Last week, a group of Hindu activists, intellectuals and professionals from all parts of the country gathered to deliberate upon and draft a charter of Hindu demands which was released in a press conference in New Delhi.

The charter consists of 8 demands, each of which is of importance to Hindus if we are to sustain and prosper as a civilization and people.

HinduPost decided to interview two of the activists who played a role in framing this charter, Dr. Amit Thadani & Hariprasad Nellitheertha, to understand the thinking and rationale behind each of these demands.

One Thought on “Why the Charter of Hindu Demands Matters? A Must-Watch Interview”

  • Namaskaram Sir,

    It is a known fact that the rich hindu culture is embedded in our ancient sanskrit/tamil and other regional language scriptures and literature and much of it has been lost unfortunately. Previous governments have intentionally killed sanskrit by naming it a dead language so that we are distanced from it, cannot read/write and understand. Hindu culture is constantly targeted from outsiders and now we are placed in a position that we are confused and unable to defend and are made to feel inferior.

    Whereas making indian languages mandatory for primary education is a welcome move, making sanskrit compulsory besides mother tongue, from upper primary up to 12lth grade helps protecting the language. It enables students to learn the language and understand the culture it relates to at the right age. Research also shows that sanskrit is the best language to store Data and Knowledge according to NASA and it also enhances the child’s memory. I am told that The battle for Sanskrit book from Rajiv Malhotra ji explains the worst phase that sanskrit has gone and is still going through. If we want to save hindu culture and pass it on to the next generations, we have to emphasise on imparting the language in which the entire cultural repository is stored.

    In the name of secularism, hindus are discriminated and the culture has become an intentional target of neglect. An important step, apart from dividing and converting hindus, in this process was to ensure that sanskrit which upholds this culture to diminish gradually. It is high time that India needs to adopt a clear state policy when it comes to protecting this lonely surviving millenia old ancient culture as identified by UNESCO. If needed, special provisions must be made constitutionally to make sanskrit education compulsory in secondary education.

    I would greatly appreciate if you can discuss this and include it in the list of demands.

    Thank you.
    Anantha Komanduri
