WHY SO MUCH CONCERN ABOUT “REFORMING” HINDU RELIGION ?
Every other day, government has been announcing that it has retrieved the unauthorisedly occupied land belonging to Hindu temples. While this has created an impression that Tamil Nadu government is favourably disposed towards Hindu temples, it was then said that the retrieved land would be utilised for setting up educational institutions.
While the government is administering many Hindu temples , government is not owner of them. It cannot use the temple land for any purpose as it wants.
Now, the government has appointed archakas belonging to various castes for several Hindu temples , replacing the traditional archakas, who have much knowledge and experience about temple rituals.
This has introduced an element of confusion amongst the Hindu devotees.
Many believe that this could even weaken the traditional practices of rituals in Hindu temples
Temples occupy pivotal place in Hindu religion. Weakening the Hindu temples could be the sure way of weakening the Hindu religion.
