Hyderabad, Dec 11: Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) international president Praveen Togadia Thursday alleged that injustice is being meted out to Hindus in the newly created state of Telangana.

He told reporters here that it was like a Nizam's rule in Telangana as Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is showing discrimination against Hindus.

Togadia, who launched the website of Hyderabad unit of the VHP, said the state government is considering 12 percent reservations for Muslims, though both the high court and the Supreme Court have ruled against religion-based job quota.

He said it was a matter of concern that the state government was doing nothing to provide jobs to Hindu youths but is more bothered about the minorities.

The VHP leader also criticised the TRS government for its scheme to provide financial assistance for the marriages of poor Muslim girls and wondered why there is no such facility for the marriages of poor Hindu girls.

Togadia sought strict action to stop evangelist activity near the Tirupati temple.

He said authorities have failed to implement the orders which ban the preaching of other religions on Tirumala Hills.

He said a "Hindu sammelan" will be held in Hyderabad Dec 25-29.
