Jharkhand Congress MLA Irfan Ansari performs puja at temple, BJP MP demands his arrest

Jharkhand Congress MLA Irfan Ansari stoked controversy by performing puja at a temple.

Ansari performed puja at Deoghar's Baidyanath Dham temple, a sacred abode of Lord Shiva.

BJP MP Dr Nishikant Dubey demanded arrest of Ansari after he offered prayers at temple.

Dubey claimed that entry of non-Hindus is strictly not allowed at Baidyanath temple.

The MP from Godda demanded that Jharkhand's JMM-led govt order arrest of Ansari.

He also sought action against the deputy commissioner and SP of Deoghar.

Meanwhile, Ansari accused Dubey of playing dirty politics in the name of religion.

Ansari, MLA of Jamtara, had entered temple's sanctum sanctorum with his companions and performed puja.

Ansari claimed that he has been coming to the temple since childhood to seek blessings.
