What's wrong if married couples use condoms in Ashram, asks Sanatan

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 01 October 2015 23:45 IST

What is wrong if married couples in Sanatan Ashram use family planning tools, asks Sanatan Sanstha, while dismissing the allegation that condoms are used in the Ashram for some other purpose.

At a press conference addressed today, Sanatan trustee Nitin Sahakari said it is surprising to take objection to use family planning tools (condoms) when government spends crores of rupees to encourage such material.

Saurabh Lotlikar, president of Ramnath Yuvak Sangh, had made an allegation yesterday that Sanatan Sanstha collects condoms in thousands, to be used at the Ashram.

A press note released in this regard stated that Sanatan Sanstha advises performing sadhana by maintaining the family life.

Sahakari also claimed that there is not a single incident of law and order problem created so far due to the existence of Sanatan Ashram.

Sanatan Sanstha has come in focus once again with Maharashtra police arresting one of its members – Sameer Gaikwad – as a suspect in Com Govind Pansare murder case.

The Maharashtra police have also stated that he is in contact with some members of Sanatan, who are absconding since the Margao bomb blast case took place in 2009.

The Sanatan press note states:

“Entire work of Sanatan Sanstha is carried out within the ambit of the Constitution. Sanatan Sanstha undertakes the wok of propagation of Dharma through the medium of weekly satsang, educational classes on Sanskaras, a wealth of Holy texts, etc. For maintaining the communal harmony and unity of Hindu organisations, Sanatan Sanstha works complimentary to Hindu Janjagruti Samiti. As a social obligation, Sanatan Sanstha undertakes social upliftment and creates awakening about the Nation.”

The Sanatan leaders present at the press conference thus felt that demanding closure of Sanatan Ashram and banning Sanatan Sanstha is unconstitutional and undemocratic.

On the contrary, they felt that the state government should protect the constitutional rights of Sanatan Sanstha.

They also asked why Lotlikar has not raised his voice against the immoral acts like casinos, massage parlours and rave parties in Goa.  

Sanatan has done it, they claimed, by forcing the administration to remove the obscene hoardings put up by many casinos in Goa and preventing clubs like 'Playboy'.

Sanatan has thus alleged a sinister conspiracy being hatched to defame a culture-loving institution by using Saurabh Lotlikar as a person in the front.

Its absolutely true that Sanatan Sanstha along with other like minded organisation created awareness and stopped vulgar hoardings and Playboy Club.

That time this Saurabh Lotlikar was never in picture.

He calls himself a social worker but never heard him doing any social work.

Sanatan Ashram has all legal permissions to carry their work and till date we never saw any problem because of them in this area.
