A massive awareness campaign by over 400 people was held to protect Hindu Temples in India.

Rosemont, IL- May 6, 2007 – A massive protest campaign organized by Save Temples forum was attended by about 500 Concerned people during the visit of Mr. Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, Chief Minister of the South Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. Mr. Reddy was at the Donald Stephens Convention Center to attend a Reception hosted by organizations TANA and ATA. People including many doctors, IT professionals, businessmen were protesting the policies of Mr. Reddy's Government which have been highly detrimental to the Hindu institutions including temples.

The protest was held from 3:00 PM till 6:30 PM which included men, women and children of different nationalities from all around the country. Most of the concerned participants attended in response to the fliers and advertisements placed in various temples and various Indo-American newspapers. Many participants responded to the continuous bad news such as temple land scams, cancellation of Sri Rama Navami as Hindu Holiday and miuse of temple funds., Frustrated youth spontaneously arrange the protest and it was so overwhelming that it was beyond their expectations. Members of several organizations such as ISKCON, Christians against proselytism, Indian American intellectual forum, Vishwa Hindu Parishad also joined the protest.

One of the protesters, Mr. Durga Prasad from Arizona, was on Fast without taking even water starting on Friday night till the protest was concluded. He provided tremendous inspiration to the fellow protesters.

The protesters demanded repealing the Hindu Endowments Act, religious freedom for Hindus in practicing Hindu religion and management of Hindu institutions. The participants raised slogans such as 'Repeal Hindu Endowments Act', 'Hands off..... temples', '1-2-3.... keep temples free', Eadukondalavada Venkataramana Govinda Govinda etc. and sang devotional hymns.

Representatives Meet the Chief Minister

V. V. Prakasa Rao and Prasad Yalamanchi have been in constant contact with Dr. Gavva Chandra Reddy, the president of ATA and Dr. Bandla Hanumaiah, the president of TANA. They have been very cooperative with our request to meet the Chief Minister and also expressed their concern for the welfare of the Temples. At the request of Dr. Gavvaa, V. V. Prakasa Rao and Prasad Yelamanchi met with Hon. Chief Minister, Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy in Hyatt Hotel in Chicago. They expressed concerns of all Hindus regarding the plight of the temples in Andhra Pradesh by saying that thousands of acres of Temple lands have been sold, Temples' revenues have been diverted to non-Hindu causes, numerous Temples have been demolished and hundreds of Temple lands have been allowed to be encroached. They mentioned that the Endowment Act should be repealed. Mr. Reddy mentioned about the recent amendment to the Endowment Act giving autonomy to about 30,000 temples with less than Rs 50,000 annual income and giving Rs 2500 for these Temples to support Dhup Deepa Naivedyam program; release of Shirdi Sai Baba temples to independent management trustees; and legislation to ban missionary activities near major temples. When the representatives mentioned that although the Hindu community was happy to read the news about these developments, they again requested the repeal of the Endowment Act. They mentioned that Hindu Temples should enjoy the same freedom and independence as other two major religions. Then they submitted a "Memorandum of Concerns to Hon. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, Chief Minister, Andhra Pradesh" Mr. Reddy scanned through the memorandum, smiled and said, "Anything is possible," and that he would consider the demands.

Plan to disrupt the Peaceful Protest was foiled in Chicago

On May 6, 2007 nearly 500 people were peacefully protesting in Chicago expressing their concern for the plight of Hindu Temples in Andhra Pradesh during Honorable Chief Minister's visit to USA. <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>A group of five people came into the middle of demonstration and started asking why we were doing the protest. One of the Protesters gave the booklet containing the information. Protesters took the booklets when they did not want. Then one gentleman, later identified as Dr. Jayachand Pallekonda went behind Mr Praveen Gandhi and started choking his throat with his fingers. Mr Gandhi was not even able to shout as his throat was being pressed very hard. Nearby police saw the incident immediately, rushed behind Dr Pallekonda pulled his hands off Mr Gandhi and handcuffed him. Then took away from the Protest area and filed a case. Hearing is set for May 23, 2007 in Rosemont, Il. Mr. Gandhi was taken to the emergency hospital the next day due to the swollen glands. Dr. Pallekonda is seen on the left side of the picture with black outfit.

Did Police arrested Dr. Jayachand Pallekonda of FIACONA for attempted Murder?
Is he still in jail?
It just shows violent nature of FIACONA.

Or he can flash his faith card.

Is he married to Sue Pallekonda, Malayasian OBGYN?

Jayachand Pallekonda has been vocal in the anti-Gujarat lobby.

EJs are on a rampage and very confident to attack some one in the US in the presence of the Police.

Also what is a EJ protesting about Gujarat in a Mallika Sarabhai(Liberal/Left icon) function? Ref post #6.

If my memory serves right, some members of Mallika Sarabhai troupe complained about some payment issues and filed a PIL Sarabhai and her agent. Of course, since it was Gujarat where even a sparrow can't flap it's wings without alerting Modi HQ, it had to be a "communal facists plot by the fundamentalist saffronistas" against her <!--emo&Rolleyes--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='rolleyes.gif' /><!--endemo-->
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->On October 19, 2003, Manushi Shah and V K Saxena of National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) had filed a complaint at the Naranpura police station against Sarabhai and her agent Dhimant Upadhyay.

The two had claimed that they along with others were cheated by Mallika and her agent who had promised to help them immigration to US posing by taking them as members of her “cultural troupe”.

Shah filed a complaint after their trip to the US and Brazil got cancelled. She claimed that Sarabhai did not refund money.

Hey, but what the hell, she's just been recently granted some lakhs by Govt of India to do some cultural documentary on Gujarat.
Perhaps she'll help bail out Pallekonda and return the good deed.
Did Pallekonda signed against Hindus on CA text books?

<b>Murder attempt on a protestor </b>
Dr. Jayachand Pallekonda, President of Federation of Indian American Christian Organizations in North America, tried to choke one of the protesters (name withheld on request) unprovoked. The Chicago police who are on high alert pounced on and arrested the Christian leader. The court proceeding are pending against him. Here is his photo of the assaulter felicitating Mr. YS Rajasekhar Reddy in the reception.

Viren in post #9 refers to the case of people filing case of cheating in 2003 wrt not refuding money for dance troop immigration scam. Note in 2007 TRS of AP is in total disarray due to the immigration scams on false pretences- spouse of diplomat passport holders.

So looks like its more widespread all over India.

I would like to take another shot at this question.
Sue Pallekonda is married to a doctor named Vinod Pallekonda, who appears to be Jayachand's son. So, in all probability, Sue is Jayachand's daughter-in-law.
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Mr. Hanmanth Reddy as ATA President Upset Over Report on Assault Arrest of FIACONA ex-President</b>

Fundamentalist leader calls report of attempted murder and arrest "fundamentalist".

In an emailed response, Mr. Hanmanth Reddy as ATA President Hanmanth Reddy is quoted in a typically hate-filled outburst as calling the report of the arrest of FIACONA ex-president Dr. Pallekonda for attempted murder of a 70-year-old, "fundamentalist garbage".  It was not known if the ex-President was referring to the Chicago Police department, or the Public Prosecutor in these terms, or whether he was expressing FIACONA leaders' apparent distaste for the rule of law.
Dr Pallekonda's son at Rajeev's blog

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->My name is Vinay Pallekonda. Yes, as you intelligent people may see, I share the same name as the "terrible crusader" that tried to "kill" a peaceful protester. I read all the internet stories with awe and wonder how with a few words you could make a person appear completely what they are not.

Let me give you a little background on this man that you are trying to vilify. He is the father of four children and the husband to a wife (for the last 40 plus years). He is an educated man in the zenith of his life. He has never harmed anyone EVER in his life. He is nearing retirement age. He has lived a full life that he is very proud of. He raised three sons who if any of you would meet are exceptional accomplished, decent, loving human beings. They went on to all become doctors. They went on to marry wonderful women who have blessed Mr. and Mrs. Pallekonda with seven beautiful grandchildren with one more on the way. Two out to the three daughter-in-laws of Mr. Jayachand Pallekonda are physicians as well. The other daughter-in-law is an accomplished nurse who works for a high powered medical company. His daughter is a doctor as well who married married a cardiologist WHO IS FROM A PROMINENT HINDHU FAMILY. All in all, he has seven children as doctors and one nurse.

The Pallekonda family made up of many medical professionals are US citizens as is Mr. Pallekonda, but they have a deep love for their mother land. They often go back and serve the indigent population in free clinics at least once a year. http://www.indianamericancouncil.org/photo...ery/default.htm

Mr. Jayachand is a hard working man, who is in the sunset of his career and life. He has accomplished more than most of us hope for in our own lives. He is happy in life. He has financial security, a loving family, and is a peaceful loving man.

So pray tell why he would go behind a protester and "choke him until his glands are swollen". The answer is HE WOULDN'T. So please I ask all who visit this site, let's STOP these false accusations based on some very suspicious photographs that basically amounts to propaganda. Let's stop this nasty accusations of a man who has no tainted past. This situation with got way out of hand, I am sure for everyone who has any sense would agree, for political reasons.

From what i understand of the law in India and United States: a man is proven innocent until proven guilty. So essentially what we have here is a few pictures and video clips that someone takes an fabricates a fantastic tale.

If anyone wishes to have more intelligent discussion regarding this matter please do not hesistate to email me at: xxx

Thank You,
Vinay Pallekonda, MD
<sarcasm> I hope authorities will consider how nice a father, husband etc.. is this Dr Jaychand Pallekonda and set him free with slap on the wrist. </sarcasm>

There are some good responses on Rajeev's site, read it there.

Oh yes, and a 70 year old Hindu man in emergency ward.
He can also claim police just arrested him because he is from doctor's family and got lot of money and they are just jealous..
Maybe Indian christos will learn it does not pay to start terrorising Hindus overseas as they have been doing regularly in India. When elsewhere, they should remember where they are and not do it so openly as they do in India - everyone knows the government and media in India is on their side and will even spin it their way. But it just doesn't fly in other countries.

JP forgot this basic rule, and now his son ViP is trying to pretend the elephant in the living room is not there. This is not India where Congressis can make it look like certain events never happened. Authorities in Nu Joisie have by now probably already inventorised JP's stuff.

ViP's only hope is to ask for lots of moolah from their friends Andhra's christoterrorist CM and the Foreign Tyrant. He can then try to bribe the NJ police with it. But Sonia and her Andhra minion will have to decide whether the current FIACONA president is worth all that. They might find him expendable and replaceable.

Sick people. I can't believe they're actually trying to excuse injuring another and want to pretend the throttling never happened. Indian Christos. It's what jeebus and the holy spaghetti inspire them to do - like the throttling, then lying about it in this case. All's fair in christianity and islam, as long as you are in the business of making more sheep for jehovallah to feast on.
