Bengaluru, Jan 13: RSS leader Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat on Monday held a protest march at Ramnagar district’s Kapalabetta under the aegis of Hindu Jagran Vedike’s ‘Kanakapura Chalo’ campaign against the construction of the world’s largest Jesus statue there.
Hundreds of protesters of the Vedike staged a protest march in the city starting from the Kanakapura Ayyappaswamy temple. “We are not here to disturb the peace. We have met each other at the wedding of Sriramulu’s daughter. So you know who I am, DK Shivakumar. How long will you continue with these lies? Is the intention behind the statue of Jesus to solidify your vote bank? Build the statue in America or England, we will not allow it here,” said the RSS leader as the keynote speaker at the rally. “We are ready for any sacrifice. We will always oppose all moves to stone our culture.
You have taken up the task of breaking down Hindu society. Build a statue of Buddha and Pejawara Swamiji on Kapalabetta,” Bhat further added. Prior to this rally, former minister and Congress leader DK Sivakumar had in a video message asked the residents of Kanakapura not to be provoked by any act of the RSS and BJP. (UNI)
