Tamil Nadu: Hindu religious and charitable department attempts to take control of ancient Sri Kalikambal Temple in Chennai!

Police suppress protests by Hindu organisations

Devout Hindu R D Prabhu in conversation with a journalist

Chennai (Tamil Nadu): The famous and ancient Sri Kalikambal Temple is located in the historical Parry’s corner here. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj came here to seek blessings of the Goddess. This temple has been traditionally maintained by the Vishwakarma community since ancient times. It is a privately owned temple. Recently the Hindu Religious and Charitable Department of the state attempted to wrest control of the temple. The Madras High Court ruled in favour of the temple. This has now been challenged by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Department. Although the matter is sub judice, the department had planned on taking control of the temple on October 3, 2023. Activists of Hindu organisations had gathered to protest this. They were taken into custody by the police.

Mrs Sugandhi Jayakumar, H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran, as well as other Hindu devotees who participated in the protest

Bharat Hindu Munnani’s R.D. Prabhu organised a protest in the temple premises against the Hindu Religious and Charitable Department. Around 11 am, 50 to 60 Hindu devotees gathered for this protest. Mr. Jayakumar, Mrs. Sugandhi Jayakumar and H.H. (Mrs.) Uma Ravichandran of the HJS participated in this protest. The officials of the Hindu Religious and Charitable Department discussed the issue with the temple trustees. They did not allow the devout Hindus to come. Then the police took Mr Prabhu and other devout Hindus into custody.

What else can be expected in a state ruled by the DMK, which is eager to destroy Sanatan Dharma! Hindus across the country must unite to oppose such a government by every legal means possible! – Editor
