Tulajapur (Maharashtra) : Andha-shraddha Nirmulan Samiti (ANiS), with the help of Maharashtra Government, had put up some boards to create fear amongst devotees which stated ‘It is prohibited to do anything against Ordinance 2013 passed for prohibition of human sacrifice and other dreadful and inhuman customs and its provisions’. Six boards were displayed in the temple of Sri Bhavanidevi. Shiv Sena’s group leader and senior MLA, Shri. Subhash Desai had given a warning two days back that ‘Shiv Sena will remove these boards in its style’. Accordingly, before removing these boards, Prof. Ravi Gaikwad, former MLA of Shiv Sena and other members of the party requested Tehsildar for their removal; but Tehsildar refused to do so in the name of receiving orders from ‘above’. (Received order from ‘above’ means from whom ? Pro-Hindu activists should follow up the matter and find out who had given such orders so that further follow up can be taken, in lawful manner, to take action against such person and in future, nobody will dare to indulge in such things. – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) The enraged Shiv Sainiks, gathered in large number, then removed those boards after tearing. (Hindus feel safe with Shiv Sainiks who became aggressive for removal of boards that were creating fear amongst devotees ! Why other powerful pro-Hindu organizations and parties do not feel anything ? They should introspect ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
- Shiv Sena is for protection of Hindu Dharma and Deities. Sri Tulajabhavani is our worshipped Deity. We had opposed the anti-superstitions Bill. We did not mean that it should not be passed; but it was necessary to take care that our religious sentiments towards Hindu Dharma were not hurt.
- Our members, taluka-chiefs, dy. district-chiefs submitted representations to the Government for removal of the boards; but nothing was done; therefore, we had to stage agitation. (Government throws all demands of Hindus in dust-bin even though made in lawful manner; but it bows before fanatic Muslims as they take law in their hands. If, therefore, Hindus take law in their hands, the Government is only responsible for the same ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
- We do not agree with displaying such boards and we will not allow it in our temples. At least temple trustees should have been careful.
- There is a reference of ‘human sacrifice’ made on the board. No human has been sacrificed in this temple since it was built. If ‘ajaan sacrifice (animal sacrifice)’ is a superstition, all district collectors have indulged in it since we got freedom; therefore, it is necessary to first take action against them and later, tell it to devotees like us’, is a clear stance of Shiv Sena.
If the Administration puts up such boards even in future, it will be uprooted along with the boards. If Tehsildar and District Collector take hasty stand, our Shiv Sainiks will take appropriate action to teach them a lesson and I will vouch for the same. (Congratulations to Shiv Sainiks who take such strong stand ! If anti-Hindu Government is misusing its powers and attacking religious faith of Hindus, Hindus need to teach the Government a lesson, in lawful manner and with unity ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) When reporters asked ‘who gave orders for removing boards?’ Shri. Shanbhag said , ‘whole Maharashtra knows that Shiv Sena gets orders from ‘Matoshree’.
Before putting up such boards at Hindus’ religious places, why the district collector and administration did not show guts to put up such boards at religious places of non-Hindus ? On behalf of Shiv Sena, I demand that district collector should resign from his post. (Other pro-Hindu organizations should support this demand so that anti-Hindu stand would not be taken by anyone in future. – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat)
Human sacrifice has never been given in temple; still it was written on the board; therefore, Shiv Sena has staged this agitation. If same thing continues, Shiv Sena will stage intense agitations.
Shiv Sena’s Shri. Sudhir Kadam (Tulajapur city-President), Mohan Panore (Lohara), Dnyanraj Suryavanshi (Lohara Taluka-chief), Dilip Javale (Dharashiv Taluka-chief) and hundreds of Shiv Sainiks including Shyam Pawar, Umesh Khandekar, Kalidas Naikwadi, Dinesh Rasal, Balasaheb Shinde, Sunil Jadhav, Sachin Kambale etc. were present on the occasion.
