A Hindu speaker headlining a religious ceremony on Hollywood beach has religious groups angry throughout Broward County and the mayor canceling an appearance at the event.

Sadhvi Ritambhara, billed as an inspirational Hindu speaker, is slated to be part of Bhajans, a religious ceremony filled with songs and joyous praise at the Hollywood Beach Culture and Community Center today.

But the event has not brought joy to city officials, who have been inundated with calls from angry protesters. A press conference denouncing the event was held Friday by several Indian-American organizations on the steps of City Hall.

About 15 religious organizations are expected to stage a peaceful protest outside the beach community center today.

Turns out Ritambhara is a controversial figure in India. . .

Published reports indicate the controversial speaker is among those implicated in the destruction of a historic mosque in 1992, which is being investigated by the Central Intelligence Bureau in India.
