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.

CHENNAI: Justice P.R. Shivakumar of the Madras High Court has ordered notice to the Commissioner and Joint Commissioner of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Board, among others, on a petition seeking to quash an order permitting a Fit Person to appoint two persons as `archakas' (priests) at the Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple at Narasimgapuram in Tiruvallur district.


In his petition, S.M. Nandagopal, managing trustee of the temple, submitted that the temple was an ancient one and constructed as per the Pancharatra Agama. The poojas and rituals were performed according to the agama. As per the agama, only those persons born in a Bhattacharya family and who had undergone various processes and diksha were qualified to be archakas.


On the request of the Fit Person of the Trust, the Commissioner of the Board had permitted two persons to be appointed archakas.They did not belong to the Bhattacharya sect and were not trained at the Pancharatra Agama Patasala, which imparts archaka training. They were not qualified.

The Commissioner, Joint Commissioner and the Fit Person had no administrative powers to appoint archakas in the temple. The action was not only against agama sastras but also violated Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution, the petitioner said.

Kept in abeyance

In a communication, the HR and CE department had said that it had kept in abeyance the order for administrative reasons.
