VHP calls for re-opening of temples in Maharashtra

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has requested the Maharashtra Government to consider reopening of temples, as lockdown is being slowly lifted. In
In a video statement on Wednesday, VHP national spokesperson Vinod Bansal said that temples, mutts and gurudwaras, which he described as “centres of spiritual energy,” should now open in Maharashtra.

“The Central government and state government are gradually opening up the country, in such scenario keeping the temples closed don’t appear like a rational decision, and then again, temples, mutts, gurudwaras and ashrams, which are centres for spiritual energy,” Bansal said.

Hindu society believes in law and upholding law. They are well aware of social distancing norms such as social distancing, masks and sanitization, Bansal further added.

He requested the Maharashtra Government to open up the temples for devotees as it would provide people with much needed spiritual and mental satisfaction in these depressing times.

Meanwhile, BJP on Maharashtra has also launched a state-wide agitation to press its demand for reopening of places of worship.
