VHP’s international working president Praveen Togadia strongly criticized the central government’s decision to provide reservations to Muslims and Christians and urged the governments of centre and some states to seek apology from Dr. Bheem Rao Ambedkar for this decision.
After garlanding the statue of Dr. Ambedkar Praveen Togadia said that Dr. Ambedkar had presented the positive vision of providing reservations to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes in his constitution so that the socially backwards come out of poverty and prosper and can walk ahead with other communities.
Dr. Ambedkar had strongly opposed providing reservations on religious basis in Indian constitution. He felt that if reservation is provided on religious basis then true development and social unity will get affected. He said.
He said VHP wants that central and state governments do not provide reservations to Muslims and Christians. He said central and state governments should revoke announcement of reservations and apologize Dr. Ambedkar.
