The incident took place on June 30, 2021, at the Hanuman Garhi Anjaneyar Temple in Ayodhya. In it, it is the custom of the devotees to offer Laddu as a request to the Anjaneyar temple. There are a number of shops selling laddu in the area within the temple. The quality of the laddu given to the Anjaneyars to create was not perfect, they were stale. Anjaneyar temple sadhus have told shopkeepers not to sell laddu as it looks like it is spoiled. At that time, the laddus were taken from the shops and dumped on the roads.

Laddu traders condemned this act of the Sadhus. It was reported that the particular Anjaneyar temple was closed for an hour and a half due to the incident and a protest was held in Ayodhya condemning the action of the Sadhus.

As per latestly, Mahant Gaddi Nasheen Premdas was granted permission to offer 'prasad' at the Hanuman Garhi temple on Wednesday, however, since the quality of Ladoos, which were offered as 'prasad' at the shrine, was not good, the priest refused to accept the offering. This angered the sadhus who started to throw the Ladoos on the roads and protest against the shop owners.

News verdict: Therefore, it is not the BJP workers who looted shops that did not donate to build the Ayodhya Ram Temple.
