Q. Alcohol shops can be open, but religious places can’t. Is it because temples don’t generate any earnings for the state?

 

A. Legit deduction by you. Even temples have economic imperatives and the devotees make that engine work through contribution and through fulfilment of mental equanimity, however, temporary it may be. Coming to opening of certain type of shops by the government, the dominant logic is to make the wheels of economy get activated. That would be spirit-ualism of a different kind.
