Immediately book the perpetrators of corruption in Shri Tulja Bhavani Temple! – H.H. Advocate Suresh Kulkarni, Founding Member, Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad
Ramnathi : Shri Tuljabhavani is considered to be the matriarch of Maharashtra. So, the Maharashtra Government should initiate immediate action against those auctioneers and government officials who have been indicted in the CID report on Temple corruption. This demand was put forth by H.H. Advocate Suresh Kulkarni, the founding member of the Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad. He was during the session on “Legal ways to protect Dharma’ at the 10th Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan. Sushil Atre, Senior Advocate, Jalgaon (Maharashtra) and Nilesh Sangolkar, Organiser, Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad were present. H.H. Advocate Kulkarni Himself is a petitioner before the Bombay High Court in this matter.
He further said, “Between 1991 and 2009, more than 8 crores 45 lakh Rupees were siphoned off in the Tuljhabhavani Temple donation box auction. This temple is administered by the Government. The CID submitted its report to the Home Department on 20th September 2017; But even after 5 years, no action has been taken against the corrupt auctioneers and government officials who have been named in the report. It does not end here, the report has not been made public in the legislature or to the common man. The government should immediately file charges against the culprits without shielding them.”
Hindu devotees must put in efforts to preserve the ancient glory of Hindu temples! – Advocate Sushil Atre, Senior Advocate, Jalgaon
Speaking on the topic of ‘Hampi: Plan for Resurrection of the Temple City’, Advocate Sushil Atre (from Jalgaon) said, “The concept of Hindu Rashtra is not new to India. Many Hindu empires have existed before this. The Vijayanagara empire is one of them! The Vijayanagara Empire was sovereign and powerful. Our sages have already made the sankalp (resolve) for such Hindu empires; we Hindus failed to maintain that glory due to our apathy. This is the fault of Hindus. Many temples were built by the kings of the Vijayanagara Empire, especially Krishnadevaraya. According to historical evidence, the empire boasted of more than 300 magnificent ports. A large part of the proceeds from these ports was spent on the construction of temples; But today these temples are in a dilapidated condition. These temples are now under the jurisdiction of the Central Archaeological Department; But due to the extreme apathy of this department, the temples have seen no relief. If these temples are to be rebuilt, then the anti-Hindu laws will have to be changed. Expert Hindutva devotees should be ready to contribute in the future for the preservation of temples in their original form without rebuilding them in a modern way.”
If the police do not act against unauthorized loudspeakers, then file a complaint in the court! – Advocate Nilesh Sangolkar, Organizer, Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad
The Supreme Court, while ruling on the use of loudspeakers in religious places, has stated that harassing someone for one’s religious reasons is a violation of the freedom of religion enshrined in the Constitution. The Constitution gives everyone the right to life. If you are bothered by noise from illegal speakers in your area, report it to the police. The police promptly issue notices to Hindus during Hindu festivals; However, the same police do not take action even after complaints are filed against the loudspeakers that are active throughout the year. Therefore, if the police do not take action in such cases, then file a complaint in the court.
