UK PM Rishi Sunak And His Wife Akshata Murthy Perform Gau Pooja

Days after the Janmashtami holiday, Rishi Sunak, a British candidate for prime minister, and his wife Akshata Murthy, the daughter of Infosys founder NR Narayanamurthy, held a “Gau Pooja” (cow worship) in London.

As preparations are made for the pooja, Sunak, a finalist in the competition to become the next British prime minister after Boris Johnson, can be seen standing next to the cow.

The pair can be seen standing together as the priest proceeds to explain the entire procedure, holding a brass vessel in his hand. Additionally, Sunak and his wife continue the pooja and do the cow’s “aarti” as the video goes on. The Hindu cow, which is revered, was also painted and imprinted with hand prints in preparation for the event.

Social media users have been praising Sunak for showcasing Indian culture and tradition after seeing the viral film, which was shot in a cow enclosure in London.

Prior to the UK prime minister election, the Indian-origin MP of Richmond (Yorks), Rishi Sunak, and his wife visited the Bhaktivedanta Manor outside of London to celebrate Janmashtami and further ask Lord Krishna’s blessings.

The mansion also uploaded images of Sunak on its Instagram page and recalled his remarks about how the Bhagavad Gita gave him the perseverance to carry on in the face of adversity.
