HJS appeals to administration to impose complete ban on sale of PoP Ganesh idols

Panaji, Aug 12 (UNI) Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has appealed to various administrative officers to impose a complete ban on the sale of PoP Ganesh idols and to encourage idols made of Shadu clay in Goa.
According to a statement here on Sunday, HJS has handed over a memorandum in this regard to the North Goa Additional Collector Vikas Gaunekar, SG Collector, Dy Collector (incharge) of Mapusa Glen Madera and Dy Collector of Ponda Vishal Kundaiker.
The memorandum said,''This year, Sree Ganesh Chaturthi is going to be celebrated on September 13. In spite of ban on sale of PoP idols it is found that PoP idols are available for sale in some parts of the State before Ganesh festival. Also it is found that PoP idols with outer finishing of clay are also sold in the market. It has been observed that this idols float in water after immersion. We request you to impose a complete ban on the sale of PoP Ganesh idols strictly, also to encourage idols made of Shadu clay in order to enable the worshipper to obtain maximum spiritual benefit and blessings of the deity. PoP idols with outer finishing of clay should also be banned in the state.''
''The government can promote environment friendly Ganesh idols by encouraging sale of Ganesh idols made of Shadu clay. Presently, Shadu clay idols are not being made in large quantities due to high manufacturing cost. If the government provides subsidy for Shadu clay idols, it will facilitate purchase of the same by the common man. So also, providing Shadu clay at subsidized rates will help the idol makers (Murtikars),'' the memorandum said.
