Modi rocks ‘cradle of culture & Hinduism’ but faces challenges from within

But his feelings may be because of his over-confidence. However, social activist and senior journalist Utkarsh Sinha points out that for Modi Varanasi, where people come to atone for their sins and seek Moksha (salvation) itself would be a big challenge to this strong-headed BJP leader.
The city dotted with 1,000 temples and numerous ghats is also known as the spiritual capital of India. 
Lenin Raghuvanshi, a Varanasi-based human rights activist (representing Peoples’ Vigilance Committee on Human Rights—PVCHR) said Modi forgets that the city, which was described by Mark Twain as a city older than history, a city older than tradition, was a “symbol of the spiritual and cultural pluralism of India” because it is also inhabited by followers of other religions faith (Muslims, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists), who consider the city as their spiritual center.
