  1. It is right step to get justice for Hindu community. There is need to form a combined trust on state level of various trust may be maintaining their identity to effectively put up issue to government and get it done at earliest. All Hindu irrespective of their political preferences should come forward for this noble cause to save Hindu religious places and for their development and social service of poor people of Hindu community which are being neglected by government agencies.
