Free Hindu Temples from Government Control
Prasad Yalamanchi and Pruthviraj Solanki, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation
Starting in 1937 Governments in India started enacting archaic laws whereby governments at various levels took control of mandirs and used the collections to supplement their coffers and support other religions. Mosques and churches are not under government control, only Hindu Temples are.
Sadly, mandirs continue to be under Government control even today, and the money from these mandirs continues to be spent on churches and mosques.
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation / Save Temples is a project to take control of our mandirs back from the government. Thanks to the efforts of this foundation, the Hindu Endowment Act is finally being challenged in the Indian Supreme Court. It is hoped that our mandirs will be completely free from government control in the coming years.
