Haridwar: Increasing crowd at religious places due to reel, after ban in Chardham, ban in Haridwar also

Haridwar: The trend of making reels on social media has led to a massive surge in crowds at religious sites, making it difficult to maintain order.

Reel-making was earlier banned on the Char Dham Yatra, and now a similar restriction has been imposed in Haridwar.

The president of the Manasa Devi Temple and Akhil Bharatiya Akhada Parishad, Shri Mahant Ravindra Puri Maharaj, has banned reel-making on the temple premises.

Due to the increased crowds, hotels, dharamshalas, and shelters in Haridwar are fully packed.

Pilgrims are facing immense difficulties. Long lines are being formed at the ropeway, and there is an atmosphere of chaos.

The administration is trying to control the crowd, but tourists will have to be aware and follow the decorum of religious places.

Religious places are for darshan and pooja-paath, not for gaining popularity on social media.

It should also be kept in mind that religious sentiments should not be hurt in the craze of making reels.

Key Points:

Reel-making banned at Manasa Devi Temple in Haridwar
Ban follows similar restrictions imposed on the Char Dham Yatra
Surging crowds causing chaos and inconvenience for pilgrims
Religious places should be respected and not used for social media clout
Call to Action:

Tourists should be mindful of the sanctity of religious places and refrain from activities that disrupt the peace and tranquility.
Social media platforms should also take responsibility and discourage the creation of content that is disrespectful or harmful to religious sentiments.
Authorities should work together to ensure that religious sites remain places of spiritual solace and not platforms for social media trends.
