[ZESTCaste] Senior saint moots 'Shahi Snan' for dalits in kumbh



Senior saint moots 'Shahi Snan' for dalits in kumbh

Dehradun, Feb 1 : Swami Yatindranand Giri, Mahamandaleswar of Juna
Akhada, has mooted an idea of holding a 'Shahi Snan' for dalits during
Kumbh Mela, which is likely to spark a dispute.

Speaking to mediapersons at Hardwar yesterday, he also put forward a
proposal to allow some nationalist Muslims to perform 'Ganga Pujan' at
Har Ki Paudi though people belonging to religion other than Hinduism
are not encouraged to even enter Har Ki Paudi area.

Swami said he intends to hold a 'Shahi Snan' for dalits during the
mela to promote spirit of equality among all Hindus.

Swami said a campaign would also be launched to promote awareness
about the environment among the public.
