Sharing similar sentiments, Mujammil Fiza, an attendee told the news agency that he also celebrates Navratri with his Hindu friends. "People with an agenda do not want communities to come together and hold an event like this. In a country where people play politics in the name of religion, people like Yugal Kishor send out a message of love," he added.
Once viral, the post was flooded with comments praising the temple authorities.
