Row over pictures of Ram Lalla’s idol on social media
Chief Priest of Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Temple Acharya Satyendra Das on Saturday expressed his displeasure over the viral pictures of the Ram Lalla’s idol ahead of the ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony. Acharya Satyendra Das said that the eyes of Lord Ram should not be revealed before the ceremony and an investigation must be conducted on how the pictures are going viral on the internet.
“The eyes of Lord Ram’s idol cannot be revealed before Pran Pratishtha is completed. The idol where the eyes of Lord Ram can be seen is not the real idol. If the eyes can be seen, an investigation should be done on who revealed the eyes and how the pictures of the idol are going viral,” Acharya Satyendra Das told ANI.
“All the procedures will be carried out as usual. However, the eyes of Ram Lalla will not be revealed until the ‘Pran Pratishtha’,” he added.
