ISKCON has hurt the emotion of devotees of Lord Jagannath by organizing the annual Rath Yatra on a different date

Bhubaneswar, Jan 30: The ISKCON has hurt the emotion of devotees of Lord Jagannath by organizing the annual Rath Yatra on a different date.

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness’s (ISKCON) Mumbai unit today organized Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath at Shivaji Park in Dadar going away from the traditions of Sri Jagannath Temple in Puri.

The festival is usually observed on the second day of ‘sukla pakshya’ in the month of ‘Asadha’ following the Hindu calendar.

Before this, the Ludhiana unit of ISKCON had planned to organize the annual Rath Yatra of Lord Jagannath on a different date last year which was strongly opposed by devotees of Lord Jagannath and the issue was raised in Odisha assembly also.

The nontraditional Rath Yatra celebration by ISKCON has irked people of Odisha and they may revolt against ISKCON for hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus.
