Panvel: Dr. Durgesh Samant, the national spokesperson of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) said that we know the adverse effects of ‘Temple take-over’ Bill in other States and it is quite clear that the secular Government has an eye on the temple funds. How can such secular Government take care of or preserve the eminence of Dharma? A public meeting has therefore, been organized by the HJS to create awareness among people towards the proposed ‘Temple take-over’ Bill and ‘Black Magic’ Bill on 27 th May 2007 at Panvel. A press conference was held to release information about the said meeting.
Shri. Motilal Jain, Dy. Chairman of Shwetambar Jain temple said After temples were taken over by the Kerala Government, many temples were closed down within short span of time. HJS has taken initiative to prevent such situation in Maharashtra and all trustees of temples and religious institutions have come together.
Shri. Ratanchand Karwa, the Chiarman of ‘Sree Balaji Devasthan Trust’ and ‘Panchmukhi Hanuman Temple Trust’ at Panvel raised a doubt that after take over would the Government be ale to appoint capable priest who can perform puja daily as per the science. Shri. Ramesh Shinde, the spokesperson of HJS for the State of Maharasthra said that HJS has started such extensive campaign to create awareness among masses towards the anti-Hindu laws.
