Demand to ban Sanatan

 We are waiting for a detailed report from them, only then will we decide whether to ban the Sanatan Sanstha or not, he said.

Voices are being raised against the Sanatan’s activities in Goa. On Sunday, villagers in Ramnathi, where the groups ashram is located, demonstrated outside its gates asking for the organisation — that claims to be a society for scientific spirituality — to be banned.
Naik said as home minister his primary concern was to ensure that the state’s security was in no way compromised. The only agenda of people like these is to divide Goan society. Earlier this year Naik signed the order that banned Sri Ram Sene head Pramod Muthalik from entering Goa.

Political patronage had helped Sanatan establish in Goa and the centre was now its virtual national headquarters, Naik said, emphasising that the organisation’s founder Jayant Athavale had also moved into the ashram here.
