‘Conspiracy to unseat seer’

Bengaluru, Nov 22, 2016, DHNS
Ishwar Bhat has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the high court seeking directions to Raghaveshwara Bharathi to step down as the seer of Ramachandrapura Mutt.

Sri Akhila Havyaka Mahasabha director Mahabaleshwar Bhat has accused the Chief Justice of Karnataka High Court S K Mukherjee and Edurkula Ishwar Bhat (petitioner in a PIL) of hatching a conspiracy against Ramachandrapura Mutt seer, Raghaveshwara Bharathi.

Ishwar Bhat has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the high court seeking directions to Raghaveshwara Bharathi to step down as the seer of Ramachandrapura Mutt.

Mahabaleshwar Bhat, in an affidavit filed before the high court on November 19, 2016, has said that Ishwar Bhat and his associates were using the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to pressure Justice Mukherjee to get a favourable judgement.

C M Krishnashastri, the Akhila Bharatha Prashikshana Pramukh of Samskrita Bharathi, a wing of the RSS, introduced Ishwar Bhat and his associates to Dwaraka Shankaracharya Peetha seer Swarupananda Swami. The Swami heard Ishwar Bhat and his associates’ complaints against Raghaveshwara Bharathi and pressured Justice Mukherjee to act against the Ramachandrapura Mutt Seer.

“Justice Mukherjee is a disciple of Swarupananda Swami. Hence, he will not do justice to the petitioner” Mahabaleshwar Bhat explained, saying that he was willing to face contempt of court if his charges against Ishwar Bhat and Justice Mukherjee were untrue. Swarupananda Swami had recently visited Bengaluru and stayed at the house of Congress MLA Dr K Sudhakar. C M Krishnashastri led a team of “like-minded” people to Swarupananda Swami.

Efforts are being made to pressure Justice Mukherjee for a verdict against Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swami, he said.

Meanwhile, the division bench headed by Justice Mukherjee adjourned the hearing on the PIL following a request by the pontiff’s advocate.
