The Vishwa Hindu Parishad today demanded registration of a case against social activist Swami Agnivesh for his remarks on Amarnath pilgrimage which, it said, had hurt sentiments of Hindus.
The VHP also demanded recall of Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra, who is also chairman of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board, for his failure to take action against Agnivesh.
"We urge President Pratibha Patil to recall Vohra over his failure to take action against Agnivesh for his anti-yatra remarks," VHP state head Ramakant Dubey told reporters here.
He also demanded resignation of members of the Shrine Board in this regard.
The VHP leader said a case should be registered against Agnivesh for his remarks against the Amarnath yatra which had "hurt feelings of crores of Hindus".
On the annual pilgrimage to the revered cave shrine of Amarnath, Agnivesh recently said, "I do not understand those who go for the yatra. It is a religious deception."
"I do not believe in this type of religion. Religion is when you seek justice for the poor, for the oppressed," he said on the sidelines of a Peace Conference in Srinagar.
