An outfit called Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) has asked its workers from all over the country to come to Varanasi on August 3 and perform “Jalabhishek” at Shringar Gauri temple, located behind the historic Gyanvapi Masjid. The outfit is planning to launch ‘Islam mukt Bharat’ (Islam-free India) campaign on the very day, reports Indian Express. Due to the area being communally sensitive, there is a restriction on performance of religious rituals.
“We do no need permission from any person or authority for offering prayers at any Hindu religious place…and launch an agitation to free Gyanvapi area from Muslims.”

“The entry to Shringar Gauri is prohibited and people are not allowed to perform any ritual there. Only CRPF personnel camp near Shringar Gauri. Furthermore, no information has been received from any organisation for holding any programme at Shringar Gauri. If the ABHM will seek permission, it will be certainly denied.”
Varanasi is the parliamentary constituency of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
