Politics India Hyderabad: BJP MLA accuses Srisailam MLA of promoting Muslims in temple town

The BJP MLA from Hyderabad has alleged that Srisailam temple was under the control of Muslims and all contracts and shops were monopolised by them. He alleged that these people were killing cows in the gaushala for beef.

However, Srisailam MLA Silpa Chakrapani Reddy offered to resign if allegations of harbouring Muslims in the temple town of Srisailam were proved by Raja Singh, the Goshamahal legislator.

Denying the charges, Silpa said he was ready for a debate after Sankranti.

Srisailam ― which houses one of the Jyotirlingas as well as a Shaktipeeth ― has been in the eye of controversy as Muslims are cornering the major revenue sources of commerce and business. Raja Singh had alleged that one Razaq, a contractor with Srisailam temple and his wife, a Hindu, was employed as a supervisor in the temple. He said Razaq was a close aide of Silpa Chakrapani Reddy while Razaq’s brother is a TDP leader. Irrespective of which party is in power, the Razaq brothers are controlling the temple with the help of political parties.

When contacted, Hyderabad MLA Raja Singh said that several cases had been pending against Razaq, which include transporting mutton in flower baskets. These flowers are used for puja in the temple.

Singh said Razaq’s wife, his alleged accomplice, supervises the gaushala. The BJP MLA said the beef clique was killing cows with the connivance of the supervisor and xonsuming its meat, which is prohibited in the temple town.

Rubbishing the allegation, Silpa Reddy said Muslims had been living in the temple town for ages and he became MLA only two years ago. He clarified that he had nothing to do with Razaq and Singh’s allegations were “baseless, malicious, mischievous”. He said the allegations were intended to provoke a section of the community and spreading ill-will in the locality.

Silpa claimed that he was a staunch Hindu by practice and had built temples with his own money. He challenged Singh to prove his allegations in the presence of Peetadhipathis at Srisailam after Sankranti and he was ready for any eventuality.
