Urgent Appeal from Hindu Janjagruti Samiti. Please pass on to all Ganesh Devotees.
Dear Hindu Brethren and Devotees of Lord Ganesha,
Lord Ganesha has been known as the "Deity of Maharashtra". Maharashtra has the famous Self-made(Swayambhu) Ashtavinayakas(8 Vinayakas), a source of Spiritual Energy for Lord Ganesha devotees. The Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai, which is the richest temple trust in Maharashtra Second only to Shirdi Sansthan of Sai Baba has been taken over by the Congress Government of Maharashtra. The congress Government has been known to indulge in policies and practices detrimental to the interest of Hindus throughout the post-independence period. The present day Siddhivinayak Temple Committee has been appointed by the Government of Maharashtra primarily with the aim of controlling the funds of the Trust.
And what does the Government do with these funds raised by the Temple Trust by the devout offerings of devotees ? There is evidence from the Tipnis Report that this money goes to Muslim Madarasas and Christian Missionary NGOs !
The Congress and Rashtravadi Congress(NCP) have divided the Shirdhi Sai Baba Sansthan and Siddhivinayak Temple Trust amongst themselves as if these Trusts are commodities to be used and exploited by the Government for its anti-hindu and Anti-National policies of minority appeasement.
Surprisingly, while the Government of Maharashtra headed by Congress continues to neglect Hindu welfare and Religious Sentiments in various issues, at the same time, the Government is interested in holding sway over only Hindu Religious places and Temples. Government has not taken over any Masjid(mosque) or Church. This iself is sufficient to prove the anti-hindu nature of Maharashtra Government!
Hindu Janjagruti Samiti appeals to all devotees of Lord Ganesha to avoid making any donations to the Siddhivinayak Temple. Instead donations may be made in any local Ganesha Temple after paying obeisances to the Siddhivinayak idol.
