Should govt be controlling temples to control fraud?

First, fraud in a few temples does not make a case for take over all temples across the country by the government.

Second, and most importantly, no other religious community in India (barring the Jains who are by legal definition Hindu, and suffer the same with Jain temples) have to bear the brunt of such Acts to control their religious institutions.

Shall we assume that the state governments in India believe Hindus have poorer & lower standards of ethics and values than Indians of other religious denominations? Or is it that in a ‘secular’ India religious minorities are untouchable while Hindu institutions (and the donation money they attract) are considered easier to be meddled with?
