One of Fiji’s main Hindu organisations has called for coup makers to be slapped life imprisonment.

As well as handed life imprisonment, the Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha in their submission to the Constitution Commission which was presented by its national president Pundit Diwan Maharaj said those involved in coups should not be allowed to run in any parliamentary election.

He further said that officers of the Fiji Military force needed to be actively engaged in promoting peaceful co-existence of communities in Fiji by conducting campaigns, workshops and seminars across the country regularly.

Maharaj also suggested on behalf of the Sabha for military officers to assist in carrying out development projects in the nation that will assist in eradicating poverty and unemployment.

He also called for a Law to be developed to provide protection for all citizens’ freedom of religion and cultural activities.
