The news of the untimely and sudden demise of the most respected Jagadguru Ramanandacharya Swami Hansdevacharya today has filled me with anguish. He left this mortal body in a terrible road accident while travelling to Haridwar from Prayagraj Kumbh. His departure is an irreparable loss to the entire Hindu society.

He played a leading and important role in the ongoing movement for the construction of a temple at Sri Rama Janmabhumi. The pujya Swamiji was also the President of the Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti. With his demise, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has lost a true well-wisher and friend. With his energetic oratory, he filled Hindu society with a new self-confidence. A bearer of social harmony and true national leadership, the life and work of Swamiji will always be a source of inspiration for everyone. We pray to the Lord that he may grant a place at his blessed feet to Pujya Swamiji and grant the ability to bear this extreme pain, to all of us, including his worldwide followers.
