Pilgrimage Tax at Shani Shinganapur Temple Maharashtra

published on October 9, 2013

I had recently gone on a pilgrimage to Shani Shinganapur, which is located in Maharashtra State, near to Shirdi. I was mortified to see a Check Post, which carried a big sign post stating that the Ahmednagar Muncipality has decided to charge a Pilgrim Tax on every pilgrim going to Shani Shinganapur Temple. Are we living in a secular state or are we just proclaiming it to fool the whole world ? Is this not naked discrimination and reminiscent of Mughal rule when Jizya or Pilgrim Tax was imposed on all Hindus by the foreign rulers ?

It is amazing that in a so called socially advanced State of Maharashtra, such discrimination is going on against the Hindus. What is Hindu organisations doing to demolish this Checkpost of injustice and tyranny against poor Hindu pilgrims. Can somebody in Maharashtra move a PIL in High Court to legally stop this unjust and criminal tax.
