Political and social activist Swami Agnivesh was brutally beaten by a mob in Pakur some 380 kms from Jharkhand, recently. He was there to meet and address tribal communities that are protesting against the Raghubar Das government for making available mineral-rich tribal land to large corporations. He claims his attackers were from the BJP, its youth wing and other affiliated organisations. On Off Centre, he describes what it feels like to be at the receiving end of mob violence and why although he’s a saffron wearing sanyasi, he’s out of favour with the ruling dispensation and its supporters.
