GHHF / SaveTemples Organization Suspends Dr. Ghazal Srinivas as Brand Ambassador
- Press release by Dr. Prakasarao Velagapudi, President of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation / Save Temples
Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) and Save Temples organization was started in 2006 by several NRI’s who were passionate in preserving and protecting Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism). Its main goal was to free Hindu Temples from the government control, uphold and preserve high moral values and ethical principles consistent with our ancient scriptures.
Last eleven years GHHF / Save Temples engaged in bringing many changes in the protection and preservation of Hindu culture. We are supporting the efforts of various organizations that filed the case in the Supreme Court to repeal the Endowment Act (Free Temples from Govt. control).
For readers interested in GHHF / Save Temples activities over the years, please download the brochure. Few accomplishments of the Organization are listed below:

We have considered our office as a sacred place and treated our employees as family members. Our scriptures accorded high respect for women in the family and society. We are really surprised and shocked to hear the allegations of sexual harassment in our India office.
GHHF / Save Temples does not tolerate any abuse of power or any infraction on moral conduct. Because of the allegations of sexual harassment filed against Dr. Ghazal Srinivas by one of the female employees, Board of Directors unanimously passed a resolution to suspend Dr. Ghazal Srinivas as Brand Ambassador of Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) and SaveTemples Organization effective immediately.
