Maa Kamakhya never seeks animal sacrifice: Zubeen Garg
GUWAHATI : Zubeen advocating against the practice of sacrificing animals as a ritual said, “Stop animal sacrifice”.
Speaking on Bollywood actor Govinda’s visit to Kamakhya to offer sacrifice to the Goddess, Zubeen commented, “Instead of sacrificing animals, Govinda should have offered himself”. “Maa Kamakhya never seeks such sacrifice”, he added.
Residents of Nilachal Hill, where Kamakhya temple is located witnessed Zubeen Garg on Monday night during a musical event.
During this event, Zubeen made a request to the audience about ‘animal sacrifices’ and why one should protest against such practice.
However, a section of priests at the temple do not completely agree with the views expressed by Zubeen and requested him to concentrate on his profession and not get involved with religious sentiments.
The doloi of Kamakhya Temple Kabindra Sharma condemned Zubeen's statement and said that he sould not instigate people against religious rituals. Sharma added, "Zubeen is a singer and should stick to his profession. He has no knowledge about the significance of the holy rituals held at Kamakhya Temple. The rituals will continue the same way and Zubeen should not speak against it. These religious rituals have historical and mythological significances which the singer is not aware of".
Earlier, Zubeen had also made comments on Brahmins and the holy thread that marks their identity.
