Sadhus Prohibited to Carry These Things to Ram Temple Inauguration in Ayodhya

Ayodhya: The sadhus invited to the inauguration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya have been prohibited to carry their dandi (stick), chhatra (umbrella) and paduka (wooden footwear) with them as such items would be prohibited for security reasons.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to attend this inauguration ceremony and “pran pratishtha” of the idol on January 22.

This inauguration ceremony will be attended by around 7,000 guests, including 4,000 sadhus and saints from different parts of the country. The rituals of the inauguration ceremony will start on January 16.

Sri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust has requested these sadhus and representatives of all the important temples of India not to carry anything with them to the venue for security reasons. This includes dandi, chhatra and paduka. During the inauguration ceremony, the venue would be under the security cover of the Special Protection Group (SPG).

In the past sadhus have protested against any prohibition on such items, which they carry as per the tradition. But they have not reacted yet to the recent directive.
