Published photo, news on Bhagya Laxmi temple totally false:Niranjan
Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) General Secretary G Niranjan today alleged the people of Hyderabad City feel that the photo and news published in the Hindu newspaper in connection with the Bhagya Laxmi Temple at Charminar was totally false, fabricated, misguiding and distorting the truth.
In a media statement here, he said "no original Hyderabadi believes it. The news item on this sensitive issue during this tense situation is ill motivated." The Congress leader said the Charminar is having places of worship of both the communities at the site for several centuries sending a message to the entire world about rich secular traditions of the Gangajamuni Tehzeeb of Hyderabad City through the tourists visiting from all corners of the world.
The reporter tried to re-write the history of Hyderabad without knowing the history of the Temple and verifying the facts with native Citizens of Hyderabad and respecting the sentiments of the people.
"No one can deny the existence of Matha Idol in a small 'Shilakaram' and which is worshipped by all," he said.
