Mumbai: Airport Authority of India’s (AAI) decision to prohibit Swami Narendra Maharaj from carrying ‘Bhramadhand’ aboard the Lucknow-Mumbai flight, invited wide spread protest in Maharashtra by his followers. Swami’s followers were arrested in Mumbai and Aurangabad during protest in Mumbai and Aurangabad Airport. Maharashtra Legislative Council Deputy Chairman Vasant Davkhare directed the government to conduct an inquiry into the caning incident of the disciples of Swami Narendra Maharaj .

Few months back, Shankaracharya of Dwarka Peeth, was made to disembark from an Indian Airlines flight for carrying his holy dand, a thin bamboo stick which is a symbol of their spiritual designation, inside the aircraft cabin.The present incident confirms the conspiracy to harrass and hurt the  sentiments of  Majority Hindus at higher levels.
