STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Urging J&K administration to make necessary measures for immersion of ashes (mortal remains), of people died during lockdown period, in holy Ganga as per Hindu customs, Shiv Sena J&K unit on Saturday urged Lieutenant Governor of J&K, Girish Chandra Murmu to start a special bus-service to Haridwar besides restoring trains as early as possible. Speaking during a sit-in protest, Shiv Sena J&K President Manish Sahni said that ashes (mortal remains) of Hindus, who died during corona crisis and lockdown, are laying in a miserable condition at various temples and cremation grounds. “As per Hindu religion, the deceased does not get salvation until immersion of ashes into holy Ganges. As such, J&K administration should allow families of the deceased to go to Haridwar for immersion of ashes besides starting a special bus services between Jammu and Haridwar for facilitating their movement,” he asserted. “If the administration is unable to allow family members of deceased to proceed towards Haridwar due to present circumstances, then the Shiv Sena, which is not only a political party but an organisation who understands emotions of Hindus, should be handed over the responsibility for immersion of ashes into holy Ganga. Famous saint of Haridwar, Swami Rajeshwara Nand ji Maharaj has assured full cooperation in this noble work. He is the same sage, who did community immersion of ashes in Ganges after Gujarat earthquake. Rajeshwara Nand ji Maharaj has been immersing various unclaimed ashes from many cremation grounds of Delhi in holy Ganga. As such, if this responsibility will be given to Shiv Sena, we will fulfill the same as per Hindu customs,” he maintained. Others present on the occasion included Ashwini Gupta, Raj Singh, Raju Salaria, Bhuri Singh and Rajesh Handa.
