Madras HC slams HRCE for colluding with individuals in illegally occupying temple properties

Madras High Court expressed its displeasure over HRCE officials’ negligent attitude in dealing with temple properties. It observed that officials appear to be colluding with the individuals who use temple properties and allow corruption.

LiveLaw reported that while dealing with a case of occupying a property of Maahaliamman temple in Coimbatore, the court slammed the HRCE officials for not acting in the interest of the temples and devotees. Having leased the property in 1960, the individual continued to use it without paying the raised rent amount for 55 years even after the contract ended in 1965. When the HRCE department sent a notice of eviction, the individual went to court contesting that he was not informed of the hike and that his position as the leaseholder is valid.

He pleaded that as he had paid the arrears he should be allowed to continue to use the property. However the court observed that “mere payment of arrears of rent would not confer any right to claim leasehold rights“. If the lessee wants to continue the contract, HRCE commissioner has to approve the extension. But no documents to that effect were found. So concluding the contention as invalid the court dismissed the petition.

While doing so the court slammed the HINDU RELIGIOUS AND CHARITABLE ENDOWNMENT officials of colluding with the individuals in misusing temple properties and accused them of corruption. Expressing dissatisfaction over the negligence of authorities, the court reminded them of its role as the “custodian of the minor deity”. 

Observing that when it comes to temple properties, in numerous cases, lessees are in possession of the properties without any legal standing, the court directed the HRCE department to initiate proceedings to lease them through Open Public Auction.

It said “The High Court has to interfere in such circumstances even in the absence of initiation of action by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department in certain circumstances or inaction by the Authorities due to the active or passive collusion with the Private Parties“.

There have been many cases of temple properties being occupied illegally both by Hindus and non-Hindus without paying rent. In Ramanathapuram and Thanjavur temple properties worth hundreds of crores were encroached by Muslims with HRCE officials turning a blind eye even after court interference. Many other temple properties are encroached by missionaries as well and in one case a corrupt HRCE official willfully gave away temple land to build a church.

In one case the government itself had tried to distribute temple land to people for free through the revenue department. The fact that Srirangam Ranganatha swamy temple which had 330 acre land in 1886 now only has 24 acre should make Hindus understand the gravity of the issue.


Hindu party IMK demands subsidy for Sabarimala pilgrimage from Tamil Nadu government

Indu Makkal Katchi(IMK) has demanded the Tamil Nadu government to provide subsidy for Sabarimala pilgrimage. The party has requested the government to help poor Ayyappa devotees by distributing Rs.6000 as subsidy for their pilgrimage to Sabarimala similar to how Christians and Muslims are given subsidy for Jerusalem and Haj pilgrimage.

IMK chief Arjun Sampath has put forth some demands that would help Ayyappa devotees, a large part of whom are Tamils. He has requested the TN government to arrange free bus transportation, free accommodation and food in Sabarimala and to seek the centre to waive off toll charges for the pilgrims.

The party has also organised an event in which petitions to waive off toll charges will be given to toll gate officials and then sent to the Prime Minister and TN Highways Department.

TAMIL NADU government has been providing subsidies for Haj and Jerusalem pilgrimages for many years now. The late CM J Jayalalithaa announced in 2012 that Rs.40,000 subsidy will be provided for Hindus who go on pilgrimage to Mansarovar and Muktinath. But the pilgrims were selected by HRCE which leads one to believe that the scheme was also sponsored by the HRCE department.

While only 500 Hindus were given subsidy nearly 4000 Muslims received Haj subsidy in 2008. The outgoing CM Edappadi Palanisamy had promised to increase the number of Jerusalem pilgrims from 500 to 10,000 and had also increased the subsidy from Rs.20,000 to Rs.37,000.

Hindus who form the majority and have given up control of temples to the government receive less amount of subsidy than Christians and Muslims who control their places of worship and yet receive subsidy from the secular state.

So IMK’s demand to provide subsidy for Ayyappa devotees to aid their pilgrimage to Sabarimala has found support from many quarters.


Three more temples vandalized, murtis desecrated in Bangladesh

‘Unidentified’ people went on a rampage and vandalized three temples and desecrated the temple deities in Delduar upazila, Tangail district, Bangladesh early on November 16..

Sharbajanin Kali Mandir at Pirojpur, Shitola Mandir at Binnayuri and another temple at the residence of one Ajit Das were vandalized during the attacks, confirmed Delduar police Officer-in-Charge Sajjad Hossain.

The attackers beheaded the murtis at the temples and dumped the head of the Goddess Shitola murti in a nearby paddy field. Locals learnt about the incident in the morning and called the police. 

Violence against Bangladeshi Hindus has become so routine and commonplace that incidents like this one from Tangail hardly elicit any response from the global community. Newspapers in Western countries never report these incidents.


Security tightened in Mathura ahead of Babri mosque demolition anniversary

The Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha has announced that it will install an idol of Lord Krishna at the deity’s actual birthplace , which it claims is in the mosque close to a prominent temple in Mathura in Uttar Pradesh.

Hindu Mahasabha leader Rajyashri Choudhary said the idol will be installed after a maha jalabhishek on December 6 to purify the place.

The date picked by the right-wing organisation marks the demolition in 1992 of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya, the site of a temple-mosque dispute.

The Mahasabha threat to perform the ritual inside the Shahi Idgah comes at a time when the local courts are hearing a series of petitions seeking the removal” of the 17th century mosque, close to the Katra Keshav Dev temple.

Hindu Mahasabha leader Rajyashri Choudhary, however, denied there was any link between the 1992 event and organisation’s Mathura plan.

Security has been tightened in Mathura to avoid any untoward incident ahead of December 6, the date on which the Babri mosque was demolished in Ayodhya in 1992, officials said on Saturday.

Four right-wing groups, the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, Srikrishna Janmabhumi Nirman Nyas, Narayani Sena and the Srikrishna Mukti Dal, had earlier sought permission to hold non-traditional programmes on the day.

District Magistrate Navneet Singh Chahal had turned them down, saying the question of granting permission to any event that may potentially disrupt peace does not arise.

“Adequate force has also been deployed at every entry point of Mathura,” Senior Superintendent of Police Gaurav Grover said.

President of Shahi Idgah committee professor Z Hasan, however, said that he has been living in Mathura for over 50 years and has always found the environment cordial and affectionate.

The suits seeking the shifting of the mosque is pending in courts, and their judgement will be honoured, committee members of the mosque said.



Muslim Barelvi sect wants to merge Pakistan and Bangladesh back into Bharat

Muslim organisation All India Tanzeem Ulama-e-Islam which claims to be the prominent organisation of the Barelvi sect of Muslims, has said that it will start a movement for Akhand Bharat (Undivided India), which means Bharat should be again geographically as it was in the pre-Independence era.

The organisation’s general secretary Maulana Shahabuddin Razvi, who is based in Bareilly while the organisation is headquartered in Delhi, told IANS, “It’s our intention that India should attain Akhand Bharat status with merger of Pakistan and Bangladesh as it was before partition.”

He said that when Germany can unite why not Bharat, which has the same culture as Pakistan and Bangladesh. We should move forward, it will make Bharat a strong country.

Bharat was partitioned in 1947 when Pakistan came into existence and in 1971 Bangladesh was liberated from Pakistan, forming three separate nations.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat  also advocated for ‘Akhand Bharat’ (united India) in a book launching  event on November 26. He termed the partition as an unforgettable event and asserted that the pain of division will only end when the partition would be revoked.
