kamat: Seer backs Hindu lawyer of pro-hijab petitioners | India News – Times of India


MANGALURU: Seer Bhaveshanand of Ramakrishna Ashram in Karwar has voiced support for advocate Devadutt Kamat, who is facing an online hate campaign for representing three Muslims girls from Kundapur’s Bhandarkar College in the hijab case in Karnataka HC.
Social media users are accusing Kamat of attempting to legitimise a website which spreads hate against non-Muslims and openly demands violence against non-believers. Kamat had quoted from the website during his arguments in court. Online users also claimed Muslim fundamental forces are on the rise in the coastal region and Kamat is playing a “dangerous game” by supporting the girls, who are allegedly being provoked by these radical forces. Kamat has also been targeted for allegedly comparing hijab to ‘nama’ (vermilion smeared after Sandhya Vandana).
In an open letter, Swami Bhaveshanand reiterated that the debate on dress code of Muslim girls in schools/colleges is “unnecessary”.
“Some elements are trying to brand him as supporting a cause against Hindu religion,” the seer said. “This perception is absolutely uncalled for and baseless.
