Bagalkot: On the backdrop of the violence against Hindus in Bangladesh and Kashmir, Pejawar Seer Sri Vishwaprasanna Theertha Swamiji on Saturday urged the government to act before the situation gets out of hand.


The seer said that incidents of violence will take place in the world even if a single word is uttered against certain religions but Hindus do not have that violent mindset. It is not correct to subject Hindus to further harassment thinking that they do nothing and keep quiet,

“If the government doesn’t want its people to take the law into their hands, they should control the situation. The government should ensure the safety of all in society and not just people of one religion. People of all religions should live in peace,” he was quoted as saying by IANS.

“The government is there to ensure this. In case the government does not act in this regard there will be communal clashes and violence. Once it breaks out, then it won’t be possible to stop it,” he warned.

Further, the pontiff also stated “communal issues are discussed at the time of elections and gradually they fade out. Politicians issue statements to get votes from particular castes. But these statements will affect the harmony in the society. This should not happen.”


He expressed his happiness that granite stones from the Doddaballapur region in Karnataka will be laid at the foundation of Sri Ram Mandir at Ayodhya on which the temple will be built. “It is a matter of pride and honor for the people of Karnataka,” he said.
