Paripoornananda restricted, Kathi Mahesh detained
Swami Paripoornananda, who had announced a Dharmagraha Yatra of Hindus from Shiva Temple in Bodduppal to Yadadri today (July 9), has been placed under house arrest at his Jubilee Hills residence in Hyderabad.
The Yatra, in which thousands were to chant ‘Sri Rama's name as a mark of protest against Kathi Mahesh's recent remarks against the revered Hindu deity, has been prevented from being taken. The police have reportedly done so because they came to know that some unscrupulous elements were planning to create a law and order disturbance by infiltrating the Yatra.
As for Kathi Mahesh, the Hyderabad police have prevented him from entering Telangana ahead of the now-cancelled Yatra. He is now under the detention of the Andhra Pradesh police.
