  1. What a paradox ….While crore spent in building statues with public money on public property…. and destroying a small prayer centre. This is a tragedy of crowd mentality and ignorance of self consciousness.

  2. Atleast 120 temples were vandalized in AP more than 30 temples in TN were demolished but only one church was demolished and so much hue and cry

  3. It is showing disregard for the law which is the kicker. The decision of the court is binding on what their judgement would be.

  4. Demolition of any religious place of worship is a sacrilege. In this situation it’s pure disregard for the law of the land.
