`Agnivesh should be punished for Amarnath yatra remarks`
Srinagar: A Kashmiri Pandit body on Sunday demanded that social activist Swami Agnivesh be punished for his "blasphemous" remarks against pilgrimage to Amarnath cave.
All Parties Migrant Coordination Committee (APMCC) also burnt an effigy of the social activist, who last month here had said that "he does not understand why people go for such yatras" and termed the "shivlingam" formed inside the
Amarnath cave as a geographical phenomenon.
"We ask the Hindu countries of Nepal, Mauritius and India to boycott Swami Agnivesh," APMCC chairman Vinod Pandit said.
Pandit also "warned" Jammu and Kashmir chief Minister Omar Abdullah and Governor NN Vohra not to allow such "so called mahatmas" to enter the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
"If Swami Agnivesh again tries to come here, the consequences will be dangerous for either him or us," Pandit said.
APMCC also condemned the forceful eviction of Baba
Ramdev from Ramlila Maidan in Delhi last night.
