Jain saints appeal to Centre and Jharkhand State Government yo Declare 'Shri Sammed Shikharji' as Non-Violent & Vegetarian Holy Religious Jain Pilgrimage Site
New Delhi : Shri Sammed Shikhar Ji, also known as Parasnath, located in Giridih district of Jharkhand, is the biggest pilgrimage center of Jainism, from where 20 out of 24 Tirthankaras along with Koda-Kodi Mahamuniraj are Siddhalayas.
Rashtra Saint Mahayogi Shraman Shri 108 Viharsh Sagar Ji Gurudev while discussing with Media clearly said that Shri Sammed Shikharji is the eternal sacred area of Jains and today the entire society is united for its protection and security.
It is strongly appealed to the Government of Jharkhand and the Central Government that this pilgrimage should be declared non-violent, vegetarian, holy Jain pilgrimage, about which the Additional Secretary of the Government of Jharkhand had given an office memorandum on October 22, 2018, in which he wrote That Parasnath Sammed Shikharji Parvat has been a world famous holy and worshipable pilgrimage site for the followers of Jainism for centuries. Its specification information is bounded. By gazetting this, the government can benefit the Jain community. Shri Sammed Shikharji has absolutely no relation to the society in the form of tourism or in the form of Wild Life Century. The Jain community does not want any facility in the form of tourism to be started here. Many times in the past, tourists break their reports by wearing shoes on Tonks, while some tourists come here and eat meat etc. while sleeping, which adds to the number of this pilgrimage. The Jain society strongly opposes this kind of desecration and calls for declaring it as a sacred religious Jain pilgrimage area. Jain society can never accept the responsibility of tourists in exchange for the facilities here and its religious interest is never changed in any other form, it demands its parts.
