Irrespective of the massive awareness campaign of Sadhguru and the missed calls, I can see Hindu Temples(all over India) being freed only through legal means(through landmark court judgements like 2014 Chidambaram temple Judgement, Shirur Mutt Judgement of 1954 etc.) I dont know
what is the next action plan of Sadhguru since elections are over today?Will Sadhguru still pursue #FreeHinduTemples Cause after elections result on May 3rd? If yes, what is the next step of Sadhguru? Going to Courts?or Just Continue with awareness campaign but will it be enough?
When you are pursuing a civilizational cause which by nature is challenging, you have to somehow strive and be show consistent determination for the civilizational cause. Fighting for a Civilizational Cause cant be for a temporary period just for political election purposes.
Max to Max Sadhguru has achieved awareness on this but what is the next step? AIADMK and DMK will fight like anything to have control over temples. Deekshitars had to fight for 27 years from 1987 to 2014(after winning in 1951) to free the Chidambaram temple. What is the solution?
Sadhguru himself claims that 3 crore people have joined his campaign to free temples. So, the awareness has been achieved. Now Can Sadhguru say now what is his next step since elections are over? There needs to be some sort of plan. Awareness will not get you over the finish line
This is the reason Pujya Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati ji had filed a case in 2012 to free temples. And even Ahobilam Mathadhipathi is fighting a legal battle to free Ahobilam temple from State Control. Legal action seems to be the only realistic solution to #FreeHinduTemples

Thread.There is a lot of discussion on this question of "Who will control temples once Govt goes out?". There has been some contrasting views. One is from BJP regarding seperate Board of administration consisting of Saints and Scholars(which I disagree) .One is from the Hindu
Charter on so called "Inclusive management" to face conversions (final draft is not yet out but I still disagree with the broad idea). One is from @indiccollective and an excellent article by @Ravilochanan86 on @Swatantramag( which I agree) which provides answers to all questions
on alternate management framework and which provides major emphasis on Sampradaya. But there is 1 major issue which has not yet been touched upon. All these points of views from @indiccollective , BJP and Hindu Charter is only applicable for those temples which has been under

#SaveTemples #FreeHinduTemples. Awareness phase is over. Time for some sort of action. What is the action? If the Govt is not not going to free hindu temples, then legal action is the only way to free hindu temples. Pujya Sri Swamy Dayananda Saraswati ji had filed a writ petition
in 2012 in Supreme Court to free hindu temples in state of Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry. There has been legal petition to free Tiruchendur Sri Subramanya Swamy Temple by @indiccollective and TR Ramesh sir and J Sai Deepak in the Supreme Court.Even the 51 Uttarakhand
temples takeover is being challenged by Subramanian Swamy sir, @indiccollective , @People4Dharma and Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha which is now in the Supreme Court. Ahobilam Mathahipathi is challenging the takeover of Ahobilam temple which is a Math Temple in the Andhra Pradesh

I am sick of this question of "who will administer our temples once temples freed from State Control" but I will try to answer this question one last time.Also I will try to address and provide solutions to 3 major issues in temples managed by private parties as per some RW
Hindus.According to me every temple is a Dharmik Sampradaya as per Article 26 which is clearly stated in the 1987 Hindi Constitution as every temple belongs to a unique Sampradaya due to the unique traditions of that particular temple on the basis of historical significance of
that particular temple and in some cases traditions could be unique due to the nature and character of the deity in that particular temple(Sabarimala). So Once temples are freed from Govt control, temples need to be managed by those priests or trustees who belong to that

10 Dec 20… A section of the priests and temple staff under Malabar Devaswom Board(Govt) by staging a relay Satyagraha raising long pending demands including parity of pay and clearing salary dues in temples.Joint agitation council convener stated that despite High
Court calling for reasonable remuneration and parity of pay for priests and other temple staff in Malabar way back in 1994, it hasn't been implemented. He also stated that Malabar Devaswom Board(which has 1300 temples under it) pays salaries classifying temples as per the income
generated by the place of worship which is unjust and discriminatory .Measly salaries for staff in C and D category temples have not been paid for months even as income from offerings at temples had also stopped due to Corona. Monthly salary of cleaning staff is as low as 2500

A rant. I had taken a twitter break and after this thread, I will continue to take a twitter break after this rant thread. My mind is restless and I am feeling disturbed and I am almost crying and I am feeling a bit of unrest with an incident. Mahakali Moorthi broken at
Doddagaddavalli Lakshmi Devi Temple in Karnataka. I am not able to see the pictures. I am feeling helpless. Hindus, how long will you show no interest in protecting our temple ecosystem? How Long? For Free Hindu Temples Cause, I am almost trying to beg people to join and show
interest in this cause. But Very few people are showing interest. Now, this incident will be forgotten after 2 days and everything will be normal. I have to be still optimistic and positive.
Dear Hindus,
Please show interest in protecting our temple ecosystem as you show
