Meanwhile Sachidananda Saraswati, the successor of late Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati said that conversion is the biggest threat to Hinduism and as long as it will continues inter-religious tension will prevail in state.
Sachidananda apprehended that conversion will continue in full swing in Kandhamal district. Foreign funding agencies backing conversion will take place in a big way since Laxamanandaji’s assassination.
“Swamiji stood like rock against these unlawful conversion and open cow slaughter without any fear,” he told in an interview. “No one can fill up the void created by his death,” he said.
“I know that they might eliminate me but I am not afraid of them, as death comes once in life,” said Sachinanada quoting Laxmanananda.
Sachidananda Saraswati also regretted that there are talks and condemnation of the post murder violence but no central leader had so far condemned the killing of the religious and social leader.
Asked whether he is contemplating to shift his activities to Kandhamal to manage the ashrama, Sachidananda declined to go there at the moment because of security reasons.
