Transfer of seer's case to another State urged

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, NOV. 23. The head of the Visakha Sri Sarada Peetham, Sri Swaroopanandendra Saraswati, on Tuesday demanded that the case pertaining to the Kanchi seer, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi, be transferred to another State.

At a press conference, Sri Swaroopanandendra and Sri Nirmalasankara Sastry of the Saiva Peetham here said the case against the Kanchi seer was clearly part of an "anti-Hindu conspiracy" with the Tamil Nadu Government and the Chief Minister, J. Jayalalithaa, intent upon taking over the assets of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam.

He termed the Kanchi seer's arrest a direct attack on the Hindu religion and part of a wider conspiracy. However, the arrest of a 72 year-old person who was an acknowledged saint in pursuit of universal brotherhood and peace, was a case of "violation of human rights".

Sri Swaroopanandendra expressed concern at the increasing number of conversions of Hindus into other religions and said that a three-day conference on "Vedas and Agama Sastras" would be held in Hyderabad from January 27, 2005. It would be attended by most of the Jeers and thousands of citizens concerned about Hindu religion from all parts of the country.
