Congress has become epitome of minority appeasement for votes ! This same ‘cash strapped’ govt is thinking to sale or develop temple lands for getting revenue, while they are going to increase salaries of imams and muezzins by more than 200 %. Hindus must unite to stop such moves by Congress Govt ! – Editor, Hindujagruti
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Tuesday (25 Feb) agreed to increase the salaries of imams from Rs 2,200 to Rs 5,000 and muezzins from Rs 1,900 to Rs 4,500 per month. The increase in salaries was proposed by Minority Welfare Minister Arif Aqeel. The Chief Minister made this announcement after inaugurating the new building of the Madhya Pradesh Mosque Committee near Tajul Mosque.
Interestingly it was reported just 2 weeks before this ‘appeasement exercise’ that Grappling with severe financial crunch after Centre slashed Madhya Pradesh’s share in the revenue, the Kamal Nath government is mulling to save Rs 25,000 crore ahead of budget session of Madhya Pradesh by ceasing allocations to the departments and expenditures in events at five-star hotels apart from the purchase of new vehicles and equipment during coming two months.
To get funds, this same Govt wants to develop and sale temple lands. As per reports, The Kamal Nath government could enact a law to remove encroachment around government-run temples and use the land for development, beautification, construction of dharamshalas and setting up religious libraries. MP law minister P C Sharma said: “There are around 25,000 acres of land belonging to a temple in Ujjain. This land will be developed and sold. The money will go to a state-level fund and to every district fund.”
