Attack on Saints & Sadhus continues in Kerala

via HK Correspondent published on August 25, 2008

KOCHI : Communist goons are still restless. They are hell bent on destroying the lives of saints / Sadhus, as a new way of implementing their so-called ‘secularism’!!!


Vinu Swamy of Buddha Vihar Avadhoot Ashram at Cheemeni, a village in Payyannur, North Kerala, already a victim of a brutal attack by the native communist goons, is being targeted again !! This time, it is not the Ashram (as it has been reduced to a rumble of ashes in the previous onslaught), but the beautiful jungle that surrounded its premises.. The communist talibans started their 2nd part of operation – ‘Secular Kerala’, by cutting down the majority of tress.. Vinu Swamy, who started the Ashram on this same place 20 years back, turned a land of barren rocks into a nature’s haven with his selfless service and divine love for environment. This place, which was a treat for environment enthusiasts, is now fast turning into a barren land once again thanks to the grace of our ‘secular’ communist leaders!!


The Swamy is yet to recover from the onslaught of these desi talibans on 22nd May 2008, during which a priceless collection of 10,000+ books, invaluable photos of sacred pilgrim spots, rare stamp collections, pooja utensils, food amenities, kitchen equipments, land phone, ..etc. all turned into ashes… Not to mention the man-handling, which cost Swamy his hair & beard!! What a wonderful way to express the spiritual and cultural heritage of Kerala to outside world!! Now, the Swamy is regularly receiving death treats, and it is doubtful whether he will survive another such attack..


Now one question remains.. What was Swamy’s fault ?? Is it his self-less service or is it being a Hindu ?? Why hindus suffer the back-lash again & again while people from other faith are enjoying themselves despite of proven charges of out of the way activities?? It is shell-shocking to see the plight of spiritualists in so called ‘God’s own country – Kerala.. Is this the way to return the services offered by the Saints / Sadhus, who do not live for themselves but for the service of the mankind??


It is now or never for the hindus that if they fail to uphold the ‘Sanathana Dharma’, and protect their cultural heritage, then worst has to come because our power-greedy politicians are fast eating out once a glorious linage.. As Swamy Vivekananda has said, “ARISE!! AWAKE!! STOP NOT TILL THE GOAL IS REACHED!!” It is our duty to up-hold his message now..
