The cancer is not only in Lokesh Sori’s body but also in the Dwij mind

Social and cultural worker Lokesh Sori, who had an FIR registered against the depiction of Mahishasur’s slaughter, is battling cancer. The RSS men are claiming that the cancer is a result of Durga’s ire. But then, Golwalkar, the second sarsanghchalak of the RSS, also had cancer and eventually succumbed. Was he cursed by Mahishasur?

On 28 September 2017, for the first time in the country, a police complaint was lodged against the organizers of Durga Puja in Chhattisgarh’s Kanker district for the depiction of the slaying of Mahishasur by Goddess Durga.

He is associated with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and enjoys wide support in the area, because of which the pressure started mounting on the police to take action on his complaint. But before the end of the day, the news had reached the office of the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister and the RSS headquarters in Delhi, and despite the pressure from the public, the Kanker police did not convert Sori’s complaint into an FIR.
