Petition against mismanagement of Temple Funds by the Tamil Nadu Govt.

The Indic Collective Trust has filed a writ petition before the Madras High Court seeking to restrain the Tamil Nadu Department of Tourism, Culture and Religious Endowments and the TNHRCE Department from mismanagement and misappropriation of funds belonging to Hindu religious institutions. As an interim relief, ICT has prayed for an injunction on TNHRCE’s handling of these funds and an external audit of all the transactions made therefrom. The matter was admitted on 31 July 2020. The petition can be accessed from below:

    “Another high cases count day. When will India tame the Covid monster?”

    + 1st line of defense — Mask
    + 2nd line of defense — Handwash
    + 3rd line of defense — Regular gargling/mouthwash

    We are following 1 and 2, but not 3. That is the key to taming this monster
