Rajasekharan with Haindavakeralam in 2005)  


 

Though Hindu
organisations under Hindu Aikya Vedi had protested against this several times alternative
Government’s were turning a deaf ear towards it. Now Thanks to Devaswom Ombudsman
who was appointed as a result of devotees and Hindu organisations plea in High
Court came forward to fight against this grave injustice to Hindu Society.


 

Devaswom
Ombudsman Shri R Bhaskaran submitted a report in High court seeking subsidised
Electricity for SabarimalaTemple. Under the current
available provisions Government should give 40% Subsidy to Temples. He also recommended to change
Sabarimala from Low Tension-7 A group to Low Tension 6 A group.


 

Even after all these looting, Ministers like Sudhagaran says, “It’s all the charity by Government towards Hindus”! Unless Hindu
Soceity in the state come forward to question such malpractices by vested
interests, Our Temples will remain as Milch Cows for the Pseudoseculars who
rules us.
