The draft constitution aims to shift the national capital from New Delhi to Varanasi, and also proposes the establishment of a Parliament of religions in Uttar Pradesh’s Kashi.
NEW DELHI — A section of the seers and experts are finalising the draft constitution of India as ‘Hindu rashtra’ and according to reports the draft is scheduled to be presented during the Prayagraj Dharam Sansad that will be organised during Magh Mela 2023.
Haridwar Dharam Sansad seer Anand Swaroop released a preamble for the constitution, which states that minorities, specifically Muslims and Christians, will be barred from voting.
According to the draft, Muslims and Christians will enjoy all the rights of a common citizen, barring the right to vote. They would be welcome in the country to do their businesses, get employed, education and all the facilities that are enjoyed by any common citizen, but they won’t be allowed to use their franchise.
The first draft outlines the major changes in the field of education defence, law and order, a system of voting, and the rights of the head of state.
Another notable aspect of the draft is that it aims to shift the national capital from New Delhi to Varanasi, and also proposes the establishment of a Parliament of religions in Uttar Pradesh’s Kashi.
As per the proposed constitution, the current parliament will be replaced by a 543-member Dharam Sansad. Gurukuls will replace the education system, and old laws will also be scrapped. Military training would be compulsory for each and every citizen. Agriculture would be completely exempted from taxes. It is to be noted that during the Prayaraj Dharam Sansad in February 2022, a resolution was passed to make India “A Hindu Nation.”
“The constitution will be of 750 pages and its format will be discussed extensively now. Discussions and debates will be held with religious scholars and experts of different fields. On this basis, half the constitution (around 300 pages) will be released in the Magh Mela-2023, to be held in Prayagraj, for which a ‘Dharam Sansad’ will be held,” said Swami Anand Swaroop, president of the Varanasi-based Shankaracharya Parishad, according to a report published in Hindustan Times.
Swami Swaroop said 32 pages have been prepared so far spelling out aspects related to education, defence, law and order, system of voting, among other topics.
The cover of the draft also depicts the map of the proposed “Akhand Bharat” which aims to merge countries that have separated from India.
