Handling of 'cobra' at J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti's House- an bad omen, claims Jammu cleric

Early Times Report

Jammu Apr 21: As the news of a deadly cobra recently spotted at J&K Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti's residence in Jammu city has gone viral, many religious clerics/ priests have opined differently on the issue some even had termed the forcibly relocation of snake as bad omen for her government, which suddenly had run into troubled waters.
According to Hindu Mythology, the snakes (cobra) are believed to be the custodian of hidden treasures and their appearances like near a throne is believed to bring more of good fortune, however mishandling of snake may bring troubles for the person.
As the video of cobra's presence at CM's residence went viral, it has become a talk of town and many clerics aired their opinions over the issue.
Some religious clerics observed that that the "wrong handling" of such a "sensitive incident" brings misfortune as the happenings switched to have happened at the CM House.
Babaji Rakesh Kumar Heer, a revered priest from Rajouri district, who finds scores of disciples coming to him even from Pakistan believes that the presence of cobra at the CM House shouldn't have been handled the way it was done.
Talking to a selective media persons, Cleric Baba Heerji, head priest Shiv Shankar Mandir Rajouri, claims there are many aspects related to spotting a snake at the CM House. Babaji, however, clarified that he is not a tantric but a staunch devout (bhakta) of Lord Shiva who adorns the King of Serpents.
"This snake should not have been forcibly taken away because it amounts to bad omen (Appshagun). Instead it should have been let go away of its own because that brings good fortune," Babaji said.
He added that, traditionally, priests are called to tackle such a situation. "Had they (government) called someone like religious cleric, who would have performed some rituals and let it go away of its own."
Moreover, the cleric further maintained that it also needs to be verified if the snake had entered the CM House or it was suddenly spotted there.
"If it was spotted there all of sudden then again it's a bad omen (Appshagun) whereas if it was seen sneaking into the premises through general entry then it's a very good sign."
With the cobra been forcibly whisked away by wildlife authorities, the general notion among religious minded people is that a bad omen has already arrived for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance as the coalition partners have suddenly developed strained relations.
Call it a coincidence or the general trend as the leaders of both parties suddenly have been exchanging heated arguments.
Here it needs to mention that on April 20, PDP Vice-President Sartaj Madni took senior BJP leader and Cabinet minister Chander Parkash Ganga head on for his "disgusting utterances".
As already reported, on April 18, panic had gripped Mehbooba's Wazarat Road residence when a deadly cobra was spotted there in the morning hours sending the security apparatus to tizzy at the highly fortified villa.
At around 9:00 AM on the fateful day when Mehbooba was about to leave for her office, she was asked to be confined to her room as a "safety measure" till the snake was caught from outside.
As per official sources, the wildlife officials took away the snake and set it free at Jammu zoo. However, sensing the gravity of the incident, the government has also initiated an inquiry to probe how come the venomous cobra sneaked into the fortified premises.
