Temple Trustees Come Together


Perturbed by the increasing number of temple thefts and the authorities stand that the temple management should undertake security measures, trustees of around 300 temples in Goa have come together to form the Gomantak Mandir and Dharmik Sanstha Mahasangh (GMDSM).
Co-ordinator of the new organization Jayesh Thali pointed out that over the last six years more than 250 temples have been robbed while over 50 idols have been desecrated.

He regretted that instead of providing protection to the temples, the government was now trying to term many of them as illegal structures.
President of GMDSM Chandrakant Pandit accused the government of deliberately turning a blind eye to the desecration of temples and wondered what the police were really doing in the matter.
