Open temples with all Covid-19 precautions, demands VHP

New Delhi: The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Monday sought the opening of all the temples, gurudwaras, ashrams and other places of worship in the country, but with all the Covid-19 precautions.

In a statement, VHP Central Working president Alok Kumar said, “People locked in their homes for a long time, due to the Corona pandemic, have started going through mental pressures and stress, and consequently going to fall prey to depressions. In such a situation, they will be able to get rid of that mental stress by visiting temples and other places of worship.”

“…thus now it is the right time that the government should allow temples, gurudwaras and ashrams etc. to open soon,” Kumar said.

“As a result of which, the increasing adverse effects on the mental-psychological health of the people, locked in their homes, due to this pandemic, can be curbed,” he said.
