Hindu Temple Stampedes Claimed 700 Lives In 8 Years , India

NEW DELHI, INDIA, : Stampedes at temples and other religious places in India have claimed nearly 700 lives in the past eight years. At least 63 people were killed and 15 injured recently when a gate at Kripalu Maharaj’s ashram at Pratapgarh in Uttar Pradesh collapsed during distribution of food on the occasion of a ritual, for which nearly 10,000 people had converged.

Stampedes, poor infrastructure and terrorism scares are the main causes behind these sad numbers.
