Varanasi. You must have heard the name of Tughlaqi Farman. If you want to see, then you will be seen on the ghats of Banaras. Here two Hindu organizations have pasted such posters, which are not only hurting the sentiments of the people, but are also preventing tourists from reaching a scenic spot.
Let us tell you what is written in these posters which is causing so much ruckus. In fact, two Hindu organizations have pasted some posters on the ghats of Banaras and warned non-Hindus on them. It has been said through the poster that the entry of non-Hindus is prohibited here. It is also written that if non-Hindus come to Ganga Ghat even after warning, they will be driven out from there.
On the banks of the Ganges where the late Bharat Ratna Ustad Bismillah Khan used to meditate with the shehnai, the magician of the shehnai, such posters show how people find excuses to create controversy. These posters have been put up by Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal. Apart from the Ganga Ghats of Kashi, there are plans to put up such posters in more temples. These posters have been put up in areas like Darbhanga Ghat, Manikarnika, Gai Ghat, Ram Ghat, Trilochan Ghat etc. Till the time of writing the news, no formal statement has come out from the police in this matter. However, it is being told that the police is working to remove these posters.
Ganga Ghat not a picnic spot
Bajrang Dal Kashi Metropolitan Convenor Nikhil Tripathi ‘Rudra’ says that now the Hindu society will have to show its strength and come forward to protect its religion and society. Nikhil Tripathi said that this poster is not a warning. This is a warning to those who think of our mother Ganga as a picnic spot. If he doesn’t stay away then Bajrang Dal will drive him away.
VHP Metropolitan Minister Rajan Gupta says that this is a message not a poster. For non-sanatan dharmis. On the banks of the Ganges, the temple is a symbol of the faith of Sanatan Dharma. We want to send a message through the poster that they should stay away from the symbol of our faith. If they have faith in Hinduism then they are welcome. If there is no faith, then we will also work to drive them out of here. This is not everyone’s wharf. It is the basic heritage of Hindu culture. These are the ghats of Hindus. It is the heritage of Indian culture.
