Pejawar Mutt seer Vishwesha Theertha Swami has said that he favours unity among Veerashaivas and Lingayats and that both should stay together.
“Politicians are attempting to create a divide in Hindu religion. Veerashaivas, Lingayats, Shaivas and Vaishnavas are like brothers. They all accept Shiva and those who accept Shiva are Hindus. Hence they should not go out of Hindu religion,” the seer said here on Friday. He was speaking at an all-religion programme at Kottur Swamy Mutt in Hosapete.
The seer said that he was not interfering in the affairs of any community and his only concern was that “our brothers should not go away from us.”
