Anna Hazare asked to leave Swami Agnivesh
Haridwar: An apex body of sadhus and
seers on Tuesday appealed to social activist Anna Hazare to leave
the company of Swami Agnivesh as he had made "objectionable
remarks" against a holy Hindu shrine.
"Agnivesh have made objectionable remarks on Baba
Amarnath and its devotees. So he would not be allowed to enter
in the forthcoming Kumbh Mela to be held in Prayag," Akil
Bhartiya Akhara Parishad (ABAP) spokesman Baba Hathygi said.
He also said Swami Agnivesh should be booked under the
charges of sedition.
Agnivesh, one of the key activists associated with
corruption crusader Anna Hazare, was recently heckled by a man
at a public meeting for his remarks on Amarnath shrine.
