Hindu Law Board demands subsidy for Ram Sethu pilgrimage

September 15, 2007 20:46 IST

The Hindu Personal Law Board has approached the Allahabad High Court to seek subsidised rates for the pilgrims visiting the Ram Setu or Adam's Bridge from the Centre.

A public interest litigation, filed in the registry of the court's Lucknow bench by board president Ashok Pandey, quotes extensively from the Ramcharitmanas by Goswami Tulsidas. The PIL further pleads that "Lord Ram himself asked his disciples to make a pilgrimage to the Setu."
