As the Covid-19 pandemic continues and people still are restricted from normal travel routines, the Amarnath devotees were provided a relief by J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha as he on Tuesday launched various online services of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board which will provide some semblance of personal experience.
For millions of devotees who are unable to visit the Holy Cave of Shri Amarnath shrine this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Shrine Board has brought Darshan, Hawan, and Prasad facility under the virtual mode.
The devotees can book their Puja, Hawan, and Prasad online, and priests at the holy cave will offer it in the devotee’s name. Prasad will be subsequently delivered at doorsteps of the devotees.
With the launch of new online services of Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board, (SASB) the devotees of Lord Shiva from across the world can perform online virtual Puja and Hawan at the Holy Cave. observed the Lt Governor.

Youth in Kathua Stage Protest Against SHO, Kathua, Demands Termination
Yesterday a Councillor got engaged with a JK Police Officer. The Councillor has reached to review a protest by the Shiv Nagar, Kathua, over the power cuts. The protestors have blocked the National Highway. The police officer asked the protestors to stage their protest off the road and not block the Highway. But, on numerous requests by the police, the protestors didn’t leave the road then the police started dragging the protestors from the road.
On Saturday, the youngsters of Kathua protested against Kathua Police and blocked the road. According to the youngsters, the SHO has misbehaved with the Councillor. A police party tried to resolve the matter, but the protestors didn’t agree. The Councillor demanded that the SHO apologize for his actions in front of the media or be suspended.
While talking to the media, a Sarpanch said, “yesterday’s incident was very shameful. The people elected the Councillor, and the SHO dragged him like an offender. The locals were protesting only to demand their rights. They were not doing anything illegal. We criticize the incident and demand that the SHO should be suspended. If he treats the Councillor this way, then how he treats the common public”.
