Nahru Khan who installed the sensor said, "I felt that there should be a way for people to able to ring the bell during the pandemic without touching it, so I installed this sensor."
A devotee Riya said, "It is very helpful during the pandemic. It is important to ring the bell when we pray."
Another devotee said, "It is necessary for devotees to ring the bell so as to reach God. This type of sensor made it easy for us to ring the bell without touching it. It is very useful during the pandemic."
