He was addressing mediapersons at the Press Club on Friday, February 6.

Dignitaries from the community, swamijis, heads of various organisations and general public will participate.

“Our intention is to create awareness about patriotism, religion, culture and language among people. It is also a forum to discuss problems. The Samajotsava is also a forum for the organization to draw attention to the pressing problems that members of the Hindu community face such as cow slaughter, Love Jihad, religious conversion, and exploitation of women. It is also our endeavor to show to the world that the Hindu community, despite its frailties, is united and one,” he said.
