Pune : Practices which have no scriptural sanction, like immersing idols in artificial tanks, donation of worshipped idols etc. are implemented under the guise of combating pollution. But this results in gross denigration of Shri Ganesh. So Hindu Janajagruti Samiti submitted a petition to the district administration seeking to end these practices, as well as to discourage the manufacture and sale of papier mache Ganesh idols (which have been termed as polluting by the NGT).
