Authorities of the Attukal Bhagavathy temple will put up for discussion a letter from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) during the temple committee’s monthly meeting scheduled for September 26.

The RBI had submitted a letter to the Attukal Temple Trust on August 29 seeking permission to calculate the stock of gold in the temple’s possession.

Trust secretary Jyothish Kumar told The Hindu that the trust office-bearers had reservations about the request, and felt that it unfairly targeted only Hindu religious institutions.

The trust also believed that the RBI move was against the principles of the Constitution which underlined equality and prohibited any discrimination on the grounds of religion.
