Astrology is humbug - Uttam Khobragade

Mr.Uttam Khobragade,
General Manager of BEST
Mumbai: Shri. Uttam Khobragade, the General Manager of BEST said in a function that astrology is hypocrisy. He said that an astrologer is consulted to finalize the date of marriage, the spouse and where it is to be performed. This means that someone else takes decisions about important events in your life. All such things are humbug and it is everyone's duty to discourage such issues.

He was the chief guest at Dr. Ambedkar's birth anniversary function. He said that there has to be an in separable relationship between the principles propagated by Gautam Buddha, teachings of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar and the government. Indian social system has suppressed the exploited.       

He said that till the exploited populace does not rule, it will not be right to think that we are free. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was not a king of any particular community; but he was king of all his subjects. Emperor Ashok, Akbar and Chhatrapati Shivaji were the true secular kings. He said that the state will progress only when its ruler is secular.

Editor Note

Astrologer does not decide who will marry whom and when. But he only gives advice about the suitability as per the science of astrology. Shri. Khobragade has no control over what he talks.

The only cause of being exploited is the Indian democracy and not social system. It will be better if Shri. Khobragade stops such baseless allegations to avoid rift in society. If he really feels that the exploited should rule this country, he should undertake a campaign to withdraw reservations.

It is an insult to compare Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj with Akbar. Anti-Hindus like Khobragade should be taught a lesson.
