Samuel Reddy's son tries to enter Tirupati with his footwear

This is a deliberate attempt by John Reddy to insult, outrage and rape Hindu religious sentiment by showing vicious disrespect to the Temple and the deity held sacred by millions of Hindus.

John Reddy had perpetrated a similar atrocity a few years ago. This is a case of repeat iconoclasm - showing disrespect to the sacred objects of faith by insisting on wearing footwear in the precincts of the Temple and outright bullying of Temple authorities by his band of goons - refusing to sign the obligatory declaration of faith in the Temple deity, Lord Venkateswara.

Is this secularism? Was this kind of deliberate sacrilege really necessary?
Would it be tolerated if a Hindu were to similarly show deliberate disrespect to objects of faith belonging to other religions?

I'm inclined to think that this was a calculated act of belligerence intended to demonstrate the power of christist evangelicals in Andhra and the emasculation of Hindus. John Reddy & family have openly promised "Bible Rajyam" in Andhra - this is a step in that direction - analogous to christist mischief in Sabarimalai, Kerala.

Unfortunately, these anti-national elements have reached critical mass in Andhra at a time when Telugu speaking brothers of different regions are indulging in fratricide. 

Personally, I am a supporter of the Telangana cause, but do not want the ruin of Andhra or the emasculation and enslavement of Hindus - in Andhra, Assam, Bengal, Kerala, Kashmir, Arunachal Pradesh or anywhere else.

fervently hope Hindus across Telangana, SeemAndhra and across Bharat remain united to crush these enemies of the Hindu nation.

Jai Telangana, Jai SeemAndhra,
Jai Bharat Mata!!!

#Hindu #Unity

Om Kranti, Kranti, Krantihih!!!

When Nikita S. Khrushchev and Nikolai A. Bulganin came to India in 1955, the Meenakshi Devi temple in Madurai was part of their tour itinerary. The were given temple honours of poornakumbham etc. I don't know whether they had their shoes on, or whether they were allowed in the presence of the deities.

In Kerala, men entering temples are now allowed to have their upper clothes on. But Dalai Lama was invited to enter a Ganapathi Bhagavan temple and offer worship while wearing his usual scarf/shawl over his upper body.
Both these incidents happened a very long time ago (and I am relating them from my memory), of course, but our tendency to allow foreigners and celebrities to do whatever they like has not gone away. Wendy Doniger et al. are current eaxmples.
