New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday pulled up the Uttar Pradesh government for lack of law to manage temples or religious endowments.

A Bench, headed by Justice N.V. Ramana, asked whether anybody could build a temple and collect money from public in UP and asked the state to apprise the court whether it would bring a proper law to manage temples and religious endowments.

“Can you do anything on the basis of your executive order? This is anarchy,” the court said while hearing a matter related to management of an ancient temple in Bulandshahr.

The top court was hearing a plea challenging the Allahabad High Court order that said the offerings made by devotees at the 300-year-old Bulandshahr temple would be given to the priests.
