The Pashupati Area Development Trust (PADT) has clarified that it has not given any permission to build replica of Pashupatinath Temple at Utterakhand of India. “There is no truth in the news report that Pashupatinath Temple is being built in Utterakhand of India and the Trust’s attention has been drawn towards this false news report,” said Dr Ghanashyam Khatiwada, executive director of PADT in a statement issued on Saturday.

“We object to such a false news report that appeared in a section of media,” he told this weekly.

Our attention has been drawn towards the fictitious news published in a section of Nepalese and Indian media that the PADT has given permission to construct a replica of Pashupatinath in India, he made it clear.

“Pashupati is the centre of faith for all the Hindus and such a false news report published in the media has given a blow to the entire Hindu community, who has deep faith in Pashupat Darshan,” points out the statement. The Trust “has not taken any decision to provide any kind of permission or approval to build the replica of Pashuptainath Temple in India,” the Trusts has said.
