Jain monk and religious leader from Jaipur, Tarun Sagar who was earlier in the news when he asked people to spend a night in the cemetery, during a press conference today started a controversy with his talk on the presence of traitors within India. He said India has more “traitors within than the number of terrorists in Pakistan.” Without naming any person he added, “Those who live and eat in the country, raise pro-Pakistan slogans.” While talking about the people living in the country, he said, “People living in the country shout, revere Pakistan, aren’t they traitors? India has more traitors within than the number of terrorists in Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying by PTI.

Tarun Sagar while hitting out discrepancies that prevail in the country said, “terrorists never attack from the front like a tiger, instead they attack like a wolf (from behind).” He added, “India is not a poor country, actually there is inequality.”

Earlier in the month on his 50th birthday, the Jain monk urged people to spend a day in a cemetery. He said, “People spend their birthdays in hotels, at picnic spots, many times in a temple. But I feel in the pulsating life that they are living, it is difficult to comprehend its true meaning amid all the noise,” according to a Times of India report. At least 2,500 people were to visit a cemetery to mark the occasion of his birthday, where he was to conduct a lecture on the meaning of life.

    मुनि तरुण सागर जी ने सत्य बात कही है। भारत का खाना और पाकिस्तान की जय बोलना क्या उचित है। यह सब देश के जयचन्द है जिनके कारण हम मुग़लो और अंग्रेजो के 1000 वर्षों तक गुलाम रहे। चीन में इस तरह के लोगो की सजा फांसी है। अपने देश मे उन सब मजे से रह रहे हैं। में मुनि जी की बातों का समर्थन करता हूं।

    Jain Muni has made two valid points.Both are sensible and can not be disputed.First:visit to cemetery.We all knowwe will finally die and perish.A visit to cemetery on birthday. is to remind us that we have one year less to live .We should do good in the remaining period of our life.Second .more traitors in India. than terrorist in Pakistan. lt is obvious and requires no proof.Glad a religious has raised this issue which should be a primary concern of our political class.Hope we all wake up to the danger these traitors pose to the integrity of the country.

    This was the monk invited to address Haryana assembly and obviously gets along well with RSS/BJP. Even monks/preachers/mullahs should be listened with critical attention, with awareness of their ideological baggage (especially if they seem to bolster our own prejudices). If we give too much attention and credibility to religious figures as we tend to do in this country (they too are human) , and fail to exercise our own innate thought faculties, we are at risk of being led by the nose down the garden path.
