    Religious personalities should have intervened and guided people before involving police.

    This is a clear attempt to divide BJP vote bank. Purely clandestine. Politics.

    No religious minded person will go out of her or his way to disturb the traditional way of worships. To change the system by demanding just to suit you is just anarchism. I think she is a Congress stooge and she is politicising all this to get notice. Where was she when Congress/ NCP were ruling the state? She is just looking for publicity and nothing else.

    please investigate from where she is getting money to mobilize people. Also, time chosen at the time of high alert every where. What is she going to achieve other than getting cheap pority, causing public disorder and safety concern.
