Musings on the future of Hindu temples under HR&CE Department -- GP Srinivasan

Musings on the Future of Hindu Temples under HR & CE Department !


 For 50 years or more , the term HR&CE Admn. Dept. has been mis- interpreted, mis-used used and abused by diehard anti-Hindus. The words “Religious" and “Charitable" are only adjectives of the word endowments. There is no mention of temples.  

The HR&CE Admn.  Dept's domain is confined to endowments.  It has no jurisdiction over the functioning or administration of the temples. While the Govt. pokes not even in the endowments of the minorities,  it is a clear case of  interference in  and violation of the liberty  of the majority community under article 26 of Indian Constitution. It is strange that the main stream Hindu Organizations have not joined the struggle to liberate the Hindu Temples from mismanagement of a corrupt Government department.    

 The Britishers raised the bogey of anarchy to hide their unwillingness to handover India to    Indians. Yet, India has not perished in 66 years (since 1947) . History has exposed the desire of Britain to rule the countries colonized by means fair & foul. [The HR & CE is a remnant colonial vestige that has not fallen off of its own.] 

The former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Mr.M.Karunanidhi, who is keen to take over of the Chidambaram Temple that belongs to the Dikshitars, by using the bogey of mismanagement , has created a 'struggle front' by using a stooge called Arumughasami. 

It is doubtful how the likes of Arumughasami, could pay the fees of a high profile lawyer like Colin Gonslves, a Christian,   raised the bogey of  the minority denominational status of the Deekshitars in the Court? 

       Likewise, the HR & CE Dept. in TN is raising a Spectre of mismanagement of temples to delay  the handing over  of the management of temples to an autonomous body. 

           During the appointment of IAS officers to head the Dept. there was at least one saving grace.

           With the Democle's sword of sudden transfers hanging over them, the IAS Officers thought   Twice before taking any crucial decision.

          Now, the appointment of HR &CE staffer as head has turned the status of temples further bad.

         Like Indians ruling India in pre -British India village-level teamsof Hindus can & will better the future of temples.

      Cases are cooked up against Deekshitars to divert public attention 
 (Indian Express Dec. 7th) . While apex bodies of most Depts. have built- in Internal probing Internal Audit system why special judicial powers to HR&CE Dept.? 

       A litigant giving judgment is a mockery of Indian Judiciary.

      Claims by the HR&CE Dept. about the numbers of temples under its Controls are inconsistent. 

       Records of how each temple came under its control is not available.   While census of India 1961books on TN could provide around 20 facts About each temple it is ridiculous, that in computer Digital age the HR&CE Dept does not publish all available facts of temples claimed as under its control. 

      Similar and  more factors not only disqualify HR&CE Dept from controlling Temples but also attract action against it by the SC.

128 Naxal fronts of CPI(M) exposed. Likely that some mainstream media are also naxal fronts?


Friday, 11 October 2013 | Rakesh K Singh | New Delhi
The banned Communist Party of India (Maoist) has put in place as many as 128 front organisations across 16 States for carrying out Naxal propaganda and bringing newer areas under its influence.
Apart from the Naxal-affected States, there are as many as nine such outfits in Delhi, three in Gujarat, 8 in Haryana, 10 in Punjab, 12 in Karnataka, four each in Kerala and Tamil Nadu and two in Uttarakhand.
Among the Naxal-affected States, Jharkhand tops the list with 17 front organisations followed by 13 in Andhra Pradesh, 10 each in Bihar and Odisha, nine each in West Bengal and Maharashtra, six in Chhattisgarh and two in Uttar Pradesh.
The propaganda stage is the first step by the Maoist before carrying out violence. The front outfits also mobilise people against the State when the Maoists suffer setbacks at the hands of security agencies.
These organisations intend to create disenchantment among the masses against the State apparatus with the twin objective of enlisting their support for dharnas and demonstrations and to prepare them for violent revolution later.
The growth of these outfits in States like Delhi, Haryana, Punjab in the north, Gujarat in the west and Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu in the south is an indication that Maoists aim to enlarge their area of operation and the arc of violence. The expansion in these States also suggests the ultras have plans to bring urban areas in the ambit of Naxal violence, a senior security official said.
The active outfits in Delhi include Delhi General Mazdoor Front, Democratic Students’ Union, Nari Mukti Sangh, Revolutionary Democratic Front, Vikalp (cultural front), Forum Against War on People, Committee for Release of Political Prisoners, People’s Democratic Front of India and Mehnatkash Mazdoor Morcha.
The three outfits operating in Gujarat include Gujarat Working Class Wing, Krantikari Kamdar Sangathan and Naujawan Bharat Sabha. 
The outfits under the scanner of security agencies in Haryana include Disha Sanskritik Manch, Jan Chetna Manch, Krantikari Mazdoor Sangathan, Mahila Mukti Morcha, Naujawan Dasta, Shaheed Bhagat Singh Kisan Manch and Shivalik Jan Sangharsh Manch. The outfits in Punjab include Jamhoori Adhikar Manch, Kirti Mazdoor Union, Lok Morcha, Punjab Radical Students Union, Operation Green Hunt Virodhi Jamhoori Manch.
