Re: “A Round of Applause for Fremont, USA

In your article's View of above paragraph: "This culture stew is the subject of a new film produced under the aegis of the Pluralism Project, a group from Harvard University that has been mapping US religious diversity. In Fremont, USA, filmmakers Elinor Pierce and Oakland resident Rachel Antell tackle Fremont's laudable efforts to deal with cultural and religious diversity through civic engagement. The film, subtitled A City's Encounter with Religious Diversity, explores the cultural changes that have come to Fremont. The film focuses primarily on relations between Protestants and practitioners of Asian religious traditions. All the figures interviewed agree that the city council and bureaucracy have been very supportive of the growth of different traditions and communities. Fremont has an active Human Relations Commission and has made efforts to employ a diverse workforce. For people concerned about the relationship between government and religion, it is interesting that Fremont uses communities of faith as a way to contact its ethnic populations, " how your film will show the following draconian aspect of the so called Fremont Hindu Temple (FHT) and FIA religious and political cultures? What you can deliver to public justice, if the justice system failed?

§§3500-3509 of Fremont Municipal Code

1. The Complainant, Dr. Brij Mohan Dhir, lives in the City of Fremont. Dr. Dhir is citizen of United States of America. Dr. Dhir is a student of Doctor of Juridical Science in Golden Gate University, San Francisco, California. The inter-groups or diverse groups are the common directors of the Vedic Dharma Samaj and Federation of Indian Association. The Vedic Dharma Samaj is located at 3676 Delaware Drive, Fremont, CA 94538 and email at templeadmin@fremonttempe.org. The Federation of Indian Association is located at Federation of Indian Association, C/O Dr. Romesh Japra, 1900 Mowry Avenue, Suite 201, Fremont, CA 94539 and email at FIAOnlineOrg@gmail.com.

2. This Complaint is filed against the Board of Directors of Vedic Dharma Samaj as defined in the original articles and bylaws of the year 1981 and their amendment of the years 1984 and 1987. Vedic Dharma Samaj is known as Fremont Hindu Temple (hereafter FHT). FHT has its website know as www.fremonttemple.org. The Federation of Indian Association (FIA) is a non-profit and tax exempt non- religious corporation. The Vedic Dharma Samaj is a non-profit and tax exempt religious corporation. FIA has its own website: http://www.fiaonline.info/. Both FIA and FHT are incorporated under the laws of the State of California. Both FIA and HFT had common directors of their respective governing bodies. In FIA and HFT the common directors are Dr. Romesh Japra, Veeru Vuppala, Vijaya Asuri, Dr. Pawan Chadha, Brij Chandok, Ram Malik, Keshav Chopra, Dharminder Dewan. FIA has on its advisory board Congressman Pete Stark, Attorney General Jerry Brown, Assembly-member Alberto Toricco, Supervisor Scott Haggerty, Fremont Mayor Bob Wasserman, Vice Mayor Anu Natrajan, Fremont Council Members: Bill Harrison, S. Chan, Bob Wieckowski.

3. The Board of Directors is described as Board of Trustees, Management Board, and Joint Board. The members of these three boards are called the general body. Devotees those are not members of these boards are called members of general community, who have rights to review the minutes of the Board of Directors and Management Board. The Board of Trustees consist those members, who paid $1500 every year. The Management Board consists of those members, who paid $101 as annual member and $501 as life members. Now, Dr. Pawan Chadha as Chair, Romesh Japra as Co-Chair, Rajesh Verma, Lalit Mathur, Mrs. Manorama Joshi, Surya Patnaik, Brij Chandhok, Gokal Gupta, Hiralal Birla, Vijay Bhat, Anup Singh, Subru Bhat, Gagan Kohli are trustees of FHT.

Attached Exhibit-“A” is copy of the common directors of the FHT and FIA.

4. Thus, there are different inter-groups in the FHT. There were 21 members of Board of Directors. There are around 350 paid members including trustees, annual members, and life members of the temple as published by FHT in the registered members list of the year 2009. There are around 30,000 devotees, who attend the FHT located in the City of Fremont. These devotees belong to different states of India like Punjab, Gujrat, South India, Maharashtra, Rajastan, Uttar Pradesh, Behar, among others, and different faiths in Hindu religion. Attached Exhibit-“B,” collectively, is the copy of Articles of Incorporation, 1981, 1984, and 1987 Bylaws.

APPLICATION OF THE ABOVE LAWS TO ABOVE FACTS TO ELIMINATE THE PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION IN THE CITY OF FREMONT

PROBLEM AND CAUSES

6. The problems are many; however, the basic problems are unfair selections and elections than fair elections since the year 1984 amendment in the original articles and bylaws and misuses of million dollars.

UNFAIR SELECTIONS AND ELECTIONS THAN FAIR ELECTIONS IN FHT TANTAMOUNT TO PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION SINCE THE YEAR 1984

7. The cause of this unfair selection since 1984 is the amendment of the year 1984 in the original articles and bylaws of the year 1981. Dr. Ramanand Prasad, Rajinder Sharma pleaded and deposed that Dr. Romesh Japra amended the 1981 original articles and bylaws in the year 1984 by prejudice and discrimination (by coercion, fraud, and illegality as alleged in pleadings and depositions in the above case). Dr. Japra deposed that Tej Singh took over the management of the FHT by amendment of the year 1984 before Dr. Japra’s becoming the Chair of the FHT. Later, in the year 1987, they made another amendment to offer the membership to devotees by paying $ 101 etc. Dr. Japra or Gokal Gupta failed to produce any minutes of the resolution of the year 1984. Dr. Prasad and Sharma maintained that the unfair selection was done by Dr. Japra not by Tej Singh.

8. Before the 1984 amendment, the board of directors consist 21 members retiring every two years, and the board members were added by nomination from the devotees at large. In the year 1981, FHT was incorporated by 11 persons. Dr. Ramanand Prasad was the founding members of FHT.

9. After the amendment of the year 1984, no election was held neither for board of trustees and management board. There was no list of registered paid members. However, after filing the lawsuit in the United States District Court, Northern California, in the year 2005, FHT alleged that there was election of the management board, but not the election of the board of trustees. Dr. Prasad deposed that the elections were never taken place in the FHT, the positions of the board of trustees and management board of FHT are filled from the Dr. Japra’s house Dr. Japra Mahal or Dr. Japra Palace.

10. In the year 2006, Gokal Gupta was Chair and Dr. Japra was Co-Chair in the FHT. In the year 2007, Dr. Pawan Chadha was shown elected as the position was surrendered by Gupta. In fact, Dr. Pawan Chadha was not elected. Dr. Japra surrendered his position of Co-Chair to Gokal Gupta. These facts about elections were misrepresented. See, Pleadings and Depositions as may be produced at or before the time of hearing before Human Relations Commission.

11. In the year 2009, first time a list of registered paid members was shown on the FHT website and notice board to elect the members of the management board. The election of management board was challenged by Dr. Dhir on or before the dates of prejudicial and discriminatory elections. Dr. Japra was selected as Chair of the board of trustees, but it was challenged by Dr. Dhir in the public meeting. In response to that Yogi Chug admitted that Dr. Japra’s selection was shown wrongly on the FHT website. Later, Vedic Sandesh of 2009 shows that Dr. Japra is selected as Co-Chair and Dr. Chadha is show as Chair.

MEMBERSHIP OF DR. DHIR WAS NOT ACCEPTED BY FHT CASUED PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION

12. On 08/14/2008, Dr. Dhir applied for annual membership, after paying $101. FHT issued the acknowledgement receipt number 6881. On 09/23/2008, FHT did not accept the membership application at that time because of the case number RG07-318802 and no good faith efforts were made, even, when Ram Malik (who declared Dr. Dhir as evil in parking lots of FHT before devotees, which was objected, even now, by Dr. Dhir) and Keshav Chopra were appointed for mediation and meetings, when Dr. Japra embraced Dr. Dhir in political gathering of 200 persons in Japra Mahal, where Anu Natrajan, other political personalities were honored for winning the City elections, and Dr. Japra neglected to meet me and my uncle in his house, and later in his office. See, Attachment Exhibit-“C,” collectively, is the copy of letter not accepting the membership of Dr. Dhir after issuance of acknowledgement receipt by Temple Management issued by Temple Administrator

MISUSE OF MILLION DOLLARS AND ASSETS OF FHT CAUSED PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION TO THE RIGHTS OF INTER-GROUPS INCLUDING THE HUMAN RELATIONS TO DR. DHIR

13. From the year 2004, FHT made additions and improvements of kitchen, Dinning Hall, Landscaping, and temple enhancements, Gopuram entrance, Havan Kund, and covered walkway. Around millions dollars are shown on its expenses without approval of the devotees or general body members. Accounts are not audited as they are still not correct and accurate. In deposition, Dr. Salwan, as Chair or Chief Financial Officer, challenged the accounts of Gupta, and alleged Gupta is supported by Dr. Japra and his cohorts in misuse of the FHA funds and assets. Recently, in the month of July-August 2009, Dr. Japra and his cohorts distributed $10,000 from religious organization to non-religious organization, even on opposition of this distribution, that is, from FHT to Federation of Indian Associations (FIA). The resolution was passed by the common directors of FHT and FIA as dominated by Dr. Japra as Co-Chair and Trustee and President and Convener of FIA. See, Attachment Exhibit-“D,” Depositions of Dr. Japra, Gupta, and Dr. Dharam Pal Salwan, among others: http://apps.alameda.courts.ca.gov/domainweb/service?
ServiceName=DomainWebService&PageName=itree&Action=21769324, Exhibit-“D1,” is the copy of Email sent to HRC@fremont.gov on August 14, 2009 from dhirvs.guptarg07318802@gmail.com

DR. JAPRA AND HIS COHORTS PREJUDICIAL AND DISCRIMINATORY CONDUCTS TOWARDS DR. DHIR, DR. RAMANAND PRASAD, RAJINDER SHARMA, DR. SALWAN CAUSED BREACH OF PEACE

14. Dr. Dhir was prejudiced and discriminated by Tikka, Ashwani, Sharma, Amarjit Singh Bhatia, Yogi Chug, Keshav Chopra, Ram Malik, Nidhi Bhatnagar, and Dr. Chadha, among others, on instigation of Dr. Japra and Gupta. Not only Dr. Dhir, even Dr. Salwan, Dr. Ramanand Prasad, Rajinder Sharma, including Mark Cohen, Esq., the Judges, the Police Officers, and the Politicians, among others, were influenced not to justify the public cause as lead by Dr. Dhir in the email correspondences and in the class action litigation pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Alameda. Even Dr. Dhir was not allowed to speak from the FHT podium by Dr. Japra, Dr. Chadha and his cohorts when the 400 devotees wanted to hear view point of Dr. Dhir regarding elections, distribution of $10000 from FHT to FIA, frivolous defense of FHT, took over of FHT management by FIA team, etc. See, Attachment Exhibit-“D2,” is copy of: http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-301196?ref=feeds%2Flatest; email of 07/20/2009; Exhibit-“D3,” is copy of banners distributed FIA Parade on 8/16/2009.

AFTER THE PREJUDICIAL AND DISCRIMINATORY ORDERS OF THE JUDGE SABRAW, THE JUDGE BRICK DISMISSED THE CASE AGAINST FHT, GOKAL GUPTA, AND DR. JAPRA NOT AGAINST 146 DEFENDANTS

15. The Judges Sabraw and Brick were influenced by Dr. Japra through his Federation of Indian Association and Fund-raising links with politicians because they favor Dr. Japra’s not only abuse of process and suppression of evidence but also Dr. Japra’s defense of Complainants no membership with FHT because on August 13, 2008, the hon. Judge Brick dismissed the case of Dr. Dhir. The case was filed against 149 defendants including Dr. Pawan Chadha, Dr. Prasad, Sharma, and Dr. Salwan, Ram Malik, and Keshav Chopra, among others. Dr. Prasad, Sharma, and Dr. Salwan supported the allegations of Dr. Dhir in their answers and depositions. However, on 02/04/2009, the Hon. Judge had kept the matter for next hearing for Case Management Conference on 02/04/2010 in the department 17 of Superior Court of California, County of Alameda in case number RG-07-318802, Dhir vs. Gupta et. al. On 08/07/2009, the First Appellate Court dismissed the appeal number A123567 in default, for which Dr. Dhir is preparing motion to set aside the dismissal order if the Hon. Judge failed to grant the motion to set aside the order and judgment of August 13, 2008, which Dr. Dhir is preparing because the appeal might not have merits in view of the Judge Bricks order of 02/04/2009. Attached Exhibit-“E,” Register of Action, See also, http://apps.alameda.courts.ca.gov/domainweb/service?ServiceName
=DomainWebService&TemplateName=jsp/complitaction.html&
CaseNbr=RG07318802&CurrBatchNbr=1, See also, Exhibit-“E1,” is the copy of the order of 08/07/2009 passed by the Hon. Judge Brick.

FHT IS TAKEN OVER BY MEMBERS OF FIA LED BY DR. JAPRA WITH PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION BASED ON SOCIOECONOMIC, CIVIC INTERESTS, AND OTHER FACTORS, WHICH MAY CAUSE BREACH OF PEACE BECAUSE 30000 DEVOTEES DON’T LIKE THIS TAKE OVER

16. This is, publicly, known fact that the FHT is taken over by Dr. Japra since the year 1984 by prejudice and discrimination based on socioeconomic, civic interests, and other factors. Dr. Japra, Tej Singh as alleged by Dr. Japra, took over the board of directors by amending the 1981 articles and bylaws by amendment of the year 1984. This amendment of the year 1984 is prejudicial and discriminatory. Dr. Japra changed the non-paid membership to paid membership. The paid membership was only if paid $5000 and $1500 every year to become the trustee of the FHT. Later, after Dr. Dhir case filed, FHT, by way of prejudice and discrimination, had shown that any devotee can become annual member, life member, and trustee member, by paying $101, $501, and $1501, respectively. After the case was dismissed in summary judgment, Dr. Japra and his cohorts with prejudice and discrimination took over the Board of Trustees and Management Board of FHT. This took over is result of political power, money power, buddy power, and favoritism from public officials. This complete taken over of FHT management by FIA, shall cause breach of peace because devotees distributed the unsigned letters in the FHT premises, was objected by Dr. Dhir since the year 2005, which was hampered by Dr. Japra, Dr. Pawan Chadha, Yogi Chug, Mrs. Lila Mathur, Veeru Vuppala, Amarjit Singh Bhatia, Tikka, Ashwani, Sharma, Dr. Dharmanand, Nidhi Bhatnagar, Ram Malik, Dr. Naresh Kapoor, and Few members of Fremont Sikh Temple as police complaint is already filed, among others. See, Attachment Exhibit-“F,” is copy of the print out of http://www.sepiamutiny.com/sepia/archives/001685.html.

17. The Complainant prays that the Honorable Members of Human Relations Commission shall implement the above public policy:

a) by studying the above problem of prejudice and discrimination in the FHT devotee community and the above causes of prejudice and discrimination since the year 1984 in the City of Fremont.

b) To work with other agencies, the judges and police, in developing programs to eliminate prejudice and discrimination.

c). To initiate and encourage educational and other appropriate activities which tend to promote inter-group harmony, progress, and integration between FHT 30000 devotee members.

d). To advise and submit the reports to the city council on all problems of local inter-group relations of 30000 FHT devotees.

e) To locate and anticipate potential areas of friction due to inter-group discrimination which might erupt into a breach of peace and to consult and advise with the groups (FIA and FHT common members and directors) and public officials (the Judge Brick and police official) primarily involved.

f). By persuasion and conference to seek to arrive at voluntary solutions designed to discourage and prevent FIA and FHT inter-group discrimination.

g) To act in an advisory capacity to the city council in all matters relating to human services in the city of Fremont.

h). Through voluntary means to encourage coordination of all human services, public and private, and to foster communication among the providers of human services to the residents of the city of Fremont.

i). To work with other private and public agencies to ensure that adequate human services are being provided, and to strive to improve the quality of service.
