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.
