Stone pelting, once a rare form of protest, has seen a surge in Bharat. It has fast become a prevalent means of agitation in certain ‘peaceful’ segments of Indian society. What makes this trend particularly unsettling is its use as a tool to suppress the Sanatana Dharma community, which seeks to practice its faith peacefully and without interference. Sanatani followers dedicated to their faith become targets of the ‘peacefuls’ solely because of their religious beliefs. Thus, these attacks not only violate the principles of religious freedom in Bharat but also threaten social harmony.

Motives Behind the Violence: Hinduphobia

The motives behind these stone-pelting incidents deserve careful examination. It is crucial to understand why certain ‘peaceful’ sections of society resort to such violent means to suppress Sanatana Dharma. The only possible explanation lies in the rise of Hinduphobia, which is being propagated by ‘sickularists’ under the pretext of minority appeasement and equality.

Hinduphobia, characterized by irrational fear or hatred of Hindus and Sanatana Dharma, is on the rise in Bharat. It is preached by the ‘Peaceful’ Politicians, it is preached by their Islamist zealot religious leaders, and it is taught by the extremists to the common man in the street. The nation, celebrated for its diversity, is grappling with the deliberate targeting of one of its oldest religions. Hinduphobic sentiments have infiltrated various aspects of society, including media, politics, and public discourse.

The surge in Hinduphobia is often rationalized under the guise of minority appeasement and the pursuit of equality. However, it is vital to acknowledge that genuine equality cannot be achieved by suppressing or discriminating against any religious group. Primarily, true equality necessitates the celebration of diversity. Secondly, the creation of an environment marked by mutual respect should be a concern for all communities. However, political minority appeasement has led to repeated stone-pelting incidents targeting Hindu processions.

Following are severe concerns raised in the aftermath of the Gujarat Stone Pelting incident:

  1. Communal Tensions: Such incidents can exacerbate communal tensions and disrupt the peaceful coexistence of communities in Gujarat and India. Are Sanatanis and Sanatana Dharma safe in India?
  2. Safety Concerns: Sanatani devotees participating in religious processions should be able to do so without fear of violence. Thus, ensuring the safety of Sanatana Dharma’s temples, rituals and followers should be paramount in Bharat. Will the government take strict actions to secure the safety of a common Sanatani?
  3. Pre-Planned Attacks: There is suspicion that these attacks were pre-planned. Thus, it underscores the need for thorough investigations to identify and hold accountable those responsible. Will the authorities be able to weed out the mastermind behind these ‘peaceful’ attacks?

Upholding Religious Freedom

Stone-pelting incidents targeting Hindu processions in Gujarat are a matter of grave concern. Therefore, is essential for law enforcement agencies to conduct thorough investigations to ensure that those responsible for these acts of violence are brought to justice. While maintaining communal harmony must be a collective goal, it cannot be at the cost of Sanatana followers and their security.

In a pluralistic nation of India, it is imperative to safeguard the principles of religious freedom and tolerance for all. Favoritism and appeasement of certain segments have given them the courage to use stone pelting as a suppression tactic. Additionally, hinduphobic content by the media has ensured the demonization of Sanatana Dharma and its followers. Such content should have no place in a society that cherishes its ‘secular’ values. Thus, Bhartiya Sanatani society must unite in promoting respect for Sanatana Dharma. Furthermore, they must compel the government to ensure that harmony for all religions does not make Hindus pay a price.
