Question: In 2004, Shankaracharya of Kanchi was arrested and charged
with murder. To protest against his arrest, Muslims and Hindus were
united in marching. Some Hindu monks say there is fear of 'trial by
media'. 1) Behind the case of Shakaracharya's arrest, are there any
politicians' conspirances to get their own benefits using police
force, as with the case of Swami Premananda ? 2) And furthermore,
behind this sequence of plots against spiritual persons, is there the
force of the so-called Black Lodge ? 3) Are the targets mainly Hindu
spiritual leaders, because Maitreya is now teaching in Hindu temples
in London ?
Answer by Benjamin Creme: (1) Yes. (2) No. (3) No. The
spiritual leaders in India come from secular, right-wing groups
belive they are creating a 'modern' India no longer being influenced
by 'superstition and religious corruption', which, they belive, has
held India back in the past.
