Goa minister defends Sanatan, alleges political conspiracy

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 31 August 2013 13:29 IST

Sanatan Saunstha is involved in religious work, not in criminal acts like killing somebody, PWD minister Sudin Dhawalikar has claimed.

Talking to media persons yesterday, Dhawalikar replied to questions surrounding Sanatan Saunstha, which he is very closely associated with as a strong sympathiser.

The Pune police, probing into the murder of Dr Narendra Dabholkar, had recently picked up Sandeep Shinde, a Pune-based sadhak, from Santan Ashram, Saunstha’s headquarters at Ramnathi in Ponda.

He was later released after interrogation.

According to Dhawalikar, the police are acting against Sanatan under political pressure.

He however avoided mentioning any particular political party or a politician in this regard, though he empasised that Goan politicians are involved in this conspiracy against Sanatan.


“Sanatan Saunstha is doing constructive work to protect Hindu religion, like any other Christian or Muslim organisation works”, said Dhawalikar.

He also added that this right is provided to every citizen of the country by the Constitution of India and Sanatan is simply targetted in a destructive manner.

He also alleged that the ruling politicians have been repeatedly harassisng Sanatan after such incidents take place.

In the past, in 2009, Santan ashram was raided and several sadhak were picked up in a Margao bomb blast case.

Malgonda Patil and Yogesh Naik, two Sanatan sadhak, got killed in a freak bomb explosion in the scooter they were riding.

The bombs were travelled to Margao for an explosiion at a Narakasur competition on the eve of Diwali in Margao, where thousands of people including children had gathered at the municipal square.

Rajan Kamat bab if maharashtra police search through accounts of madhavrao dhawlikar trust they will immediately find whom sanatan hired and paid for contract killing of Narendra Dabholkar. Sanatan works on Dhavlikars black money.

Sudin is rewarded today for defending Saitanan saunstha..

Saitanan saunstha is believed to have blessings of some powerful spiritual leaders from Maharashtra who have control over politicians. They also have a broad alliance with the likes of Ram Sene, a faction varkari Sanghatan, Asaram Baou, Rmadev baba and several minor religious and spiritual agents who have set up their shops in India.

It is impossible for their members to carry out such an act without any trace of proof. These guys are not sophisticated enough. Remember how the made a mess of Margao blasts?

Sudin is right. None of the sadhaks of Saitanan is involved. This looks like the job of professional sharp shooters hired for the purpose. Saitanan has many rich and wealthy supporters and they ALL must be investigated immediately because only they are capable of hiring mercenaries by spending huge amounts for such a job.

This is all untrue. Sanatan never blast bomb in margao. sanatan never blast bomb in pune. sanatan never blast bomb in thane. sanatan never blast bomb in panvel. sanatan did not murder dabholkar. sanatan does not want to overthrow govt of india by hindu revolution. sanatan does not want to create a hindu nation. sudin dhavlikar is not corrupt. sudin does not take bribes from PWD contractors. sudin was never known as mr. 10 % for the cut he never used to take from PWD contractors. likewise sudins brother is also not corrupt. sanatan is not a terrorist organisation. sanatan is not banned by any european country. sun does not rise from east. earth is not round and truth is never true. freedom is slavery and war is peace.
