Paramhans Acharya went on a hunger strike at 5:00 AM on Monday and announced that his protest would continue until the government gives him concrete assurances in this regard. He said, ‘When Hindus are in majority in the country, it should be called a ‘Hindu Rashtra’.
He further said, ‘six months ago, we wrote a letter to the President, Prime Minister, Home Minister and Chief Ministers stating that they would be forced to sit on an indefinite hunger strike if India was not declared a Hindu Nation on October 12.
It is worth mentioning that Parhannas Acharya had earlier gone on hunger strike to build Ram temple in Ayodhya. At that time his health had deteriorated due to the strike and then he ended it strike when Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath himself reached Ayodhya and assured him to build Ram temple.
On the other hand, since Sunday, Mahant Raju Das of Hanuman Garhi is on a hunger strike against the attacks and murders of saints in the country. He ended his protest on Monday after assuring strict action against the culprits.
