BJP MLA from Chikkamangaluru constituency in the State of Karnataka and BJP National General Secretary Mr. C.T. Ravi has promised to return all the temples to the devotees if the BJP comes to power in Tamil Nadu. He has supported the campaign ‘Free the temples !’ He also tweeted about it. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is welcoming MLA C.T. Ravi’s promise. Earlier, Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa had assured that if the BJP came to power in Karnataka, all the temples in the State would be handed over to the devotees again, It was also mentioned in the BJP’s election manifesto. After the BJP came to power in Karnataka, as a first step, cow protection law was legislated. In the same way, the decision to liberate all temples in Karnataka should be taken and hand them over to Hindu devotees, demanded Mr. Ramesh Shinde, the National Spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti.
During the Congress rule, thousands of temples in various States were taken over by the Government and God’s money in temples was looted. Hindu places of worship were thus assaulted. Only Hindu temples were taken over by the Government and mosques and churches were left untouched. BJP should start removing this injustice, said Ramesh Shinde.
