Shankaracharya should stay away from temple movement: Joshi
Varanasi, Nov 20 (UNI) Former Union Minister Murli Manohar Joshi today asked Shankaracharya of Jyotish and Shardapith Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati to stay away from the Ram temple movement, as the seer has always tried to ''disintegrate the movement dear to all the Hindus.'' ''The seer has always tried to create divisions in the movement and it is better that he leaves the movement in the hands of the Ram Janmabhoomi Trust and Ramanand sect of the Hindus.'' Dr Joshi said in reaction to a query pertaining to the Shankaracharya's plans of performing a 'parikrama' of the Ram Janmabhoomi on November 30.
The BJP leader also urged the Hindu seer to leave to the court, the question of decision over the disputed land in Ayodhya. He also made it clear that both RSS chief K C Sudarshan and BJP leader L K Advani will not participate in the 'parikrama'.
