As Ganesh Utsav is underway, the WhatsApp is flooded with plenty of forwards, some are the greeting, while some shows unique art with the Ganesha. After NewsMobile brought out the truth behind the banana Ganpati. Another forward is making rounds which claim that Indians celebrating the festival in Spain asked the Church authority whether they can take the Ganesh idol from the way which is in front of the church and authorities asked them to bring Ganpati inside the church.
In Spain, few Indians who organised Ganesh festival have asked the Church authority whether they can take the Ganesh ji from the way which is in front of the church because this usually is the prayer time of the church. In reply, church authority has asked them to bring Ganpati Bappa for few mins inside the church so that both God can meet with each other. One of the glimpses of their meeting as below👇.
The Text was complimented with a video as well:
When NewsMobile decided to do a fact check on the video it was revealed that the claim in the forwarded message is true, but it happened in August 2017.
When we put the screengrabs of the video through the Google Reverse image search, we came across several articles dated August 2017.
An Article read: A Catholic priest in Spain was forced to resign on Aug 28, a day after he welcomed a Hindu procession into the cathedral.
As per reports, local Hindus, carrying out a Ganesh Chaturthi procession, originally wanted to leave some floral offerings at the entrance of the church as a gesture of respect to Christians.
However, Vicar General Father Juan Jose Mateos Castro opened the doors of the church for the idol Ganesha and the procession.
