Manipal: Attempts to portray ‘Homa and Havan’ rituals as superstitions are still going on today. Hindus should unite by forgetting the caste, creed, and regional differences for countering such narrative and for the well-being of the world, said Puttur Vivekananda Vidyavardhaka Sangha’s president and senior RSS functionary Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat.

He was speaking after inaugurating a religious event held on Sunday as part of Atirudra Mahayaga Sankalpa Diwas and Mrittika Puja at Shivpadi Sri Umamaheshwara Temple.

Prabhakar Baht said Hinduism wants the welfare of the world. Hinduism can never be against secularism. India is the only country that worships mother. Westerners cannot tolerate this. Thus, there is an attempt to portray the Hindu rituals as superstition, he claimed.

Hinduism is not a religion, but a way of life. Hindu society is a monogamous culture and religion that seeks the welfare of all, he opined.

He wished well for the ‘Atirudra Mahayaga’ which is being held as part of organizing the Hindu society.

Sringeri Matha Provincial Dharmadhikari Vageesh Shastri explained the background, glory, benefits, and procedure of Atirudra Mahayaga. MAHE  Pro-Chancellor Dr. HS Ballal, Vice-Chancellor Dr. M.D. Venkatesh conveyed their good wishes. MLA K. Raghupathi Bhat, who is also the chairman of the ‘Atirudra Mahayaga’ Committee, presided over the event.

Nayak, Dr. Krishna Prasad Kudlu of Prasad Ophthalmology, businessmen Muniyal Udaya Kumar Shetty, Parvat Shetty, Balakrishna Bhandari, and Karthik R. Nayak, Arun Kumar of Nirmithi Kendra, Municipal Councilors Vijayalakshmi, and Kalpana Sudhama, President of Manipal Babbuswamy Daivasthana Srinivasa Poojary, Mokesta of the temple administration Dinesh Prabhu, Vishwanath Shastri of Sringeri Matha, Udupi District Coordinator of Sri Shankar Tattva Prasar Abhiyan Vishwanath Shanbhogue were present.
