Udupi: VHP functionary Premananda Shetty advocates importance of temples, Naga Banas

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (HB/SP)

Udupi, Sep 17: "The faith Hindus have in their gods is not superstition. No one can build temples on the basis of falsehood. There are valid reasons for creating Naga Banas. The presence of Shakti Peetas is absolutely necessary. No politician has the guts to question namaz being offered by crowds on the roads by blocking the traffic. Demolition of temples where the presiding deity was being worshipped for hundreds of years is a conspiracy aimed at hurting the sense of unique identity prevailing among the Hindus. This is backed by unseen hands having international base. This is an effort to damaging the religious faith of the Hindus," said Premananda Shetty Kundapur, member of the national board of trustees of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP).

He was delivering the keynote address after participating in the protest meeting organized in front of the Martyrs Memorial at Ajjarkad here on Thursday September 16 against the forcible demolition of the ancient Sri Mahadevamma Bhyraveshwara temple in Nanjangud, Mysuru district.

He said that the areas which were predominantly inhabited by the Hindus in the past, because of the inability of the Hindus to assert the truth and because of their nature of remaining silent, the Hindus are paying the price and Bangladesh and Afghanistan were created. "Going by the haste with which the officials are going ahead with temple demolitions, it appears that there is prize for achieving this target. By demolishing temples, the concerned are testing the patience of the Hindus. The temple was built in tune with the requirements of the civilization that was present 5,000 years back. The road was built later. The temple was not built on the road," he pointed out.

Shetty stated that there seems to be a general feeling that opposing such things is entirely the responsibility of VHP and Bajrang Dal. "If the things are allowed to continue as they are, the situation here will turn into the one we are witnessing in Afghanistan. In that country, there are no people to undertake protests, and Muslims do not have place to settle down in Islamic countries. As the land has already been earmarked on the basis of religion, the country has been split. Even after all these things happened, are we waiting for the Afghanistan experience to get replicated here?" he wondered.

District coordinator of Bajrang Dal, Surendra Koteshwar, delivered introductory ad dress.

Matrushakti Pramukh, Poornima Suresh, VHP district vice president, Ashok Paladka, Sampark Pramukh, Girish Kundapur, Suraksa Pramukh, Rajesh Kotian, Bajrang Dal Akhada Pramukh, Manoj, and others were present.

    Why always speak about Namaz, and loud speakers, horns in mosques? If they are removed will you abandon temples and Naga Banas?

    Unnecessary to drag other religions into every hindhu related issues. Order given by the court. Challenge the order or force the govt to overrule the order in parliament..it shows no good impression if hindhu protests mean dtagging other religions into protest

    Being Hindu pretty sure most of them are superstitious cause it's clearly given in scriptures and vedas that God has no form or nor materials .we all waste money on useless things instead can spend that money for food education shelter for the poor orphoned kids and the elders. Where is god when earthquake tsunami flood and illness comes all the community prays be it Hindus, Muslims or Christians but all suffer and die the same fate. Praying does not work but planning does . iga yelle manushyaru manavadindha manga agtha idhare VA Kala bathind marre shaa.

    No one is against construction of temples. The issue is occupying public land and constructing the temple illegally. Tomorrow they will construct a temple in someones land and then claim that the land belongs to them? If they wanted to construct a temple first buy land and then construction millions of temple on them. And dont occupy public road and cause a traffic nuisance.
