Sankaracharya's Arrest :Dalit Hindu Peoples' Sabha Condemns


'Kanchi seer has to be released immediately. Arresting him at mid-night  and throwing him into jail like an ordinary criminal is condemnable"  said Dalit Hindu Makkal Sabha".

"Besides doing spiritual work. the Swamigal was carrying on the work of  consolidation of the society, Education, and health .the arrest has been  carried out just to put hurdles in this work and to tarnish the image of  the Mutt. The other reasons are to appease the other religions the  threats of the anti-Hindu parties".

"Arresting a Hindu religious leader on false charges ,arresting him at  midnight and putting him in jail as an ordinary criminal has evoked the  opposition of the entire Hindu community. Hence he should be released  immediately. To show our opposition we had demonstrated twice under the  leadership of our state leader Ganesh.

If the seer is not released immediately a massive demonstration will be  organized." the release of the Dalit Hindu Makkal Sabha said.  (Dinamalr:21.11.04)

Mata Amritanadamayi Expresses Anguish At Seer's Arrest

"I am saddened by the arrest of Sri.Jayendra Saraswathi Swami" said Mata  Amritanandamayi , a great Hindu spiritual leader.

In a release she has said that" It is very sad. It seems like a dream.  The fact that the drama still continues, deepens the mental  wounds  .Great many Peetadhipathis during Sri Adi Sankara's time have been  safeguarding the Vedas. No one should try to weaken this heritage. It is  like mixing salt in the Milk of Gnana that has been given by the Vedas.  There may be differences in the society. But we must forget them and for  the sake of the Vedas and Adi Sankara we must unite. Otherwise the  differences will widen and give rise to more problems."  (Dinamalar;21.11.04)
