Right-wing Hindu party sets up first ‘Hindu court in line with Sharia courts’

Appointing Pooja Shakun Pandey as first judge of Hindu court

The members of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha set up the first Hindu court on the lines of Shariat (Islamic law) court on Wednesday. The court will aim to make decisions on Hindu affairs and will possess a court-like system equivalent of Darul Qaza (Shariat courts). The first judge of the court, Pooja Shakun Pandey, was also appointed in Sharda road, Meerut.

“We had challenged the establishment of Shariat Courts a few days ago and asked that they should not exist at all because there should be one constitution for all. We had even asked the government in a letter that we sent demanding this, that if our demands are not met, we will set up a similar court for Hindus. Since no action was taken in our favour, we set up the first Hindu court here on Wednesday,” said Pandit Ashok Sharma, national vice president of ABHM.

“We will deal with matters related to Hindus only and the issues will range from harassment of Hindu women, Hindu marriages, disputes of property or money, and many others. When the BJP came to power in the centre and the state, we had high hopes from them but since they have started playing divide and rule among Hinduson the basis of caste, Hindu court is a way to bring them together. We will have proper jails and our maximum punishment will be death,” Pandey said.

She had earlier been a professor five years back and holds a masters in Maths, Computer Science, and also is an M.Phil in Mathematics.

On October 2, the party will declare the court’s bylaws and appoint 5 judges in different parts of the country by November 15, so Hindus ‘can get justice at five different places’.

“The civil courts already have lakhs of pending cases and it gets difficult to get justice for a person who is poor. So by means of the Hindu court, people will be able to get quick and affordable justice,” Abhishek Agarwal, district president said.
