I recently asked a question, which was promptly closed as off topic, citing:
This question does not appear to be about Hindu religion, within the scope defined in the help center
The question falls in the following category according to the help center:
"Questions about Hindu practices."
I also made a comment supporting this:
Even though you may consider this question to be falling under superstition, but you can't deny that 'odd' features prominently in daily hindu rituals. If no specific references are found in any of the scriptures, 'no' would be a simple answer
Hence I was just looking for 'any' references from the Hindu scriptures. If there are none, No is the answer. Closing the question is not the solution.
I would like to mention that I am not new to the SE community, and I always read the help center of a community that I join, before asking a question. Also I am aware of the cascading effect of close votes- when a high rep user votes to close a question, others blindly follow.
