Sylhet Hindus for repeal of bill on temple assets

Hindus in Sylhet held demonstrations on Wednesday demanding immediate
cancellation of the proposed draft ‘Temple property management,
recovery and protection law-2013’. Several hundred people of the
community under the banner of ‘divisional committee for
monastery-temple property protection and regaining’ brought out a
procession from in front of the ISCON Mandir at Mirabazar in the city
in the morning, held a rally at Court Point at noon and then handed a
memorandum to the deputy commissioner to push for the demand. Speakers
at the rally termed the proposed draft law ‘against the interest of
the Hindus’. They claimed that dishonest and affluent quarters would
get scope to grab the property of Hindu temples in the country if the
proposed law was approved. District unit president of Hindu-Buddhist
Oikya Parishad Biraj Madhav Chakrabarti, city unit general secretary
of Puja Celebration Committee, Rajat Kanti Bhattacharya, and city
president of Hindu-Buddhist Oikya Parishad Mrittunjay Dhar, among
others, also addressed the rally.
