Pastors By RAM SUNDAR CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) At day- break every morning a small group of monks gather on the banks of the Ganges river in Hardwar, northern India. After having a dip in the river, they chant Hindu prayers and march through the Himalayan town's ancient streets, distributing hand- written appeals to citizens to "beware of the enemies of spiritualism." Hardwar. the world-famous citadel of Hinduism, is at pre- sent witnessing a campaign for what Ram Dev Shastri calls "the purification and regeneration of Hinduism." Shastri, 65, says he is deeply pained by the "com- mercialization" of the Hindu faithy "Some of the so-called monks here are hawking Hin- duism to foreigners especially Americans. Canadians and Germans as if it is a factory product." the religious leader said. With his flowing orange robes and magnificent white beard, Shastri looks every inch a guru. Among the 50-odd disciples who join Shastri in his morn- ing march are two Canadian- born Hindu monks. They are Daniel MacDonald of Hamilton, Ont., and James Ricker of Vancouver. Twenty nine year-old MacDonald came to India four years ago, while Ricker, 32, arrived in Hardwar last year after working as a chemist in Melbourne, Australia. The two Canadians now have adopted Indian names is Prahlad and Ricker is Ramkishen. Shastri claims a following of more than in the moun- tainous region around Hardwar and adjoining Rishikesh. His monastery is situated near Badrinath, 200 miles from Hardwar. but he comes down to Hardwar for several months in the year. The Hindu religious leader said that with more and more Western tourists coming to Hardwar to see its famous temples and watch its spec- tacular bathing festivals, "some unscrupulous elements have begun to trade in religion.'.' He cited the recent Kumbha Mela festival which was at- tended by nearly five million people, including Ameri- can and Canadian tourists. Shastri said that many so- called monks made a lot of money during the festival by posing as yogis and gurus. One Canadian couple from Montreal is said to have paid to a monk to teach them yoga physical culture techni- ques "The visiting Canadians could have got better informa- tion by buying a yoga book for said Shastri.

South African defence bill 'creates martyr atmosphere' By STANLEY UYS London Observer CAPE TOWN A bill, which imposes a "ferocious" penalty of a fine or 10 years" imprisonment on anyone who encourages anyone else, even indirectly, not to perform military ser- vice, has just passed its se- cond reading in the South African parliament in spite of a warning by the Catholic Archbishop of Cape Town, the Most Rev. Denis Hurley, that it could create a new genera- lion of Christian martyrs. Only the seven Progressive Parly MPs voted against the bill, which they believe will remove from the arena of debate the question of the morality of the anti-guerrilla wars bang by South Africa on its northern borders The defence bill was introduced immediately after the South African Council of Churches had approved a resolution challenging the justness" of the anti-guerrilla wars The Christian chnrrbf; in Smith Afnta have been thrown into a ferment of by this resolution. In a widely-distributed letter, Dr Theo Kolze. Cape director of tfie anti-apartheid Christian Institute of Southern Africa, writes The implications of the bill are temblv scrum iVv whole church This bill restricts our pastoral duty, it inhibits the counselling of ministers and others. We can- not under any circumstances surrender our duty to be pastors to the flock of Christ and we must make this known. "We dare not surrender the right to encourage young peo- ple to face moral issues and there are serious moral issues at stake. The enormous penalties the bill prescribes do not cancel the imperative of obedience to our Lord." In his statement. Archbishop Hurley said: "The religious freedom of the West has cost the lives of many martyrs Our government is now creating a martyr situation, because there are some convinced people m this country some Christians, some humanists who will have to make the agonizing choice between witnessing to their faith in justice and reconciliation and facing the crushing penalty of 10 years in jsal "These people firmly believe that to support or even not to oppose armed defence of the present -white domination in South Africa is to betray their own con- srienrp it is a terrible thing for a government to put a man's conscience on the rl Speaking in parliament, the leader of the Progressive Par- ty. Colin Eglin. said: "I ask this House to stop and think again before it attempts by legislation to silence discus- sion on the issue of military service. This discussion is part of the debate on the morality or immorality of violence, on civilized mankind's dilemma, on the legitimacy of violence, be it in maintaining a system or destroying it. be it in defence of a state or in the attack on a state. The debate on this great moral issue will continue Many South Africans. inHnding white politicians and clergymen, believe South Ainra can no more wm a guerrilla war on its borders than America rrmld wan war in Vietnam, or Portugal tJie war in Mozambique, or than Rhodesians can win the war now taking place in their country The alternative to a guerrilla war, Uiev say js to create a just society in South Afnca but this argument might be outlawed under the new legislation, unless the wording of the clause is changed by a select com- mittee to which Oie bill has been referred Progressive Party MPs
