‘Mandir Sanskruti Rakshan’ meeting in Mumbai
Hindu brothers rely on the Government to advocate for a Hindu Rashtra, but there exists a group within society that strongly influences the Government’s actions. Even with Hindus in positions of power, it seems that the Government often aligns itself with the views of this group. Our Nation is not under the control of terrorists, so why does the Government sometimes take an anti-Hindu stance ? Who has authorized the Government to control temples ? This question was raised by the well-known orator and senior journalist, Mr Pushpendra Kulshrestha, during his presentation at the ‘Mandir Sanskruti Rakshan’ meeting organised by the Gaud Saraswat Brahmin Temple Trust, Maharashtra Mandir Mahasangha, and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, held at the ‘Swatantryaveer Savarkar Rashtriya Smarak’ in Dadar, Mumbai.
The program commenced with the chanting of Deity Ganesha’s shlok, the blowing of the conch, recitation of Vedic mantras, and the lighting of a ceremonial lamp by distinguished guests. The event was graced President of GSB Temple Trust Mr Praveen Kanvinde, Secretary of the Trust Mr Shashank Gulgule, leader of MNS Mr Nitin Sardesai, an eminent surgeon from Mumbai Dr Amit Thadhani, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh State Organiser of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti Mr Sunil Ghanwat,and the National President of Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad Advocate Virendra Ichalkaranjikar. The gathering included dignitaries from various fields and a large number of patriotic citizens.
During his address, Mr Pushpendra Kulshrestha expressed concern that even though the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir was widely known, there had been a lack of meaningful action. While the killing of Akhlakh by a mob in Ghaziabad led to global protests, there was a conspicuous silence after the mob lynching of 477 Hindu youths occurred in the country after its Independence. These incidents are taking place in a Nation with 85 crore Hindus, so it is imperative for Hindus to unite and work in the interest of Hindutva. Hindus should strive to gain such influence that the Government aligns its actions with their wishes.
On this occasion, the renowned surgeon who exposed corruption in the Shri Siddhivinayak temple in Mumbai, Dr Amit Thadhani, released his Marathi book ‘Dabholkar-Pansare Hatya : Tapasatil Rahasye.’ The book sheds light on the flawed investigations into the murders of rationalists in Maharashtra.
Mr Shashank Gulgule provided insights into the activities of the ‘GSB Temple Trust,’ while Mr Ritvik Aurangabadkar, Chief Executive Officer of the Trust, presented information about the ‘Banganga Tirtha and Corridor Project.’ The Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad, represented by Advocate Virendra Ichalkaranjikar, was commended for its efforts in exposing various temple-related scams in Maharashtra.
Why taking over of the temples by the Government : – Sunil Ghanwat
Despite the magnificent Shrirama temple standing in Ayodhya, temples in Kashi and Mathura remain under Government control. Furthermore, across the country, 4 lakh 50 thousand temples are Government-controlled. The question arises : Why only Hindu temples ? This question was raised by Mr Sunil Ghanwat, the coordinator of ‘Maharashtra Mandir Mahasangha.’Pushpendra_Kul_Mandir_Parishad_PN_E
