Karnataka CM Bommai vows to bring law to free temples from govt control, fulfil BJP poll promise

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has announced plans to give the state’s temples autonomy from government control — a 2018 poll promise of the BJP, and a pet project of the Sangh Parivar.

A law to release temples from the administrative control of the government will be introduced before the budget session, he said Wednesday. The next session of the Karnataka legislature is expected to be held in February.

“My government will do it… Other than regulation, there shall be no restriction on administration or control of Hindu temples. There will be full freedom and autonomy,” Bommai said during his speech at the state executive meeting.

Bommai’s assurance was met with celebratory chants by party members.  

“Our seniors have apprised me of their opinion on how places of worship belonging to other religions have separate laws to protect them and give them freedom of administration. But Hindu temples are restricted under government control. They have raised concerns over how the temples’ own funds can’t be spent unless there is bureaucratic consent,” the CM said, right before making the big announcement.

Senior RSS leaders have been demanding for years that all Hindu temples, like mosques and churches, be given a free hand in administration, and freed from government control. Freeing temples from the endowments department has featured prominently in the BJP’s election manifestos over the years.


Vaishno Devi yatra continues , Stampede probe report to be submitted soon

The Mata Vaishno Devi yatra is going on smoothly despite the early Saturday morning stampede that killed 12 people and left several others injured, an official spokesperson said, adding that about 27,000 pilgrims offered prayers at the cave shrine during the day.

After the stampede, the rescue operation was launched promptly by a joint team of the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, the district administration, police and the CRPF, the government spokesman said in a statement, adding “the situation was brought under control within a span of five minutes”.

“The yatra is continuing smoothly, with approximately 27,000 pilgrims having done darshan at the holy shrine today (Saturday),” the spokesman said.

He said Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, who is also the chairperson of the shrine board, has been personally monitoring the whole situation since early morning and also visited the Super-Specialty Hospital, Kakryal, and enquired about the health of the injured pilgrims and interacted with them.

He also directed the officials to ensure that the ex gratia amount of Rs 10 lakhs for the deceased and Rs 2 lakhs for the injured, already announced by the government, should be released in favour of the legal heirs on priority in a hassle free manner, the spokesman said.

It appears that some kind of minor scuffle between few pilgrims may have led to the stampede near Gate no.3, where the pathway has a steep gradient, the spokesman said.

The three-member panel set up to probe the stampede has been asked to submit its report to the Jammu and Kashmir government within a week, according to an official order issued on Saturday.

The committee headed by the principal secretary (home) was constituted by the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha.

“The Committee shall examine in detail the causes/reasons behind the incident (stampede) and point out the lapses and fix the responsibility thereof,” the order said.

It said the committee would submit its report within a week’s time to the government and also suggest appropriate standard



Tamil Nadu Police probe source of 500-cr emerald Shivalingam seized from bank locker

Tamil Nadu Police is on the pursuit of the source of Rs 500 crore worth Emerald Shivalingam that was recovered from a bank locker at Thanjavur.

 Additional DGP K. Jayanth Murali, who is heading the investigation, told reporters that they are ascertaining from where the person in whose locker the lingam was recovered on Thursday sourced the idol. The police had acted following a tip that antique idols were kept at a house in Thanjavur.

They quizzed N.S. Arun, son of octogenarian Samiyappan, the owner of the lingam. However, he said that he did not know anything and that his father had kept an Emerald Lingam at the bank locker. Police found the emerald lingam and experts have confirmed it to be original.

Police are investigating whether the lingam was the one that went missing from a Shiva temple at Thirukuvalai in Nagapattinam district in 2016. Jayant Murali told the mediapersons that Samiyappan and Arun are cooperating with the investigation.

The Dharma Sansad was organised on December 16 and 17 in Haridwar where reports of  speeches targeting of minorities had surfaced.
