Justice Katju: Why I support the Jains’ protest over Jharkhand pilgrimage site

These days a protest is going on in many places in India by the Jain community, who comprise only 0.4% of the Indian population of 1400 million over the Jharkhand State Government’s decision to declare a Jain pilgrimage site, the Sammed Shikharji in the Giridih district in the state of Jharkhand, as a tourist spot. The Jains believe that this decision will defile the pilgrimage site.
