small mercies. so shouldn't we be agitating for jayalalitha and manmohan to resign?
clearly the attack on hh the kanchi swamiji is religious oppression of the worst kind. he is one who has been very friendly to shudras and harijans. i have personally interviewed him and observed him. the reason he has been targeted is that he has been preventing the christists from meeting their conversion targets.
it is a red herring that swami jayendra sarasvati is a brahmin. in a state full of 'dravida' zealots like t r baalu who proclaim how much they hate hinduism, only the brahmins have kept hinduism alive. it is bullshit to say that no hindu rioted in the streets because the swami is a brahmin. hindus should have been rioting in the streets, but unfortunately we are too civilized for that.
in fact, if the state attacked mata amritanandamayi, who is of fisherman origin, then too hindus won't riot in the streets. it has nothing to do with caste. it is just that unlike semitics, hindus do not kill for religion. this was remarked upon with great wonder by alberuni many centuries ago.

Subject: Shankaracharya's case moved out of TN
The Kanchi case has been moved out of state! Please note the observations of the SC bench. Did you read that in any major English publication!! These same shamless subverts (*&^%$#@) conducted a media by trial when the seers were implicated!!
Here is a link to kanchi-sathya site for more information.
Please give this publicity in your blog, if you think it is appropriate justice.
