The Kanchi Shankaracharya formed a political party while I was away:

The party, for the time being, has no plans to contest elections, but it does have a manifesto: A law banning religious conversions, another one to ban cow slaughter and shifting of administrative powers over temples from government to private organisations.

I agree with the third point but the rest of it bullsh*t — or to use a holy metaphor, cow-dung.
