IN AN EXTREME CASE OF RELIGIOUS REVERANCE A DEVOTEE OFFERS TONGUE TO GODDESS DURGA; PRAY SO THAT THESE BLIND FAITH'S CAN BE ERASED FROM OUR COUNTRY
BAHRAICH: In an extreme case of religious reverence, a devotee offered his tongue to Goddess Durga in a temple here on Thursday.
Ramroop, a resident of Adharipurwa village under Risia police station, first offered prayers to the Goddess Durga in the temple of Samai Mata located in Chakia gram and then cut off his tongue with a knife and placed it at the feet of the Goddess. It was said that Ramroop did the crazy act stating that the Goddess had fulfilled a wish of his. Later, he was admitted to a primary health centre in an unconscious state. There is huge rush of devotees in the temples of Goddess Durga these days because of Navratri.
