Dabholkar was being paid to bring down the Hindu religion from US: Ramdas Kadam
Home Minister R R Patil clarified on Kadam’s remarks on Dabholkar and claimed them flase
Nagpur: In a much bizarre statement, Shivsena leader Ramdas Kadam accused slain anti superstition crusader Narendra Dabholkar as he was getting paid from the US based people of different religions, to bring the Hindu religion down, here.
In a stern reply to Kadam Home Minister R R Patil clarified that Dabholkar was awarded as the ‘Best social worker in the past 10 years’ with award money of Rs. 10 lakh. Patil also said that the award was given by Marathi people from the United States.
He further said that Dabholkar was such a noble person, that he donated the award for the social cause of Anti Superstition Eradication Committee. Patil stated that thus Kadam’s claims are totally false and he dissected all the statements made by Kadam in the house regarding Dabholkar. The anti superstition bill was tabled in the legislative council house after it was sanctioned by the legislative assembly on Monday.
Patil further said that Dr. Dabholkar lived a life for a cause. He said that he was clarifying only because false statements about Dabholkar should not come in the record.
US based Maharashtra foundation had awarded Dr. Narendra Dabholkar with ‘Best social worker’ award worth Rs 10 lakh. The foundation had earlier awarded Kumar Ketkar, Arun Tikekar, Raosaheb Kasbe and many other dignitaries from various fields.
