At a time when religious places have been allowed to open, a question about social distancing and adhering to safety norms while worshipping still lingers. And while the authorities are doing all, from covering bells to timely saitizing the religious places, more of the same is welcomed.
So adding to the kitty of ensuring contactless worshipping, Mandsaur Pashupatinath temple, authorities have installed a sensor in temple bell so that it can be rung without touching it.
And interestingly, the bell has been developed by a Muslim man named Nehru Khan.
“When I saw that ‘azaan’ was allowed in mosques after the coronavirus lockdown was relaxed and religious places were opened for devotees, I thought that people should also be allowed to ring bells in temples,” 62-year-old Nahru Khan Mev, the man behind the sensor-operated bell told PTI on Sunday.
The bell works on proximity sensor (able to detect the presence of nearby objects without physical contact), he added. The bell had been prepared at Khan’s factory at a cost of Rs. 6,000. And people lauded his efforts.
