VHP lambasts BR Patil for belittling Hindu religion
Milli Gazette Online
Gulbarga: The VHP has come down heavily on Aland MLA B.R. Patil of Janata Dal (S) for “belittling the Hindu religion” while speaking at a function to celebrate Dr. B. R. Ambedkar's birth anniversary recently. VHP Kalburgi division organising secretary Mallikarjun Advani took Aland MLA to task for unnecessarily criticising the Hindu Dharma instead of speaking on the life and works of Ambedkar who had contributed a lot for the reformation of Hindus.
Advani pointed out that Ambedkar admired Hindu religion as once he had stated that the religion was pure but had been maligned by some people. He also brought to the notice of Patil that Dr.Amebdkar had a marathon discussion with the RSS Sarasanghachalak M.S.Golwalkar before leaving Hinduism to embrace Buddhism. Advani also mentioned the statement of the Dalai Lama recently that both Hinduism and Buddhism were two faces of the same coin.
