Mysuru: MP Pratap Simha threatens to spearhead people's movement if temple demolitions continue


Daijiworld Media Network - Mysuru (SP)

Mysuru, Sep 13: MP Pratap Simha, has issued a warning to lead 'save temples' movement with the support of the people if the current drive to demolish temples alone, which are standing in public places continues.

He criticized the district administration for not properly assimilating the Supreme Court order. Addressing a press meet held here on Sunday September 12, he urged the administration to withdraw the order of 2010. Simha said that the Supreme Court had said that religious buildings illegally constructed in public places should be treated as separate, and to provide them alternative land, or if possible, regularise these structures. The Supreme Court had laid emphasis on taking the people into confidence through various steps including regularization of constructions wherever possible. The district administration has overlooked these points and is behaving like thieves who undertake evictions in the early hours, he fumed.

Simha stated that the district administration here has cleared nine temples so far, while leaving mosques and Dargahs untouched. "In the list of places identified to be demolished, there are over 90 temples and the officials have targeted only Hinduism," he complained. The MP said that when offering prayers in the mosques, the devotees think of Mecca and in churches, the congregation have Rome in their minds. "In temples, the devotees keep the idols of the specific temples in their minds. Therefore, churches, mosques and temples cannot be treated as one and the same," he explained.

To the statement made by MLA Tanveer Sait that his community members have no bangles in their hands if the authorities touch the buildings of Islam, he termed this statement as insult for the women. He said that in Islam, the ladies are forced to wear burqas and confirmed to kitchens. He asked people not to forget that Indira Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Onake Obavva are women.

    I think Pratap Simha must approach PM Modiji and request him to change the SC Judge, and appoint a new Judge to issue a fresh orders. Easily the work can be done .

    Hello Mr. illiterate MP . Christians don't have Rome in their mind while praying. we have almighty god alone and nothing else. it is not enough if you update your mobile software. also you need to update your mentality.

    You are wrong Mr. Pratap, The Christians never think about "Rome" while praying as you claimed. They only pray to Almighty God and not to any city. For Christians God is omnipresent. The Gathering of People called "Church". Please learn & then talk . Let people think you are an idiot then confirming it by the way you talk.

    Concentrate on developmental work. if possible, mobilize resources from all sections for it. Do not waste your precious energy for unwanted things. Whenever any place is a hindrance, it is human maturity to remove them or relocate them.

    I don't think he is aware that even few Church and mosque are going to be demolished since they are built illegally.. Among the religious centers to be demolished if the temple count is more its not our fault. Instead of threatening the law just rebuild them legally. Law is same for everyone it cannot be different to any religion or political party

    There is a pattern here. Demolition is also taking place in several places in Tamil Nadu. Looks like some ulterior motive or someone driving this to further polarize. Supreme court is supreme for all and not just for temples.

    Real Kujuma...Some years back why did Saudi Government banned Iranian Pilgrims entering Makkha. How many time Iranian Shias made hostage kaaba. Any idea. In one incident more than 800 people died in the incident from both the sides. Why Iranians claim always on Kaaba...as it's once coming under Persian Gulf. Why did one more Kaaba in Yemen was destroyed. Recently person named Al-Qathani with his followers why did he seized Kaaba for two weeks period. Why did he claim he himself his Last Mehdi and all muslim brethren follow him here after. Latter on with force from other countries how regained with death of Al-Qathani and beheading all his followers. Is it not a heinous act. Why did mughals attacked religious places of other communities.. are they afraid much of it. How one can build mosque up above temples. Is it pak in Islam.
