CHENNAI: Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi leader Thol Thirumavalavan and Left party leaders held a joint protest on Tuesday condemning the Centre for attempting to impose its Hindutva agenda on the country. The leaders called for unity of minorities and Dalits to fight against the ruling BJP carrying out its communal programme.

Thirumavalavan said while the Sangh Parivar outfits were raising communal issues and indulging in reconversion attempts, Prime Minister Narendra Modi remained silent showing neither willingness nor capability to curb such divisive efforts. Some Hindutva outfits were going to the extent of declaring Taj Mahal a symbol of shame and threatening to demolish it, he said.

The Dalit leader alleged Sangh Parivar organisations were resorting to forcible conversion of Christians and Muslims.

CPI leader R Nallakannu said the attempts to implement Hindutva would damage the secular fabric and create divisions among the people who were living in an amicable atmosphere.

CPM leader Arunan said the country was known for its unity in diversity and plurastic culture. Imposing a communal agenda was against the Indian ethos. Dravidar Kazhagam leader K Veeramani said the Hindutva forces were against the majority OBC, and SC and ST people.
