VHP will reclaim original sites of Kashi, Mathura temples

Kancheepuram, India, June 26 (KMS): The working President of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Alok Kumar has said that it will reclaim the original sites of Kashi Vishwanath temple and Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura peacefully as per the constitutional and legal framework. However, as the matter is in court, both the parties should wait for the verdict.

Alok Kumar speaking to reporters after the VHP’s Central Governing Council meeting in Kancheepuram said the VHP condemns the violence perpetrated by fundamentalists across India against the remarks of BJP leaders, Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal.

He said that the Vishwa Hindu Parishad will intensify its demonstration by demanding that the temples be taken out of the clutches of the state governments and handed over to the administration run by the larger Hindu society.

“The income from the temples should be spent on the maintenance of the temples or for the Hindus and not for the expenses of the government administration. It is a matter of regret that even now some temples are being run by the state governments,” Alok Kumar maintained.
