Declare Himachal as Hindu state: VHP

SHIMLA – The VHP has demanded that Himachal Pradesh be declared a Hindu state. The organisation, which ended its two-day conference at Solan on Tuesday, resolved to put pressure on the state government during the next Assembly session to make the declaration. About 95 per cent of the state’s population is Hindu, said a resolution adopted at the meeting. Karuna Prakash, regional organising secretary of the VHP, said, “Alarmed by increased cases of love jihad, conversions, and activities of Bangladeshi nationals, the VHP will hold a Vishal Hindu Sammelan in Shimla on May 9 to discuss major issues involving Hindus.” ~ ENS
