Considering coronavirus pandemic, trust asked devotees to stay home
Only yesterday, the Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra put out a series of tweets asking devotees to not turn up in Ayodhya for the event.
"Shri Ram Janmbhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust urges all Shri Rambhakts not to get anxious to reach Ayodhya, and instead, watch the live broadcast of the Pujan on Doordarshan from their homes, (sic)" one of the tweets read.
Light diyas to participate in ceremony: Trust told devotees
In the tweets, the trust said it understands the emotions linked to the temple. "It will be their natural desire that they be physically present on the historic and auspicious occasion of Bhoomi Pujan," one tweet read.
So, devotees were asked to participate in the ceremony by lighting diyas at their homes in the evening. They were assured that they might participate in the construction.
"An effort will definitely be made in the future to provide an opportunity to all Shri Ram devotees to participate in the construction ceremony of Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir. Jai Shri Ram! (sic)" the final tweet read.
