This is the future of Hindu rashtra which Hindutva fraternity wants to convert India into. Incidentally a friend called the mobile number mentioned in the bill board. The gentleman on line was Mr. Shrinivas K., in-charge of the badminton tournament restricted to Daivadnya Brahmins being held at Belgaum on 20-21 June 2015. He told that this branch of Brahmins is mostly found in Karnataka and Kerala and most of them are running gold businesses. According to him only his kind of Brahmins will be allowed. However, from next year they may open it for all Brahmins.

But the most astonishing fact he shared was that his organization is closely linked to RSS. This gentleman has been president of the Bhartiya Yuva Morcha (youth organization of RSS). According to him Daivadnya Brahmins have been steadily supporting BJP. He shared the fact that the plan of this exclusive tournament was finalized in consultation with the Sangh.
