Several Hindu temples from throughout the country have stepped forward to assist the country in combating the deadly coronavirus outbreak. Clearly, India happens to be one of the most affected countries with over 3 lakh deaths so far. The news is flooded with people gasping for oxygen and other resources for their survival. While many liberals around the country questioned the construction of temples rather than hospitals, shrines around India have made substantial contributions to combating the pandemic.


Following is a list of Temples and Hindus affiliated with significant Mathas and institutions that have stepped forward to help the country in these trying times. Despite their significant donations, they are rarely acknowledged, and as a result, the idea that Hindu temples do not pay enough to charity has spread.

Since the start of the pandemic, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) has been doing its share to assist people all around the world.

"So my decision to say yes to the film came from the director's vision."

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor was never really keen on exploring horror comedy but the story of 'Bhoot Police' pushed him to try his hand at the genre. The actor said, "It's not a genre that I was looking for, script-wise. When I heard it, when I read it, what worked for me was the camaraderie between the brothers, the friction and the banter between them. So I quite liked the friction, the brotherhood and at the same time the love-hate relationship and the witty tone."
