Mangalore, Nov 8: Delivering the keynote address at the protest meeting organized on Friday November 7 in front of the office of the deputy commissioner here by the Dakshina Kannada district Swami Lakshmanananda Homage Committee, ex-MLC Balakrishna Bhat urged the governments to respect the sentiments of the majority Hindus. “The Hindus have awakened. They cannot tolerate continued assault on their religion by others,” he claimed.

Alleging that Marxists, missionaries and Muslims have been relentlessly attacking Hinduism, he urged the government to restrain religious conversions by enacting suitable laws. “If it fails to do so, we will take suitable steps. The politicians should refrain from indulging in vote bank politics,” he said. Bhat said, that the inability of the government to arrest culprits who murdered Swami Lakshmanananda Saraswati even after 75 days of his death, has pained the Hindus and urged the government to act fast on the issue.

In his address, Satyajit Suratkal asked the union government to meet its assurance of arresting the accused in connection with the Swamiji’s murder.

Regional president of Vishwa Hindu Parishat M B Puranik read out a memorandum addressed to the central and Orissa governments.  Various leaders were present.
