Many Shivlings are found on every footpath of Delhi. Go go and worship. I could not bear the insult of our Mahadev Shiva ji like this again and again in front of me and I said some things in anger. If my words have hurt anyone’s religious sentiments, then I take back my words. It was never my intention to hurt anyone.
