It was written in Hindi on the posters that non-Hindus cannot enter the Holy ghats. Ganga ghats and temples of Kashi are symbols of Sanatan Dharma, Indian culture, faith and belief. Those who have faith in Sanatan Dharma are welcome here. Otherwise, this place is not a tourist spot. It is a warning and not a request.
Non-Hindus violate the sanctity of the Kashi ghats – Bajrang Dal
Bajrang Dal Varanasi Coordinator, Nikhil Tripathi speaking to PTI said that non-Hindus are violating the sanctity of the Ganga ghats in Kashi. That is why they have been warned. This is a warning to those who do not have faith in Sanatan Dharma. A few days ago, a picture of a girl drinking beer was seen on the ghat. The ghats and temples here are symbols of Sanatan Dharma. If any such person is seen on the ghat, we will hand him over to the Police. (This is the job of the Police and the Administration, were they sleeping when such incidents happened ? – Editor)
