Those participating in the annual pilgrimage of Shravan month, dedicated to lord Shiva, should not “show off” during the festive season, he said in Gorakhpur. “Kanwar yatra is about to begin. Playing of vulgar film songs and DJs do not go with religious feelings. Also, it is improper to indulge in gambling and drinking alcohol after worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali,” he said.
