Entrust Kukke Temple to Dalits, demands BC Federation

Posted on Dec 17th, 2011 and filed under Local News.

MANGALORE: The Dakshina Kannada and Udupi district Backward Classes
Federation which

has accused the government of hesitating to impose a ban on Made Snana
practice, has urged the

government to immediately hand over the Kukke Subrahamanya Temple to the Dalits.

In a press communiqué, the Federation said the elected representatives
elected by people of all

castes and creeds are committed to frame an act which prevents such practices.

"In case the government lacks the determination to stop the Made
Snana, let it hand over the

temple which was established by the Dalits to the Dalits themselves.
The temple need to have

Dalit priests and not Brahmin priests," the Federation said.

It also demanded that all religious heads condemned this evil
practice. The signatories to the

press communiqué include the Federation Vice President Vasudeva Bolur,
Secretary Jayananda

Bolur and Member Sanjeeva Shettigar.
