To, CMO GUJARAT VIJAY RUPANI

and PM NARENDRA MODI

Shri Shatrunjay Giriraj is the most sacred place of Jains across the world and has a special place in the heart of every Jain. The news that the Gujarat government will be organizing a race (Spardha) at Shatrunjay has deeply hurt us as it will lead to many issues that will damage the integrity and sacredness of the Shatrunjay tirth.

Further, Shatrunjay tirth is an epitome of faith and religious beliefs for us Jains and not just another mountain or a place for such activities. We follow many religious rules when climbing the Shatrunjay tirth, which would never be followed during the race and the race would lead to things that would greatly contradict the rules and beliefs we have for this Tirth.

So it’s our deepest request to stop the organising of this race at Shri Shatrunjay Palitana tirth and respect the feeling of the Jain community that has been extremely hurt and shocked by this decision of the Gujarat government. We have always been responsible law-abiding citizens of the state and this is the least we can expect from the state (to not hurt our religious beliefs by organising this race at Shatrunjay).
