    An Abomination
    NEWS REPORT


    True, the Mahakumbh is described by Hindus themselves as the very pinnacle of their religious experience ... and we wish them the very best for it. But any attempt to connect it and any Hindu practices to Sikhism - now or ever - is nothing less than an abomination!

    The Rashtriya Sikh Sangat - a mischievous group organized by the right-wing Hindu fundamentalist organization, The Rashtriya Swayyam Sevak Sangh [the very same people who were behind the murder of Mohandas Gandhi and were banned in India for several decades] - organized various camps in Haridwar Mahakumbh from March 21 to April 18, 2010.

    The boarding and lodging arrangements were made at the huge premises of 12 bighas at Nirmal Virakta Kutia near Prem Nagar Ashram Chowk. Around 5000 people in normal days and over 10,000 on the days of Shahi snan were fed at what they labelled a "langar".

    In the medical camp organised under the banner of Bhai Kanhaiyyaji, from 3000 to 4000 patients were treated every day. An exhibition displaying the 'rich sacrificial traditions' of the Sikh Gurus was also organized at this premises. More than five hundred thousand people, including the devotees from Bangladesh, Nepal, America, Canada, France, Italy, Sri Lanka, Japan, Hong Kong, etc. purportedly had food and also visited the exhibition. The "rashtriya sikh sangat" workers from 28 provinces, it is claimed, also visited the camps.

    Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh and many of his cabinet colleagues, former Union Law Minister Dr Subramanian Swamy, National Executive Member of RSS Shri Madhubhai Kulkarni, VHP general secretary (organisation) Shri Dinesh Chandra, VHP vice president Shri Balkrishna Naik, founder of the 'rss', Shri Chiranjiv, 'rss' national president Shri Gurucharan Gill and many others were also present at the inaugural ceremony.

    A 'kavi darbar' was organised at Neeldhara Pandal in which many leading poets including Shri Nirala from Punjab, Shri Sajan, Shri Mohan Mohani, Shri Divana, Dr Dayashankar Vidyalankar, Dr Buddhadev Sharma, etc., recited their poems.

    National president of Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad, Mahant Gyandas Maharaj, was the chief guest at the concluding ceremony. He lauded the activities of the 'rss'. Shrimahant of Nirmal Akhara Shri Gyandev, representative of Sri Sri Ravi Shanakar, Shri Bhanuji, Mahamandaleshwar Shri Hansdevacharya also blessed the devotees.

    OHHHHHHH! There are members of sant samaj that participate in this too. Nirmalas are the last to bathe in the Ganges. All the other yogis form a solemn line and soberly await their arrival. There is a YouTube showing this very event.

    Is that a cigarette the strange-looking Shaivite is reaching for? What a naughty boy!

    I am trying to go offline in a rush and cannot find the video right now. But here is a web site that contains some of the information. The video actually shows the procession. When I find it I will post it. Apologies, but this always happens when I am in a hurry.
