Girnar (Gujarat), January 1, 2013: Digambar Jain Muni 108 Sri Prabhalsagarji Maharaj (disciple of Acharya 108 Sri Pushpadantha Sagarji Maharaj) was attacked by miscreants at around 6:35 pm at Girnar. He has been stabbed in his stomach 4 times through knife by the miscreants and has been seriously injured. Muni Sri is in a critical condition. Earlier in the day a group of Jains along with Upadhyaya Muni 108 Sri Gyanasagarji Maharaj & Muni 108 Sri Prabhalasagarji Maharai had visited the Girnar hill to offer their prayers at the foot impressions of Lord Sri Neminath on the Girnar hill.

Muni Maharaj is in the 5th tonk of the Girnar hill when reports last came in (12 midnight January 1, 2013). Efforts are on to get Muni Sri to the foot steps of the hill by dholi. Around 1000 people are said to be assembled at the

It can be recalled here that there exists a long standing dispute on Girnar hills between the Jains & a section of people said to have been the followers of Guru Datta. This incident might have been an outfall of this dispute and a section of people might have been enraged over the visit of Digambar Jain Munis to the hillock.

Muni Sri Out of Danger - After the attack Muni Sri bleeded very badly & became unconcious. He was shifted to the hospital & 4 bottles each of glucose & blood were given to him.

Upadhaya Muni 108 Sri Gyanasagarji Maharaj, Kshullakha 105 Sri Dhyanasagarji Maharaj, Aryika Sri Vigyanamati Mataji are all present at Girinar along with Muni Sri.

Renounced from Diksha: Since Muni Sri is subjected to medication he has been renounced from diksha as per the instructions received from his guru Achrya 108 Sri Pushpadantha Sagarji Maharaj. Muni Sri was very dissappointed owing to the fact that he has been renounced from Muni Diksha. He will be reinstated into the ascetichood once he recovers fully from the injuries.

Jai Jinendra,

"Hum nahin Digambar,Shwetambar, Terahpanthi, Sthanakwasi, Hum ek panth ke anuyayi, Hum ek dev ke vishwasi, Hum Jaini Apna Dharm Jain, Itna hi Parichay Kewal Ho"

This act shows that a section wants to capture the Girnar hill, Now the time has come to be unite and to demand security at all the Jain tirth & Atistahaya Khetra. We should also demand the minority status, so that the previlages available to the minority pilgrimages can also be demanded from the government. Our biggest weakness is that we doesn't have a national council which is accepted by all jains all over the India, just because of this reason our protest remains in the regional boundaries and does not impact to any political Prty at the central level. We should work in building the political connections and to make political representation at the central level. Instead of using our own funds we should force the government to provide the basic facilities to us like others.

This is a shocking incident we jains follow "AHIMSA" we never hurt other religious sentiments likewise we expect the same from other religions. The State Government of Gujarat should take stern action against culprits & protect interests of Jains who follow non-violence & should assure the minorities such heneious crime will not occur in future. It is very sad now-a-days the young generation is not taking active roll in religious activities. We should all unite together by participating in religious, cultural/social activities. For e.g., Jain Milan is one such place to meet, discuss day-to-day events, exchange our views, to take necessary steps in encouraging our future generation to main stream. Our sincere thanks to Mayank Konjolia, Darpan Jain, Manish Jain, H P Sumathi Kumar & Jain Heritage Centres News Service to awakening people around the world. We pray for the early recovery of Munishree.
Jai Jinendra
