The idea that the Tsunami hitting TN is divine revenge for the treatment meted out to the Sankaracarya is not unique. Mullas in the mideast have said it is punishment to the debauchery of Western and other infidel tourists in those beach resorts. And that it is divine condemnation of unauthorized festivals like Xmas and New Yrs. Priests in the US gloated over the deaths of nmerous Swede tourists, because recently Sweden had prosecuted a priest for speaking out against homosexuality. The list goes on.
Most pious people actually worship an extension of their false egos. This is the pride that follows piety. Abe Lincoln wrote to a friend: "Men are not flattered whe they are shown that God's plans may be different from their own."
