of Bajrang Dal
The Vishva Hindu Parishad decided to start the "Ram-Janaki Rathyatra" with the aim of awakening Society on October 1, 1984. There was nothing against any other religion in the Yatra, but certain
anti-Hindu and anti-social elements threatened dire consequences should the Vishva Hindu Parishad undertake it. The Uttar Pradesh Government, in spite of making sure that those elements would not disrupt
our Rath Yatra, refused to give protection to the Rath and its participants.
The Holy saints made a call for the Youth to protect the Rath. Hundreds of Youth gathered in Ayodhya and performed their duty very well. Thus the Bajrang Dal was formed - initially with a temporary and
localized objective to awake the youth of U.P. and to further their involvement in the Ram Janma Bhoomi Movement. The result of the this formation was amazing. Most of the young men were proud to be
affiliated with the Bajrang Dal. In 1986 the VHP decided to form the Bajrang Dal in other states as its youth wing. The role of Bajrang Dal in Hindu Awakening is not a secret: it has successfully gotten the
Hindu Youth involved in Ram Janma Bhoomi and other movements. This is evident from the tremendous success of various programs, i.e., Shila Poojan, Ram Jyoti Yatra, Kar Seva of 1990 and Kar Seva of
Bajrang Dal and Other Religions
Now, more than 5 Lakh active workers of Bajrang Dal, in units in all states of Mother India, are devoted to Her service and the service of Hindu Dharma. Their motto is
"Seva, Suraksha, Sanskar" (Service, Security, and Embellishment). The Bajrang Dal has been proven as a security ring of Hindu Society. Whenever there is an attack on Hindu Society, Faith and Religion, the workers of Bajrang Dal come
forward to its rescue. The Hindu Society and the Faith have been kicked and insulted by various forces for the last fourteen hundred years. Demolitions of more than 3,000 temples, fraudulent or forceful
conversion of crores of Hindus were the main tactics of these forces. The Bajrang Dal endeavors to put up resistance by democratic means against these unholy forces.
It is observed that of late thatanti-Hindu forces are increasingly involving themselves in a hate-campaign against the Bajrang Dal to malign its image. The Bajrang Dal is not against any religion. It acknowledges
respecting the faith of other people, but expects and asserts for a similar respect of the Hindu Sentiments. Being Hindu, the Bajrang Dal believes in validity of All Religions and Respect for all human beings,
irrespective of caste, color, and religion (Aatmasvat Sarva Bhuteshu). It is for this purpose that the Bajrang Dal has undertaken various public-awakening campaigns. It does not believe in violence or any
Hindus respect the cow as their sacred Mother. But some people in Bharat, unfortunately, claim the slaughter of the cow as a part of their religious rituals without caring for the Sentiments of their Hindu
brethren. Most states in India have laws prohibiting cow slaughter and the Supreme Court, too, has declared that cow slaughter can not be the religious right of any religion. Regardless, this crime is freely
committed simply to hurt Hindu feelings. The Bajrang Dal has saved more than 1,50,000 cows in the years 1996-97 alone. The Bajrangis are, in fact, trying to help respective State Governments in the
implementation of their Cow Protection Laws, as awakened citizens of a democratic Bharat. The Bajrang Dal strongly opposes those who violate the laws of land by slaughtering the cow.
Our ancient pilgrimage, the "Amar Nath Yatra", was on the verge of closure because of terror threats by Kashmiri Islamic Jihad terrorists. Hindu pilgrims were attacked countless times, but no one dared to
speak against the terrorists. In light of this situation, the Bajrang Dal made a call for 21,000 workers to be sent to the Yatra, but more than 50,000 workers reached Jammu for this purpose! The Government.
made special arrangements for this Yatra and the militants were pushed back. Our endeavors revived the prestige of our Holy Amar Nath pilgrimage, and as courageous Citizens of Bharat, the Bajrangis
challenged Islamic Terrorism.
Dal and Service to Down Trodden
The Bajrang Dal has mobilized thousands of youth across the country for social service activities for the benefit of our Scheduled Tribe and Schedule Caste brethren. The Bajrang Dal has launched character
building campaigns as well, enthusing in the youth an idealism of their country, leading hundreds of young men and woman to dedicate their lives to the full-time service of downtrodden countrymen and woman.
In the field of social service, Bajrang Dal workers also run numerous free-coaching centers and Sanskar Kendras. The Bajrang Dal also helps the organizers of several social and religious functions by
providing selfless workers who take the responsibility the of arrangement of their functions.
