After Army, Police, Government Officials, Education now saffron colour enters in the finance department also. Latest I have come across coin of Rs. 5 on which one side is legal constitutionally correct embalmed with Government Raj Mudra, whereas other side of the coin reflects the saffron colour, engraved with the statue of Vaishnodevi. What is the status of Vaishnodevi? legally, constitutionally democratically. Statue of Vaishnodevi is religiously worshiped by Hindus that does not mean she holds the legal or constitutional value. How Finance Ministry allowed embalming one side of the coin with unconstitutional statue, which does not hold any constitutional value. That is grave violation of the constitution, because India is a secular country and emblambed a religious structure of particular religion on the Government currency is the violation of constitution of India and its secular status is in jeopardy.
Either Government has to amend the constitution and embalmed the statue of Vaishnodevi as the new Government Raj Mudra, or Government has to remove circulation of all such types of coins with immediate effect.
It is request
1. Kindly remove the circulation of unconstitutional currency, with immediate effect, which hurts the religious sentiments of others.
2. Finance Ministry has to submit its say behind unconstitutional act of the government.
3. Any other relief as the authorities deem fit and proper.
