Hindu outfits protest against stopping a man from entering Taj Mahal with idol

Agra: A tourist from Jaipur allegedly was stopped from entering the Taj Mahal with a Lord Krishna idol.

Hindu outfits called out the incident saying they will protest if action is not taken against those who stopped the tourist.

The tourist, Gautam, told reporters that the official cited security reasons for stopping him from entering with the idol.

An official from the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said he will enquire about the matter with the CISF officials.

"Laddu Gopal is like a family member and I always carry him. I have visited Mathura and Vrindavan with the Lord. But here they asked me to enter without God's idol," Gautam said.

Prince Vajpayee, Conservation Assistant (CA) at Taj Mahal said: "I too have got a video in this regard. But I have no information whether the incident was on Monday or some other day. Will enquire about the incident from the CISF.

"I will ask any devout shopkeeper to keep the idol of the Lord while we visit the monument."

Govind Parashar, national president of the Rashtriya Hindu Parishad Bharat, said: "Strict action should be taken against those who have insulted the Lord. If action is not taken, we will protest."
