Mumbai: The Mumbai Press Club today condemned the attack on journalists, who were covering the pre-Holi celebrations at Asaram Bapu ashram in neighbouring Thane.

A group of followers of Asaram Bapu yesterday allegedly assaulted mediapersons and damaged their equipment, apparently angry at criticism over wastage of water at a pre-Holi function by the self-styled godman in drought-hit Maharashtra.

Asaram Bapu's followers pelted stones at television news channel reporters and assaulted them, damaging their video cameras, the police said.
