Seva Bharati hands over newly constructed houses to Bhiansa victims

In the month of January 2020, some hooligans launched unprovoked, indiscriminate and savage attacks on the houses of unsuspecting, gullible and innocent Hindus living in the Korbagalli neighborhood of Bhainsa town, Telangana. The houses were reduced to cinders and all household items, clothes, etc., were totally damaged in these premeditated brutal attacks.

Seva Bharati of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh promptly came to the rescue of these unfortunate victims providing immediate succor and restoring some confidence in the abject people whose hopes were shattered.

Sewa Bharathi working in tandem with Kesava Sewa Samithi constructed 10 new houses at a cost of one crore rupees to be gifted to the ten affected families. On Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Sri Parag Abhankar, Akhila Bharatha Sewa Pramukh, handed over the new houses and a grand Samuhika Gruhapravesam (collective house warming ceremony) was conducted.

Speaking on this occasion Sri Parag Abhankar stressed the urgent need for unity among Hindus. The Hindu society must inculcate self-confidence and mutual generosity. He elucidated various social service activities and projects undertaken by Seva Bharati and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.

Member of Parliament of Adilabad, Sri Soyam Babu Rao, who also participated in the program, condemned the ruthless attacks on the Hindus of Bhainsa and promised that he will stand by the Hindus in their hour of need.

Sri Burla Dakshina Murthy, Sanghchalak of RSS Telangana, observed that Sewa Bharati’s initiative in building new houses is very reassuring. The program was attended inter-alia by Sri Krishnadas, Nagara Sanghchalak, Sri Rama Murthy and state General Secretary of Sewa Bharathi. Sri Harischandra, State president of Hindu Vahini and other well-wishers also attended the program.

During the January 2020 disturbances in Bhainsa, as many as 12 houses were partially damaged and 10 houses were totally gutted. Even vehicles were systematically torched. Noticing the grief-stricken and crestfallen plight of the people, many of the local volunteers of Sewa Bharathi swung into action and with the support of philanthropists and provided immediate assistance like food grains, assurance and daily needs to the members of the 22 families.

Sewa Bharathi volunteers, after providing immediate comfort to the victims, planned to construct houses on the victims’ own sites so as to instill confidence among people. So much so that the work of construction of 10 houses was undertaken with the cooperation of Telangana state Sewa Bharathi and Kesava Seva Samithi, Bhagyanagaram, and completed quickly.

A sense of togetherness, an awareness that we are all the children of Bharata Mata and we all form part of a large family has to be instilled in the Hindus. With this consciousness, we naturally come to the rescue of each other with a sense of brotherhood in the time of calamities. This was the very idea with which the construction of houses was taken up to mitigate the hardships of fellow Hindus. Many donors came forward due to which we could fulfill the project of providing 10 houses which actually accommodated as many as 50 persons. It is pertinent to note that almost all the victims come from a very poor backgrounds. Among the beneficiaries were a meat seller (katika), a small shopkeeper, a simple clerk, a widow and two farmers.

Sarada, one of the beneficiaries averred that it is very heartening that the Kesava Seva Samity and Sewa Bharathy could hand over the new houses that too in our own Basti in just 8 months’ time which has instilled confidence in us. She expressed her gratitude to the seva organizations.
