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.

Temple panel sets June 8 deadline for passing of Endowment Amendment Act

    Asks pilgrims not to put donations in hundis
    "Don't buy tickets for sevas from temples"



HYDERABAD: The Temples' Protection Committee which organised an `open debate' here on Saturday on the Endowments Amendment Bill-2007 has called for "a civil disobedience movement" by devotees. It has set June 8 as the deadline for passing the legislation.

M.V. Soudararajan, convener, told The Hindu that the committee would also embark on a plan to take up `doopa deepa naivedyam' scheme in temples across the State, as envisaged in the Endowments Amendment Bill-2007, since there was uncertainty about its passage after it was referred to the Select Committee on April 9.

"We will give a call to the devotees, as part of civil disobedience movement, to stop donating to `hundis' and not to purchase tickets for performing `sevas' in 206 temples State-wide, he said.

The professor-turned archaka of Chilkur temple expressed distress that the bill could not be passed on the last day of the recently concluded session despite assurances by Ministers N. Raghuveera Reddy and P. Lakshmaiah.

Campaign planned

He said the committee would launch a State-wide campaign to educate the people and mobilise their opinion with the intent of pressing its demand for an ordinance replacing the bill. The campaign would take off with the committee organising meetings in Telangana districts. It would culminate with a public meeting at Warangal on May 20 to be attended by legislators of different parties. A similar drive in the Rayalaseema and Andhra regions would follow.

Already, people were organising poojas and conducting bhajans in the Ananta Padmanabha Temple at Devarampalli village in Ranga Reddy district and in Ranganatha Swamy Temple in Warangal. Families were taking turns to prepare food and offering it as `naivedyam' in the temples. This trend will increase, with more devotees following their example, Prof. Soundararajan observed.
