BELUR: A certain section of members of the Ramakrishna Mission has expressed dissatisfaction over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's political speech on the Citizenship (Amendment) Act at the Belur Math. Following this, the Ramakrishna Math and Mission on Sunday distanced itself from the PM's remarks on CAA, contending that it was a strictly apolitical body that did not respond to "ephemeral" calls.

During his address from the Belur Math, Narendra Modi had said that the new law would not take away anybody's citizenship. Modi also said that a section of the youth was being misguided about the CAA.


Addressing a press meet here, Swami Suvirananda, the Ramakrishna Math and Mission general secretary, said, "The organisation will not comment on the prime minister's speech on CAA. We are a strictly apolitical body. We have come here after leaving our homes to answer eternal calls. We do not respond to ephemeral calls."

He said the mission believed in inclusivity.


"We are an inclusive organization, which has monks from Hindu, Islam and Christian communities. We live like brothers of the same parents.


"To us, Narendra Modi is the leader of India and Mamata Banerjee the leader of West Bengal," Swami Suvirananda added.
