Speaking to the media persons Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji of Pejawar Math said, “I can’t disclose the details of the meeting. But I asked Amit Shah that there will be discrimination between the minority and Majority religions. The governments are providing all facilities to the people of the minority community which is wrong. In a secular country, governments should treat the people of all faiths and religions equally. If the government gives common facilities to people of all the faiths and religions equally it is good for all. Today’s meeting was held on the request of Amit Shah, his party members asked me to organise a meeting of all Swamijis during his visit and we agreed to his request. If Rahul Gandhi asks us to hold such a meeting we are ready for that also. We have good relations with all party leaders”.
