A protest will be held outside the Lieutenant Governor’s residence – A warning from Hindu organisations

Following the incident, Hindu organisations staged protests and burnt effigies of the State’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and the Central Government. These protesters said that over 8 Hindu temples were vandalised in Jammu and Kashmir in the last 2-3 months, but till now the Police have not been able to arrest any of the accused. (Such inefficient Police should be sacked – Editor) This has created an outcry among Hindus. The Central Government should not force us to protest more severely. If such incidents had happened in connection with places of worship of other religions, immediate action would have been taken. If the temple vandals are not arrested, we will protest outside the Lieutenant Governor’s residence, Hindu Organisation warned.

Earlier, Lakshminarayan temple was vandalised on 8th April, Vasuki temple on 5th May and Hanuman temple on 11th July. Even then Hindu organisations had protested. The Police had promised to arrest the accused immediately.

Editorial viewpoints

  • This shows that Jihadi terrorists and fanatics still control Jammu and Kashmir.
  • The Kashmir problem is primarily a religious one, so as long as its roots are not struck and uprooted, that problem will continue to exist.
