[ZESTCaste] 'Dalits should be Invited to Hindu Faith, Not Vaishnava Sect'

Udupi: 'Dalits should be Invited to Hindu Faith, Not Vaishnava Sect'

Udupi, Nov 17: Dalits should be admitted into the fold of Hinduism,
and not Vaishnava sect, state backward classes commission chairman Dr
C S Dwarakanath said here on Tuesday, Nov 16.

He was speaking at a self-respect rally of Dalits and Shudras in the
Bannanje Narayana Guru auditorium. He said it in response to Shri
Pejavar Swamiji's invitation to Dalits to join the Vaishnava sect. He
stressed on the fact that this sect was only a part of mainstream
Hindu faith and therefore it would be inappropriate to give a call to
Dalits to join Vaishnava sect. Instead, they should be asked to join
the Hindu way of life, he added.

He also expressed an apprehension that the decision of the government
to exempt Shri Krishna Math from the religious endowments department
had an ulterior motive.

Dalit Sangharsh Samiti's state convener R Mohan Raj, Republican Party
of India and Samata Sainika Dal state president M Venkataswamy,
Sarvajana Samaja Vedike state president B Gopal, Lolaksha, K L Ashok
of Komu Sauharda Vedike and others were present on the occasion.
