The Hon’ble High Court has directed that the Temple Revenue must not be diverted to the Government in a case filed by the Hindu Seva Kendram in connection with the transfer of funds from the Guruvayur Temple Treasury to the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund. The ruling is a major setback to the government’s ploy to take over the temple treasury under the current situation of a significant drop in temple revenue. Mr. Prasanna Kumar, an activist of Hindu Seva Kendram, approached the High Court through Adv. Krishnaraj and Adv. Pratheesh Vishwanath.
The court ruling comes as a boost to the Hindu Seva Kendram ‘s ongoing battles against encroachment and misuse of Temple property and it’s assets. Earlier, the Hindu Seva Kendra have retaliated court orders against the lease of temple land for cultivation as well as the conversion of temple ponds for fish farming.
Further Hindu Seva Kendram had filed a complaint in the court against the sale of Temple assets by Paramekavu Devaswom.
All these days Devaswom Board was dancing to the tunes of State Governments to attrite the Resources of Hindu Temples. It is really disappointing that no one from our Hindu Community ever raised a little finger against making our Temples a milking cow for the Governments. Now time has changed, Temple Resources belongs to the deva and no one will be allowed to exploit it.
