What’s the matter regarding Ramkrishna mission?
Prime Minister Modi paid a visit to headquarters of Ramkrishna Mission in Belur Math. The founder of the Ramkrishna was Swami Vivekananda. The comments that Modi made regarding CAA didn’t go well with people of West Bengal.
A section of the members of the mission condemned his visit. Many of them have questioned his purpose of visiting the Math.
Mr Modi reached Belur Math on Saturday. He went there to pay homage to Sri Ramkrishna. Ramkrishna was a mystic saint of 19th century.
A member of mission who was given Deeksha by late Swami Atmasthananda claimed that Modiji’s comments were hurtful. He stated that it was disheartening to hear such statements disseminating from the platform of RKM.
“Let me make two things clear. One, RKM constitutes of an elaborate process of consecration. Mr. Modi has not been consecrated and two, he is not allowed to make such statements. As per my observation, RKM has been on political radar for quiet a few time. This happened due to induction and promotion of leaders into members of RSS.” said a mission member.
A section of the disciples sent a letter to RKM officials to request them to cancel the visit of Narendra Modi.
The letter was written to RKM officials to cancel PM’s visit.
“As a student of Ramkrishna Mission, I request you to cancel the visit of Narendra Modi,” stated the letter. Accusing Modi of violence, it noted that the place of Ramakrishna should not extend an invitation to a person who creates a problem for people.
Swami Sivananda, the general secretary of RKM said,” The organization will not comment on Prime Minister’s speech on CAA. We are an apolitical body. We have come here after leaving our homes to answer eternal calls. we don’t respond to ephemeral calls.” He described RKM as “inclusive” Organization.
