😠 @CMOGuj under ur governance, miscreants from the #Hindu community are attacking #Jain Tirths continously destroying our ancient heritage @ Palitana Tirth #Gujarat

@sanghaviharsh HM of Gujarat is a Jain still no FIR registered by @GujaratPolice! Why??

#Thread 👇🏼 On 26.11.22, miscreants damaged the ancient footprints of Tirthankar Adinath bhagvaan at Rohishala, Palitana Tirth, #Gujarat.

FIR was registered only on 5.12.22. @GujaratPolice has not caught the criminals & due to their non action, these infringe elements repeat offence.
