Preah Vihear Shiva Temple
Nevada (US), July 19: Welcoming the International Court of Justice (ICJ) decision on demilitarizing Preah Vihear Hindu temple on Thailand-Cambodia border, the Hindus have urged international organizations to urgently undertake its restoration work.
ICJ, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations established in 1945, in its decision at Hague (Netherlands) on July 18, reportedly found out that both Parties (Cambodia and Thailand) must immediately withdraw their military personnel currently present in the provisional demilitarized zone defined by it, and refrain from any military presence within that zone and from any armed activity directed at that zone, to ensure that no irreparable damage was caused. There were skirmishes between both countries in the earlier part of the year reportedly causing damage to this Shiva temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Esteemed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) on Monday, said that demilitarization of the temple area would probably avoid the risk of further damage to the ancient Hindu shrine.
Zed, who is the president of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed that international community, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) should immediately provide funding and manpower for restoring this Lord Shiva temple back to its original shape.
These organizations should not shy away to shoulder their responsibility of saving the important heritage of the world and respecting the feelings of Hindus worldwide, he added.
Besides temple repairs, some infrastructure in the area should also be provided for devotees and other visitors, he said.
Zed pointed out that this landmark age-old and revered Hindu temple complex in Preah Vihear province of Cambodia, about 245 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, was important to Hindu heritage and must be preserved to pass it on to the future generations. Damage and deterioration of 11th century Shiva temple was shocking and hurtful to the Hindu community world over.
Lord Shiva, one of the major deities in Hinduism forming great triad with Brahma and Vishnu, was focus of worship of the Hindus, and it was important for them that Preah Vihear Hindu Shiva temple be protected and restored. It was moral duty of the world to keep it intact for the coming generations, he added.
Known as Preah Vihear in Cambodia and Khao Phra Viharn in Thailand, this remote temple had been a source of tension for generations. Preah Vihear was said to even predate Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple complex by about 100 years and its stunning setting made it finest of all the ruins left from the mighty Khmer civilization, Zed said.

LAHORE: The Sikh community in Lahore have been prevented from observing a religious celebration at a gurdwara, their musical equipment thrown out and their entry barred, after a religious group persuaded the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) that celebrating the Muslim holy day of Shab-e-Barat was more important than the Sikh religious festival.
Police have been deployed outside the temple to prevent the Sikhs from conducting their religious ceremonies until the end of Shab-e-Barat, which falls on July 18 this year. The Sikh community wanted to commemorate an eighteenth-century saint on July 16.
The Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh, in Naulakha Bazaar, Lahore, is built to honour the memory of a Sikh saint who was executed in 1745 on the orders of the Mughal governor of Punjab, Zakaria Khan. Every July, the Sikh community has held religious ceremonies to commemorate his sacrifice in the service of humanity.
Bhai Taru Singh was executed in 1745 on the orders of a Muslim Governor.
While the temple was taken over by the ETPB after Partition, the Sikh community had been allowed to continue using it with relatively few restrictions.
Until four years ago.
It was then that a gang of young men from the Dawat-e-Islami, a Barelvi proselytising group, claimed that the gurdwara was located on the site of the burial place of a fifteenth century Muslim saint, Pir Shah Kaku. The group claims that Kaku was the grandson of Baba Fariduddin Ganjshakar, an implausible claim since Ganjshakar died in 1280, while they claim that Kaku died almost 200 years later, in 1477.
The Sikh community had approached the ETPB, which had then allowed both communities to observe their religious rituals according to their own beliefs at the temple. The group used it every Thursday for prayer services while the Sikh community used it once a year for the anniversary of Taru Singh’s martyrdom.
This year, however, when young men from the Sikh community went in to set up their musical instruments on July 13, they were thrown out by the men from Dawat-e-Islami and prevented from re-entering.
Members of the Sikh community, many of whom fear to be identified, said that the leader of the group of men, Sohail Butt, claimed that the temple was now a mosque and that they would not be allowed to bring in their musical instruments any more.
Butt admitted to preventing the Sikhs from performing their ritual, claiming that the temple was inside the courtyard of the mosque.
“Shab-e-Barat is more important than the Sikh ritual,” Butt said, adding that the ETPB had accepted his group’s stance.
Officials from the ETPB admit that they have asked the Sikh community to postpone their celebrations until after Shab-e-Barat.

Jammu, July 10 (IANS) Less than two weeks into the annual Amarnath pilgrimage 2011, more than 230,000 pilgrims have visited the cave shrine till Sunday and many more are on their way, shrine board officials said.
Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) CEO R.K. Goyal said pilgrims were using both the tracks in north and south Kashmir to shrine to Lord Shiva, located at the height of 13,500 feet above sea level. The cave shrine houses an ice stalagmite formation that is believed to be a symbol of the deity.
‘Till Sunday noon, 2.34 lakh pilgrims have visited the shrine,’ he said, in a press release.
The number comes despite the number of suspensions of the pilgrimage, that started on June 29, because of hostile weather, rains and slippery tracks and jams on the highway and tracks leading to the shrine.
According to estimates if the current flow of the pilgrims continued, the number would cross more than half a million. About 475,000 pilgrims had paid obeisance at the shrine last year.
The pilgrimage is scheduled to conclude on Raksha Bandhan Day (Aug 13).

Sree Padmanabha Temple and Kanchi Seer
Sree Padmanabha Temple treasures belong to Travancore royal family : Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.

The Golden Padmanabha of Sree Padmanabha Temple of Thiruvananthapuram
Kanchipuram (TN), 5 th July 2011. Negated any other option, the Kanchi Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi stated that the huge treasures, near Rupees 100000 crores in current valuation as found in Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple in Thiruvananthapuram were the “exclusive property” of Travancore royal family that dedicated their kingdom to the presiding deity of the temple.
“”For long the erstwhile royal family was the custodian of the temple and they dedicted their kingdom to Lord Sree Padmanabhaswamy.The treasures were offerings made by erstwhile rulers to the temple, hence the recoveries belonged to the royal family”, he told PTI here.
“However, the treasures should be kept in the temple cellars itself”, he said.
The cellars of the temple, closed for several decades, were ordered to be opened by the Supreme Court to prepare inventory while considering a private petition recently.
The deity of Padmanabha Swami Temple is the family deity of Travancore royal family. Members of the erstwhile royal family had dedicated their kingdom to the deity and pledged that they will live as servants of Padmanabha. The Shrine is run by a trust floated by the Travnacore royal house.Vast collection of gold, silver, precious stones and priceless jewellery were discovered in the cellars of the temple while preparing the inventory.” [e PTI News].
Sankaracharya Jayendra Saraswathi of Kanchi Kamkoti Peetham hinted the tradition of Sanatana Bharat, where the many ancient Hindu Kingdoms were operated by the King under the dictum of the Guru (Mentor-Path Finder)and as a servant of the People and People’s God. The people and the King of Travnacore enriched this ancient temple as the richest Hindu Deity in this world so far.
The Travancore royal family did follow the tradition to be the servant of Lord Padmanabh here. Sankaracharya of Kanchi Mutth reminded the glorious past of Hindu dynasty of King Janaka under the blessings of Saint Yagyavalkya, King Vikramaditya under the teachings of Kautilya, King Harihar and Bukku with the inspiration of Vidyaranya Swami or Chatrapati Shivaji offered everything to Devi Bhavani and Samrath Guru Ramdas Swami.
The Sankaracharya vehemently opposed the present Govt.’s attitude to denounce the Sanatana Hindu Dharma by some of its key functionaries in Congress and the tendency to grab Temple Properties of Hindus through an unprecedented pro-activeness for the last 10 years.
The Kanchi seer advocated in favour of keeping the unearthed 100000 crore treasury as temple property under the sacred authority of Travancore royal family.
Undoubtedly, decedents of this Kingdom think themselves as the servant of Lord Padmanabha and they did not stashed any thing out side the Temples or in any Swiss Bank. Actually, the British snatched many things invaluable for Britain from India. One stone harmonium of this Padmanabha Temple was transported by the British to Britain illegally.
The world famous Kohinoor Diamond was also grabbed by the English Men near Agra, when it was being trasported to Lord Jagannath of Puri by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, after he understood the possible aggression of the Brtish rulers throuhout India. [eAgencies]

Sri Sri Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra or Chariot festival of Jagannath Puri is one of the largest religious ceremonies in Bharat (India) and the world too. Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra dates on 3rd July , Sunday, this year 2011. Puri Rath Yatra commemorates the significant journey of Lord Krishna from Gokula to Mathura. This annual festival is celebrated on Ashad Shukla Dwitiya (second day in bright fortnight of Ashad month).
As a part of Rath Yatra, the sacred wooden idols Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Mother Subhadra are taken out from the sanctum sanctorum of world famous Puri Jagannath temple in a large procession of millions to the Gundcha Temple and remain there for nine days. In three separate Chariots, eye balls of the devotees complete their journey in phases capturing all attentions for more than 8 hours. Then the deities are returned again to the Puri Jagannath temple through a Return Charriot Yatra (Ultto Ratha) after observing certain rituals. The return journey in Puri is also known as Bahuda Yatra.
For the rath yatra, three huge chariots – each with about a dozen wheels up to 7 feet in diameter – are ritually pulled through the streets, from the Jagannath temple to the temple of Gundicha Mandir. The Raths are replicas of the Jagannath temple and each of them carries an idol – of Jagannath in Nandighosa Ratha, of his brother Balbhadra in Taladhwaja Ratha and his sister Subhadra in Dwarpadalana Ratha.

It is believed that the rebirth cycle is ceased as one sees the Lord in his Charriot at Puri Ratha Yatra. “Rathapori Vamanm dristva Punarjanma na vidyatee”…..

Rs. 50,000 cr worth treasure in Kerala temple
Ananthakrishan G, TNN | Jul 2, 2011, 12.11am IST | Courtesy : TOI.
'Ananth Shayan Vishnu' as seen in the Padmanabha Temple
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The legend of El Dorado was definitely not set on the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple. But the seven-member panel, which is drawing up a list of assets at the famed shrine here, had a feel of the lost city of gold as they set foot in one of the two secret vaults located inside the sprawling granite structure which gives the Kerala capital its name.
On Thursday, the team assisted by personnel from the fire services and archeology department opened the locks of vault A to find a narrow flight of stairs leading down to an underground granite cellar. Oxygen was pumped frequently into the chamber and artificial lighting provided to enable the observers to work inside.
Image :Sree Padmanabh Swamy
What they saw inside was startling, sources said. Gold coins dating back thousands of years, gold necklaces as long as nine feet and weighing about 2.5 kg, about one tonne of the yellow metal in the shape of rice trinkets, sticks made of the yellow metal, sack full of diamonds, gold ropes, thousands of pieces of antique jewellery studded with diamonds and emeralds, crowns and other precious stones lay scattered in the chamber marked ‘A’.
Friday threw up far more surprises in the form of 17 kg of gold coins dating back to the East India
Company period, 18 coins from Napolean’s era, precious stones wrapped in silk bundles besides over 1,000 kg of gold in the form of coins and trinkets and a small elephant made of the yellow metal, sources said.
The vetta/arattu processions of the devotees
There were also sovereigns bearing the 1772 seal indicating they were from the reign of the then native king Karthika Thirunal Rama Varma. There are a total of six vaults marked A to F in the shrine. The A and B cellars have never opened since 1872.
Reports said the value of the recoveries so far from vault A alone may exceed over Rs 50,000 crore. This doesn’t take into account their antique value. With chamber B, yet to be opened, speculation was rife that the shrine would pip Tirupati Balaji, who too has been assessed at a little more than Rs 50,000 crore to a distant second. No official confirmation has been forthcoming on the value of the recoveries.
Devotees thronged to see their Lord
Retired Kerala high court judges — Justice M N Krishnan and Justice C S Rajan — appointed observers by the Supreme Court said, ”It’s difficult to give an exact date about when the stock-taking would be completed. The B and E vaults remain to be opened. We think it may take another week.”
Asked about the value of the assets, Justice Krishnan said the committee was drawing up the inventory of items and were not determining their price. The panel had set out on the job on June 27 and opened three vaults marked C, D and F till Wednesday. Assets found in these chambers were estimated to be worth over Rs 1,000 crore.
The wealth discovery has raised questions on the shrine’s security. As of now, the internal security is managed by the temple employees, but this may be inadequate in the light of the events.
GOD’S OWN WEALTH
* Gold coins dating back thousands of years, gold necklaces as long as 9 feet and weighing 2.5 kg; one tonne of gold in the shape of rice trinkets; sticks made of gold, sack full of diamonds, gold ropes and thousands of pieces of jewellery studded with diamonds and emeralds.…………………….
* 17 kg of gold coins dating back to the East India Company period; 18 coins from Napolean’s era, precious stones wrapped in silk bundles besides over 1,000 kg of gold in form of coins and trinkets and a small elephant made of gold.
* The value of recoveries from vault A alone may exceed over Rs 50,000 cr. With chamber B yet to be opened, speculation is rife the shrine would pip Tirupati Balaji’s assets, which too has been assessed at over Rs 50,000 crore.

Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati, Assam.
Guwahati : Cops defuse powerful bomb on Kanchenjunga Express, avert tragedy at Hindu Pilgrimage.
Somi S Mohanta || Siliguri, 17th June 2011
Defusing the Bomb at Guwahati Railway Station
To frighten the Hindu pilgrimage for abstaining from gathering in the yearly congregation of Ambubachi Festival at ancient Kamakhya Temple near Guwahati in Assam, most probably the Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) had their definite planning to finish hundreds of Hindus this time. At the same time anti-talk factions of ULFA and NDFB are also under the scanner for such subversive activities who have been continuously defying the Indian sovereignty in the North East India. Kamakhya Temple is considered as a Shakti Peeth of 51 Shakti Peeth in the North East India. Lakhs of hindu devotees come to Kamakhya in the occasion of Ambubachi Mela every year.
Hundreds of passengers of the Sealdah-Guwahati Kanchenjunga Express had a miraculous escape on Friday morning after a powerful IED placed inside one of the reserved compartments was detected and diffused by police well in time at Kamakhya Station near Guwahati. By the blessings of Devi Mata, lives of some 1100 devotees were saved miraculously. The IED device could not effective in time. Most probably the Islamists wanted a Quranic treatment of Kaffirs through a blast and fire-works on Jumma day (Friday) to celebrate the win of maximum numbers of Muslim MLA s in Assam Assembly as sponsored by United Muslim Force of Badaruddin Azmal Attarwala.
A team of Government Railway Police detected a suspicious bag on seat number 22 of coach S5 when the crowded train entered the Guwahati railway station after an overnight journey from Sealdah in West Bengal. The GRP personnel found no owner for the bag and on opening it found a milk can that was tightly wrapped around by small ropes.
According to the police the IED weighed around four kilogram was fitted with a programmable time device. There were also three detonators and splinters inside the bomb. The bomb was disposed off by a bomb disposal squad of special branch of Assam police after few minutes of its recovery in the morning.
Police said the personnel on duty in the train noticed an unattended small, but heavy bag on empty seat no. 22 in S-5 reserved coach at Kamakhya railway station near Guwahati.
“As nobody claimed the bag at Guwahati railway station, where the train arrived at 5.20 am, the GRP personnel suspecting it to be a bomb evacuated about 1,100 passengers on board it and the crowded platform,” they said. The train was 45 minutes behind schedule.
Assam Police IGP (operations) Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta said, ” We are yet to ascertain as to who could be behind the planting of the IED inside the train. We are also examining the fact the train had come through lower Assam.” The prime suspects are the anti-talk factions of Ulfa and National Democratic Front of Boroland. The lower Assam area through which the train passed has the presence of mostly the NDFB faction. NDFB has now its connectivity with both the Christian militants and the MULTA counterpart as a strategy of power sharing of this region.
Officer –in-charge of the police station of Guwahati railway station, Dhrubajyoti Hazarika said that police have intensified security systems in and around the station. “We received special directives from our senior officers few days before to check every coach with utmost care before the Ambubachi festival. There are inputs that some militants may plant explosives to create panic before the Ambubachi festival in the city.”
A high alert has been sounded across the state following the detection of the powerful bomb which was a programmable time device (PTD) weighing 4 to 5 kgs and it could have caused a major explosion, GRP sources said.
The Assam based insurgency is receiving green colour in texture. A portion of Baruas in Assam have been converted to Islam and helping the Islamic supremacists. Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) has been running more than 200 terrorist camps/hide outs in Assam valley to strength its own set up and to throw out all Hindus from Assam at any cost. They have a major plan to make this land as part of United Islamic Bangladesh.
Jamat Ali, Islamist, MULTA
The Police and Para-Military have recently cracked the conspiracy against the Assam Hindus by MULTA Terrorists as the army entrapped a militant mastermind belonging to Muslim United Liberation Tigers of Assam (MULTA) during a joint operation at Phutimari village in Kamrup district of Assam on Sunday last. The militant has been identified as Jamat Ali, carrying an one 12 Bore single barrel gun, a china made automatic revolver, a crude bomb weighing two kilogram and some improvised detonators to run further havoc over Hindus. MULTA has the strategy to curve out blasts, shoot out, un-noticed rioting over communal issues on Fridays in Assam in Hindu religious places and especially Hindu populated areas, as apprehended.

Muslim perpetrators find chances to attack Hindu Temples and Saints in the “Change” scenario. Bengal Media indifferent.
Titu Bharti in Durgapur || While the auspicious ceremony of “Paribartan – Change” in Bengal, as claimed by the majority for this in the 2011 election here is being celebrated, in reality, West Bengal is located 2011 km away from democracy and rights for Hindus, as the course of Islamization of this province is in its ultimate state, which has been proved once again in the territory, as before in the Left Front regime of the predecessors.
Again an asthana of Baba Fakirananda and a small Hindu Temple of Bajrangbali (Bagrangbali Ashram) have been smashed by the Muslim hooligans for capturing the temple land in the Durgapur area of Burdwan Districts. Danik Jagaran reported in its Asansole edition on 23rd May, 2011 that a group of 15-20 Musalman Mastan (hooligans) came to attack the Ashram place on 21st Saturday night after an altercation with some locale, may be as a plotting for the night attack. The priest of that Bajrangbali temple, Baba Fakirananda and Sadhvi Anima were assaulted, abused and the pictures of the Hindu deities were torn and the murthies (idols) of Bajragvali and Lord Shiva were desecrated and destroyed by the Muslim attackers with a least resistance of 2-3 inmates of the Devastthan. The Muslim culprits severely injured one Bhola, a resident and sympathizer of the Ashram, who came to protest against the temple attack by the outsiders. This Hanuman Temple and akhara of Baba Fakirananda has become a place of Puja-Path ( Hindu Rituals) by the local Hindus remarkably with due veneration .
As per report, a complaint was lodged by the ashramites in the Kokoben Police Station in the Benachiti area of Durgapur Municipal Corporation. Though demanded a hasty arrest of the perpetrators, no justice could be possible in favor of the aggrieved Hindus and against the Muslim perpetrators as this areas come under the whip of Trinamool leader and MLA MD. Maloy Ghatak, who is adorned as the Law Ministry of West Bengal presently for his Muslim appeasement and support at an umpteen skill. It is heard that Md. Ghatak gave her daughter to a rich Muslim family through an arranged marriage.
The report of this silent attack upon Hindus and Hindu Temple came only in Danik Jagran and the silence of the whole media is bound to raise unanswerable questions. Certainly we found the names of the perpetrators in case of the domestic violence. Fine, but why the perpetrators were not punished even by the mighty pens of media? They can name the man who was beaten up, despite the goons were not “identified” by our highly vigilant media.
The media persons perhaps just think, it’s the handiwork of just some antisocial elements But they never think, why should they tear the picture of Hindu God Bajrangbali , why should they demolish his deity? Why this attack upon Hindu Temple and Ashram? Unless they were preparing to become Ghazi (idol breakers or the killer of a Kaffir), they were not so ruthless and tragic to the disbelievers.
A source so closed to the attackers told us the names of the goons who even took the pain to tour to Durgapur from Asansol, of course to be certified as Ghazi. One of the boys is namely Saifulla Khan, son of a giant antisocial of Asansol under alias of a businessman having a bog shop named “Paramount”. This Saifulla is operating from Asansol to harm hundreds over the Hindus in the locality and even in the remote areas of Burdwan as sources told so far.
Second one comes from the offspring of the owner of “Israil Fashion” that funded Pakistani Intruders with a huge sum of 12 Crore during Kargil War, as a cross border aid from Bangladeshi talibans, creating a debate then. This shop was the third most visited cloth store after B N GHANTY and MOHAN CLOTH STORE in Asansol. In retaliation the Hindus economically boycotted the store or that time and it was almost dragged on footpath. But the Muslim community helped them for their bad times and the masters and managers of Asansol wiped out the matter as no action was taken on them on political coverage. The name of Touhid Hossian is also surfaced for the involvement in this temple attack.
When this is the case of Temple attack in Burdwan and specially in Durgapur, Bengal media should not be blamed for “not to publish the name of the deadly goons from a particular community”. They are all only loyal to the Muslim Minorities. This is branded as “Courageous Journalism” to promote fundamental Islam. Actually, this doesn’t mean anything in their profile.
These types of attack upon Bajrangbali Temple or protest over Bajrangbali Murthi (idol) installation were recorded in Panchala (Howrah), Budge Budge (South 24 Pgs) and some places in West Bengal very unfortunately within last one year.
Hindu Existence observes : * The rate of attack by Hindu common people in rural areas in Bengal are increasing day by day. ** The permission of Hindu local rituals (sravajanin pujas) are not given smoothly by the police and administrations. *** The Hindu girls and women are victimized grossly by the other religions in the covering of Love Jihad. **** Permission and Selling of Raw beefs in Hindu areas and mixed areas are growing to hurt the Hindu sentiments. ***** Capturing or attacking upon Hindu Temple, Hindu lands are gaining political supports. ****** Outsiders and Non Hindu communities are being settled in road sides and Railway stations in the name new habitation or business undermining the Local Hindus. WE ARE WATCHING ALL THESE, OUR NEW CM IN WEST BENGAL !!!

In search of granite, path to Choryo Durga’s temple blown up with dynamite. Muslim Stone-crushing firm continues Temple ruining activities despite Sindh government’s ban on leases; Hindus protest, pro-muslim officials express ignorance…….
A great inspiration for reluctant Indian Hindus. Minority Hindus in Pakistan are giving a great fight to stop temple demolition. Most respectful Salutaion from Hindu Existence.
Durga temple faces destruction in Pakistan
Tahir Ali in Rediff News posted 11th March, 2011 along with news snippets from Zee Tv.
Perhaps this beautiful Durga idol may not be seen in this Temple in near future
The demolition of Hindu temples in Pakistan for the construction of parks, schools etc is a common phenomenon in Pakistan.
In the latest such incident, some contractors have started digging granite stones at the base of a hill, on top of which a historical Temple of Durga Mata is located, in Sindh district. Despite opposition by local Hindus, the digging work is going ahead and the temple may be completely demolished within a month.
The company began excavating a hill near the Durga Mata temple in Choryo village of Tharparkar district with heavy machinery and dynamite about a month ago.
War footing digging in granite rocks threats the natural balance
Local residents said contractor Abdullah Qureshi was given control of the hill on lease by the Sindh government.
Qureshi is “busy blasting through huge chunks of the hill at the bottom of the temple to extract granite while the pilgrims watch on in horror,” the report said.
The excavation was launched as pilgrims from Nepal, India and other countries came to the temple to attend the annual ‘Sardaro mela’ in February, The Express Tribune newspaper reported.
The ‘yatris’ or pilgrims found that the path leading to the temple was destroyed.
“Pieces of rock were scattered all around and heavy machinery loomed ominously and silently nearby,” the report said.
The three-day Shivratri mela that began on February 2 became an occasion for protests by local residents.
The authority allowed the granite digging company without any provision to protect the age old Sindh Durga Mata Temple
The ancient temple is located on top of a hill in Nagarparkar in Tharparkar district of Sindh. A number of Hindu and Jain temples are located in Nagarparkar and its surrounding areas. Most of them date back to 2,000 to 2,500 years.
Instead of trying to put a stop to the digging activity, the Sindh government has issued a lease to a contractor to carry out the work.
Veerjhi Kohli, caretaker of the temple, told “The way the work of blasting is going on, the temple will be demolished within a month. The hill (on which the temple is located) is going to be dug up from all sides, how will the temple survive? The demolition of the temple shows how helpless Hindus living in Pakistan are.”
Veerjhi added, “Some two lakh pilgrims visited the Durga Mata temple during Shivratri. The pilgrims had protested the destruction and urged the government to stop the work, but to no avail. The work was halted during the festival but now it has resumed again.”
The Pakistani media also doesn’t highlight the destruction of temples, laments Veerjhi, adding that it doesn’t focus on the plight of Hindus in the country.
“Neither any TV channel nor any leading newspaper reported our protests. After such incidents, we Hindus feel alienated in Pakistan,”
Hindu activists have approached local political figures and other concerned authorities but none of them have offered to help. “We were shocked by the district coordination officer’s remark, who said the temple was safe and there was no risk to it from the digging,” Veerjhi said.

Bangladeshi Hindus in shock as worship at temple suspended, property rights disputed, Hindu population declined, persecution goes on……..
Upananda Brahamachari || Hindu Existence Review : Though a big doldrums already came from the minority Hindus from the measures so far taken by the present so-called pro-minority Bangladesh Awami League Govt. led by Sheikh Hasina through a shattered election promises to them, accumulated pressure from various sides upon the Hindu minorities now may return them in the fearful days under the BNP-Jamat combination for the last clot.
No retrieval for the safety and security for the persecuted Hindus in Bangaldesh as a landmark so far made by this so called secular Govt of Awami combination, nor the change in a theocratic constitution (Islamic Republic of Bangladesh) for a real Secular Democracy without the “Almighty Allah”, or the proper settlement of property for the evacuated Bangladeshi Hindus including their re-settlements, the increasing rate of loosing lands by the minorities under the loot by Muslim fundamentalists in every corner of Bangladesh or nothing remarkable can tell us the good days for Bangladeshi Hindus with a dignified social, economical and political status in future.
A CID officer carries out a thorough search at Dhakeshwari National Temple in the capital on Sunday to collect evidence following a daring robbery of about 200 tolas of gold ornaments at the temple
On the other hand, the jaunty Islamists of Bangladesh are now in full swing to invade the Hindu temples including looting stealthily the national temple of Bangladesh like Dhakeswari Temple which has a heritage status.
Reports revel that :
“Hindus in Bangladesh are in shock following the suspension of worship at the capital’s Dhakeshwari National Temple, the most important place of worship for the minority community in the country, after a theft on Sun Jan 09 2011.
Gold (About 200 bhori – 1 Bhori = 0.34 ounce) ornaments, and silver ornaments (five-six bhori) and Taka 4.5 lakh have been stolen from the temple, said Tapan Bhattacharya, the in-charge of the state-owned Dhakeshwari Temple.
Worship at the ancient Dhakeswari National Temple has been suspended for an indefinite period following the theft, the private bdnews24 online reported today.
Known as the ‘National Temple’, Dhakeshwari means “Goddess of Dhaka”.
Babul Devnath, the Secretary of Dhaka Metropolitan Worship Committee, expressed deep concern over the incident as it was the third major temple where theft has taken place in less than a month. The Hindus in the country are in shock.
“A theft took place at Baradeswari Kali Temple on December 12 and another at Jaykali Temple on December 22. We demand proper investigations into all these incidents,” he was quoted as saying in the report.
Bhattacharya said Ratan Chakrawarty and Nitya Gopal Chakrawarty, the priets at Dhakeswari, had locked the temple around 9 p.m. on Saturday.
Around 6 a.m. today they found three of the four locks missing, while the remaining one was broken.
Mohammad Khurshid Alam, the Deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police, said they had launched a probe into the theft.
Hinduism is the second largest religion in the country, constituting nearly 10 per cent of the population.
There are over 12 lakh Hindus in Bangladesh.”
Though some minority forums like HRCBM (Human Rights Congress for Bangladesh Minorities), BDMW (Bangladesh Minority Watch), BHBCUC (Bangladesh Hindu Bauddha Christian Unity Council-USA) and others are trying hard to address the constraints before Hindus as an existential threat and put their demands to the respective Govts, in Bangladesh time to time, the general scenario for the trailing Hindus go worse day by day.
A recent report of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics (BBS) and National Institute of Population Research and Training (NIPRT) reveals that Hindu population has been decreased in Bangladesh region by 24% as it was 31% in 1901 and stands at a meager 9.3% in the latest census of Bangladesh. The report pointed the salient causes of onslaught of minority Hindus due to post election violence in 2001 in recent caused a mass evacuation of Hindus from their homeland and compelled to leave the country under the tantamount pressure of ransom, infringing religious rights, destruction of their properties, encroaching lands, physical torture, arson, molestation, rape, abduction, even pressurised conversion and so on. In such strangulation the reproduction rates of Hindus in Bangladesh came down and the immigration rates are high.
From another source it is evident that some 100 destruction of temples and over 300 registered cases of abduction-molestation-rape of Hindu women and minor girls earmarked 2010 as hopeless situation also from the new vendors of secularism in Bangladesh.
This kind of shameless burglary in a highest Hindu Temple declared as “Sree Sree Dhakeswari Jatiyo Mandir” (National Temple) amidst a high security police arrangements created much confusion in all quarters including a bitter repercussion throughout Bangladeshi Hindus and also in neighboring India.
Senior reporter Mr. Basudev Dhar of Danik Statesman, Kolkata reports in its first page from Dhaka that the burglary was so designed only to harass the minorities in Bangladesh. The Temple authority has already covered the front of deity with a white cloth and suspended the formal puja for an indefinite period as a protest. Meantime the daily puja shall be made through the rituals before a ‘holy pitcher’. The Hindu minority leaders of Bangladesh including the Co-ordination Committee of Bangladesh Sarbajonin Durgotsav jointly declared a ‘human-chain’ programme on Wednesday on in every where in Bangladesh as a mark of protest. Hindu leaders of Bangladesh have vehemently criticized the inaction of the present Govt. to take proper action to protect the property, prosperity and dignity of Hindu minorities in Bangladesh. They pointed out the every onslaught upon the Hindus in Bangladesh aiming to drive them away by hook or crook.
The Deputy Home Minister of Bangladesh Samsul Haque Tuku (Awami League) visited the Dhakeswari temple today on 10th January, 2010 and assured the prompt arrest of the culprit behind the burglary. The local BNP leader Mirza Fakhrul Islam also visited the temple and expressed his utter dissatisfaction about the present Govt. so that the burglars be-fooled the state police contingencies then on duty at the temple premises.
Minority Hindus in Bangladesh suspect a nefarious connection between the state police, intelligence and the culprits as they all belong to majority Muslim community. So far the Police and Intelligence in Bangladesh is completely failure to trace out the burglary cases in Bradeswari Kali Temple (Rajar Bag), Jay kali Temple (Wari) and four other old temples in Narayngunj.
The pity minority Hindus in Bangladesh have to tolerate all these Islamic persecution.

I bleed…. I bleed !! seeing all these scenes. Islamic demons have captured RSS, BJP, Bajrang, all of them. Better, I expired before seeing all these. Please send many emails and catch them in telephones and mobiles in RSS/BJP/SriRamSene HQs. And ask them how many Mosques and Churches are razed to ground till now. All these are tricks of Christians and Muslims to destroy a huge numbers of temples in India and protect their worship places under minority rights. And all these are happening in Bangalore, India under the regime of a BJP Government.
And it is unbelievable that the big brothers of Hindu brigade in India are doing ultimate harms of Hindus in India. SHAME ON RSS/VHP/Bajrang Dal other Mum Hindu Organizations.
Please stop the bulldozering upon Hindu Temples and react to spoil the anti-Hindu verdict of the Indian Supreme Court accordingly.
Nobody cares for the Supreme Court verdict for hanging of Afzal Guru, Muslim spate on the verdict of Sahabano case and Karnataka BJP Government jumped over the issue of demolition of Hindu Temples. Bravo ! Well done!!
Hello, Manyabar Mohan Bhagawatji, Pravin Togadiaji, Vinay Katiyarji, Acharya Dharmendraji, Swadvi Rwitamvarji, Uma Bharatiji, Promod Muthalikji, Govindacharyaji, Indresji – all fire-brand Hindutva leaders of present day India- Jai Sree Ram ! Can you please here me through here. Please do not consider it much valuable for your own thinking and organization over the common interest of decaying Hindus. Hindus and their temples, society, dignities, counts all are being finished one by one and you will survive, OK.
Just one Ananthraman told me today in the morning that Bangalore is a stronghold city of Hindus. Then what is going on in Bangalore and Karnataka under BJP control? Are the Hindus of Bangalore in their winter-sleep ?
BJP Govt. in Karnataka to demolish 5000 temples !
December 15, 2010 || Margashirsha Shukla Navami, KAliyug Varrsha 5112
Are the pro-Hindu organizations going to say something in protest or going to keep mum as usual ?
Bangalore (Karnataka): Karnataka Government will be demolishing 5000 so-called unauthorized places of worship as a measure to implement the order issued by the Supreme Court. The temples to be demolished are 5000 including 1213 temples, 55 mosques, 17 churches and 4 Gurudwaras from Bangalore District. In South Canara District, there are 640 temples, 151 mosques, 32 churches and 10 Gurudwaras proposed to be demolished whereas in Bangalore city, there are 442 temples, 38 mosques and 95 churches and in Ramnagar District, there are 3 temples proposed to be demolished.
In September 2009, the Supreme Court had issued an order to prepare a list of worship places built at public places which are to be demolished by 31st December 2010. The Government has demolished more than 100 temples till now. (The Supreme Court has so far passed many verdicts in the interest of the nation and people; but none of the verdicts has been so promptly implemented; an example of the same is death sentence given to Mohammad Afzal. Some of the verdicts passed by the Supreme Court like in Shahabano case, was changed so as not to hurt minorities; then why the Government is showing such promptness in demolishing temples? It is only because Hindus are not united that the Government suppresses their sentiments ! – Editor SP)

Ayodhya peaceful on 18th Vijay anniversary for the demolition of Babri Structure to build a Magnificent Ramlala Temple at Ram Janma Bhoomi.
Ayodhya peaceful on 18th Babri anniversary
Ayodhya:6th Dec.: Saffron outfits vowed to construct a grand Ram temple at the disputed site while Muslims prayed for building a mosque as the 18th anniversary of the razing of the Babri shrine passed off peacefully in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.
Amid tight security, VHP and Bajrang Dal held separate functions in twin cities of Faizabad and Ayodhya and took vows for building a Ram temple at the disputed site. Muslims observed the day as “yom-e-gam” (day of grief) and prayed for reconstruction of the Babri mosque.
They also unfurled black flags at a mosque in Beniganj to express anguish over the demolition of the Babri shrine on this day in 1992. VHP leaders, including former MP Ram Vilas Vedanti, took part in “Hanuman Chalisa” recital at Kar Sewakpuram. No untoward incident was reported from any place in Uttar Pradesh on the 18th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri mosque, officials said. PAC, Rapid Action Force and police were deployed in strength, especially in vulnerable places, to ensure peace. Round-the-clock vigil was kept at all points leading to Ayodhya-Faizabad, the officials said. Thirteen Hindu Mahasabha activists were arrested for violating prohibitory orders in Faizabad, they said adding all of them were later released.
Togadia wants law for building Ram temple in Ayodhya
18th anniversary of Babri destruction for restoration of the Hindu dignity by building a Grand Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple.
Hindu Existence News | Dec. 6th 2010 | Lacknow : Uttar Pradesh : India | Hindu Activists remember the sacrifice all 1000000 martyrs for the liberation of Ram Janma Bhoomi ( birth place of lord Rama)at Ayodhya, since a military general of Mughal emperor Babur captured that holy place of Hindus and destructed the old temple in 1528 AD.
While some parts of Hyderabad, Lacknow and other Muslim influenced areas remained shut on Monday in response to a call given by Muslim organizations to mark the 18th anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on Dec. 6th 1992, the Hindu organizations observed this day in this year with a festive mood as the recent verdict of designated court accepted the historic view supporting a certain existence of old temple before the disputed mosque structure erected there forcefully.
Hindus prayed to their Lord Rama to shift the hurdles for an early clearance in all respect in the higher judiciary from the arm-twisting of litigant sides so that their desired Ram Temple can be established and also paid homage to all souls so sacrificed for their battle of Ram Janma Bhoomi.
Muslims put black badges on their shirts to mark it as a protest against Indian Judiciary and are being united to launch a nation-wide agitation to get back a Babri Mosque in Ayodhya again as a Muslim supremacy over the majority Hindus as existed in Mughal period in India.
In this year RSS-VHP have launched a nation-wide Hanumat Shakti Jagaran programme to boost up Ram Janma Bhoomi Temple movement to set its final phase for the construction of the Temple by defeating any challenges in all quarters. Thousands of Hanumat Shakti Jagaran Programmes have been organized successfully all over the country.

G.S. RADHAKRISHNA || THE TELEGRAPH KOLKATA
Tirumala, Nov. 10: Humans have set the gold standard for the lord of riches — the Tirupati temple authorities have decided that Venkateswara will henceforth be decked out only in jewellery that meets specifications laid down by them.
I.Y.R. Krishna Rao, the executive officer of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam, said only genuine diamonds and rare jewellery would do. “Anyone who wants to donate ornaments to the lord will be asked to consult us before preparing the ornament of their choice. TTD officials will advise them on the size, variety and weight of their ornament,” he said.
The decision was taken yesterday. Last year, a controversy had erupted over the temple accepting a 30kg diamond-studded crown worth Rs 42 crore from Karnataka tourism minister Gali Janardhan Reddy. Vedic pandits and scholars objected to its use, saying the heavy crown could damage the 19ft black granite idol of the presiding deity, which is described as “Mula Virat”. Chief priest A.V. Ramana Dikshitulu said today only properly designed and manufactured jewellery helped to retain the charm and divine powers of the deity.
“The Agama shastras say which of the jewels have to be used on specific occasions, days and months for the deity,” he said. Govindaswamy Chettiar, a prominent jeweller of Chennai engaged in the Venkateswara temple gold plating programme, said “it is essential to test and verify the jewellery before it is put on the deity as many diamonds and jewellery are said to have an evil impact even on gods”.
Chettiar claimed that a wrong “keeratam” (crown) on a deity at a temple at Tiruttanni in Tamil Nadu had led to the shrine’s gradual unpopularity. Only after the gold ornament was removed did the temple regain its glory, he said.
Nirmala Goud, a devotee, said the temple decision was laudable but would deny devotees the satisfaction that they were also partners in adorning their deity.
Tirumala is the richest religious shrine in the world with an annual revenue of Rs 1,200 crore and gold reserves of almost 250kg that are made up of small ornaments thrown in the hundi.
On an average, the temple receives about 2kg of gold in the hundi every day. Apart from the small ornaments, Tirumala owns nearly 12 tonnes of jewellery which includes rare and antique pieces donated since the 12th century by the Vijayanagara king Krishna Deva Raya, British viceroys, Muslim rulers and local Andhra chieftains.
A team of gemology experts has certified that all diamonds and precious stones in the ornaments used on a daily basis are authentic. Tirumala authorities had set up a gemology lab in 2009 inside the temple to value and test the antique jewellery on the orders of Andhra Pradesh High Court.
The registers of tiruvabharanam (temple treasury of jewellery) and jadthi (main safe box) at Tirupati contain about 1,100 ornaments. The gemology experts have verified 346 exclusive pieces studded with diamonds and precious gems and certified them as 100 per cent pure.
“The remaining jewels will also be put through the tests in the next few months,” said Rajiv Jain, the chairman of the Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council of India. The gemology committee includes experts from Surat, Jaipur and Mumbai and is headed by Jain. Jain said that the committee had used the Portable Raman Spectrometer for the first time in the country to verify the authenticity of the jewels.
The temple authorities are considering whether to insure the jewellery on its historical value or its metal value. “We are a philanthropic organisation and it is not worth paying huge premiums to insure it on historical value,” executive officer Krishna Rao said.
As part of the drive to secure the temple against terrorist threats, pilgrims have been barred from carrying luggage to the queue for darshan. Mobile phones and cameras are already banned. A team of 200 commandos and 1,000 policemen from five police stations guards the hill shrine.

Lighting Up the World with Diwali
By Anisa Fathima || Nov 5, 2010
It’s that time of the year when the sky outside my window bursts into myriad colours of sheer joy, when my voice is lost in the resonance of a hundred different sounds – a crescendo from the whiiiiissshhh of the ‘sur-sur kaddi’ to the bang-bang-bang of the bombs. And every time a rocket whizzes into the hazy air, I find myself praying it won’t enter my room.
For me the best part of Diwali has always been the late-night fireworks that some blessed soul in my neighbourhood (I don’t know who) spends on so generously. Come Diwali, and I find myself all ready with my camera trying to capture the splendid scene, and time and again cursing the stupid device for not being competitive enough to do justice to the vibrant display of hues. Red, green, golden, orange, blue…the array of colours put even Govinda to shame.
Being somewhat a chicken and with a pyrophobic kind of enmity with fire, I have been blissfully content with watching the Diwali celebrations from a distance – a big, safe distance, of say, five floors above ground level! Whatever the case, there’s no doubt that Diwali is a very special occasion for all, for many reasons, but mostly for simply the fact that at no other time of the year is the world so beautifully adorned and so colourfully lit as on Diwali.

Diwali lights up India
Press Trust Of India || New Delhi, November 05, 2010
Fireworks lit the sky and houses wore a festive look decorated with earthen lamps, flowers and multi-colour ‘rangolis’ across India on Diwali which also witnessed bonhomie along the Indo-Pak border where soldiers of the two countries exchanged sweets and dry fruits. It was fun and frolic all around in the festival of lights as children and youth burst crackers and lit fireworks while families visited their neighbours, exchanged ‘Happy Diwali’ greetings and sweets.
Youngsters also took the route of SMS and social networking websites to wish each other.
Diwali or Deepavali (row of lamps), according to Hindu belief, is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya from his exile after vanquishing demon-king Ravana.
The festivities reached a peak in the national capital and other parts of northern India where people decorated their homes and shops with colourful ‘rangolis’, flowers and lightings and lit ‘diyas’ or earthen lamps.
Indian and Pakistani troops deployed along the Line of Control exchanged sweets and dry fruits at Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The RSS has said the Ayodhya title suit judgement of the Allahabad high court offers a flicker of hope this Diwali after 482 years to rebuild the Ram temple at the site.
“The three-member bench in a historic judgment restored the holy Ramjanmabhoomi to Hindus…Hindus have been battling to restore the holy city and rebuild the Sri Ram temple,” Sangh mouthpiece Organiser said in its latest issue.
“This Deepavali, after 482 years, offers a flicker of hope to attain that goal,” it said.
The journal said till the day the judgment was pronounced, it had been a “long wait” for the Hindus who have “fought with abundant faith and unwavering patience..”
But it hastened to add that the matter was far from settled and it might take “many more years” as the title suit went on for six decades.
It claimed that the verdict brings Hindus closer to the final settlement.
