Protests against arrest of Sri Jayendra Swami continues
Sri Jayendra SaraswtiVisakhapatnam, November 13, 2004

The arrest of the Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt chief, Sri Jayendra Saraswti evoked strong protests in the city. Several Hindu organizations took out a huge rally on Saturday demanding immediate withdrawal of the case and immediate release of Sri Jayendra Saraswti.

The senior advocate Kandala Srinivasarao addressing the protesters said that the arrest of Sri Jayendra Saraswti is nothing but an attack on Hinduism. Many Peethadhipathis charged that the State Government is played a conspiracy in the arrest. The former MLA, K.Haribabu, the BJP National Council Member, PV Chalapati Rao, the city committee president, Bandaru Rangamohan and Vedic scholar, Viswanatham and others spoke.

In a memorandum to the Tamilnadu Governor, Hindu Ikya Vedika alleged that due to political reasons, Jayendra Saraswati's and the Kanchi Mutt's image was being tarnished. The Visakha Zilla Brahmana Seva Sanghamula Samakhya on Saturday convened an emergency meeting and condemned the arrest of the seventy year old saint while he was performing a ritual for universal well being.

The Andhra Pradesh Archaka Samakhya on Saturday called for suspension of ‘Arjita sevas' in temples throughout the State to protest against the arrest and however exempted the ‘nitya, doopa and deepa naivedyalu' from the protest.

The Telangana Temples Religious Employees' Union also condemned the arrest and described it as shameful act on the part of the State Government.
