Congress came out against Dhirendra Shastri, said – there is no place in Maharashtra for those who spread superstition

Mumbai: Pandit Dhirendra Shastri of Bageshwar Dham, who has been in both controversy and headlines for a few days, has currently come under attack from Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole. Nana Patole has written a letter to the Chief Minister of the state, Eknath Shinde. Patole has written a letter to Eknath Shinde demanding not to approve Dhirendra Shastri’s program to be held at Mira Road adjacent to Mumbai. Dhirendra Shastri’s program is proposed on March 18 and 19 at Mira Road. Now, in protest against this, Nana Patole has written a letter to the Chief Minister. After Nana Patole’s letter, it will be interesting to see whether CM Eknath Shinde approves the program of Baba Pandit Dhirendra Shastri of Bageshwar Dham.

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.
