KATHMANDU: The Pashupati Area Development Trust has strongly condemned the collection of donations by a group of people citing medical treatment of ailing Dr Swami Prapannacharya, who is currently undergoing treatment at Norvic Hospital in Kathmandu.
“We have learnt that a group of people have been collecting money for ailing Swami’s treatment,” reports quoted Narottam Vaidya, Treasurer of PADT as saying. The PADT condemned the Act. The PADT said that these people are cheating general public in the name of collecting money for the treatment of Swami.
Dr Swami Prapannacharya was admitted to Norvic Hospital 10 days ago after he complained of respiratory problems. In the leadership of Pashupati Area Development Trust member-secretary Sushil Nahata and Vaidya, PADT had admitted him to the hospital.
“The PADT has officially decided that it will bear his treatment expenses until his recovery. However, we are shocked that some people are collecting money in the name of Swami’s treatment,” Vaidya added.
Dr Swami Prapannacharya, PhD in Vedas, is a prominent scholar of Vedas and Hinduism, who has been advocating for making Nepal a Hindu state and a democratic nation. Swami was born in 1923 in a secluded village of Bardanda of Panchthar district in eastern Nepal. He was educated in India and later became a famous Hindu scholar following his popular discourses on Hindu philosophy. Unmarried Swami has been living in a religious shelter in the vicinity of Pashupatinath Temple for several years.
