Udupi, Jun 27: A day after Sri Rama Sene leader Pramod Muthalik visited the city and expressed objection to the recent Iftar Souharda Koota organized at Sri Krishna Math led by Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji, the Youth Congress on Tuesday June 27 hit out at Muthalik alleging that he was trying to spoil peace and communal harmony in Udupi.

Addressing a press meet here, distrist Youth Congress president Vishwas Amin said, "When people of all religions and communities are living in harmony in Udupi, Sri Rama Sene leader Pramod Muthalik is trying to disrupt peace. He is doing this for propaganda.

"On July 2, the Sri Rama Sene will hold a protest against Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji's gesture to host Iftar get-together for Muslims in Sri Krishna Math premises. Youth Congress strongly condemns this. We will not allow the protest to take place, and if need be, will hold a counter protest on the same day with police permission. And if they try to gherao the Sri Krishna Math, we will stand with Sri Vishweshateertha Swamiji and extend support," he said.

"Udupi has set an example for peace and communal harmony with people from different communities co-existing here for centuries. Though the neighbouring district of Dakshina Kannada has witnessed communal violence time and again, it has not affected Udupi. The reason for this is Udupi's peace-loving population. But people like Pramod Muthalik are trying to disrupt peace and spark communal unrest here by blowing small issues out of proportion.

"Pejawar Swamiji who is a beacon for the entire country when it comes to fostering communal harmony, is a strong protector of Hindu religion. At the same time he has affection and respect towards other religion too. He has set an example by visiting Dalit colonies.

"The Muslim community has contributed a lot to Sri Krishna Math. We strongly condemn Muthalik for terming Muslims as cow slaughterers and thieves. Every person has right to choice of food. Muthalik should understand that no one has given him the right to decide what others should eat," Amin said.

Vignesh Kini said, "Pejawar Swamiji has always supported secularism. The Muslim community also respects him and has invited him to mosques and religious programmes. Sri Rama Sene should not be biased with one religion, and instead should respect all religions equally.

Moving on to other matters, Kini said that on July 9, a huge district-level party convention will be organized by the district Youth Congress. Rajya Sabha member Oscar Fernandes and other state-level dignitaries are expected to be take part in the convention.

Abdul Azeez, secretary, state Youth Congress, Santhosh, Kaup block Youth Congress and Dheeraj were present.

    Pramod Muthalik and his likes is to Hinduism what Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi/Osama Bin Laden and their likes are to Islam. They spread terror and violence in the name of religion. To rule the population with the laws of one religion and brand everyone else as infidels. We have branded one section of these hatemongers as terrorists, and so we should do the same with the other. Wish we lived in a utopian world where religion did not exist. The only way to combat this is to teach our children and grandchildren the importance of communal harmony. If there is love and peace in the family, then the kids wont go out looking for trouble.

    The word "Peace" has lost its meaning especially because of the people like Muthalik who spread hatred in the name of religion. Everyone loves to have peace but the inner inner meaning of it understood by only those who actually experienced it,

    "Religion is meant to teach us true spiritual human character. It is meant for self-transformation. It is meant to transform anxiety into peace, arrogance into humility, envy into compassion, to awaken the pure soul in man and his love for the Source, which is God". (By Radhanath Swami)

    Heard like Iftar had only vegetarian food served... So did they like it.
    Or does it mean Muslim can go alone with vegetarian food too?

    File a complaint and let police do the job.
    If you forcefully stop the protest, it will lead to clashes, Mutalik will get publicity unnecessarily.
    let him bark and go.

    Hahaha... trying to take political mileage out of this.

    I wound have appreciated Udupi Youth Congress, had they openly opposed the attempt to takeover Udupi Sri Krishna Mutt under Mujarayi Dept by Present Siddu's Govt. You guys were hiding in rat holes at that point of time !!!

    Even without you guys, people of Udupi are capable to take care of Udupi Krishna Mutt. They will kick this idiot Muthalik out of Udupi borders.

    Muthalik and few of his men wants to inject disharmony and moral policing in Udupi too! It is time, people of Udupi to ignore, discourage and do not allow him to step feet in Udupi! I wonder why Ragupathi is giving him respect?? Has he gone down morally to share seat with such a guy???? he too needs some publicity like Muthlik!

    Why can't we all try taking an about turn by opting for good deeds and only good deeds. Surely good produces better and best. There is so much good in the world and because of that we are able to withstand the enormous evil till date. But our satanic attitude could destroy every thing within no time unless we each one put a full stop to all our evil tendencies.
    There are praise worthy beliefs in every religion and let us practice and propagate them to one another and all over the world. The difference exists among us that should be male and female and all of us should be united with the bond of love because the God we all worship is one and the same THE UNIVERSAL LOVE. Thank you and God bless each and every one of us.
