Uttar Pradesh: Noted seer Jagadguru Paramhans Acharya Maharaj, who had urged the Centre to declare India a ‘Hindu Rashtra’ (Hindu nation) will be taking a ‘Jal samadhi’ in Ayodhya’s Sarayu river today. ‘Jal samadhi’ is when a person ends their life by immersing themselves in water.

Earlier this week, Paramhans Acharya Maharaj had issued an ultimatum to the government: if India is not declared a Hindu Rashtra by October 2nd, he would take ‘Jal samadhi’ in the Sarayu River. He had also appealed to the Centre to officially end the nationality of all Muslims and Christians living in India.

Preparations are underway in Ayodhya as the influential seer determines to take a permanent plunge into the Sarayu River at noon today. As per sources, Circle Officer Ayodhya Rajesh Rai told that Paramhans has been put under house arrest and is not allowed to step outside for any reason. Sources said that the police is trying to convince Paramhans to submit a memorandum of his demands to higher authorities.

A few months ago, Paramhans Acharya Maharaj had lit a pyre in the ascetic camp for the same demand and talked about immolating himself on it. He was prevented from doing so after the Ayodhya Police placed him under house arrest.

He also undertook a 15-day long fast into death over the Hindu Rashtra issue and broke his fast after Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s intervention and assurances.
