"Sai Baba a ghost, Hindus should not worship him", says Shankaracharya who predicts more rapes after women's entry in Shani temple
"For Hindus, the status of a dead person is that of 'pret' (ghost) and Muslims call it 'jinn' (djinn).
What else is there at Shirdi? If you worship a ghost, it will cause drought", said Saraswati, a pro-Congress seer.
Shankaracharya said that Sai Baba's idols were now in almost every house in Maharashtra and this is the reason for drought in the State.
Incidentally, there are nearly 10 states in India, that are facing severe drought this summer, and Maharashtra is not alone.
The Hindu seer went on to say that women's forcibly entry into Shani temple in the State was a bad omen. "If women worship Shani, there will be more rapes in the country", he said. Swaroopanand Saraswati is one of the most influential and respected Hindu religious heads.
A major protest was launched by women for entry into the Shani Shingnapur temple recently. After the protests, the women have now been allowed to enter the temple and perform worship just like the male devotees.
