What is in Patole’s letter?
Nana Patole has written in his letter that Maharashtra is a progressive state and there is no place for those who spread superstitions. He wrote, ‘The storyteller Dhirendra Shastri has insulted the Warkari community by insulting Jagatguru Sant Tukaram Maharaj. He has hurt the sentiments of lakhs of people of Warkari community with his controversial statement. Allowing the program of a person who insulted Saint Tukaram would mean promoting superstition.
Therefore, no program of Dhirendra Shastri should be approved. In fact, Shastri had once said that the wife of Saint Tukaram used to beat him everyday. There was a lot of uproar on his statement. However, later Dhirendra Shastri retracted his statement and apologized.
