GHHF appeal to the followers of SAVETEMPLES.ORG:
Dear Hindu Samudai, sorry for the interruption, but GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION really needs you. This is the 1st ever appeal we've shown you. All we ask is $51 [ ₹ ] and it's easy to donate on your phone. We are not greedy, so consider donating just $51 so that you can come again next year; also we understand we are not the only Hindu organization, so we encourage you to save your donation pocket. Please share our articles, to spread awareness and also to help us decide either to reduce the collective donation burden next year or add more Hindu revival causes. We ask you, humbly: Please don't scroll away.
Curious on why we began this appeal?

First off, GLOBAL HINDU HERITAGE FOUNDATION is very pleased by your support in keeping our Hindutvam reviving activities as a continuous effort. We have been brainstorming and working at various levels & activities in withholding our religious freedom with dignity and pride in Bharat.

GHHF runs purely on donations. But it has been unfortunate in recent months for being exhausted in standing against the overwhelming Hindu-extinguishing forces, on various fronts like judicial, cultural, educational, evangelical, jihadical, etc, with present financial aid that we are receiving. We have almost reached a brink of giving up our struggle.

As we all are aware that voluntary service compromises on quality of service, we can achieve quality only with more volunteers. But since we have too few voluntary people on the ground, we have injected salaried employees, welcome gifts to Gharwapasis, daily gifts to Bala Samskar kids, helping poor temple priests, goushalas & temple rennovations, legal maintenance, etc. And this in turn is now becoming a bottle neck to achieve financial fulfillment every month/year. All we ask is $51 per year. More members, less collective burden, more service.

How long do we run this drive?
OK. Now that we began apologizing for interrupting you, please feel free to get interrupted during Kartheeka maas (around November). Well, religions of Tithe and Zakat/Jiziya do suck up to 10% of the income by appealing every month. Let us all Hindus get used to be reminded once an year as a small effort to forward a step towards the revival of Hindutvam.

AP State will take total control of all mutts

 Hyderabad, Nov. 23: The State government has decided to take absolute control of Hindu mutts. The proposal has been pending for four years. The State government is also considering bringing Hindu religious trusts under its control. The government is planning to amend the AP Endowments Act to enable the endowments commissioner to oversee the day-to-day administration of mutts


Once the Act is amended, 181 mutts will come under the control of the endowments commissioner. According to sources, the law department has vetted the proposed amendment. An ordinance amending the Act is expected after the winter session of the Assembly. Another amendment pertains to scrapping the clause which specifies that only officials above the age of 45 should be appointed as endowments commissioner.


This is being done in the wake of the High Court nullifying the appointment of IAS official J.S.V. Prasad as endowments commissioner, since he did not fulfil the age requirement. Mutts such as Hathiramji of Tirupati, Raghavendra of Mantralaya, Byragi of West Godavari and Gavi in Uravakonda in Anathapur, which have assets worth crores of rupees, would come under the control of the government.

This will strip many "financial powers" of the heads of mutts. For instance, "padu kanukalu" (offerings made to deities of temples run by mutts), will now go into a general account. Earlier, they were considered the property of the mutt head. Sources said the government was also keen on bringing wealthy Hindu religious trusts under its control but was yet to take a concrete decision on the matter.
