Congress Govt.’s ploy to take over Hindu temples and religious institutions

Posted on 03 October, 2006
(Before independence, Hindus had to fight against aliens for protecting their religious places; but now they have to fight with their own countrymen. It shows that Hindus have no Saviour. The Government is in power because of Hindu votes and now the same Government is trying to attack Hindus religious places. Hindus must fight with such ‘Dharma-drohi’ (anti-religion) government. - Editor)

Mumbai: Maharashtra Government has already taken over ‘Sree Siddhivinayak Mandir’ Trust and ‘Saibaba Sansthan’ from Shirdi under a special law. Now the State Government is planning to pass a new law to satiate its thirst for gobbling up the money collected at all religious places of Hindus. The Government has formed a committee for the purpose. As a special case, it is planned to exclude mosques, madarssas and durgahs from the purview of this law and religious places and spiritual organizations of Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Parasis and Buddhists will be within its purview.

All the concerned belonging to various faiths have protested against this decision of the Government. All Hindu organizations are planning to fight against this decision. In this background, they are trying to come together and plan their strategy against the Govt. decision. If this law is passed, the Government would not have to pass separate law to take over a temple or religious organization but just by issuing a letter to that temple or organization, the Govt. can bring it under their control. Already the two Congress parties having common anti-Hindu policies are running the Government. Passing of the said law will make it simpler for them to destroy Hindu religion. There are about 4,50,000 temples and religious trusts. Only in Mumbai, there are 4271 religious trusts belonging to Hindus, Jain and Sikh religions and Parasis have 1219 and Christians have 314 religious Trusts.

In January 2005, the State Government made the excuse of stampede that occurred at Mandhardevi fair to pass the law to take over temple trust for better administration and management of funds. But in fact, even after taking over Sree Soddhivinayak Trust, many malpractices have been unearthed. Even the followers of Jain have warned the government that if Govt. goes on with passing the law, they will come on the roads and fight.

Campaign against nationalization of temples will be started – HJS

Although the Government was responsible for the stampede at Mandhare, it is not only shirking from its responsibility but it has put restrictions on certain rituals and now hatching a plot to take over all temples. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) will always oppose this move of the government. HJS has already started agitation against the malpractices in managing Sree Siddhivinayak temple Trust. HJS will fight against passing of this act with the help of all Hindu organizations and Trustees, explained Shri. Ramesh Shinde, the spokesperson of HJS for the State of Maharashtra.
