Non-Hindus now require prior permission for entry into Somnath temple

2

One of the most iconic and famous temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Somnath temple in Gujarat will now be out of bound for non-Hindus. Temple authorities have now decided, not to allow people from other faiths to visit the temple without prior permission.

One of the prime reasons given by the authorities for this decision is, protection of the “sanctity” of the temple.

“Shree Somnath Jyotirling is a pilgrimage for Hindus. Non-Hindus will have to obtain permission from General Manager’s Office (of the temple) to enter the sacred pilgrim-place,” said a notice which has been put up by the temple authorities at the main entrance.

Speaking to a news agency, Vijaysinh Chavda, Deputy Manager of Somnath trust said,

“If you go to Parsi Agiyari, what they put outside on notice board is non-Parsis are not allowed inside. Can you enter Mecca city? Every religion has its right to regulate.”

The famous Shiva temple, located near Veraval town of Gir-Somnath district, is governed by a trustee board which is headed by former Gujarat Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi and senior BJP leader L K Advani are other trustees as per reports.

  1. SAFFRON LUMPENS MUDDLING HINDUTVA :- I AM PROUD TO BE A HINDU BECAUSE WE ARE LIBERAL. WE BELIEVE ALL RELIGIONS PAVES THE WAY TO ALMIGHTY.

    BUT UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE NOW HAVING SOME EXTREMELY HYPERACTIVE “SAFFRON EXTREMISTS” THOSE WHO HAD BEEN RESPONSIBLE IN KILLING GANDHIJI AND EVEN WORSHIP GANDHI’S MURDERER NATHURAM OR NOW CREATING CONCOCTED STORIES AS “LOVE JIHAD” TO PROMOTE DIVISIVE POLITICS.

    THOSE “SAFFRON EXTREMISTS”, THOSE WHO HAD GIVEN THE SLOGAN ON ONE OF THE OLDEST HOLY LAND OF OUR SACRED VARANASI “HAR HAR MODI” MOCKERING “HAR HAR MAHADEV” ARE SUCH ROGUES THAT THEY THEY ARE NOW IMPOSING BAN ON OTHER RELIGIONS TO ENTER INTO A HINDU TEMPLE.

    WE HAVE SEEN THOSE “SAFFRON EXTREMISTS” ALONG WITH SO CALLED “MUSLIM JIHADIS” ARE NOW ACTIVE IN SPREADING HOOLIGANISM IN ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. THE SO CALLED JIHADIS MAY HAVE BEEN INSTIGATED FROM OUTSIDE OUR COUNTRY, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE HINDU FANATICS???? THEY ARE NOW GETTING PROTECTION AND HAVING PATRONAGE UNDER THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT EVEN GETTING PROMOTED AS CABINET MINISTERS. THEY BOTH SHOULD BE EQUALLY DEPLORED AND CONDEMNED.

    IF WE CONTINUE BANNING THE SENTIMENTS AND BELIEVES OF THE NON-HINDUS, WHAT I AM AFRAID, THAT WE ARE HEADING TOWARDS A NATION LIKE PAKISTAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
