Dear Sir, Hon. Prime Minister, and other respectable leaders:

Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah - Dharma protects those who uphold or protect dharma.

A temple is a sacred place of Hindus where teachings of Dharma are bestowed upon the sanatanis. A Hindu temple is revered as the abode of the god. A temple in Hindu Dharma or religion helps the Hindus transcend into their inner spiritual self and find peace. It takes in-depth analysis and research to really understand the true meaning, glory and greatness of Hindu temples.

An attack on these sacred places is nothing but an expression of hatred towards Hindus. Every Hindu temple is constructed and operated independently solely on public funds. Hindu temples generously provide a huge share of their funds to the government and also to conduct many charity events. Unfortunately the governments of Andhra Pradesh has failed to protect Hindu temples.  There is news about this type of incidents happening in Andhra Pradesh almost on a daily basis.  This has left the Hindus of the region devastated and deprived of their rights.  There has been continuous destruction and desecration of Hindu temples in many parts of the world. Recently in Pakistan a Hindu temple was burned to ground. We had temples destroyed in Bharat (India) as well. Should the Hindus start believing that Hindus in India are no better than Hindus in Pakistan?  India is a secular country and every citizen should have a right to freedom of religion including Hindus.

We plea the government to take immediate action on the miscreants who could be in the form of individuals, elected members, NGOs or political fringe groups.

Finally, we look forward for your assurance on the protection of Dharma for the people of Bharat (India).
