Standing before the microphone at Vismaya Studio in Kochi, Southern Superstar Mohanlal said: Samsritam kevalam upanayana samskaravataam panditaanaam tatha devasambandhaanaam stotranaam eva bhasha iti ya vadati sa doore tishtatu. Sanskrit was flowing like a river from his tongue that set fire to cinema theatres. Lal was bowing his head once again before the language of the gods, which fills the soul of Indian culture.
Jammu-Kashmir Study Centre organised a function in New Delhi on May 9 to release four books on Kashmir. Three books were written by Shri Dayasagar while one was written by Shri Ashutosh. Releasing the books, Shri Ashwini Kumar, editor of Punjab Kesari, said Pakistan has now joined hands with China to snatch Kashmir from India. “Since America is reluctant to continue support to Pakistan on Kashmir, Pakistan has now joined hands with China. The friendship has grown so close that Pakistan has gifted a portion of Karakoram to China and now over 18,000 Chinese army personnel are deployed in PoK. Amidst such threats the new generation of the country is ignorant of the facts on Kashmir. Educating them with all the facts is the need of the hour,” he added. Former Deputy Chairperson of the Rajya Sabha Dr Najma Heptullah, president of the Jammu-Kashmir Study Centre Shri Jawaharlal Kaul, Col (retd) Shri Jayavansh Singh, the RSS Akhil Bharatiya Sahsampark Pramukh Shri Arun Kumar, RSS National Executive Member Shri Indresh Kumar and senior BJP leader Shri Kidarnath Sahni were also present.

“The Amarnath Yatra Shrine Board is only a service providing agency to the pilgrims and not the administrative authority to take decisions on pilgrimage. It is creating unnecessary controversy over the Amarnath Yatra,” said the VHP spokesperson Dr Surendra Jain. He was speaking at a Karyakarta Sammelan in Jammu on May 20. Accusing the Board for hurting the sentiments of Hindus, Dr Jain said 70 per cent officials in the Board are non-Hindus. He said the Yatra would commence from Jayeshtha Purnima on June 4 and 50,000 Bajrangis would join it. He also criticised the Governor of Jammu & Kashmir for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Hindu community by intentionally reducing the yatra duration.
