RESENTMENT IS brewing among the members of Hindu community here over showing Lord Krishna dressed in jeans and T-shirt recently in Vrindavan.
Religious heads of Hindu community believed that dressing Lord Krishna in jeans and T-shirt with a mobile phone in hand, was against the spirit of Vedas and Sanatan Dharma. This attempt was part of a big conspiracy to defame the Hindu religion, they believed.
General secretary of Uttar Pradesh Shashtrarth Samiti and secretary of Kashi Yuva Vidvat Parishad, Dr Ram Narayan Dwivedi said that dressing Lord Krishna in jeans and T-shirt was against Sanatan Dharma and also against the Vedas.
Dr Dwivedi, who is also priest of Annapurna temple, demanded stern action against those involved in dressing Lord Krishna against the tradition. He added “Hindu community would never tolerate such insult of its deities”. “It was an attempt to show the influence and supremacy of western culture over Hindu culture and religion”, he said.
Chief priest of Kashi Sumeru Peeth, Swami Narendranand Saraswati, said that dressing Lord Krishna in jeans and T-shirt was part of well-planned conspiracy to hurt the religious sentiments of 80 crore Hindus.
He said the priest supervising the entire religious rituals should be sacked immediately so that no other person made any such attempts in future.
Meanwhile, students of Dharma Sangh Shiksha Mandal took out a procession at Durga Kund area on Saturday evening and torched jeans trousers to register their protest against dressing Lord Krishna in jeans and T-shirt in Vrindavan recently.
The students were carrying placards conveying messages such as ‘Bhagwan Ko Bhagwan Rahne Do’, ‘Bhagwan Ka Apman Nahi Sahega Hindustan’ and ‘Astha Ke sath Mazak Band Karo’. etc. Secretary of Dharma Sangh, Jagjeetan Pandey, Ganesh Pandey, Govind Mishra and Raja Pathak were among those who participated in the march and torched modern clothes.
