Hindu Jagarana Vedike protests against demolition of temple

Prime News, National, Karnataka, Religion, Mysuru, September 16:- In protest against the demolition of a temple at Nanjangud in Mysuru district, the Hindu Jagarana Vedike members staged a demonstration here on Thursday (September 16).

A videographer was allegedly manhandled by Vedike activists. Hindu Jagaran Vedike volunteers were protesting in front of Kote Anjaneyaswamy Temple against the district administration.

HJV convener Jagadish Karanth said, “In the name of Supreme Court order, some officials have ordered the demolition of the temple. The action is nothing but cruelty against Hindus. This incident should be the first and the last and hopefully, it does not occur in future again.”

He said, “Hindus have a lot of patience. What is disturbing is our people are acting against our interests. We will give a 10-day deadline to the government. The Deputy Commissioner and Yahsildar should be punished. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai should take the responsibility of safeguarding Hindu temples.”

Karanth said, “Villagers might be innocent but it does not mean you can defend the demolition act. The situation is different now and it should be a stern warning to all those who are anti-Hindu.”

Krishnaraja Constituency MLA S A Ramadass and District In-charge Minister S T Somashekar were present when HJV activists shouted slogans against the BJP leaders. Somashekar had to face a war of slogans pitted against him. (MR/KS)
