The Jain, Gujarati and Sindhi communities in Bhopal have decided to prohibit pre-wedding photoshoots along with inviting choreographers for Sangeet ceremony. According to them, the pre-wedding photoshoot is a new type of “pollution” bedevilling the society while the increasing trend of employing a choreographer for the Sangeet ceremony in the name of modernisation is rapidly destroying the Indian culture and tradition.

According to the reports, the decision was taken after Munishree Prasad Sagar Maharaj, a Digambar Jain saint who is doing Chaturmas in Bhopal, instructed the Digambar Jain Panchayat Committee to take a tough stand against the practice of pre-wedding shoots. He even advocated ostracisation of people from the community who support the pre-wedding shoots.

A similar decision was taken by the Gujarati community and Sindhi Central Panchayat Committee. The working committees of both the communities will soon issue guidelines directing the members to ban pre-wedding shoots and choreographers in Sangeet ceremony.

Munishree Prasad Sagar Maharaj claims that pre-wedding photoshoot is incompatible with their culture. He has further alleged that the Sangeet ceremony is a new kind of profligacy that has started in the marriage ceremony. Along with this, he has also stated that the choreographers indulge in vulgar activities with the females on the pretext of teaching them dance moves. He has suggested parents to refrain their sons and daughters from participating the pre-wedding shoots.
