While this matter was sub-judice, the trustees blew up Millions on their meetings in 7 stars hotels! Is blowing up the hard earned money of devotees, not a cruel mockery of democracy?

Donations from devotees should be spent on the religious matters only!

Temples are the ancient and age old foundations of our Sanatan Dharma. Knowing the importance of the tenets of Dharma, anti-social and anti-religious groups launched their attack on Sanatan Dharma.
