Despite opposition by fanatics and police, program of Hindu chanting takes place in temple

Kozhikode (Kerala) : A program of continuous chanting was held in Swami Bharati temple in a minority pre-dominant district. Local fanatics opposed to hold such program and police too supported them. Advocate Vimal Das filed a case in Kerala High Court against them and after acquiring permission from the Court, the program was held without any obstacles. Swami Bharati and advocate Vimal Das, both had attended the second all-India Hindu Convention held in Goa, in June 2013.

  1. Swami Bharati has set up a temple of Goddess near his house, as ordered by his Guru at Karuvankal, his native place. In the month of December, every year, a program is held in this temple where chanting is done throughout the day.
  2. In December 2013, a day was fixed in advance for holding such chanting program and its propagation was started; but 25 days ago, 148 people from that village signed a representation and submitted it to the ‘Panchayat’ officer wherein it was claimed that the temple was unauthorized. Devotional songs are played loudly in that temple which is creating problem for fanatics from madarasa and mosque. Since the temple did not have necessary permission, such programs should be stopped.

  3. Out of 148 persons signing the representation, 147 were fanatics and 1 was a Hindu. It was later found out that the Hindu was deceived by fanatics to take his signature on the representation.
