BHUBANESWAR: Jagadaguru Swami Nischalananda Saraswati, Shankaracharya of Puri Govardhan Peeth downplayed the threat of CPI (Maoist), which warned the seer with dire consequences. The outfit in a threat letter, sent to the Govardhan Peeth in Puri, alleged that the Hindu Seer has been spreading communal feelings and dividing the society on religious lines.
Speaking at a press conference here, the Shankaracharya however indirectly attacking on church, said, ?I am not worried by the threat call issued by an outfit. I see some others behind the nexus than the CPI (Maoist).?
He apprehended that some international forces have been working overtime to eliminate Hindus and destroy their age-old culture to register their dominancy in the country.
The Seer charged that Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre is patronising anti-Hindu elements in the country. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi have been making all out efforts to appease the minorities, he lambasted. Minority appeasement is the root cause of all existing problems in the country, he argued.
?Majority Hindus are feeling prosecuted in India,? he added. For vote bank politics, they could go to any extent, the Seer charged referring to large-scale conversion to Christianity.
The Seer further said ?I am not feared for my life but I am worried for the survival of Hindu society and its culture. I am not demanding adequate security for my protection.? The Shankaracharya however supported a bandh call given by the Sangh associated organisations for December 25. Govardhan Peeth is one of the four important mutts of Hindu faith in the country founded by Adi Shankaracharya.
