Unchecked construction of roads for enhancing the tourism, and the pollution caused by the growing human presence are some of the major causes for the devastation of Uttarakhand.
The cause of this disaster were Hindus. Hindu pilgrims visit holy places in Uttarakhand like Badrinath, Kedarnath etc.. Every year lakhs of Hindus visit these places and the pollution caused by the growing human presence are some of the major causes for the devastation of Uttarakhand.
Because of the large number of Hindus from all over India and even from outside India visiting these places roads had to be built by damaging the mountains, various guest houses, shops and hotels were built in places where they should never have been built like along the rivers and on the mountains by digging the mountains which loosens the soil on the mountains.
There is no control over the number of Hindus visiting these places, the government should regulate the number of people visiting the holy places in Uttarakhand to control the pollution caused by growing human presence there.
Uttarakhand Chief Minister said there will be no Kedarnath yaatra for next 2 years, which is good so at lest for next 2 years that place will remain free from human pollution.
Many Hindu temples got damaged even many priests killed in floods. Hindus who were stuck in the floods regretted going to badrinath and kedarnath. They said they should never have come here.
Many Hindus lost their faith in their Gods, they said they cannot believe such a thing can happen to them on the way to holy shrines.
Many lost their family members, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who were on the trip to places like badrinath and kedarnath, later they lost their faith in grief, questioning how can this happen in the place of god.
The stone Gods couldn't even protect their statues and temples from floods how can they protect their people ?
Muslims have time and again told them on social media that their religion is a false, its a pagan religion and it would be good for them if they give up their false religion but they don't listen. It would have been good for them had they accepted the only true religion ie; Islam. Its sad to see that they are suffering just because they were following their religion.
