Nonhindus cannot enter temple-IBN2jun2007

M.B.Nataraj
A bunch of provincial, anachronistic, myopic priests who cannot see that the primary reason Hinduism has survived for eons is because of its tolerance. Lose that you have lost out on an entire philosophy not a religion. They were more likely guilty of seeking media glare by their actions rather than by any desire to uphold "Hinduism".They were probably inspired by the fatwas and similar powers wielded by other religions.It is also against the concepts of a secular India. Probably no other religion prevents nonadherents from entering.How were the priests planning to confirm the religious orientation of the visitors?and how was the degree of adherence to the religion to be determined?Do they have similar standards of qualification for priesthood other than inherited?If we can deprive the Rajas and Maharajas of their power in democratic India, the legislation needs to be suitably changed to deprive the priests of this kind of usurped power.
