Aggressive Danam Locks Temple!

Labour minister Danam Nagender, known for aggressive talk and behaviour, created a flutter on Thursday, when he, along with his followers, attacked an ISKCON temple on the premises of Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple on Road No. 12, Banjara Hills and locked it.

The followers of Danam ransacked the premises, uprooted the ‘Tulasi Kota”, damaged the furniture and vandalized the office. Danam even abused the ISKCON (a sect of Lord Krishna devotees) members in filthy language and accused them of molesting women in the name of devotion. He threatened them with dire consequences if they did not vacate the premises. He also behaved rudely with the local sub-inspector who tried to stop their vandalism.

The endowments department had given the land adjacent to the Narasimha Swamy temple to ISKCON sect to propagate the religious activities. This was not taken kindly by Danam, who had allegedly set his eyes on the temple lands. This led to the whole controversy. According to latest information, the police might arrest Nagender for vandalizing the premises.
