New Delhi: The National Organization of Priests says the Coronavirus is a demon and can only be destroyed by divine powers. The Akhila Bharatiya Tirtha Purohit Mahasabha said this in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding the opening of Temples and Pilgrims to help fight the disease. Mahesh Pathak, the national president of the organization, says the openings of Temples and Pilgrims could pose no danger to the Coronavirus.
The letter demanded a special financial package for clergy as the closure of the Temples caused a loss of income. The letter also states that temples can be opened under certain restrictions.
The Coronavirus is a demon that divine powers only can kill. With the closing of the temples, the distance between God and the believers increased. He added that it is certain that God can save the devotees through united prayer.
