Imphal, Oct 7,
A civil body called Kangla Kanba Lup has appealed the government of Manipur to stop religious encroachment being underway inside Kangla.
The statement said that Kangla was the first dry spot that emerged out of an immense body of water and where the Sanamahi religion was originated. However, the ongoing construction of the so called the Ras Leela Dance Hall within the sacred Kangla has created a huge apprehension among the followers of Sanamahi. The Ras Leela dance portrays the lord Krishna and his gopies which is of Hindu origin. Hence, erecting such a dance hall within the boundaries of the sacred Kangla is definitely a religious encroachment to the Sanamahi religion.
