Sangh Parivar's popularity!

Public memory is proverbially short. Recall the countrywide protest mounted by Sangh Parivar outfits against the arrest of Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati. AIADMK Chief Minister J Jayalalalithaa was demonised by the Parivar for arresting the Hindu pontiff on charges of murder.

Well, it is a comment on the collective Hindu mind in general and the standing of the Sangh Parivar in the community in particular that in the recent election to the Tamil Nadu assembly from the Hindu-dominated Mylapuram constituency — where the Kanchi Math is located — the winner is Jayalalithaa's party.
