    Parsi families living near the 119-year-old Bai Maneckbai Fire Temple in Hyderabad are facing a continuous sewage overflow problem. They are unable to perform their religious rituals properly and are looking for a permanent solution to the issue.

    The temple officials have stated that for over 20 months, sewage water has been unable to pass through and instead flows back into the temple complex. This is because of an illegally laid sewage line by a local dhaba (Santosh Dhaba) that shares its compound wall with the temple. Approximately 45 families living nearby are suffering from this recurring issue, and the holy well in the Fire Temple complex, which is vital for their religious ceremonies, has become contaminated.

    The temple, built in 1904, has historical, cultural, and architectural significance. It is a peaceful place in the midst of busy Hyderabad. However, since March 2022, when a local dhaba expanded its building and blocked the sewage line with concrete, the temple has been severely affected. The sewage flows back into the temple complex due to the lack of an outlet, especially into the sacred well that is central to their rituals.

    The temple secretary, Russi Doctor, expressed frustration with the authorities. They have been complaining to the GHMC and HMWSSB officials but have only received false promises. The temporary solutions provided by HMWSSB workers are not enough, and they need a permanent resolution to the problem. The sewage water sometimes overflows into their houses, causing inconvenience and an unbearable foul smell.

    Local residents like Fenny and Fram Desai have also shared their concerns. They mentioned the impact on their daily lives and the need for action against the dhaba owner. The entire structure of the Fire Temple, including the residential colony for Zoroastrians, is being affected by the sewage overflow.

    In conclusion, the Parsi community in Hyderabad is facing difficulties due to sewage overflow near the Bai Maneckbai Fire Temple. They are demanding a permanent solution to the problem, as the temporary measures provided by the authorities have not been effective.
