Mangalore, Jan 9: Pravin Togadia, president of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said that government is taking over the management of some of the temple and is discriminating against the Hindus. Hindu activists will stage violent protest not only in Karnataka but throughout the country if the government does not relieve all the temples and Maths from its control.
Addressing the press meet held a Sanghaniketan hall on January 8, Wednesday, he said that government is targeting Hindus, through the proposed Anti-Superstition Bill and do not dare to target the Christians and Muslims.
