 Karnataka Revenues From Temples Diverted For Haj Subsidy and Madarassas

By: Anjali Patel

http://pseudosecularism.blogspot.com/2003/10/revenues-from-temples-diverted-for-haj.html

 

Highlights:

 

* 70% (Rs. 50.00 Crores) of Hindu Temples money is diverted for Muslim Madarasas and Haj by Indian Government.

 

*5,000 Temples in Karnataka to be closed down due to lack of funding and maintenance

 

* During Kumbh Mela in Nasik each Hindu was forced to pay Rs.25 to Rs.50 for a dip in the holy water. Congress, BJP and Shiv Sena said nothing about this (while giving money to Muslims and Christians).

 

* Today, if a Hindu or Sikh wishes to visit holy places in Kailash Mansarovar or Gurudwara in Pakistan, leave alone subsidiary, they are forced to shell out large amount of money to visit their holy places (while Islam enjoys massive 70% share of Hindus hard earned money to visit Haj in Saudi Arabia)

Details:

The Congress Government of Karnataka has made another breakthrough in appeasing the Minority Communities in Karnataka. The Government passed a bill in the assembly that all private owned temples and the temple comprising of trustees in Karnataka must pay minimum tax to the Government every year. Failing to which, the authorized people of the temple would be liable and or would be prosecuted. This law is being passed in order to generate income for the development of madarasas and provide subsidies to Haj Pilgrims in Karnataka.

Earlier to this the Government was collecting the entire income from all the Government Controlled temples in the state.

It looks like the Congress Government of Karnataka is more concerned about the madarassas and the Haj Committee, but it has turned a blind eye at the fate of 2.5 lakh Hindu Temples in Karnakata, which is actually under their direct control. If the Government continues its neglect towards the maintenance and development of these temples for other few years, we

will not be surprised to see that over 50,000 Temples will be forced to closed town in next five years. Karnatka is the 4th State in India of having highest number of temples, out of which large number require immediate financial aid.

In regard to this, we made a visit to few ancient temples in Karnakata. We felt very sad seeing the pathetic conditions of the poorly maintained temples by the Government. We had spoken to a few temples Uttaradhikaris and priests in Government owned temple. Each and everyone expressed their displeasure and at the attitude of the Government. They say that they are not receiving any financial aid for day-to-day maintenance of the temple. They even said that they were employed on salary basis, which they are not receiving regularly. Some priests told us that they have not received salaries for over 6 months period and they are surviving only on collections donated by the devotees by the in the Aaarti@ plate.

In view of the Coming Lok Sabha elections, the Government would like to appease their precious vote bank by even taxing the individual owned temples in Karnataka to generate more money for madarassa development and Haj Subsidy. It is unfortunate that even the opposition party like the BJP, which has come to power at the centre on the Hindutva platform has remained quite in this matter. Today If a Hindu or Sikh wishes to visit our holy place in Kailash Mansarovar or the holy Gurudwara in Pakistan, leave alone subsidy, they are forced to shell out large amount of money to visit their holy shrines.

Few days back, during the Kumbh Mela in Nasik, each Hindu was forced to pay Rs.25/- to Rs.50/- to have a dip in the holy sangam. In Maharashtra too the there is a Congress Government and it is the same silent opposition BJP and Shivsena.

Is anybody seriously concerned about this? The Hindus and their temples have no source of income from anywhere. They are forced to generate all the finance in India itself. But it is not the same in the case of Muslims and Christians. The Muslims receive aid from many Muslim countries in various forms and the Christians receive bountiful grants in the form of charities from their Christian Brothers in Vatican city, Europe, America, Australia etc. 

To further appease their precious vote bank what has the Governments in store for Hindus in the future?

Tomorrow they may collect taxes from Hindus, if Hindus want to survive in Hindustan.

 

Temples Takeover Act
Maharashtra Government's Ploy to take over all Temples: Mosques Excluded The Congress united front government running the Maharashtra State, has made it bankrupt and is now planning to take over 4,50,000 temples and all religious institutions in the State. As per the recommendations of '15th Law Commission' formed under the chairmanship of Shri. D. N. Chaudhury, the State Government is planning to pass a law to this effect. The 'secular' (?) State Government has excluded all the mosques, Durgahs and madarassas registered with the Wakf Board.
How will this impact?
1. Government may take control of trusts. (4, 50, 000 temples)
2. All the mosques, Durgahs and Madarassas registered with the Wakf Board are excluded.
3. The state will decide how trust money will be spent.
4. The trusts now contribute 2 per cent of their gross income to run the Charity Commissioner's Office. If the new law is passed, that may go up to 8 per cent.
5. There should be three trustees per trust. One will be appointed by the government.
6. All income should be in a common fund, there should be no lifetime trustees, each trustee should be liable (not just the trust) and donations must be approved by the charity commissioner.

False Reasoning by Government
Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh ordered the drafting of a new law after a stampede killed 267 people at Mandradevi Temple in Satara in January 2005. The Maharashtra Temples or Religious Institutions (Management and Regulation) Bill will come soon in the cabinet. The Government has put forth the reason that
planning and utilization of temple funds is not done properly and therefore, the above Law is proposed.
True reasons for proposing this law

1. Government has become bankrupt and it is willing to utilize money offered by devotees to conceal its failure.
2. Government is taking over only wealthy temple trusts and ignoring the trusts which actually need the financial support.
3. Congress and Marxist governments have misused the temple funds in various states including Maharashtra. _Read more

On the contrary to this new law, it is a known fact that there are malpractices and mismanagement of funds belonging to Siddhivinayak Temple Trust which is under the control of the Government. The said Trust managed by the Government is giving donations of crores of rupees, holding meetings in seven star
hotels thus playing with the feelings of devotees and wasting money donated by devotees. For the last 26 weeks (as of 10-Oct-06), on every Tuesday HJS is holding demonstrations in front of the temple against the said malpractices.
