Rajasthan govt denies Gayatri Mantra being played in labour rooms

[India], May 15 (ANI): Rajasthan Health Minister Raghu Sharma on Wednesday denied reports which said that Gayatri Mantra is mandatory to be played in labour rooms of medical centres. These are just rumours. I was informed about the issue earlier too. This was just to create a good environment in the labour room and to give relief to mothers delivering a child. This is not mandatory. Some people are relating it with religion and trying to make it an unnecessary issue, Sharma told ANI.He also said the state s health department will not recommend playing Gayatri Mantra as an official policy. This was not the government s decision. It was cleared before that government will not take any action that hurts someone s religious sentiments, he affirmed.Reports said that a group of Muslims in the state objected to the playing of Gayatri Mantra in labour rooms. They reportedly claimed that it was against Islam as a Muslim newborn should hear Azaan, not Gayatri Mantra . (ANI)
