Some rules must be followed in a Church even if there is no written instruction there, similarly, in a Temple, these rules must be followed. However, the fanatic and Hindu-hater doctor comes up with such absurd reasons. – Editor) Doctor tries to justify the behaviour by saying she wore the footwear over the fear of contracting Covid-19 and Villagers refused to buy this argument.
