Christian missionaries plaguing Tirumala – The Hindu

Tirumala  Tirupati Devasthana

TIRUMALA / TIRUPATI: After lying low for some time, the problem of proselytism has reared up its ugly head once again at Tirumala, the abode of Lord Venkateswara. The issue which rocked the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthana about six years ago, has erupted again as evidenced by the fact that in a raid conducted by the TTD’s Vigilance and Security personnel on three houses in the TTD staff quarters at Tirumala late on Monday night following a tip-off, bundles of religious publications, wall-posters and such other propaganda material belonging to Christian missionaries were reportedly recovered.

The Vigilance sleuths raided the houses of Eswaraiah, Krishnamma and Yasodamma — all working as ‘sweepers’ in the TTD’s Health Department — acting on a tip-off alleging that they were engaged in ‘missionary activities’ and religious propagation in their quarters at Tirumala.

The trio was immediately taken into custody for interrogation in view of a blanket ban imposed by the government on any kind of religious activities other than Hindu religion at Tirumala and on propagation of other religion in and around the hill temple of Lord Venkateswara and also in the areas under its jurisdiction both on and off the Tirumala hills. Meanwhile, the Vigilance Wing reported the matter to the higher-ups in the TTD who are said to be contemplating shifting all the three staffers to Tirupati with immediate effect, pending further enquiry.

TTD slammed

Meanwhile, a BJP team led by its State official spokesperson, G. Bhanuprakash Reddy at a press meet here expressed its shock over the controversial ‘missionary activities’ flaring up again at Tirumala, hurting the psyche of thousands of devotees that throng Tirumala daily from all over India.

The BJP leaders slammed the TTD for its laxity on such a sensitive issue, especially at Tirumala, the abode of Lord Venkateshwara and urged its top-brass to go all out to end the ‘menace’ once and for all. – The Hindu, 25 July 2012

  1. When Hindus never bother to convert anybody these are shameless and not self respecting people who are entering the sacred place of Hindus.

  2. do you think so. nope, no one can stop rahul coming to power. tell me how will BJP win Delhi, UP, Rajasthan, AP, Kerala, WB, JK, North east and not have support from Orissa and TN, all of which state will easily support UPA. WAKE UP, BJP is a dead party for it has weak non inspiring leaders. Gadkari said that the 4 PM hopefuls from BJP were Sushma, Modi, Rajnath and Jaitley. Sushma with her big mouth is a bad choice, Jaitley has no mass base except his intellectual prowess and Rajnath has no great mass base nor pan India Appeal. Only Modi has PAN India appeal but Allies are worried. So how will BJP WIN. Me, my children and grandchildren as well will BOW TO Rahul, then his children and then his grandchildren. Arent we all addicted to dynasties for the past 5000 yrs.

  4. If I remember correct, it was YSR who had desecrated the temple during his tenure and got the appropriate blessings. His entire family is ruined.

    It is all enacted by Sonia Gandhi Inc and I have no doubt that in 2014, the people will destroy her dynasty and generation also.
