Mangaluru, Jan 7: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal staged a protest at DC office here in the city on Monday, January 7, against Kannada scholar Prof Bhagwan for derogatory remarks on Sri Ram in his book 'Rama Mandira Yeke Beda' and demanded his arrest.

Addressing the protestors, Bajrang Dal leader, Sharan Pumpwell said, "Lord Ram is the leader of this world and we believe in him. Prof Bhagwan has gone mad to make such derogatory remarks in his book. Government has no courage to arrest Prof Bhagwan. Instead, they are protecting him by giving more security,"



"The former chief minister Siddaramaiah and present CM Kumaraswamy are the same. When Siddaramaiah was the chief minister, Prof Bhagwan had made derogatory remarks against Lord Ram but he was not arrested. We demand the withdrawal of police security given to Prof Bhagwan and urge to arrest him immediately," said Sharan Pumpwell.

Regarding the matter of missing of fishermen of Malpe, Sharan Pumpwell said, "It has been 22 days since the seven fishermen are missing in the deep sea. The government has failed to trace them. If the fishermen were from the Muslim community, then chief minister Kumaraswamy, home minister M B Patil, district in-charge minister U T Khader would have been in Malpe by now and got them traced. They did not even pay visit to the fishermen's residences till now,"

"When Suvarna news channel anchor Ajith made a statement about Mohammed Paigambar, a complaint was registered at Pandeshwar police station despite the anchor speaking at Bengaluru studio. But when we went to register complaint against Prof Bhagwan, several reasons were given not to register FIR," added Pumpwell.

Sharan further said, "An eight-year-old girl was sexually harassed by a mobile shop owner named Salim at Mani. Even after one week of the incident, the arrest was not made because he belonged to Muslim community. So we demand new SP Lakshmi Prasad to arrest Salim within a week or else we will protest against it at Mani,"

VHP district secretary Shivanand Mendon said, "We worship Lord Ram and this is our faith. We have been taught by our parents about Lord Ram and Sita. Prof Bhagwan had the guts to make derogatory remarks in his book about Lord Ram and he has ego of that he is a writer. He has the courage to speak and but does not have the courage to face the public. So he has taken police security." 

"Prof Bhagwan has written the book titled 'Rama Mandira Yeke Beda' in which he has written that Lord Ram consumed meat, liquor and there are many such derogatory remarks about Ram. Prof Bhagwan is an anti-Hindu. Instead of arresting him, the government is safeguarding him by providing security. We demand Prof Bhagwan's arrest and ban on the publisher. We also demand Sapna Book store to stop selling the book of Bhagwan that has derogatory remarks about Sri Ram," added Shivanand Mendon.

Regional convener Vidya Mallya said, "People like Prof Bhagwan keep on saying that there is intolerance. But we Hindus will stand together and will show what intolerance is and Prof Bhagwan can survive nowhere in the world. Prof Bhagwan needs mental treatment and needs to be admitted into NIMHANS. The expenditure which is being spent for his security has to be spent for his treatment at NIMHANS."

    Why Bhagwan is against Bhagwan Ram? Is there any truth? Finally it is readers to decide.
    The bottom line of whole controversy is that black day Dec 6, 1992 where mosque was demolished un constitutionally causing scores of innocents lost their lives and the responsibles are already facing trials for decades but sadly still enjoying all sorts of luxurious life.
    Let the SC decide whom to belong the site.

    Prof Bhagwan has done nothing wrong. On December 6th, 1992 there were many people killed all over India by all fanatics in India due to demolition of Babri Masjid by few criminal Indian who tried to law into their own hands. My wife's father disappeared from that day in Mumbai/Bombay till date neither he or his body is recovered from anywhere. Where has he disappeared. Who is responsible for his death. who has killed. where was his body dumped. What were the Bombay Police doing then. where is his body gone. Who has claimed any compensation showing my wife father dead body as their relatives or it was secretly destroyed so that his death is not known to anyone or anybody.

    God is everywhere in world. He cannot be protected or he does not require any unwanted place where people are killed uselessly . God owns the entire universe . In their own religion women are not allowed to go to temples in Sabarimala . when the Hindus fanatics have no respect to women who give birth to the Hindu men /boys/children why they want temples. First let them learn to respect all women & their daughters so that they also get equal rights to worship their God in Sabarimala in Kerala. If Hindus want Rama Temple Let them buy or Purchase some other land & then they build the temple whichever they want without creating any difficulties to any Indian citizens. Prof Bhagwan is prefectly right in his book what he has written & I also endorse it . Has Violence or killing for a temple is not required by any Peace loving Indians.

    Dear all,

    Kindly do not criticize anybody's deity and disturb peace in the environment.
    Understand peoples sentiments, whether majority or minority, give respect ,take respect and live in peace.
    To developing countries like ours, there are so many real and burning issues to be addressed and focused upon, instead of this type of disturbing issues left to be handled.

    Lord Ram will not become small by someone's opinion or thinking. He is Lord Ram all the time, whether someone likes it or not. So use the energy to develop India and our generation. Are we the people more powerful then HIM to Protect Lord Ram ? Let us become RAM who humbled himself to leave Palace and went for 14 years of Vanvas.

    Prof Bhagwan has done nothing wrong compared to what Modi and BJP has done to Lord Ram. Where is the Ram Mandir built in Ayodhya since 25 years????.. It's a big dishonour to Lord Ram. Is it not a joke and humiliating to Hindus. Hindus shed their blood for this cause on the promise that Ram Mandir will be built on the very site where Babri masjid was demolished but Modi and BJP are showing no feelings towards building Ram Mandir since 25 years which is a very very long time!?!?!?!?!?!.....This is definitely an endorsement of Prof Bhagwan's views by BJP.

    Mr Swamy, The matter is in the Court and Mr Modi has allready clarified that he is willing to wait for the Courts verdict. Not just Bhagawaan Salman Rushdie was also not wrong but his book was banned by your dear party. can we know why? where is the freedom of speech for Salman and taslima.

    Was that your promise when you demolished Babri masjid to wait for SC verdict to build Ram Mandir???. Surprising BJP is waiting since 25 years for SC verdict on Ram Mandir case. You are master manipulator so why don't you lie in your report and submit it to SC to win the case now atleast. For Ram sake.
    PS: Are you a consistent ardent follower of SC verdict?????....

    Mr Sheik. Salman Rushdie, Wafa sultha , Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Ali Sina etc also thought the fellow people are under delusion. Difference betwee them and Mr Bhagwaan is that while Bhagwaan is in India and keeps on saying some anti Hindu statements these people have left their native countries fearing their life.

    Understand the basic thing that Bhagavan is a Hindu and critisizing Hinduism/Ram; not the christian or Muslims. Where is some Hindus (you can see in social/ media) criticizing other religion. Do not be selective hypocrite to make Jumla statment
