via VSK, Chennai published on April 24, 2010

In Satthirapatti village, near Palani, Dindigul District, an old Vinayaka Temple is being worshipped by the villagers. Since the temple was not in good condition, villagers decided to renovate it. When renovation work was going on, the Revenue Department decided to demolish the temple citing the Supreme Court orders not to build a temple. Villagers gathered in strength and protested. Supreme Court Order states that no new temple should be allowed to be built. Talks were held. Hindu Munnani district president Ravibalan and district secretary Manikandan along with other office bearers, Tahsildar Basheer, Police Inspector Palanisamy, Panchayat President Karunakaran and Councilor Lakshmanan among others, participated in the talks. In conclusion, Tahsildar accepted that it is a 100 year old temple and it is improper to demolish the temple. He also agreed that the demolition will be stopped with immediate effect. This was given in writing duly signed by Tahsildar.
