State Government Taking Over Private Temples: Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary Clarifies

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad had a few days ago objected to the government issuing notices to private temples based on the circular which said that private temples had been asked to submit details, including their immovable and movable assets, under Section 53 of the Act. The notices had warned that legal action will be taken against them if details are not furnished. Zonal executive president, VHP, South Karnataka, M.B. Puranik, had said that this was nothing but a move to take control over private temples.
Minister for Muzrai has clarified that the State government will not take over private temples. He said that Section 53 of the Karnataka Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments (Amendment) Act of 2011 mandated registration of all private religious institutions. The recent notices issued to the private religious institutions were based on the circular issued by the Congress government in August 2015 which had quoted Section 53 of the Act. The government’s letter to Deputy Commissioners in November 2020 asked the Deputy Commissioners to file a compliance report on the basis of the circular issued in 2015. “Now, we are not pressing for filing the compliance report and we have withdrawn the circular,” Minister Poojary said.
