Jagadguru Shankaracharya Swami Avimukteshwaranand has once again given a big statement regarding Peethadhishwar Dhirendra Krishna Shastri of Bageshwar Dham. Avimukteshwaranand said that there are many such people in our country, who are showing miracles and cheating the public. We have asked all those people who are miraculous to come forward and fix the cracks in Joshimath. Shankaracharya has given a fearless response on the issue of religion, miracles and politics.
Let us inform that earlier Jagadguru Shankaracharya Swami Avimukteshwaranand had challenged the Peethadhishwar Dhirendra Krishna Shastri of Bageshwar Dham without taking his name and said that those who show miracles should stop the sinking ground in Joshimath, then I will recognize their miracle. At the same time, Dhirendra Shastri had reacted to this statement of Shankaracharya and only said that he respects his sentiments.
Now in a special conversation with ‘Aaj Tak’, Swami Avimukteshwaranand said that we are not familiar with Bageshwar Dham. Some people said that miracles are happening there, so we said that if it is so, then they should come to Joshimath and fix the cracks. We didn’t mean any person. He said that we have told all those people who are miraculous, they should come forward and fix the cracks of Joshimath.
Shankaracharya further said- Our people told us that he is going to come to meet us. If they come to us and accept the miracle, we will ask them what spiritual practice they have done? According to which scriptures and traditions he has done spiritual practice, what achievements he has got. The basis on which we are talking about miracles.

‘Attention diverted from Joshimath’s problem’
Shankaracharya said that the matter of Joshimath had become very big. Everyone’s attention was going in that direction, so this has been done to divert the attention. When there is a big problem in our country, such small things are presented in a very big way to divert the attention. Now everyone has forgotten Joshimath, while it is a big problem, everyone’s attention has been drawn towards it. How is the country benefiting from this?
‘Politics happening everywhere’
Is there politics in this miracle too? In response to this question, Shankaracharya said that where is politics now, politics is happening everywhere. Shankaracharya is in Chhattisgarh these days. He has also reacted to politically motivated conversions and vote bank politics in the name of religion. Also said that some people are spreading filth in the name of religion.

Shankaracharya said this on united India
Shankaracharya Avimukteshwaranand discussed about united India and talked about joining Pakistan in India. Also said that if Muslims are happy living in India, then there is no justification for creating a separate Muslim nation. In such a situation, other countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan should also join India. In this way the dream of united India will be fulfilled.
Shankaracharya also gave a statement on Pakistan
Recently, Shankaracharya had said in Jabalpur that when the British had left India, Mohammad Ali Jinnah had said that Muslims should be separated, because he would be happy to go to his land. That’s why India was divided and Pakistan was created, but even at that time some Muslims remained in India. If they are getting happiness and peace here, then what is the need to make Pakistan. That’s why this matter should be reconsidered once and Akhand Bharat should be built again.
