Spiritual group to burn obscene literature

Haridwar, March 10 (IANS) A spiritual group based here will make a bonfire of obscene pictures and literature this Holi all over the country.

The All World Gayatri Pariwar said in a statement on Thursday that it will observe Holi festival as an anti-vulgarity day.

On that day, it will burn “filthy material” such as books, posters and pictures, said the group’s head, Pranav Pandya.

“This is aimed at eradicating vulgarity and inculcating ‘sansakr’ (cultural values) among youths and students,” he said.

The programme on Holi day will be observed at 1,459 places across the country, he said.

“All we see, good or bad, gets registered in our sub-conscious mind and contributes to the shaping up of our personality,” Pandya said in the statement.

“So the quality of what we see to a large extent determines the quality of how we think. Hence, seeing good is as important as doing good,” he said.
