After Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, Rajasthan introduces a dress code for devotees. This is for the first time that a temple in Jaipur, state capital of Rajasthan has introduced a dress code for the devotees. The management officials at the Jharkhand Mahadev temple and Sadashiv Jyotirlinga Mahadev temple have urged the devotees to wear decent dresses and avoid wearing mini-skirts and distressed jeans.
The famous Jharkhand Mahadev temple has reportedly issued a notice on its gates, mentioning that shorts, bermuda, mini skirts, jeans and frocks were not permitted in the temple premises. The notice read that they hope all the devotees will cooperate in following Indian culture smoothly. As per reports, the Babbu Seth Memorial Trust president Jaiprakash Somani asserted that it was just an advisory. He urged all devotees to maintain discipline adding that there will be a Swayamsevak at the gate who will monitor if this advice were being followed.
In addition, the Sadashiv Jyotirlinga Mahadev temple has also placed a similar notice which states that devotees should wear traditional attire to ensure that the religious sentiments of people are not affected. Earlier in this week, a poster asking for the implementation of the dress code was placed at Udaipur’s oldest Shri Jagdish temple. The notice read that all devotees are informed that T-shirts, short jeans, bermuda, mini skirts, night suits are banned in Shri Jagdish Mandir premises. However, later the state’s Devasthan Department got these posters removed on Thursday mentioning that they were placed without permission.
Earlier, multiple temples in Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand had issued notices introducing a dress code for the devotees. Digambar Jain temples of Prayagraj had banned revealing dresses and western clothes for women. Furthermore, they also requested women and girls to cover their heads when they enter the temple premises.
Last month, three major temples that come under Mahanirvani Akhara in Uttarakhand also implemented dress codes for women and girls. Secretary of Mahanirvani Akhara and President of Akhil Bhartiya Akhara Parishad, Shrimahant Ravindra Puri asserted that women and girls cannot wear short clothes and enter the three temples that comes under Mahanirvani Akhar.
