Only Hinduism for 110 KMs around Tirupati??? WTF?

Wow… SO much for being a secular state…. If we are a secular state, then how can we do such a thing? How can we take sides with any religion? Hey, Don’t get me wrong here. I am not pro-or-anti Hindu here. All I am saying is that I am fine if we were a Hindu country and prefer to be proclaimed as a Hindu country. In that case, cut the crap about being secular, democratic and all that. I fail to understand how this whole issue occured without much bloodshed or the usual i-kill-u-u-kill-me rigmarole. It’s a bit of an old news. But, still not very old for us to forget.

Hyderabad: Special VIP darshans, a possible dress code and now the Special Religious Zone status – the Tirupati Tirumala temple has drawn as much controversy as the wealth that it invites in its coffers.

Tirupati

One of the most popular Hindu pilgrimage sites in the country, Tirupati and 19 other temple towns in Andhra Pradesh have a special religious status thanks to the AP governments order number 747.

And the state law – that prevents the propagation of any religion other than Hinduism within 110 kilometres from the identified temples – has left many Christian groups feeling alienated.

Says National Coordinator, Global Council for Indian Christians, C Francis, “This is worse than our anti-conversion laws.”

The law was passed last month by a Congress government led by a Christian Chief Minister, YSR Reddy, but many in Andhra Pradesh feel the legislation has no place in a secular country.
