purification by priests etc.......

"Priests 'purify' temple after foreigner enters premises"


The above article in times of india prompted me to write this. I'm surprised at our attitude towards this kind of incidents. I have often wondered as to why this is still being followed. Initially there were some talk of allowing non- hindus entry into temples in Kerala. But all of that seemed to have died out after some time.

Interestingly I see a lot of bloggers address this issues at various times. I believe that this practise need to be abolished as we progress as a religion and way of living.
