Admitting that there were some “internal issues” within Hinduism, he said that they would be addressed through unity. He said that Hinduism respected those who did not believe in God. A classic example would be giving Charvaka, a non-believer in God, giving the status of ‘muni’ (sage).

He said that a procession would be taken out from Ambedkar Circle to the maidan at 2 p.m. The stage function would start at 4 p.m. and end at 5.30 p.m. Pejawar Mutt seer Vishvesha Tirtha, Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala D. Veerendra Heggade and Sadhwi Balika Saraswati from Madhya Pradesh will address the gathering.

Vijaya Vittalanatha Shetty, president, Swarna Mahotsava Utsava Samiti, alleged that some forces were attempting to destabilise organising the utsava.

Jagadeesh Shenava, district president, VHP, said that private bus owners have agreed to spare 500 buses for free to bring people to the convention. He said that though some attempts to provoke the organisers had been made, the VHP has exhibited tolerance.
