Udupi: The Pejawar Swamiji’s Blood Donating Team, Udupi staged a protest on November 24 at the Clock Tower, against the defamatory post on Shree Vishwashatheertha Swamiji of Pejawar Math by a person claiming to be Abdul Salam.
Arif president of the Team condemned the incident and said that Udupi district has a good name for communal diversity. People of all religions are living together without any problems but some antisocial elements are trying to break the Unity of the people of Udupi. Pejwara Swamiji is not only the religious leader for Hindus but he is also a leader for all religions. He has helped the Muslim community during the time of Tsunami in Tamilandu. He also demanded the concerned Police Authorities to take action against the culprit.
Nabil, Nazeer, Akthar and others were present.
A Facebook page created by a person claiming to be Abdul Salam published a defamatory post on November 23. After the defamatory post was published the Paryaya Swagatha Samiti approached the Superintendent of Police Annamalai and complained about the threat on Facebook.
The post appeared after Pejawar Swamiji’s statement during VHP leader Ashok Singhal’s tribute programme, which was held on Sunday at Udupi, that constructing Ram Mandir in Ayodhya would be a real tribute to the late VHP leader Ashok Singhal.
