The Supreme Court said orally on 19 September that Guruvayur temple contributed ₹ 5 crore Soon after, the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund (CMDRF) Devastating 2018 floods in Kerala May be an “essentially benevolent” act by nature.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice UU Lalit observed this while ordering the parties in the case to maintain “status quo till further consideration”.

The temple had appealed against Kerala High Court verdict which declared the contribution of the temple management illegal on the ground that the money was the property of the deity and was obtained from the contributions deposited by the worshipers in the temple hundis.

“Isn’t the temple running a hospital for all the people who come for treatment… after all it is a temple of Lord Krishna,” he said. Haven’t you ‘heard of’ Vasudev Kutumbkami‘ (The world is one family),” Justice S Ravindra Bhat asked the caveats, who was the petitioner in the High Court.

Aryama Sundaram, senior advocate for the temple management, said everyone had contributed to Kerala’s flood relief efforts at that time. “Even the judges and lawyers had contributed to the aid,” submitted Mr. Sundaram.

Chief Justice Lalit orally asked that while the contribution of worshippers is generally used to upgrade the infrastructure and facilities in the temple, is it correct to say that the temple should be allowed only to those who enter its premises? Should be limited.

The High Court in a judgment in 2020 had found the contribution to be “bad in law”. A review bench of the High Court had in May this year agreed that the temple management has no right to contribute to the Chief Minister’s Fund or any other. Government body under Guruvayur Devaswom Act.

The state government had argued in the High Court that the decision of the temple management was in accordance with the Disaster Management Act. The temple’s resolve to donate to the CMDRF was to help a large population of people devastated by the floods. Many of the flood victims are devotees of the deity of the temple, Lord Guruvayoorappan.
