As reported previously by TFI, the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Trust is not the only Temple authority that has stepped in time of the pandemic. A few days earlier, it was announced that Jagannath Puri temple had donated 1.51 crore rupees to Chief Minister Relief Fund (CMRF) to help the state government in the fight against the virus.
“As per the decision of the Managing Committee of Shree Jagannath Temple, Puri, an amount of Rs.1,51.00.000/- (One crore fifty-one lakh) is contributed towards Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for COVID-19 from Temple Administration,” a letter from the temple registration read.
In Varanasi, the Kashi Vishwanath Temple is feeding the patients suffering from Coronavirus disease. In the Botad district of Gujarat, Sarangpur Hanuman Mandir Dharamshala has been converted into a 100-bed hospital, while in Vodadara BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir has started a 300 bed Covid hospital. Prior to this, 62 other smaller temples have donated 1.37 crore rupees to CMRF.
The Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Trust is entrusted with the responsibility to construct a grand temple in Ayodhya. The collection for the purpose of constructing the temple was held for one month from January 15 to February 17 this year, and during the said period, an estimated Rs. 2,500 crores were collected.
The temples are donating generously for the fight against the Coronavirus and have helped the patients irrespective of caste, class and community. The left-liberal establishment, which does not understand the ideas like autonomy, voluntary need not be taken seriously, and the people should not be carried away by their anti-Hindu propaganda.
