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.

Ban on urban temple lands' sale

Endowments Act in for sweeping changes

HYDERABAD: Sale of temple lands in towns and cities of the State will not be allowed and instead retained to serve the original purpose as intended by the donors.

The lands will be used to generate income to ensure conduct of daily temple rituals.

For the purpose of leasing the temple lands, a re-definition will be provided to "landless poor", enhancing the holding limit to a realistic level.

The Government proposed these and other sweeping changes in the temple administration system through a Bill introduced in the Assembly on Wednesday by Endowments Minister J. C. Diwakar Reddy.

It seeks to amend the Andhra Pradesh Charitable & Hindu Religious Institutions and Endowments Act. The Andhra Pradesh Archaka Samakhya hailed the Bill.

Difficult situation

The Minister said strict adherence to the Act had caused a "difficult situation".

Archakas opted out as they failed to get salaries and lead a decent life.

Temples remained "impoverished". Continuance of archaka families was necessary to preserve the Hindu custom.

They should be appointed on a priority basis whenever a vacancy arose.

The Bill proposed formation of `bhakta samajams' for each temple to conduct religious programmes, including processions, but they would work under the Sanathana Dharma Parishad.

Welfare fund

It would provide legislative sanctity to the Archaka Welfare Fund with contributions from large temples and enhanced the income limits, thereby reclassifying them.
