Chilkur supports Removal of Article 370

The Modi government’s decisions, to neuter Article 370 of our Constitution and to reorganise the State of Jammu and Kashmir, are truly epochal.

Article 370 was the veritable foundation on which the bigoted Muslim State of J&K was raised on the territory of secular India.

It took extraordinary political will and immense courage, to dismantle the privileged edifice that sustained jihad in Kashmir.

No wonder this ‘temporary‘ provision in our Constitution took so many decades to go. We, the patriotic Indians in general, and those from the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir strewn across the globe, in particular, are celebrating. Individuals or groups, speaking in our name to cast aspersions on the decisions or to attribute questionable motives, are a bunch of imposters trying to sow confusion and vitiate the atmosphere.

They never spoke up or acted as Kashmiri Pandits in the past even when the community was subjected to blood and gore and hounded out of the valley. Their dubious role in the past vis a vis the matter of Hindu genocide in Kashmir is a matter of record.

Time and again they have emerged from the ranks of victims and survivors, only to collaborate with the perpetrators of our genocide. We, the resilient Kashmiri Hindus and Sikhs, patriotic Kashmiri Muslims, valiant Dogras, proud Ladakhis and the rest of the conscientious Indians hail these emancipating decisions and cannot wait to see them implemented, resolutely, on the ground.

We want all the thousands of temples demolished in Kashmir to be revived.

We promise our unflinching support to the government for this cause and are available to contribute in all the manner we can.

C S Rangarajan belongs to the family of Hereditary Archaka cum Trustees of the famous Sri Chilkur Balaji Venkateswara Swamy Temple of Telangana State. He completed his B.E (Biomedical Engineering) from the Osmania University in June, 1988. He was educated in Agama Sastras as well and passed Archaka Pravesha Exam in 1995. He worked in many Medical Device companies before quitting the Engineering Profession to join in the Service of the Almighty at Chilkur at an age of 35 years. He felt this was a calling of God to help the worshippers at the Temple have a better devotional experience through his service. Most important is the fact that he has been assisting his father Dr M V Soundara Rajan in running the Temples Protection Movement from Chilkur Balaji temple which has set a unique trend against Commercialisation and Politicisation of Temple worship. He assists his father in running the Trilingual Monthly Journal VAK which is the voice of Temples. He has always been striving for revival of ancient temples and has played a key role in sensitizing the devotees on the need to revive the ancient temples in their ancestral villages. He has also taken keen interest in the welfare of the society at large by not only striving for inculcating devotional spirit in the devotees visiting Chilkur temple but also ensuring that the temple plays a role in the upliftment of the weaker sections through such innovative initiatives as motivating devotees to wear handlooms on Saturdays providing support to the weavers’ community. He has also played a major role in the movement to reform the temple system and also highlighting the pitiable state of the Archaka community leading eventually to the amendment of the draconian 30/87 Andra Pradesh Endowments Act . He has been instrumental in development of the Conservation manual for the Endowments Department by REACH Foundation. His LLM Thesis is now being published by the Temples Protection Movement


  1. The whole of Kashmir is the part of Bharat, the MAHABHARAT, and all the thousands of temples destroyed by Muslim Immigrants, must be rebuilt as soon as possible to bring back heavenly peace for everyone to live and enjoy the spiritual part of the world.

  2. Yes, we need to protect Dharma, if we want to peace and justice in life. It is a must, so said Dharmo rakshati rakshita. In the way to protect Dharma, we have to protect Dharmik. Because without Dharmik there won’t be Dharma. It is duty of every citizen to protect and support Dharmik and eliminate the Rakshas.

  3. It was very painful, how for 72years we were ignorant of such venomous article #370 & 35A, ruining our country. We have to thank Mr.Modiji team for bringing us to light.

    • The abrogation of 370 does not require any support from anybody since it is inherent and logically embedded by the Makers who have their first consent of its annulment. Whether it was temporary or permanent is also irrelevant. Why they did not scrap despite their consent is a question just like why the account was not credited by fifteen lakhs despite promise? Why black-money did not come despite assurances? The promises and assurances were true jumlas. But the provision of abrogation was not a jumla. It is a fact well documented. For some this fact was irritating just like a scratch record. Instead of changing the record they removed the needle and the player is still on now with a broken record. If peace and calmness prevails then the timely removal of needle is justified. Otherwise broken records will create unpleasant sight and the device now cannot be switched-off. The situation afte the abrogation will become beyond control and worse than the earlier one. The presence of Article 370,35A was good or its absence will take a long time to be judged. Meanwhile we should have good and not high hopes.
