Josh Schrei helped me understand G-O-D (Generator-Operator-Destroyer) concept of the divine that is so pervasive in the Vedic tradition/experience. Quantum Theology by Diarmuid O'Murchu and Josh Schrei article compliments the spiritual implications of the new physics. Thanks so much Josh Schrei.

1,219 Hindu and Jain Temples Face Demolition in the Mangalore Area By Arun Shanghvi

1,219 Hindu and Jain Temples Face Demolition in the Mangalore Area

By Arun Shanghvi


A Hindu Temple being demolished by the Indian Government
Mangalore, India (CHAKRA) — The Supreme Court has stated that 1,201 Hindu and 17 Jain places of worship are currently under threat of being demolished because they are considered to be religious institutions that are located in public places and apparently fall under a list of unauthorized religious construction.

Mohan Gowda, Hindu Jana Jagruti Vedike spokesperson stated that the government has decided to go ahead with demolishing this large number of religious structures. 
The verdict of the Supreme Court clearly states that all religious structures that are built after December 7, 2009 must be demolished and most of these religious structures are Hindu temples across Mangalore.  With regards to those places of worship built before December 7, 2009–they will be examined case by case before a decision is made for whether they will become regularized structures, relocated or demolished. 

A very short notice has been given with no opportunity for appeal and the state government in its affidavit to the Supreme Court has agreed to clear all illegal religious structures by the end of this month. 
Gowda further stated that although the Supreme Court has allowed for temples that are over 30 years old to be regularized, the Karnataka government is simply seeking to demolish because the process of regularizing will be time consuming and not worth their time. It’s unfortunate according to him, that temples over 300 years old are at risk of demolition. 

Some temples that have received demolition notices are over 100 year old including the Kateel Temple in Dwara and the Mukhya Prana temple in Mangalore. 
The same government that had promised to protect the Hindu temples is not supporting and acting towards a demolition drive.  
Three hundred temples have now been given orders to relocate but there are many problems finding a place to relocate such a high number of temples and with so many restricted areas for religious structures present.

This is sad indeed, and the Hindus are sleeping. There are many other structures including houses built by people illegally, but the Govt is looking for soft targets (that are Hindu temples). Why not remove all illegal constructions including the bungalows by the ministers and their chamchas. Any Govt that does not respect the wishes of the majority of the people of India, will be doomed if they carry out these illegal acts of demolishing Hindu temples.

The fate of Hindu in India under Congress is known that this will never stop unless we also unite in our activiies and show the real strength of Hindu. A country like Sri Lanka which is not even one tenth of us and got all source of energy and harad work of us now throwing it out and started demolishing Hindu Temples.
If you further notce even in India nwxt to the temple a grand house or hut of an strong politician will be there which will have no issue and at times with debaries of the temple they may re desgin and rebuild the house that is the power of current indian Govt.

Why they were mute in demolishing minority temples in Deralakatte, Bejai and Valentia areas in Mangalore which are at the heart of the city and as well in public just even more illegal than those 1,219 constructions!!
