Haindava Keralam - Amarnath Yatra Cut: VHP Warns of Nation-Wide Protests

Haindava Keralam - global community of dedicated Hindu Keralites with a peace mission

The VHP today threatened to launch country-wide agitation over Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra's decision to curtail the Amarnath yatra by a period of 15 days and asked him to reconsider his decision.

"We warn the Governor to immediately change his decision of curtailment in the Amarnath yatra period by 15 days and make an announcement of holding full 2-month long period yatra as per the traditional and religious calendar", VHP State President Dr Ramakant Dubey told reporters here today.

It may be recalled that Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) headed by the Governor as its Chairman had announced that the yatra will commence from June 29 instead of its commencement timing as per the religious calendar of Jaishta Purnima which falls on June 15.
