After Corona gradually everything has started except for shrines of elderly people which are to date closed in the second wave. The department of Awqaf has mentioned that there is a loss of 57 crores to Awqaf due to this closure. This news indicates how much wealth potential is there in these religious centers. But if you see the state of these shrines, you will see that this income is not going back into these shrines. Why the money earned from religious sources is not being spent on religion. The budget is being made in the name of religion but still, the religious affairs are ruined. You can see in Moharram an average orator would have earned 1 crore in ten days. Is there any businessman or shop owner who can earn 1 crore in ten days? By just speaking jargon they are earning 1 crore, whereas for those who are superstars their incomes are much higher. All this money is coming out of religious passion but we need to find out where all this money is going.
