from Pakistan and Bangladesh into India had been growing for the past 15 years.  VHP International working president Praveen Togadia had written a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking an end to the violence, they said.

 They said terrorists from Pakistan and Bangladesh were entering India and killing innocent tribes and other Hindus and were occupying villages.  They said that as many as 500 villages were occupied by the infiltrators and over one lakh people taken shelter in camps in Assam.

 The central government did not take any action against the perpetrators of violence because of votebank politics, they said. Raghava Reddy and Raghavulu said terrorists were crossing into India with a five-point agenda: infiltration into Indian milieu, occupying lands, killing leadership, conversion of Hindus and increasing the population of their community.

 “Unfortunately, Indian political leaders are blind to the infiltrators' activities,'' they alleged.  VHP Threatens

HYDERABAD: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has threatened to launch a massive agitation against the state government if the missionary activities for propagation of 'non-hindu' religions in Tirupati is not curbed. Speaking to mediapersons, the Western Andhra secretary of VHP M Rama Raju said that the state government has failed to implement the act that prevents propagation of religions other than Hinduism in the seven holy hills.

 He alleged over 40 employees of the Tirupati Tirumala Devasthanams (TTD) have been propagating 'other' religions since the last few months.

 He demanded the government to identify the 'missionary' employees and remove them from services.  He also criticised the political parties for ignoring the issue of missionary activities in the TTD.
