Temples Built Illegally After Encroaching Roads, Footpaths, Public Properties & Mosques

By Sulaiman Razvi

Building temple is an easy task in India. First you either paint existing stone or place idol of Hindu god at any place more specifically below a tree. No one will object to it, then expand it gradually and construct a huge temple there. If authorities tries to demolish it then Hindus will stage a protest and authorities will go away with temple being untouched. This is how several temples are built in India. This is the reason you will find small temples in every corner of the street. But this tactic is not just limited to roads, footpaths or public places, Hindus have attempted to usurp mosques and Muslim monuments as well. They places an idol near the mosque or Muslim monument and expands it if Muslims objects to it then they will use their power to silence Muslims. Charminar of Hyderabad is one such example where an illegal temple called Bhagyalaxmi Mandir was built illegally just by placing a small stone in 1960s or 1980s.

ASI takes up temple issue

ASI Superintending Archaeologist of Hyderabad Circle Milan Kumar Chauley said that part of the temple has encroached into the south-east minaret of the Charminar.

The official presented his case with the aid of several photographs from 1950s to date which show that the temple came on the southern-east end of the monument much later.

The ASI has time and again said that the temple is an encroachment on the monument.
