Udupi, July 3,2017 : Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji of Pejawar Mutt has said that the protests held  opposing the Iftar Koota organised at Sri Krishna Mutt were the heights of intolerance.

Speaking to reporters here, the seer said  it was absolutely wrong to stage protests  at  this juncture when the society needs harmony between different  religions. "Why are they protesting ? What has happened to Hinduism ?Why should the Mutt be cleansed ? These protests have not  disturbed me.  I am carrying out my daily activities as usual," the seer said.

"I have not insulted   Hindu  dharma. Those who raise a clamour have no knowledge about scriptures. Will fight whenever injustice is done to Hinduism  and will also maintain cordial relationships with other religions, the seer asserted.

The Pejawar seer said he would not react to Mutalik’s remarks."I had organised the Iftar Koota with a good intention in mind," he said.

Asked if he would organise  Iftar Koota even next year, the seer said  " I will not be the Paryaya seer next year. No decision can be taken in this regard as of now. Let us see," he said.

If the muslims had opposed i agree but being a Hindu if we do it, its really a thing we have to be ashamed of us to be called as HINDUS.

The Hindu Jagarana and the Ramasene are making themselves low by rising the Iftar issue. This shows they do want harmony
