Ram temple trust gives clean chit to trustees in land purchase

The Shri Ram Janambhoomi Teertha Kshetra Trust has given a clean chit to trustees involved in the purchase of land for the temple project.

Talking to reporters at a press conference  on Thursday 2n  July, Swami Govind Dev Giri, treasurer of the trust, said that he had studied all relevant documents in the past three days and found no discrepancy in the land deals.

He said that Swami Vishwaprasann Teerth and Kameshwar Chaupal had scrutinised all documents with him.

“All allegations levelled in the land purchase are false and baseless. If those who have levelled allegations can help us in getting cheaper land at the same location, the Trust would be obliged to them,” he said.

Swami Govind Dev Giri further said that the campaign against the Trust was unfortunate.

“However, I want to assure that the work on the Shri Ram temple will continue with full honesty and transparency,” he said.

The Swami’s statement now brings the curtain down on the controversy over the alleged land scam in Ayodhya.

Sikh leaders meet Minister  Kishan Reddy, seek anti-conversion law

A delegation of Sikh leaders met Minister of State (Home) G Kishan Reddy on Tuesday to discuss the alleged forced conversion and wedding of Sikh women in Jammu and Kashmir. The delegation comprising BJP spokesperson and former BJP MLA from Delhi’s Rajinder Nagar RP Singh, Jago Party president Manjit Singh GK and others submitted a memorandum seeking a strong anti-conversion law.

After meeting the Sikh leaders, Reddy said: “Forced conversion and wedding of Sikh girls in Kashmir is wrong and the delegation has submitted a memorandum. I will discuss this with the Union Home Minister regarding the action that needs to be taken.”

The meeting took place less than 24 hours after members of the Sikh community staged protests in parts of Jammu and Kashmir. The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) also took part in the demonstrations. Earlier, Union Home Minister Amit Shah

had also assured to meet these leaders to discuss the issue of religious conversion and possible action against those found guilty.

On Monday, a massive protest was staged at J&K House in New Delhi.

SC seeks original video, statement of Ramdev on his remarks on efficacy of allopathy

The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked Yoga guru Ramdev to place before it the original video and transcript of statements made by him which led to the registration of multiple FIRs against him in various states over his alleged remarks on efficacy of allopathy in treatment of COVID-19.

A bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana posted the hearing of Ramdev’s plea seeking clubbing of FIRs and transfer of cases to Delhi lodged against him for July 5, while asking him to place before it the whole video where the remarks were made by him.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi appearing for Ramdev said he will file the original video and transcript before the court, and sought listing of the case next on Monday.

The plea of Ramdev also sought a stay on the proceedings in multiple cases lodged against him and sought protection from coercive actions in FIRs lodged by Indian Medical Associations (IMA) Patna and Raipur branches and asked the court to transfer the FIRs to Delhi.

During the hearing, Rohatgi contended that Ramdev is a public figure and in a private event he propounds a view that Ayurveda is better than allopathy.
He said that Ramdev had clarified he has nothing against doctors. He is entitled to have a view whether Allopathy is better, Homeopathy is better or Ayurveda is better, Rohatgi argued.

Rohatgi further submitted that “all kinds of cases have been filed against Ramdev and as multiple FIRs have been filed in different parts of the country we ask the court to club them.”

The case has been posted further hearing tomorrow 5th of July.

Here is A news item from U S A

75 American Hindu temples and spiritual orgs write to Rutgers University expressing concerns regarding Audrey Truschke’s actions

A coalition of 75 American Hindu temples and spiritual organizations (including 17 from New Jersey) from across 20 states sent a letter to Rutgers University on 2nd July  expressing anguish and concerns regarding Professor Audrey Truschke’s actions and statements. The letter, coordinated by the Coalition of Hindus of North America (CoHNA), included some of the largest temples and spiritual organizations, whose memberships include tens of thousands of attendees from diverse sectarian, social, ethnic, and national backgrounds – including from the United States, Canada, Bharat, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Malaysia, and Singapore, among others.

The letter comes against the backdrop of an ongoing controversy at Rutgers University, where Professor Truschke has continued to make disparaging comments about Hindu texts, deities, and festivals while denouncing concerns from Hindu and non-Hindu students and the broader Hindu community as the work of the “Hindu Right.”

“We cannot help but feel intensely hurt and abused when a professor uses her authority and deliberately misinterprets Hindu sacred texts or slanders Hindu deities while rationalizing such behavior as ‘academic freedom,’” remarked the letter.

Here is a sad news for Sanskrit lovers

Sudharma Sanskrit daily editor Sampath Kumar passes away

K V Sampath Kumar (64), editor of ‘Sudharma’, the world’s only Sanskrit daily newspaper, passed away following cardiac arrest in Mysuru on Wednesday.


Sampath Kumar’s father Pandit Varadaraja Iyengar had launched ‘Sudharma’ in 1970. After Varadaraja Iyengar passed away, Sampath Kumar and his wife Jayalakshmi took over its mantle to ensure that it reached the readers.

He used advanced technology, made ‘Sudharma’ available online and launched the e-paper. The print edition of ‘Sudharma’ has nearly 4,000 readers from various Sanskrit universities and institutions across the country.

However, the digital edition of the newspaper has readers from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. The Union government announced the Padma Shri award to Sampath Kumar and his wife K S Jayalakshmi in 2020, under Literature and Education-Journalism category.

In a condolence message, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Sampath Kumar was an inspiring personality who worked tirelessly towards preserving and popularising Sanskrit, specially among youngsters. His passion and determination were inspiring, he added.
