The Sanatan Sanstha, which has hit national headlines of late due to its suspected involvement in the killing of Communist leader Govind Pansare, is very clear about its ultimate objective: The establishment of a “divine kingdom” right here in India. Towards this end, it would like to abrogate democracy and the present Constitution, and instead set up a kingdom with a constitution based on the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Bhagwad Gita.
The kingdom would have a “varna” system of society organised hierarchically on the basis of caste. It would be a purely Hindu kingdom, with 30 per cent each of Brahmins, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas and 10 per cent Shudras. A system of population control would be enforced.
These aims are laid out in a book, Setting Up God’s Kingdom written by the Sanatan’s founder and leader, former hypnotherapist Dr Jayant Athavale and his wife Kunda. Spokesperson Abhay Vartak expressed the hope that the Divine Kingdom would soon come into existence.
