2C 1. HJS campaign to liberate Bhojshala (Shrī Saraswatī Temple) in Madhya Pradesh was promoted on FHA website and backlink was given to HJS site: 'Bhojshala' is an ancient and the only temple of Mata Shri Saraswati, built by Raja Bhoj in 1034 AD. Bhojshala was home to thousands of students and scholars and it was the main centre of education. Attacks on Bhojshala started from 1305 AD and the Muslims built today's Kamal Moulana dargah near Bhojshala.
2C 2. Hindus denied permission to perform pūjā and Muslims given the permission to offer Namaz in Bhojshala: In year 2006, Vasant (Basant) Panchami was on Friday, so the demand of the Hindus to perform puja in Bhojshala for the full day was refused and the police also used force against Hindu devotees and arrested many. Now this year 2013, again Vasant (Basant) Panchami happens to be on Friday and Hindu devotees are demanding to perform puja for the whole day and restrict Muslims to offer Namaz in Bhojshala on this day.
This campaign was initiated by Hindu Jāgruti Samiti (HJS) and Forum for Hindu Awakening supported this campaign by publishing it on its website and giving links to HJS website.
