“We are warning to them to stay away from the ghats of Ganga, as it is not a picnic spot but a symbol of ‘Sanatan’ culture,” he said.

The VHP city secretary, Rajan Gupta, said that those who have no respect for Sanatan dharma should not come to the ghats and temples.

“We will welcome them if they show respect to Sanatan dharma,” he said.

The poster adds that “it is not a request but a warning”.

A large number of foreign tourists come to Varanasi and spend hours at the ghats, interacting with local people.

Right-wing activists had earlier objected to smoking by these tourists.
