Former Senior Executive at the Sanatan Dharma Maha Saba, Devant Maharaj, says the Government missed an opportunity to play its part in acknowledging the important role played by the former General Secretary of the Sanatan Dharma Maha Saba, Sat Maharaj, in national development. 

Despite calls for the Government to offer a state funeral for Mr. Sat Maharaj, the family has since indicated that it will refuse any such offer as the Sanatan Dhar­ma Ma­ha Sab­ha (SDMS) does not want a State fu­ner­al for its late Sec­re­tary Gen­er­al.

Devant Maharaj said nonetheless, it was telling that the offer of a State funeral was never even made.
