On a side note

Over the weekend I came across this interesting article written by one IIM Bangalore professor regarding ongoing situation where Tamil Nadu state government has arrested a seer on charges of murder.

I failed to understand the basic point that the writer wants to convey. Actually I have issues with the very first statement of the article i.e. "The arrest of the Kanchi Shankaracharya, Jayendra Saraswati, has shocked India."

The writer simply ignores the seriousness of the charges and the fact that one person has been killed.

I don't understand why do we need to give special treatment to this particular case when this is just a case of murder. If he did not commit it, he will be acquited.

This same writer would never write anything when hundreds of innocent individuals are harrassed by the police.

    Your blog was thought provoking.

    for e.g. I too am not sure if the Kanchi Acharya is to blame in the scandal he has been pushed into.

    My thoughts on the issue at ..

    What is happening to the Kanchi Acharya ?
