5 Saints dead under Hindutva rule for Ganga

Several Sadhus from Matri Sadan Ashram in Haridwar have sat on hunger strikes to save the Ganga from environmental degradation. Since 2014, two Sadhus have died because of hunger strikes, and one is missing. Ironically for a government that claims to uphold Hindu values, no one from the government has reached out to the sadhus on hunger strike and have in fact, let them die.
