Travancore Dewaswom Board (TDB) President and Congress leader Prayar Gopalakrishnan said that Hindus are not everybody’s whipping boys. If somebody airs this view, he is painted as RSS.

He told a press conference that religious classes will be compulsory in Dewaswom temples. His bold statement was the reply to a question if such a step is against secularism. He added that Board’s Hindutva is bhakti and worship, not politics.

Only those Hindus who do have temple darshan at least twice week will be eligible to be a member of the temple advisory committes. Such members should send the children of their families to the religious classes. Prayar added that since Dewasom is a constitutional institution he is not worried about the opposition to this step from LDF government led by CPM

    They talk about secularism when it comes to Hindu temple matters? Mosques all over the country teach Islam to Muslim children. Why doesn’t anyone talk about securalism with them? We applaud Mr Satisan for his firm stance. God bless him.
