As the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya gears up for its Pran Pratishtha ceremony on January 22, a new threat has emerged. Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the excitement by targeting unsuspecting devotees with a deceptive WhatsApp scam.

According to reports, some devotees are receiving messages offering a fake VIP entry to the Ram Mandir event. The message instructs users to download an APK file to secure their VIP access. However, experts suspect that this file may contain spyware or malware, putting users at risk of data theft.

The message lures recipients with a congratulatory note: “You are getting VIP access at Ram Mandir’s inauguration on January 22; download the VIP Pass by installing the application.” It’s important to note that neither the government nor the Ram Mandir Trust issues VIP invites in exchange for downloading apps.

Only individuals possessing valid invitations or engaged in official government duties will be allowed to enter Ayodhya on January 22. According to a Times of India report, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has instructed authorities to encourage local hotels to cancel advance bookings as much as possible and prioritize those invited by the trust.

In addition to the WhatsApp scam, there are reports of websites claiming to offer free prasad from the Ayodhya Ram Mandir. These sites ask devotees to cover shipping charges, but their authenticity is unconfirmed. Devotees are advised to be cautious online and only interact with trusted websites.

As the nation eagerly awaits the Ram Mandir ceremony, devotees are reminded to stay vigilant online and avoid falling for scams that exploit the significance of this sacred event.
