Hindu holy men boycott religious festival in which millions wash away sins in river, guaranteeing immortality, saying it was too polluted.
Devotees believe the holy waters wash away sins, liberate them from a continuous cycle of birth and reincarnation and guarantee immortality.

Indian holy men or sadhus threatened Monday to boycott a major religious festival, in which millions of people wash away sins in the Ganges river, saying it was too polluted. Thousands of sadhus in their trademark saffron-coloured clothes held protests for a second day Monday, demanding that the river be cleaned up before the next auspicious bathing day on Sunday, a Hindu leader said.

"The water in (the) river is so dirty that no one can take a dip. It is dark red whereas the Ganges used to be bluish green," said Shankaracharya Vasudvanand Saraswati, who heads the main Hindu monastery in the holy city of Allahabad, where the festival is taking place.
