Amarnath Shrine Board ''anti-Hindu'': Sarvagya Peeth

Written by: Staff

Lucknow, July 6 (UNI) Sharda Sarvagya Peeth of Kashmir today criticised the Amarnath Shrine Board for indulging in ''anti-Hindu activities'' by making artificial 'Shivlinga' and advancing the Yatra from its original schedule.

Peeth head Swami Amritanand Deo Tirth Maharaj claimed the Board was working at the behest of ''anti-Hindu forces''.

He also alleged that the ''People's Democratic Party (PDP) in connivance with Pakistan'' was aiming to disrupt future yatras.

''The Shrine Board is playing with the religious sentiments of Hindus with the artificial 'Shivlinga','' he told reporters here.

Blaming the advancement of the Yatra and the hot weather for non-formation of a natural 'Shivlinga' at the Amarnath cave, the Maharaj did not rule out a ''Congress hand'' in the entire eposide.

Giving a clean chit to Jammu and Kashmir Governor S K Sinha, he demanded the Board activities be probed for the reason behind advancement of Yatra by 30 days.

Earlier, the yatra used to be held in July-August, but this time it was held in June-July.

Playing the ''unholy'' activities of the Shrine Board, the Sarvagya Peth chief said, ''They want Hindus to cancel their Amarnath trip in future. Hence, they are taking such steps so that people loses religious faith in the yatra.'' UNI MB VS RR GC1610
