A controversy erupted over a ‘mural’ showing Lord Hanuman bowing down to Sahajanand Swami of the Swami Narayan sect, in Shree Kashtabhanjan Hanuman temple at Salangpur in Gujarat.
Strongly opposing the depiction, Mahant and Maha Madleshwar of Bhimnath Mahadev temple, Ashutosh Giri Bapu called for the immediate removal of the “mural” from the temple premises. 
In view of the objection to the mural, 100 saints will hold a meeting in Libdi in the upcoming days, and a gathering of 3000 saints is further planned in the Bhimnath temple.
The Mahant said, “We expect the ‘Swaminarayan sect’ to use proper depictions, otherwise we know how to do it very well.”
He further said if needed 5000 saints and sages would gather in the temple, and indulge in activities, including fasting.
The temple comes under the Vadtal Gadi of the Swaminarayan sect
