Mangaluru, Jan 04, 2016: Speaking at a meeting convened to discuss programmes for Mangala Goyatra, scheduled to be held on January 22, Paryaya Pejawar Mutt seer Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swami said delay in construction of Ram Mandir is embarrassing to Hindu community.
He said the country is unable to construct a temple for Lord Rama though Hindus are majority. It is disgusting that people had to resort to a prolonged struggle to construct the temple. Despite the fight, there has been no fruitful result, he said. The seer said that conserving cattle treasure is the prime duty of all Hindus in terms of humanity and spiritualism.
He lamented that opposition for conserving the cattle treasure is increasing. The cattle is the source of livelihood to many and offers a plenty of benefits to mankind. Many protests and fights have been staged to conserve the livestock. However, the voice of majority has failed to suppress the violence meted out to the animals, he said. He lauded the efforts of Ramachandrapura Mutt for organising Mangala Goyatra.
RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat said there has been continuous attack on the culture and tradition of Hinduism. Cattle wealth is the nation’s treasure.The education system is moving away from teaching morality today. The cattle are killed to hurt the religious sentiments of the Hindus and the government has been supporting the cow slaughtering, he said. The construction of Ram Mandir will be taken up at any cost. It is the symbol of pride and dignity of the Hindus, he added.
