Sanatan Sanstha now justifies Thane, Margao blasts

  • tags: no_tag

    • Sanatan Sanstha, the right-wing Hindu group which has denied its involvement in the Thane and Margao blasts, has suddenly come out with a justification of the incidents.

      "I always wondered why Sanatan's seekers were linked to these two blasts because we do not give such preachings. But upon thinking, I realised the reasoning and analysed it," Sanatan founder Jayant Balaji Athavale said.

      "They could not bear the desecration of places of Hindu worship," he wrote in the Sanstha mouthpiece 'Sanatan Prabhat' on Sunday.
    • "Sanatan teaches how to sacrifice the body, soul and wealth. It's only after these sacrifices that they mature in 'sadhana'," he said in the column.

      Athavale, however, said the Sanstha does not teach anyone what kind of sacrifice one should make as it should be with one's "own thinking".
