By Chiranjeevi Bhat
I regret to state that Tirupati is soon going to go into the hands of
Christians and Muslims.
I donât intend to scare anyone. But that is the reality.
Most of us usually book hotel, bus, flight and even darshan tickets from
Bengaluru itself over the internet and finish our visit.
But do we know that there are a lot of Christians and Muslims working in
the TTD (Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam) Trust? Do we know the pitfalls of
And please do not scream saying you are a communal, we Hindus are secular
and therefore what is the problem if people from other religion work there.
The result of constantly shouting that we are secular and anti-communal is
that the Muslims working in TTD are demanding, since 5 years, that the TTD
office must be closed on Fridays so that they can go for namaz.
This demand is being heard with increasing intensity of late.
Why? Why has the voice gone up now? There is an answer.
Since the last two months, the local MLA Putta Sudhakar Yadav has been
elected as the new TTD President.
Hearing his name, you may feel that he is from the Yadav clan. If you
think so, it will only be our own illusion, and nothing else! There are
accusations that Sudhakar and others are Christian.
As proof of this, it has become known that he has participated as the chief
guest in several Christian programmes and has also spoken elaborately about
Christianity and Jesus. In other words, he is spreading the âword of Jesusâ!
Tell me â do we still need to tolerate such things?
If you want to prove Hindus are secularists and therefore Christians must
be allowed into temples, why donât you call them Christian Hindus?
If you will allow Muslims to work in temples â just call them Islamic
Hindus. Instead of this, why should we heap upon ourselves the burden of
taking them and then giving them leave for namaz, etc.?
All said and done, is Tirupati in Bharat or is it in Pakistan or Vatican?
After having allowed Christians into the temple for so long, do you know
what is being heard now?
The Christians there are saying âTirupati Thimmappa is not only the God of
Hindus, but since people of all religions visit here, he is God of
Though this sound innocent, it is not. Do you know what is the next
planned step in the attack by missionaries? To add Jesusâ name to a few
mantras and then go around claiming that Venkateshwara Swamy is actually
Not just the President, there is also a Christian amongst the members. An
Andhra MLA, Vangalapudi Anita, has been given the position of a member in
In an interview to a TV channel in 2014, this lady had declared âI am a
Christian. Without a Bible in my vanity bag and car, I never step out of my
But now she claims to be a devotee of Venkateshwara and a Hindu! Is it a
miracle by Jesus that a person who would not move without 2 Bibles at hand
becomes a Hindu and TTD member in 2018? Or is it the valour of the silent
Not just them â there are around 44 Christians and Muslims working at TTD
as staff. TTD has a rule which says âOnly Hindus must be given employment.
This who have converted or those who are not Hindus must not be employedâ.
But this rule has been overruled and these people have been employed.
This means TTD is being slowly Islamized. The most benevolent Jesus is
In 2012 and 2018, devotees red-handedly caught hold of Nagaraju,
Yashodamma, Krishnamma and Ishvarayya â who were TTD employees â trying to
convert devotees into Christianity, and were sent to jail. Imagine how
shameless we have become when TTD members are themselves saying âYes
conversions are happeningâ
The inclusion of non-Hindus, in spite of a rule barring the same, started
during the rule of Y S Rajashekara Reddy as CM. Just because he had the
surname of Reddy doesnât mean he was a devotee of Thimmappa. Reddy was a
There is yet another matter that may shock the devotees.
Out of the 7 hills, only two are under the control of TTD. One of them is
the hill where Thimmappa actually resides.
The other 5 hills are under the control of the Government. But there are
documents dating back to the British era to show that these 5 hills also
belong to TTD.
During the reign of the late Y S Rajashekara Reddy, there were lots of
efforts to build big churches on all of these hills, equal in size to the
Then there is the continuing all-out effort to attract devotees towards
Jesus and Christianity. One should not be surprised if Churches mushroom
all over the place in the next 5 years.
When Hindus themselves have become weak and have lost interest in Hindu
religious places, can we expect the missionaries to actually let go of such
Y S Rajashekara Reddy first appointed B Karunakara Reddy to the TTD.
Although his surname is Reddy, he is actually a Christian. After his
appointment, one by one many Christians and Muslims became staff.
According to the Agama shastras, at the time of Brahmotsava, only Hindus
must give the necessary clothes â âvastraâ â to Lord Venkateshwara.
This practice has been in vogue since the days of erstwhile Maharajas. But
over here, a Christian Rajashekar Reddy has handed over the clothes. And
the archakas have adorned Thimmappa with the same just because Rajashekar
Reddy was a CM.
These Hindus will shout âvellandi vellandiâ and push us out without caring
for the elderly or children whenever we ordinary people visit, are making
Christians as their President and putting clothes given by them to
Isnât this a lack of spine? Or perhaps this is exactly what secularism is
Look at the height of arrogance of the TTD staff â whenever their Father
gives them a call or if there is any other Christian event, they go there
using the car given by TTD. If a car meant for dharmic purposes is made to
stand in front of a church in the name of secularism, then I have strong
objection to such secularism.
Alipiri is the starting point for climbing Tirumala hills. Devotees buy
tickets and other material from here itself. The tragedy â there was an
attempt to convert this place into a tourist spot and start a âheli joy
rideâ. This would have meant that the devotees would have been taken for a
ride over the 7 hills.
However, going over the Gopura of any Hindu temple is prohibited. After the
âKalashaâ is established, no one can cross over the same. It is believed to
be equivalent to walking over the head of the deity.
The Christian officials in TTD were on the verge of bringing such a
Helicopter scheme only to make money. When the locals protested saying that
Tirumala was a dharmic place and not a tourist one, the plan was finally
Whose worry is it anyway? If a Christian is brought in and made to sit in a
temple trust, he will of course start a âheli joy rideâ. Whatâs more, he
will also distribute wine on Sundays. After all, he has become the
President only to convert Thimmappa into Jesus, isnât it?
One scheme started by Rajashekara Reddy is proof enough to understand how
hardcore a Christian he was. He started a scheme to give 2 acres of land to
those Christians who were divorced.
The result was that couples started showing, on paper, that they were
divorced and gobbled up 2 acres of land each. As long as Reddy was around,
Andhra had become a basecamp for Christian missionaries.
Meetings used to take place in Churches where strategies were discussed
for making him CM again. A similar effort is being made now to bring
Jaganmohan Reddy to power.
Letâs ignore this and come back to the main issue. If non-Hindus have to
enter Thimmappaâs temple, they have to sign a register declaring âI belong
to a different religion but I believe in Venkateshwara Swamyâ.
But when a show cause notice was given asking why the TTD officials, who
are walking into the temple, without signing the registry and also wearing
hats and crosses, should not be removed from their jobs, these employees
have gone to court.
Even though there is talk of them being shunted to other departments, they
are still in TTD itself. In addition, they are demanding time off on
Fridays for performing namaz. Christians are going around claiming that
Thimmappa belongs to all religions.
A situation has developed where not just Hindus, but even Thimmappa is
going to find it difficult to remove these Christians and Muslims, who have
encroached upon Hindu sacred space.
My question is very simple â in secular India should only a Hindu practice
Or will people belonging to other religions also follow secularism?
Can you show me a single instance of a Hindu being appointed in a Wakf
board or a Masjid board or a Church or missionary board?
Before Hindus become âGovindaaaaâ please save our Govinda! Otherwise next
time you visit Tirumala for darshan of Thimmappa, wear a skull cap like
Muslims and light a candle there like Christians instead of lamp.
Because we Hindus are secular and will remain the same.
