Sanatan Sanstha wants 'Secular' omitted in Constitution

Even as the present and former activists of 'Sanatan Sanstha' are under a cloud of suspicion for the murder of Narendra Dabholkar and Gauri Lankesh, the right-wing organisation on Monday demanded the word "secular" be removed from the Constitution. 

Besides, Sanatan Sanstha and Hindu Janjagriti Samiti also denied any involvement in any act of terror like blasts in Thane and Panvel near Mumbai or in Margao in Goa or the murders of Narendra Dabholkar, Govind Pansare, M M Kalburgi and Gauri Lankesh.
"According to our information, nine persons have been arrested by Maharashtra-ATS and CBI... none of them are 'sadhaks' (seekers) of Sanatan Sanstha... In fact, five names we heard for the first time," Sanstha national spokesperson Chetan Rajhans told a news conference. 

He also said in the charge sheets and remand applications, Sanatan Sansthan has never be named. 

"The Congress, Communists, some 'intellectuals' and thinkers are demanding a ban on Sanatan Sanstha...They should know this," he said.

Rajhans also said the word "secular" must be removed from the Constitution. When he faced a barrage of questions, Rajhans said: "This is not new...we have been demanding this for long. And we are demanding through Constitutional means," he said.

To a specific query, Rajhans said the Sanstha does not support or approve of violence in any form. "We are being defamed in a pre-planned manner," he added.
