Bhartiye Mandir Hindu temple should receive Fair Go from all including Cumberland Council

Sydney, 2 November, 2018

Most of us, particularly members from Indian Australian community, know how Bhartiye Mandir Hindu temple in Regents Park, Sydney was vandalised on Sunday, 14 October, leading to desecration of idols and damage to the property in the tune of $50,000.

The temple management doesn’t have resources to find this money without support from the community and the local Council.

Bhartiye temple falls under the Cumberland Council, which has a reputation to be comprised of caring, responsive and good-hearted Councillors.

Fundraiser for Bhartiye Mandir: 👇

While few from our community including I will be hosting a fund-raiser on 16 November for the temple in a few days, it is equally pertinent for the Council to chip in with some monetary support. After all, one of the goals of the Council is to encourage and support a diverse neighbourhood. Helping a vandalised and damaged temple to stand on its feet will not only be a noble job by the Council, it will also be within the key priorities of the Council for the diversity and multiculturalism.

Money for this support can come from the Mayoral Community Fund and Community Grant Program.

It was noteworthy that the Cumberland Council supported our farmers against their drought hardship with substantial amount of money, for which the Council deserves our appreciation and gratitude.

Some support for the temple from the Council will also be an entirely justifiable and well-deserved action.

Our community is waiting for a positive outcome and a noble gesture from the Councillors of Cumberland Council.

We hope to have this temple to be restored in its original shape. 👇👇

FIAN condemns the desecration of and damage to a Hindu temple in Sydney

Sydney, 18 October, 2018

Press release: 18 October, 2018

FIAN condemns the desecration of and damage to a Hindu temple in Sydney

FIAN Press release Bhartiye Mandir attack

 

Federation of Indian Associations of NSW (FIAN) condemns in the strongest words the desecration and destruction of a place of worship for Hindu community in Sydney.

A Hindu Temple, Bhartiye Mandir, situated at Regents Park in Sydney, Australia was set on fire and all statues and icons of Indian Godheads have been smashed and left in ruin a few days ago. It has caused a lot of pain and anguish to members of Hindu community.

The temple has been there for about twenty years and but for an incident of stone throwing ten years ago, the  devotees of this temple have not had any problems until now. When devotees came at 6pm to open the temple on Sunday evening of 14th October 2018, they found smoke coming from inside their temple. Upon investigation, they found some people inside and when challenged, the miscreants jumped out of the window and vanished.

FIAN president, Dr Yadu Singh, has been in touch with the head priest of the temple, Pandit Paras Ram Maharaj and offered support and assistance in getting the culprits brought to the justice.

After a coup in Fiji, a large number of Fijians of Indian descent had migrated to Australia. About twenty years ago, some of them collected funds for the temple.

It is time for leaders of all faiths to come in their support and condemn this criminal act by a few vandals who do not represent real Australia.

It is time for elected local, state and federal representatives to stand in solidarity with the Hindu community.

It is time that political leadership in state and federal Parliaments to do everything to send out a message that there is no place for this type of hateful activities in Australia, and people are free to follow and celebrate their religions in this country.

It’s totally unacceptable to do this to places of worship of any religion.

NSW Police should do everything to find out the culprits and charge them. Let’s make sure it never happens again.

We are deeply anguished and saddened to see this happen in a peaceful, tolerant and a multicultural nation.

Our thoughts and solidarity are with the Hindu community in Australia.

Girls write heartwarming letter for ‘hero’ dad

Girl’s touching letter about dad that won him ‘Father of the Year’

The 49-year-old father-of-two beat more than 1000 other nominees to become Victoria’s Father of the Year.

A Victorian dad has beaten more than 1000 other nominations to become the state’s father of the year, thanks to a touching nomination by his two daughters who describe him as a “real life superhero”.

The reason for Sandeep Jadhav’s honour is best summed up by his 13-year-old daughter Sachi.

“He is always encouraging me to have a go even if you fail, take on a challenge even if you don’t succeed and to always be kind to others,” she said in her speech at Friday’s ceremony.

Sachi and her 16-year-old sister Kushi secretly put their dad’s name forward.

They wrote a letter explaining: “Our dad always says, think outside the box and if you cannot think outside the box, then you should make the box bigger.”

In the letter, the girls said their dad was a “real life superhero”.

“He doesn’t wear a cape though, because he wears army uniform. He is always busy protecting the country. When he has free time he is busy mentoring,” the girls wrote.

The 49-year-old is an electrical engineer in the army but also volunteers as a tutor and mentor, helping hundreds of students with maths and science.

Mr Jadhav described the honour as “a tremendous surprise”.

“Last week I didn’t know about this,” he said.

His wife Kiran is also proud.

“The thing I love about him is he treats all the students exactly like what he treats the girls,” she said.

Sandeep said he enjoys helping people.

“When somebody comes to me and says ‘Thanks Sandeep’, or ‘Thanks Sunny’ – it’s a huge feeling for me,” he said.
