The struggle of Hindus to regain Panthaloor temple from the clutches of Christian Malayala Manoram a family in Malappuram District is not a matter of today or yesterday. The ongoing campaign has been a battle of time immemorial.
It was following the effective campaign of Hindu aikya Vedi over the years against oll odds 400 acres of Temple land , Revenue department have taken a favourable stand. But considering the Anti Hindu stands of those in power the chances to Hindus to claim it back are grim. There is now already moves by Revenue department to take over the land.
The episode of fighting for the rights of Panthalloor temple property is just one among the numerous instances in the pages of those constant battles for the rights of Hindu community. In Kerala, especially in the region of Malabar, most of the land belonged to temples, which when tallied up to around lakhs of acres. Ironically, these temples that witnessed ownership of vast tracts of land, now stand in very dilapidated conditions, with not much financial prospects for any temple proceedings. But if truth has to be pointed out, the section that stands responsible for the sad plight of temples are the clever land usurpers and the crafty government machinery that stands hand in hand with their shady work.
Right towards religious freedom and religious worship, possession of temple and temple property for Hindus are civil liberties granted to Indians by the Constitution of India. The looting and usurping of temple riches and landed property, confiscating what belongs to them and ultimately using the same against the Hindu community is now a recurring pattern in Kerala society. This is the doom and destiny of the Hindu community, which no other community suffers.
Indian social scenario now witnesses the state of affairs where things are being executed at knife point, with the matter of religion being used conveniently. There are ministers who work for their respective religions, to take care of their Christian and Muslim flock. They are the very same people who handle 80% of the revenue income of Kerala Treasury. These people resort to favouritism, promoting those they approve of, to high ranks. They are the ones who steer the government machinery in the direction they please. Those who have come into power should realize that it is not a specific religion that voted for them into power. They have been brought to power by the votes of people who follow many religions.
It is indeed alarming to think of the situation where Hindus are being constantly and craftily being denied of their basic rights. When it comes to the Rights of Hindus or taking care of their grievances, there is no one in the Ministry to raise voice or stand in support.
Those who come forward to protest against these injustice are termed as ‘Communalists’ and those who looted these Hindu properties like Manorama are termed as ‘Apostles of Secularism’!
