Jammu, Nov 25: All Jandial Sabha (Regd) today announced cancellation of the annual congregation on ‘Kartik Purnima’ falling on Monday, 30th November, 2020 in view the prevailing deadly coronavirus in Jammu which has been taking toll of human lives every day and infecting hundreds of residents in Jammu.
This decision was announced by the President of the Sabha, Raman Jandial after intense consultation with the members of the Executive Committee, other prominent members of the biradari and district administration. Finally, the Committee headed by the Patron Justice K K Gupta (Retd) approved cancellation of the ‘Mail’ The Committee comprises I. C. Jandial ( Chairman), Rakesh Jandial (General Secretary), Mohan Lal Gupta, Subash Jandiyal, Adv Rattan Lal Gupta, O. P Gupta & K. B Jandial.
As per the guidelines of the Govt, no religious congregation except for a gathering of 200 shall be allowed in temples for fear of spread of coronavirus in the city. Thousands of members of Jandial biradari visit the devasthan of Baba Sehejnath ji on this annual ‘mail’ and it was not possible to allow and regulate such a huge gathering at the devasthan without violating the Govt instructions on this count and risking safety of the members of the biradari which is the prime consideration of the Sabha while taking this decision.
However, necessary religious rituals shall be performed at the Temple without any gathering.
