Recently, a Twitter handle which goes by the name Tribal Army (@TribalArmy) shared a video which shows Pandit Dhirendra Shashtri telling his followers that he spoke with Ravan (the demon-king of Sri Lanka from the Hindu epic Ramayan). In their tweet, Tribal Army states that the Swami did not reveal Ravan’s number as it will expose his lies and hypocrisies.

Here’s the tweet:


But who is this swami and why is he famous in his city? Let’s look at his history and what Twitter has to say.

Who is Pandit Dhirendra Shashtri?

Pandit Dhirendra Shashtri is a native of the Gada village of Chhatarpur district in Madhya Pradesh. He is an immensely popular personality in both India and abroad. He began his career as a swami when he began narrating Ram Katha.

His Controversies:

While seems to have a clean image, he has been embroiled in controversies. When Hindu processions during Ram Navami were pelted, he asked the Hindus to unite as disunited Hindus would suffer immensely. He further asked the Hindus to bulldoze the houses of the stone pelters.
