Holy mantras to be played in UP jails


Lucknow : Uttar Pradesh Jail Minister Dharamveer Prajapati has instructed all prison administrations to play recordings of ‘Maha Mrityunjay mantra’ and the ‘Gayatri mantra’ in the jails.

He said that this would ensure peace of mind for the prisoners.

The minister has said that recitation of these mantras would improve the atmosphere inside the jails and relieve the inmates of mental stress.

He said that this would help the inmates come out of jails as a reformed person.

The minister, in another order, has also banned plastic bottles and plastic goods in jails. He has asked the officials to find suitable and eco-friendly alternatives.— IANS


  1. This is another kind of Hindu Jihad and Torture for the inmates of the Jail. They want loudspeakers to be banned, but they want to install speakers in the jails. This is nothing but double standards by the corrupt government.

    Instead of recitation of the mantras, the jail inmates should be provided with all kinds of sports and games to make them fit and healthy.
