Indian Zoroastrians Say Mumbai Metro Will Desecrate Fire temples

Published on October 13, 2017 by fahmidah

Thousands of Indian Parsis have called for the route of Mumbai s new multi-billion-dollar metro to be changed so trains and commuters don t pass under fire temples where the Zoroastrians worship.

More than 7,000 people have signed an online petition saying that building tunnels under two temples, which contain “holy fire”, would desecrate their sanctity, forcing nature to exact its revenge.

It claims that part of a tunnel will pass directly below the “Sanctum Sanctorum where the holy fire is enthroned” of the Wadia temple in the south of India s commercial capital.
