Dwarka Shankaracharya loses cool, slaps scribe
Swaroopanand Saraswati, the Shankaracharya of Dwarka, struck a resounding controversy when he allegedly slapped a television reporter for asking him about Narendra Modi’s prospects of becoming prime minister. The incident occurred on Tuesday while the seer was interacting with journalists during his visit for a religious function. ‘Rajniti ki baat nahi karna (Don’t talk politics),’ the seer admonished the reporter as he slapped him. The indecorous episode involving the venerated Shankaracharya was aired by national television channels.
