Sacrilege concern

Nasik Swami
Tuesday, January 30, 2018

THE Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha Fiji is concerned with the recent spate of desecration of Hindu temples around the country.

And this has forced the Sabha to organise a public forum with the Prime Minister, Attorney-General and the Commissioner of Police at the Shree Gopal Sadhu Hanumaan Gadhi Mandir in Nakasi, Nausori this evening.

Sabha's national secretary Virendra Lal has called on all Ramayan mandali (community based religious groups) and Sanatan followers to turn up in numbers at the forum.

"We are inviting all Ramayan madali and Sanatan followers to turn up in numbers for this very important public forum/talanoa session to show their concern on this very serious issue," Mr Lal said.

"I know many mandali have their Ramayan sitting on Tuesdays, but I humbly request them to turn up in numbers for this as we want to stop desecration of Hindu temples."

Mr Lal said those interested in sharing their views on the issue were to submit written submission which would be summarised and presented to the government officials during the forum.

The submissions are to be sent to and the forum proper starts at 6.45pm.
