Recently, Dwarka Shankaracharya, Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati stirred controversy by claiming that since Shirdi Sai was a human and that there are no mention of him any Hindu scripture, he shouldn't be worshipped.
Is there any basis for his allegation? Does Hindu scriptures prohibits worship of humans?
Is a seer right in issuing a carpet ban on worship of a 'god' on this basis?
