Udupi, Jan 8: Vishwa Hindu Parishat (VHP) president Dr Togadia on Wednesday January 8 said that the government should not permit evangelist Benny Hinn to enter the state. Alleging that Benny Hinn was coming to the state for conversion, he said it was against the Constitution.

Dr Togadia who spoke to the media after meeting Sri Vishweshatirtha Swamiji for about twenty minutes at Pejawar Math, said that the VHP was opposed to the arrival of Benny Hinn under the democratic setup and urged the government to ban his entry.

Togadia said that as per the inquiry commissions set up by different state and central governments, Muslims were responsible for incidents of violence in Muzaffarnagar, Godhra and other parts of the country.

Pejawar Swamiji who spoke on the occasion said, “Benny Hinn is coming to spread superstition.  While the government on one hand is trying to ban superstition, it is welcoming Benny Hinn. There is no meaning to his arrival.”

During their meeting, Pejawar Swamiji and Togadia discussed various issues related to cow slaughter, setting up of ‘go shala’ in the district and the need to create awareness on the issue. Pejawar Swamiji is also understood to have asked Togadia whether Aam Aadmi Party has adversely impacted BJP, to which Togadia reportedly replied in the negative.

Dr Togadia is in the district to attend a programme. He will later visit Mangalore and address a press meet on Wednesday evening.
