Kailash Begwani, President of Hindu Utsav Samiti in Bhopal, has made a request to the district collector to allow only Hindus to the cultural activities to be held during Navaratri celebrations next month.

He appealed to the government, '' Only Hindus should attend Hindu festivals and appeal Collector to make Aadhar mandatory at Garba events.''

When asked about reasons for such demands, he said, ''Some families complained that girls who come for Garba face problems as people from other castes take entry by changing names.'' He added that the Hindu festivals should be limited to only the Hindu community and other communities should refrain from being a part.

Navaratri, a multi-day Hindu festival celebrated in the autumn every year, will begin on Thursday, 21st September 2017.
