Sanatan Sanstha condoles "atheist" Dabholkar's murder

Sanatan Sanstha, a Hindu right-wing group that had often been at loggerheads with the slain anti-superstition activist Dabholkar, today condemned his murder, saying the victim was a "logical and rationalist" person.

The Sanstha spokesperson Abhay Vartak said that even though they had filed more than 20 cases against Dabholkar, they had nothing personal against him and had regarded his as a "representative of atheists".

He said that their opposition to Dabholkar was limited in his capacity as atheist and not at personal level.

"We had filed cases in for false allegations made by him against the Sanstha. The of Dabholkar is shocking. We hope that the guilty will be arrested and brought to justice soon," Vartak said in a statement.

The spokesman said though Dabholkar was atheist, he was "logical" and consistent with scriptures.

However, he dismissed the allegations that the group has any hand in Dabholkar's murder.
