Describing the murder charge against the Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi as "outrageous", the Kanchi mutt today expressed the hope that "the dark hour too shall pass".

"The Acharya had travelled more than a million kms on foot reaching more than 3000 villages and small towns in the past over 50 years and helping people affected by natural calamities like floods and earthquakes.

The simple, selfless saint of the masses is now facing an outrageous charge. Such a charge is directed against the very Acharya whose compassion has reached millions with his helping hand", one of the advertisements put out by the mutt in a leading daily said adding "it is indeed the darkest hour for his devotees and those interested in following the tenets of Hindu dharma".

Recalling an appropriate quote from late Mahaswami Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi, it said "with the blessings of the Mahaswami, this dark hour too shall pass".

Detailing his "selfless service" in over 50 years, another advertisement said "there are dark clouds on the horizon, which like all other clouds will disappear one day", obviously referring to his arrest.
