Five Floors of Islamic University are ordered to be demolished
A number of organizations and a great number of people have waged a successful fight to see that the Islamic University would not see the light of the day. The District Collector ordered the demolition of 5 floors (out of 6). This is a great story to be passed on to every Hindu who is concerned about the sacredness of Tirupathi and also appreciate the tireless efforts of thousands of Hindus.
Still the fight is going on about the illegal acquisition of the land. Please read the story published in THE HINDU on November 22, 2013.
Swami Paripoornananda and Dr. Ghazal Sreenivas are going to Tirupathi on November 30, 2013 to address the three issues:
1) Complete removal Islamic University structure and illegal occupation of the land
2) Approach TTD to build Vakulamata Temple or assign responsibility to GHHF.
3) Stop the plans of constructing International Cricket Stadium at the foothills of Tirupathi.
Further progress will be updated in our website. Please keep visiting frequently.

'Illegal' floors of Islamic university facing demolition

District Collector K. Ramgopal has instructed the revenue and police officials to demolish the unapproved floors of the building that houses the Heera International Islamic University in Thondavada village of Chandragiri mandal.
ShaikNowheera, president of the Madarasa-NiswanIsha-Atul-Islam-Urdu and the Arabic Development Society Trust, had sought permission from the Tirupati Urban Development Authority (TUDA) in 2010 for the construction of a G+1 structure. She, however, ended up constructing up to G+6 floors, in spite of the notices issued by the Panchayat secretary of Thondavada on February 25 and May 28 last year.
The institute was in the eye of a storm a couple of months ago, when the BJP raised a hue and cry that the structure was coming up on tank ‘Poramboke’ land and in the land belonging to the now-dilapidated Thimmappa (Venkateswara) temple. Basing on a report submitted by the Tirupati Divisional Panchayat Officer to the effect, Mr. Ramgopal gave the nod to the Panchayat Secretary, who is also the enforcing authority, for demolition of the floors constructed in violation of the norms.
He also directed the SP (Tirupati Urban) to arrange police ‘bandobust’ during the demolition.
BJP State spokesperson G. Bhanuprakash Reddy appreciated the order and said that the pertinent issues raised by the party stood vindicated by the Collector’s order. He appealed to the authorities to take the issue to the logical end by ensuring demolition at the earliest. Hindu Jana JagrutiSamstha spokesperson Akula Krishna Kishore and Adi Hindu Parirakshana Samithi president KalluriChengaiah, who held a joint demonstration at the TUDA office in the past, called it their ‘first victory’ and announced to continue their tirade.
