Udupi, Nov 24, 2017: A Suttur Math seer today stressed the need for deliberating on containing "pseudo religious" groups engaging in "lumpen" activities in the name of Hinduism.

The seer spoke in the presence of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, VHP international general secretary Dr Praveen Togadia and a host of eminent religious leaders.
"The most dangerous threat is from some pseudo religious groups, who in the name of Hinduism, indulge in lumpen activities and cause irreparable damage to the religion, such as cow vigilantes, moral policing, heralding pseudo-sanyasis.. shall not be tolerated," the seer said.
He emphasised that the Sansad should make efforts towards achieving the goal of zero tolerance towards corruption in all its forms.
He also highlighted the need for improving the status of women and their safety. PTI GMS RA BN MVV
