Such looting, massive sale of temple lands, encroachments of temple properties is occurring all over State, he said adding that temple properties have been sold through fraudulent deals by a powerful nexus of self-styled elements and land sharks.
The government, which is supposed to be a protector has become a destroyer of the culture, which threatens the very existence of temples, he alleged.
“If the state is not taking care of your heritage, preserving your religion and traditions, and all the monuments or temples that are meant to uphold your culture, than Shri Ram Sena will come on roads to raise their voice against such illegal sale of temples land.
Mahajan said that despite the State Government’s “verbal assurances” to protect temple properties, nothing is being done to protect them.
He appealed to State Government to bring all temples of Jammu and Kashmir State under the Temple and Shrine Bill and take strict action against those who indulge in sale of temple land.
