After name change, activists want holy city tag for Gurgaon | Gurgaon News - Times of India

Gurgaon ko sanskari banane ki koshish kee jaa rahi hai. Nonsense. Every city in the country has temples. This does not mean that every city should get the holy status.

A city-based activist has approached the state government, requesting that the Millennium City be declared a 'holy city' as the tag will help in closing down meat shops.
She told TOI, "It is heart-breaking to see butcher shops near temples in Old Gurgaon. These will have to be closed down, once the city get its holy status. The city deserves the tag, considering there are many temples in this part of India."
The application points to beliefs that the city is based around the Sheetla Mata temple which is dedicated to the wife of Guru Dronacharya, Kripi or Kirpai.
