Hindu idols vandalised by unknown miscreants in Odisha

Christian missionaries suspected to be involved in this vandalism

  • This vandalism has occurred in a village in Odisha which is close to the state of Andhra Pradesh. For the last one and half years more than 120 incidents of vandalism in Hindu temples have occurred in Andhra Pradesh. Now it seems like this is spreading to Odisha as well. The Central Government ought to intervene and ensure protection of temples and idols of Hindu Deities.
  • Despite continued desecration of Deities in Hindu temples, Hindus are still quiet ! They neither protest nor oppose! Why would God even save such apathetic Hindus during the calamitous times?
  • When Hindus cannot even protect their temples, how will they ever be able to protect their own houses and the Nation?
