A meeting of the Kerala Gowda Saraswatha Brahmins (GSB) here on Sunday decided to retrieve the movable and immovable property, and the invaluable idols of the Kashi Math from Swami Raghavendratheertha.
The GSB community has resolved to move against Swami Raghavendratheerta, who is allegedly “absconding along with the idols” even after the Supreme Court's order in March favouring the Kerala GSB. The community also decided to bring these facts to the notice of the Chief Minister and other authorities concerned.
The meeting of GSB was inaugurated by Kapil R. Pai, president, Cochin Thirumala Devaswom. He called upon the faithful to protect the community's culture, language, and rituals.
V. Santharam Kamath, convenor of the GSB meet, presided over the function. K. Narayan Pai, secretary, Bangalore Shree Kashi Math, presented the status report of Kashi Math.
