Tirupati: City-based Tirupati United Christian Churches (TUCC) urged the leaders of political parties to refrain from inciting religious feelings and stressed on maintaining communal harmony.
At the TUCC emergency meeting held here on Friday under the chair of TUCC honorary president Pastor Arul Arasu condemned the attacks on Hindu temples in the state and requested the government to see that those responsible for the heinous act of desecration of the temples were arrested immediately.
Aral Arasu observed that it was sad that some leaders blamed the peace loving Christians for the unlawful and unfortunate attacks on temples.
Reacting on TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu criticizing the government for its Christian welfare measures, he said that it was not proper on the part of a senior leader like Chandrababu speaking against the welfare measures as it was he who introduced many of them like financial support for Jerusalem Yatra, Chandranna Christmas Kanuka, Christian Welfare Corporation for providing financial support to the members of Christian community for taking up self-employment and also funds for repairs of Churches in the state.
He also criticised BJP Telangana president and MP Bandi Sanjay seeking Tirupati voter to decide on voting either in favour of the party upholding Bhagavat Geeta or to the party upholding Bible. His remarks are against the Constitution and he should withdraw it, he said seeking action on Sanjay for violating the Constitution.
