Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international vice-president Acharya Giriraj Kishore gave a call to Hindus to stand united in fighting the Islamic fundamentalists. The VHP leader was at Jammu on a two-day visit to take stock of the situation after the terrorist attack on the Raghunath Temple.

The angry VHP leader the attack as an assault on the Hindu culture, religion and social heritage. He asked the Hindus to accept it as a challenge to thwart similar attacks in future. Criticising pseudo-secularists for maintaining a criminal silence over this attack, he said, this attack was aimed at demoralising the nationalist forces in the State.

Addressing a mammoth gathering, Shri Giriraj Kishore said, "It is all due to the appeasement policies of 'secularists' that Islamic fundamentalists have been fanning in different parts of the country". These pseudo-secularists are more dangerous than pan-Islamic terrorists organizations, he said and added that these elements have been supporting Islamic terrorists outfits just for consolidating their vote-banks.

Accusing the so-called secular parties of adopting double-standard he regretted, "Since Independence these parties have been nourishing Islamic fundamentalism just for the sake of their petty political gains".

On the one hand these pseudosecularists have been raising hue and cry over Gujarat riots but on the other hand they have maintained criminal silence over atrocities being meted out to Hindus in J&K, he said and lambasted 'secular' outfits for not taking up the causes of lakhs of Kashmiri Hindus who were forced to leave their homes and hearth due to the threats of Islamic fundamentalists.

The time has come for the Hindus to realise that "self help is the best help" and constitute defence committees, ward committee and village committees for the protection of the community members. They cannot depend any longer on the Government for the protection, he said.
