20 arrested, for attack on Hindu temple in Pakistan

Police in Pakista

n’s Punjab province on Saturday have arrestED 20 people and booked over 150 others for their alleged involvement in an attack on a Hindu temple in a remote town of the country.

The police action came after the country’s Supreme Court on Friday pulled up authorities for failing to stop the attack and ordered the arrest of the culprits, observing that the incident has tarnished the image of the country abroad.

Hundreds of people, carrying sticks, stones and bricks attacked the temple, burning parts of it and damaging the idols, in Bhong area of Rahimyar Khan district of the province in protest against the release by a court of an eight-year-old Hindu boy, who was arrested for allegedly urinating in a local seminary.

“We have so far arrested over 20 suspects allegedly involved in attacking the temple in Bhong,” District Police Officer (DPO) of Rahim Yar Khan Asad Sarfraz told reporters.

He said more arrests are expected in the coming days as police are identifying the suspects through video footage. An FIR has been registered under terrorism and other sections of the Pakistan Penal Code he said.

On Friday, Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed said that vandalism at the temple had brought shame to the country as police acted like silent spectators. The Chief Justice wondered at the arrest of the eight-year-old boy and asked whether police were incapable of understanding the mental capacity of the minors.

Pakistan’s parliament on Friday condemned the temple attack by adopting a resolution. The hearing in the case has been adjourned till August 13.

India on Thursday summoned the Pakistani charge d’affaires in New Delhi and lodged a firm protest, expressing grave concerns at this reprehensible incident and the continued attacks on the freedom of religion of the minority communities and their places of religious worship in Pakistan.

Hindus form the biggest minority community in Pakistan. According to official estimates, 75 lakh Hindus live in Pakistan. However, according to the community, over 90 lakh Hindus are living in the country. The majority of Pakistan’s Hindu population is settled in Sindh province.

Giant sea waves swallow centuries-old temple in Odisha’s Kendrapara district

The marauding sea that had been eroding the coastline in Kendrapara for decades, devouring one village after another, recently razed to the ground the centuries-old Pancha varaahi temple.

Away from their hometown, much of which has been eaten up by the sea, some of its former residents, however, visited Satabhaya village from time to time to pay obeisance at the Pancha varahi temple, although the idol of the deity has also been relocated to the rehabilitation colony.

Shivendra Narayan Bhanjadeo, the scion of an erstwhile royal family of Rajkanika and the trustee of the temple, said Satabhaya has lost its identity with the caving-in of the shrine.

 The distance between the sea and the temple was around three kilometers some three decades ago. Now the sea has successfully gobbled up the centuries-old temple. For all practical purposes, Satabhaya has now lost its geographical identity,” Bhanjadeo added.

Swami Vivekananda’s statue unveiled  in London

PICTURE AND NEWS FROM ASIAN VOICE, LONDON

The first outdoor statue of Swami Vivekananda in the United Kingdom, sculpted in Portland stone was unveiled on 28 July to commemorate Swamiji’s arrival to England 125 years ago outside of Harrow Arts Centre in greater London area.

A vision of the late and former Mayor Cllr Mrinal Choudhury, who passed away on 1 August 2020, the statue was unveiled by The Mayor of Harrow Ghazanfar Ali. Deputy Mayor Sasikala Suresh, Manmeet Singh Naran, Minister for Coordination at the Indian High Commission and Swami Sarvasthananda of Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre, UK were also present. 

Swami Vivekananda travelled to the UK twice, in 1895 and 1896, lecturing successfully here. In November 1895, he met Margaret Elizabeth Noble an Irish woman who would become Sister Nivedita. During his second visit to the UK in May 1896 Vivekananda met Max Muller, a noted Indologist from the University of Oxford who wrote Ramakrishna’s first biography in the West.

Ayodhya Ram temple likely to open to devotees by 2023-end

The Ram temple in Ayodhya will be opened to the public by the end of 2023, even though the entire complex is expected to be ready only by 2025, a person aware of the matter said on Wednesday.

The foundation stone of the temple was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 5, 2020, and a year on, construction is on in full swing.

The ground floor of the temple, where the sanctum sanctorum will be located and where an idol of Ram Lalla will be placed, will be ready for prayers by December 2023 and arrangements are being made to streamline the process of providing security clearances and installing public amenities, said another person aware of the details.

The temple complex, which is expected to incur a cost of ₹900-1,000 crore and will be spread over 110 acres of land, is being built by Larsen & Toubro while Tata Consulting Engineers has been signed on as the project management consultant.

The temple complex will also have a museum, a research centre, and an archival centre.

MADRAS HIGH COURT seeks treatment of ethical treatment of cattle donated to Temples

Pointing out that the religious beliefs have to be respected and the cattle treated in a human and dignified manner as they are also living creatures, the first bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice P D Audikesavalu sought details of the standard operating procedure that may be in place for the well-being of the cattle.

The bench also appealed to the State to treat such animals in the most ethical manner and as per the intention of the donors until the issue is dealt in a wholesome manner by the court.

The court while adjourning the case by six weeks after seeking for the necessary report from the state by collating all materials by then, also recorded the petitioner Rangarajan Narasimhan’s submission that once a cow stops producing milk or a male calf is born or there is a bull which is useless in breeding purposes, they are disposed of in an unethical manner by sending them to slaughter houses much against the religious beliefs of the institutions and the donors.

12TH OCTOBER 2020 Weekly World Hindu News Bulletin

Namaste , Namskaram to everyone

This is a weekly ‘HINDU NEWS ROUND UP’ from around the world.

Read by SUJATHA RENGANATHAN .

This is a broadcast coming through ZOOM and FACEBOOK.COM / GNANA MAYAM live at 2 pm London Time and 6-30 Pm Indian Time Every Monday.

Even if you miss our live broadcast on Mondays, you can always visit us on FACE BOOK.COM – slash- Gnana Mayam 24 hours a day. 

 Here is the WEEKLY HINDU NEWS BULLETIN from ‘AaKaaSA DWANI’ Read by SUJATHA RENGANATHAN .

xxxx

First let me give you some good news from Uttar Pradesh,

Listeners may remember that Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi announced in parliament a trust to oversee the construction of a Ram Temple in Ayodhya, as ordered by the Supreme Court.

Now the trust  known as “Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra”,  has received donations exceeding rupees  one hundred crores. Apart from the cash donations, the trust has received silver vessels weighing 200 kilos.

In the mean time,


RAAMA RATHA YAATRAA HAS REACHED AYODHYA  from Rameswaram .

The yatra, organised by the Chennai-based Legal Rights Council, began on September 17 and covered a distance of 4,500 km across 11 states before reaching its destination.
on Wednesday  its participants handed over a large bell for installation at the Ram temple.

Talking to PTI, Rajlakshmi Manda, who drove the ratha, said the 4.1-foot-tall bell with ‘Jai Sri Ram’ embossed on it weighs 613 kg. Its sound can be heard within a radius of 10 km of the temple

Xxxx

Now some news coming from Kerala……

The expert committee constituted by the Kerala government to suggest measures for the safe conduct of  Sabarimala pilgrimage during Covid – 19 pandemic this season, has recommended that only 1000 devotees each should be allowed to climb up to the hill shrine on week days and two thousand each on Saturday and Sunday.

Pilgrims need Covid – 19 negative certificates  during the annual mandala-makaravilakku pilgrimage season . 

All testing and screening activities will be carried out at the Sabarimala base camp at Nilakkal

The mandala-Makaravilakku season will begin in November this year.

Devotees should carry reports to certify that they are not above 60 year of age and do not have any chronic ailments.

Xxxx

Shree Krishna temple in GURUVAAYUR is a famous temple in Kerala.

 Despite the government capping the daily number of  devotees allowed to enter the Guruvayur Sree Krishna Temple at 1,000, the  shrine now witnesses less than 50% of the permitted number of devotees. vertisement: 3:35

K B Mohandas, chairman,  Guruvayur Devaswom, told  newspapermen “Though 1,000 people are allowed to have darshan at the temple daily after booking their visit through the virtual queue system, hardly 50% of them turn up .

“Of the around 500 devotees who visit the temple daily, half of them are locals in the absence of devotees who have booked their visit.

The number of marriages held at the Guruvayur temple,  too has been drastically hit. Compared to the pre-Covid times when around 100 weddings used to take place daily at the divine abode, their number has come down to a handful now.

xxx

Another famous temple, is also affected due to virus attack.

The Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple in Thiruvananthapuram has been closed for devotees till October 15, after at least 10 priests tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the temple authorities, daily poojas will be held by Tantris,  but devotees will not be allowed inside the temple till October 15.

xxxxxxxxxxxx

Another controversy is brewing in Andhra Pradesh

Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will present silk robes to Goddess Kanaka Durga atop Indrakeeladri on Moola Nakshatram day during Navaratri celebrations, according to Sri Durga temple Devasthanam

The temple trust board held a meeting on Wednesday to review arrangements for the nine-day Dasara festivities, which will be held from October 17 to 25.

The trust board passed as many as 37 resolutions regarding the arrangements for the annual temple festival and other development works. 

Addressing the media, temple Executive Officer MV Suresh Babu said the budget for the festivities is estimated at Rs 5 crore.

A few weeks ago Jagan mohan Reddy’s visit to the Balaji Temple at Tirupati created a controversy. He is a Christian and he came to the temple without his wife. Politicians and Hindu organisations criticised him for this.

In the mean time………………….

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat offered prayers at the Goddess Kanaka Durga Temple on Saturday.

Bhagwat reached Vijayawada a day earlier to participate in the three-day RSS annual meeting .

On his visit to the hill shrine, temple Executive Officer  MV Suresh Babu and priests accorded him a traditional welcome.

Hindus in Britain have criticised the A Q A for linking Hindus with terrorism in the school syllabus.

AQA,  the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, is an awarding body in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It compiles specifications and holds examinations in various subjects at GCSE, AS and A Level and offers vocational qualifications.

AQA is a registered charity and independent of the government

Vinay sharma , a Hindu from London has brought this issues on social media and asked all Hindus concerned to send an e mail to AQA.

Mr Sharma pointed out the line in the syllabus

On Page 4 and page 11 of the GCSC syllabus it says  “some Hindus have turned to terrorism to protect Hindu beliefs.”

Hindu organisations have no representative in the AQA.  They see it as a deliberate attempt to malign Hinduism. They also point out a mountain is made out of molehill.

According to Mr Sharma their email is eos@aqa.org.uk

Hindus should ask the exam body to change these lines and any such matters in their syllabus

so that the image of Hindus and Hinduism is not wrongly projected amongst the children of this

country.
