Asom Satra Mahasabha president visits North Bengal satras: The president of the Asom Satra Mahasabha, Jitendra Nath Prodhani visited various satras of North Bengal since June 26- July 3 for spreading of ‘ek saran naam dharma’ established by Guru Srimanta Sankaradeva and Madhabdeva some 550 years ago. This was done for the fostering of brotherhood between the people of Assam and North Bengal. According to the Satradhikar, the tour programme was undertaken in wake of the assault on the Deka Satradhikar of Madhupur Satra Pitambar Roy Bhakat by one Pintu Roy. The culprit must be punished and the satra should be free from all such incidents, the president demanded.
