Mysuru: Pejawar Seer Vishwesha Thirtha Swamiji is facing the wrath of the progressive thinkers and activists for his controversial statement on amendment to the Indian Constitution.

On November 26, several progressive thinkers and scholars protested against the seer in front of the main stage of the 83rd Kannada Sahitya Sammelana at Maharaja College grounds.

It may be recalled that the Pejawar seer during his speech at Dharma Sansad in Udupi, had demanded that the government amended the Constitution to do away with special provisions for minorities to facilitate equality in the society and to protect the cows.

Enraged with his statement, the protesters raised slogans against him and condemned his remarks.

Dr. Meenakshi Bali said, “Pejawar seer’s statement is against the principles of democracy. He (seer) does not believe in pluralistic society. He is misleading the people by spreading lies. The seer is trying to reestablish the Chaturvarna (Varna system). It is unfortunate that the Dharma Sansad, chaired by Pejawar seer, passes a resolution on the dead cattle, but they do not have time to discuss the assassination of rationalist Gauri Lankesh.”
