Speaker Biswa Bandhu Sen urges people to revive their religious respect on ‘Mahalaya’


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, October 14:   Dharmanagar MLA and State Legislative Assembly Speaker Biswa Bandhu Sen inaugurated a grand arrival festival at Kalibari Road on Saturday, the day of Mahalaya. The festival, organized by Dharmanagar Municipal Council, witnessed the participation of thousands of people who came to enjoy the cultural and religious programs.

Sen expressed his surprise at the huge gathering and said that he had not expected such a turnout. He said that he would take bigger measures on a larger scale in the future. He also addressed the crowd and advised them to enliven their minds towards respect for their religion and culture.

He said that the Hindu Bengalis were losing their attachment to their religion day by day and were lagging behind other regions of India in terms of religious respect. He said that he observed a lack of devotion among the people who attended the four-day Durga Puja at Kalibari. He also criticized the practice of playing DJ music on the 10th day of the Puja, which he said was harmful for elderly and pregnant mothers. He requested the administration to ban DJ music and encourage other forms of entertainment.

He further said that Durga Puja was a large structure and a large pandal, which required sacrifices after the Puja. However, he lamented that after Kali Puja, Hanuman Puja or Vishwakarma Puja, idols were left under trees. He appealed to the people to reclaim their right to their religion and to speak out against the irreligiousness that they were cultivating in the name of culture.

He said that India still believed in Vedic or Sanatan Dharma and that was the culture of Indians. He said that Hindu Bengalis were forgetting their own culture and enjoying the culture of others. He urged the people to give importance to Indian culture and Vedic culture.

The festival was also attended by Chairman Pradyot Dey Sarkar, philanthropist Shyamal Kanti Nath and prominent and dignified people of Dharmanagar. They enjoyed the various cultural and religious programs that were held at the festival.
