The Right Wing activists are always on the news to ban one or the other thing . Now they want to ban Kamasutra books sold at Khajuraho Temple which is a land of Kamasutra and also a UNESCO world heritage site in Madhya Pradesh’s Chattarpur district.
Bajrang Dal activists approached the sub – divisional officer of police,Khajuraho,Israr Mansouri to ban all the kamasutra books and posters which are being sold inside the temple. They have submitted a memorandum of their demands to the police under the leader ship of,Jyoti Agarwal president of the Khajuraho unit. They alleged it was against the Indian Culture. So the people in this generation know culture better than the ancient people ? Thoughts?
The Temple is famous worldwide for the graceful erotic sculptures on its outer walls.
Jyoti Agarwal said that “Such things are readily available inside the temple premises under the very nose of ASI and tourism department officials. Such things affect the image of Indian culture and traditions in the eyes of the foreigners. Whatever has been depicted can’t be allowed to happen here now. What sort of moral values are we passing on to our younger generation?”
Israr Mansouri police has spoke about the issue “We will consult officials of Archaeological Survey of India and tourism department after which further action will be taken.”
When asked why she was not opposed to the erotic sculptures on the temple walls, Agarwal said such sculptures were built in ancient times and there was no need to advertise them now.
Jyoti Agarwal further added that there is a Lord Shiva temple inside and how can you allow Kamasutra to be sold in the sacred premises.
