Loudspeakers on the dome of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple in Mathura have been switched OFF

In the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple, from the morning Mangla Aarti to the night's aarti, and during other events/rituals, the loudspeaker is played and this voice can be heard outside the premises as well.


Mathura: The Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust in Mathura has been switched off the loudspeakers on the roof of the Bhagwat Bhawan located in the temple premises. This has been done on the appeal of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. Kapil Sharma, secretary of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Trust and Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan, said that the loudspeaker on the dome of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple has been switched off from Wednesday.


From the morning Mangla Aarti to the night's Aarti, and other events/rituals, the loudspeaker used to play in the temple and its voice was heard outside the premises as well. Along with this, the sound of bhajans played inside the Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple complex has also been slowed down so that the sound does not go outside the premises, he said. Sharma said that this has been done on the call of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.


Significantly, the Chief Minister had said on Monday that everyone has the freedom to follow the system of worship according to their religious ideology. He had said that the mic can be used, but ensure that the voice does not come out of the premises and does not disturb other people.


In the backdrop of incidents of communal tension and violence at many places on the day of Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti, Yogi had said on Monday that processions/religious processions should not be taken out without due permission and before giving permission to the organizer to maintain peace and harmony.
