Buoyed by Ayodhya verdict, VHP raises bar for ‘Hit Chintaks’ registration

New Delhi: Upbeat over SC’s verdict on the Ramjanmabhoomi issue, the RSS affiliate Vishwa Hindu Parishad has decided to garner 50 lakh ‘Hindu Hit Chintaks’.

A parallel to the membership drive, associating more ‘hit chintaks’ move was launched soon after the top court’s verdict is already attracting massive interest in the saffron outfit. The Hindu hit chintaks, as the members are known, will be working towards the betterment and improvement of the Hindu society including Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs.

“We used to have a target of around 30 lakhs but the kind of response we have got made us wonder if we could give a target of 50 lakhs. And the number of people that have approached us for registration making us believe that even target of 50 lakh is also less,” said Vagheesh Issar, in charge of the registration drive for Hindu Hit Chintaks and senior VHP functionary.

The drive has begun from November 24 and will culminate on December 8. The countrywide target set for the registration is 50 lakhs.

“Those from maths, temples, various religious organizations, RWAs, NGOs, market associations and political leaders along with Hindu refugees coming from Pakistan are being made Hindu hit Chintaks,” stated Issar.

He said that the membership drive is launched every three years and due to the positive environment the VHP has revised its target of new membership numbers.
