The temple trustees should put in a concerted effort to free temples from government control – Sunil Ghanwat
Temples are centres to spread knowledge on Dharma. Today, more than 175 temples in Maharashtra have implemented a sattvik dress code. More efforts are required to turn this into a national movement. Mr Ghanwat asserted that the temple trustees should put in a concerted effort to ensure that the temples become freed from government control and to create awareness on the Waqf board’s ploy to usurp temple land.
The trustees of various temples present in the meeting and the leaders of the Maharashtra Mandir Mahasangh decided to unitedly act to stop the attacks on temple traditions, and to take swift steps to stop the massive loot of devotees by temples under government control.
