Why holy things are polluted here?

It is weird here. Temples that are sacred to us are dirty here. People throw whatever they want there in the compound. Rivers that are considered to be holy are polluted to an extent that we can not put our hand in it. Is it not sad that people don't care about it? How ill-mannered the people are? I have seen people throwing garbage in the river. You cannot ask them not to do it because you cannot argue with the people. The administration should take some action against them. Things are not getting better here.

There are many Beautiful places and Rivers in India, we can't say every river is polluted.It happens only in the place where illiterate people lives.

I wouldn't tell anyone, adult or child, not to do something. You'd probably get bashed. People are pretty good here but some dump rubbish anywhere. Of course, we don't have such a big population as you do there.

I remember when thieves took the copper from our church, and I wondered if they really considered what stealing from a place of worship meant. And I am really sorry to hear of the trouble you have. I read about the pollution your rivers that are considered holy, experience. It’s pretty shocking.

@sjvg1976 It is because we don't have true faith on our dharma.We don't respect our own faith.We are unaware of the greatness of our dharma.( Ours is a dharma ;not. a religion.)

That's sad. Can't your government do something about it? I perceive India as a place of beauty, serenity, sacredness, and cleanliness.

It is indeed disheartening to witness the lack of respect for sacred places and the pollution of holy rivers. It is important for both individuals and the administration to take responsibility and address these issues to ensure a cleaner and more respectful environment.

It is sad to see people considering the rivers as "open sewers". Your government should do something to keep those holy places clean.

That is too bad. Things are not much better in the US. Many places are piled with garbage and it seems many just don't care any more. Thankfully things are good in my area. Some things are out of our control in life.
