The pontiff of the Madurai Aadheenam (a Tamil Shaivite cloister) pummeled the Hindu strict and magnanimous gifts (HR and CE) division on Monday and required the office to be disbanded, blaming them for debasement.
The HR and CE office directs in excess of 44,000 sanctuaries and trusts in Tamil Nadu.
"The public authority doesn't meddle in that frame of mind of temples. The equivalent goes for mosques. Be that as it may, the public authority meddles in the working of our sanctuaries through the HR and CE division. This office has transformed our sanctuaries into a sanctum for thieves. It ought to be disbanded," the head of the Madurai Aadheenam, Harihara Desika Gnanasambantha Paramacharaya, said during a gathering coordinated by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in Madurai.
"They (sanctuaries) ought to be unmistakably given to us (Aadheenams), however we wouldn't fret regardless of whether they give them to us. An appointed authority with a board of legal counselors ought to control the sanctuaries. The board will likewise counsel pontiffs and neighborhood individuals. This is the means by which sanctuaries ought to be made due," Paramacharaya added.
In August 2021, Paramacharaya took over as the 293rd top of the Madurai Aadheenam, laid out quite a while back, and has been condemning of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), which framed the public authority in May 2021. His ancestors avoided offering political remarks.
The pontiff had taken on the DMK government last month when the Mayiladuthurai locale organization forced a restriction on Pattina Pravesam, an act of conveying the top of the Dharumapuram Adheenam on a cart. The Madurai Aadheenam had said that the pontiff was getting demise dangers for saying that he would convey the cart in the event that the boycott isn't switched. "I will go to Delhi and whine to the home clergyman assuming I keep on getting demise dangers," he had said. With the intercession of HR&CE serve P K Sekar Babu and boss clergyman M K Stalin, the boycott was reversed.added.
Responding to the most recent assertion from Paramacharaya, HR&CE serve Babu on Monday said that the Madurai Aadheenam was offering dubious expressions just to be at the center of attention. "Every one of the pontiffs and diviners are on the main pastor. Since he has offered a few superfluous remarks, it doesn't mean I need to answer it."
Strangely, Paramacharaya's height was tested by criminal so called 'Godman' Nithyananda in 2021, working up a discussion over the progression. The 292nd pontiff of the Madurai Adheenam, Sri Arunagirinathar, passed on 13 August 2021 and had named Nithyananda as his replacement in 2012. Nonetheless, following a couple of months, Arunagirinathar withdrew his choice following discussions and difficulties to the arrangement. He then, at that point, designated Paramacharaya as his replacement in 2019.
