Women dancing to Bollywood songs at Mahakal temple sparks row

The women had gone to offer prayers at Mahakaleshwar temple two days ago. They shot videos while dancing to Bollywood songs, and uploaded them on social media.

The temple management has demanded action against the women.

According to sources, the temple priests were “quite miffed” as videos were shot inside the sanctum sanctorum and other places of the temple.

Videos were shot on the tune of both Bollywood and Bhakti songs. One woman shot the video while performing ‘jal abhishek’ in the sanctum sanctorum of the Mahakal temple while another shot it while roaming around the temple premises.

Taking cognizance of the matter, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra has ordered an inquiry.

“I have instructed the Collector and the Superintendent of Police to investigate the matter. Messing with religious beliefs in any way would not be tolerated,” said Mishra.

The minister also said such activities hurt the sanctity of the temple, and people should refrain from doing them.
