Vishva Samvad Kendra (media wing of RSS) and Gautam Buddha University organized a two-day Conclave on “Conversion and Reservation” that was sponsored by ICSSR. VHP Spokesperson and eminent speaker Prof. Pravesh K. Chowdhary acted as a moderator at the event. Several renowned personalities attended the event, including Ex-Cabinet Minister Sanjay Paswan, General Secretary VHP Surendra Jain and International Working President of VHP Sr. Advocate Alok Kumar.
The concerned Conclave discussed whether Reservation for Hindus converted to other religions is justifiable or not. The event further witnessed around 60 plus research papers and addresses of 40 plus speakers from all across the nation.
This mega event on “Conversion and Reservation” was attended by nearly 150 personalities, including Seven retired judges, Seven Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors of different universities, more than 30 prominent professors and lecturers, eight eminent lawyers, several chairmen and vice-chairmen of various organizations and an immense number of members from RSS, VHP and other similar bodies.
During the inaugural session of the Conclave, Ex Union Minister Sanjay Paswan, Working President of VHP, Sr. Advocate Alok Kumar, and Vice Chancellor of Gautam Buddha University showered light on the topic.
The hidden and manipulated past over the Conversion history, Reservation Policy and role of minorities has been very well presented in a right and exact way by the academicians, speakers and researchers. The research papers, theories and references of the academicians were eye-opening.
The Conclave promoted the notion of respect towards every sect of Indian society but also exposed those who committed educational and cultural atrocities. Chairman of DICCI Padma Shri Milind Kamble said that the provision of reservation was made to give proper representation to those who had less representation in the mainstream.
General Secretary VHP Surendra Jain, Justice of Telangana High Court B Siva Shankara Rao and other personalities concluded the Conclave. In the end, Justice B Siva Shankara Rao questioned that; “the definition of conversion says that you totally abandon the faith. And if you have left your faith, then why demand reservation and benefits are given under that?” Thus, ended the Conclave with open ending remarks.
Therefore, the Conclave on the topic “Conversion and Reservation” showed the truth of reservation policy and the assault of Schedule Castes and tribes at the hands of these so-called minorities. The vision of organizing this Conclave was filled with the radiance of hope in bringing betterment to society and eliminating negative thoughts and practices.
