VELLORE: Around 50 cadres attached to the Shiv Sena were arrested on Monday, for staging a ‘road roko’ opposite to the Collectorate,  protesting against Salim Ghouse, a former professor of Zoology in a private college in Arcot, who had started the Mukti Marga Sabha ashram in Mordhana in Gudiyattam.

The cadres claimed that Salim Ghouse, a self proclaimed swami was swindling money from people of Hindu community. “Salim is swindling Hindu people’s money and brain washing the youth to convert them to Muslim religion. A week ago,  Salim’s representatives came to my house and tried to negotiate with me,” claimed G Radhakrishnan, state executive president of Shiv Sena. He added that they had complained to the Gudiyattam taluk police station and to the SP’s  office but no action has been taken.

However, Salim in a written statement said, he had never indulged in converting Hindu youth to Muslim religion or cheating people of money.  He said, many villagers in Mordhana, including the former panchayat president Kuberan, were threatening him.
