Lame excuses cited to take over famous Anjaneya Temple

via HK published on May 30, 2007

With the culmination of the Kshetra Raksha Yatra the Hindus of Kerala are slowly beginning to wake up from their state of deep slumber  and started to appreciate , what the Hindu Ayikya Vedi has been saying all these days. The HAV has been holding press conferences, taking out road shows to educate the people on the dangers of the Devasom Bill and how it will affect the Hindus in the future.

The recent issue of the notice sent to the
Anjaneya Temple in Palakkad by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment is the best and most glaring example of this danger. The Government notice directs the samithy to hand over all movable and immovable property immediately to the Government.

The main reason cited for take over is that the
Temple is situated in Palakkad fort which is at present under Aracheological Department. This is just a lame excuse from the side of Government. No Archaeological Department or any Government body was there when the devotees took the Temple under their care which was on dilapidated condition years back. It was due to the blessings of Anjaneya and devoted service of Devotees under Anyaneya Seva Samithi bought this fame to the Temple.Sensing the increase in number of Devotees Government lost it’s sleep and decided to capture this Temple too, along with other 22 temples in Malabar region. None of the Temples which notice was send is under the Archaeology department which makes it clear that, raising such justifications are only a means to loot the money of devotees.


Questions are raised as to why the HR&CE was only taking over financially sound temples and not looking at other temples who are struggling to survive on a daily basis.


Hindu organizations and Devotees had decided to fight tooth and nail to protect the Temple from the clutches of Marxist Government, whose sole aim is to denigrate and destroy Hinduism.

Again we see the significance of HK’s earlier comment on starting a strong campaign to avoid putting money into the government coffers at these Devaswom owned temples. Pay only one rupee to the temple preist as dakshina. Once the temples become non profitable to the government you will see this trend being reversed and the government running to disown these properties.

So propagate the One Rupee Campaign.
