    Was Kumbh Mela required during this Pandemic. For me this was only to defame Hinduism in front of minorities for the political benefits.

    This communist chinese virus is specially to close religious institutions, and to bring their one world communist government. Noticed all other celebrations 25 to 200 people, but religious congregations not even 10! Book of Revelation ch 6: 7,8 says quater of the earth population got killed due to sword, famine, pestilence and wild animals. Remove God, communist satan kills ( Satan is worried about population, brings virus or wars for depopulation). If God is there satan cannot kill, so people pray more or double your prayers and get saved from this evil corona.

    If alive, you can perform any function any time. Why these people are so concerned about their functions when life is uncertain due to this disease? Earlier dead bodies used to be tested for the disease but now a days many people attend the funerals to give respect to the dead neglecting their health condition. This is quite dangerous.

    Suresh, You practice your code and do not impose it on others. People are struggling to survive due to pandemic and no income, high time bhakthas like you understand gravity of situation! Instead of blind support to price hike calling it nation building! Political bigwigs has no knowledge of ground reality since they are leading a luxury life in air!
