In the aftermath of the daring robbery in the Kapaleeshwarar Temple, Mylapore, Chennai,
the City Police Commissioner ordered for a ‘420 Patrolling Beat’ the
same night across the city and took in to custody hundreds of persons.
Of these, 50 were rowdies, 150 were history-sheeters and 50 were
warrant-pending accused persons. Most of these culprits are in their
prime youth. Two separate police teams are investigating the Mylapore
theft case.


general, the ‘Law & Order’ situation in the state is not up to the
satisfaction of the people. While there is a spurt in the LTTE
activities, the activities of ‘Tamil Extremists’ and Naxalites with Maoist
connection is also on the increase. Apart from these, thefts, robberies
and chain snatching have become the order of the day. Political murders
and murders due to intra-gang rivalries are also occurring at regular
intervals. Among all these crimes, regularly happening temple related
crimes have caused great concern in the minds of the people,
particularly the millions of devoted Hindus.

    , Vinayakar Koil and Ayyanar Appan Koil, oposite to Thirukkovilur Arts and



has been reported is only the tip of the iceberg. There are many thefts
and robberies, which go unreported. In many places, there seems to be a
nexus between the cops and the thieves. There are a few places, where
complaints are not registered with the police and a few more places
where the police have failed in finding the culprits or have not shown
interests in investigation. We get the following inferences from
analysing the available reports.


  • Most of the culprits are in their prime youth and they have also taken to atheistic ideologies.

  • They
    are driven by immoral attitude with an aim of making fast buck to enjoy
    life with wine, women and other luxuries like Motorcycles and Mobile

  • Their
    minds are so corrupted with violent and inhuman thoughts that make them
    to even commit heinous crimes like murdering watchmen and priests to
    achieve their task.

  • Most
    of them belong to Dravidian and Tamil-separatist movements and most of
    them are driven by such ideologies and atheistic and anti-Hindu
    propaganda, which have spoilt their psyche.

  • The
    habitual thieves operate like organized gangs forming a clean network
    through out the state, some even at inter-state level. These gangs have
    an unholy nexus with the temple staff and lower rung policemen.


Nadu is a state, which has been ruled (nay, ruined) by Atheistic
Dravidian political parties for the last forty years. Most of the
Ministers, MLAs and Government officials are atheists. Atheists are
controlling the Temples, temple lands, Goshalas and temples’ other
properties. Majority of the staff posted in HR & CE Department are
atheists. They consider temples as their own fiefdoms. They feel that
they are not accountable to the devotees on whose contributions the
temples are being run and that they need not be responsible for the
problems faced by the devotees. They refuse to accept the fact that
they are public servants and that they should work with responsibility,
for they are being paid for their jobs with the devotees’ money. When
the Chief Minister, cabinet ministers and the entire Dravidian Assembly
speaks ill of Hindus, Hindu Gods & Goddesses, Hindu Religion and
Hindu Culture, what else can be expected from those who are working
under them? It is quite natural that the anti-social elements get
emboldened by such apparent anti-Hindu stand adopted by the government.


is one and only solution, by which this ruining of temples by atheists
could be stopped. That is, the HR & CE Department must be abolished

must be liberated from the
control of governments, for the constitution of HR & CE itself is
unconstitutional. The temples must be handed over to an organization of
Acharyas and Religious Gurus like, say, Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha.
