Bolsonaro supporter vandalises Brazil beach memorial to coronavirus victimsA beach memorial to Brazil’s coronavirus victims has been vandalised by a supporter of the country’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro. Brazilians critical of their government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic dug 100 shallow graves marked with black crosses in the sand of Rio’s Copacabana beach on Thursday to symbolise the country’s lives lost to the disease. The tribute, organised by non-governmental organisation Rio de Paz, came in protest as Brazil’s death toll from the coronavirus crisis topped 40,000, while cases surpassed 800,000.

"I got to know about the work of Jonas Masetti, who is also known as 'Vishvanath'. Jonas gives lessons on Vedanta and Geeta in Brazil. He runs an organisation called 'Vishvavidya' which is located in hills of Petropolis about an hour's drive from Rio de Janeiro," PM Modi added. "After completing mechanical engineering, Jonas worked for his stock market company. Later, he was attracted towards Indian culture, especially towards Vedanta. He studied Vedanta in India and spent four years at Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore. I congratulate Jonas for his efforts," PM further stated.
