PIL on Kashi Vishwanath temple dismissed
Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court Wednesday
dismissed a PIL seeking a direction to the administration of
the Kashi Vishwanath temple at Varanasi restraining it from
collecting fees from devotees for watching rituals.
A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice F I Rebello
and Justice Prakash Krishna dismissed the PIL filed by a
social organisation based in Varanasi.
The organisation pleaded for restraining the Kashi
Vishwanath Mandir Trust from collecting fees from pilgrims for
watching rituals like "Mangala Aarati" and "Rudra Abhishek".
The petitioners submitted that the Trust had fixed
different rates, ranging from Rs 101 to Rs 21001, for allowing
devotees to have a glimpse of the rituals.
