A three-day meeting of the Vishva Hindu Parishad began here today with the organisation vowing to make a unified and prosperous Hindu society where there is no place for untouchability.
Chaired by Jagadguru Shanakaracharya Swami Vasudevananda Maharaj, the meeting adopted a resolution for creation of a unified and prosperous Hindu society which is absolutely free from the evil of untouchability and segmentation of any kind.
Untouchability never got social acceptance in Hindu religion which treats all living beings as equals. All Hindus are one and they should work unitedly to open the doors of their temples and other religious institutions to everyone irrespective of their castes, the resolution said.
Untouchability elimination, countrywide ban on cow slaughther and early construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya are on top of the agenda for the three-day VHP meeting being attended by its international executive president Praveen Togadiya and organisation general secretary Dinesh Chandra, among others.
