CAA, NRC Issues: Indian Monks of Ramakrishna Mission disowned Modi’s narrative

New Delhi, India: After Kashmiris, Dalits, Sikhs, Muslims, Shiv Sena and students (irrespective of their religious divide) have stood against Modi Sarkar, now Indian Monks have expressed their displeasure over how Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi is ruining India over religious divide.

In a statement issued on Monday, Ramakrishna Mission expressed displeasure over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “political speech” from the “apolitical” platform of Belur Math – the headquarters of Ramakrishna Mission.

PM Modi addressed people in Belur Math on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) on Sunday.

According to Daily The Hindu, a senior member of of RKM Gautam Roy said that RKM is “deeply hurt to see controversial political messages being disseminated from the platform of RKM, which is an apolitical body.

“Let me make two things clear. One, RKM has an elaborate and official process of consecration. Mr. Modi has not been officially consecrated and two, he is not allowed to come and make statements which are political in nature,” said Gautam Roy.

It may be mentioned that PM Modi on Sunday, during his address from Belur Math said that the new law would not take away anybody’s citizenship and a section of the youth was being misguided about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Meanwhile Swami Suvirananda, the Ramakrishna Math and Mission General Secretary, said:

“We have come here after leaving our homes to answer eternal calls. We are an inclusive organization, which has monks from Hindu, Islam and Christian communities”.

It is pertinent to mention that Ramakrishna Mission (RKM) is a Hindu religious and spiritual organisation. The mission is named after and inspired by the Indian saint Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and founded by Ramakrishna’s chief disciple Swami Vivekananda on 1 May 1897.

The organisation mainly propagates the Hindu philosophy of Vedanta–Advaita Vedanta and four yogic ideals–jnana, bhakti, karma, and Raja Yoga.
