  1. Yeshwanth Pai

    It is disgusting to see the list of prayer places and mandirs destroyed, pillaged as if we were living during the time of Aurangzeb. All this happened between 1986 & 1996. Why hasn’t our print media which would have gone bezerk had even a mosque was touched, not reported such incidents om day today basis. What was the party jn power ruling India, the corrupted Congress doing those days with the shameless PM-Mouni singh & co photoshopping with Yasin Mallik- the dreaded terrorist of those days who killed thousands of Hindus in Kashmir without any remorse? It s high time the BJP restored all these temples with gusto. One wonders, what yhese Moslems have against idol worship, so long as we dont have Mohammed as an idol?

  2. Dave

    Imran can write this kind of lies as n intellectual is worrisome for freedom loving world. Cerst he is an extremist intellectual and perhaps a paid journalist as well.

  3. Pingback: Kashmiri Hindus demand restoration of temples that were destroyed by Islamists - Marmikh News

  4. S V Sastry.

    Horrible,wether we r in India or else where.The only solution is Hindu Unity, Hindus have to come out. No cast groups in Hinduism,all the Hindus are one

  5. Ravindra Badonia

    It is the responsibility of Govt of India as well as we citizens of this country to re-build our lost holy temples and world

  6. Ravi

    Leave aside Congress – they thought they bought the country from the British and they own it and are are free to sell it!
    But what were the following doing then?!
    1. Human Rights activists
    2. UN Security Council – how many resolutions passed?
    3. Secular English press in India
    4. Western media
    5. Secular Bollywood owned by Bombay underworld
    etc etc.,

  7. Sanjiv Patel

    Hindus must be united, must not be self centered, must think about others and act, not wait for others to act.

  8. Tej Raina

    There isno mention of Shailaputri temple of Baramulla which was restored to present and original position by Indian Army after arson and removal of idol of presiding deity .

  9. Vinod

    Current government must allocate funds to rebuild all the 93 temples ransacked.. 2020-2021 budget time now

  11. Bhagvant

    In the name of secularism ..
    They will never leave in peace .. .. ..
    Whatever they believe will always show them red .. .. .. just blood red

  12. rajpatimishra

    The sad story of Kashmir is cultivation of Jihadis on our soil systematically by the state specially sponsered and paid by Pakis . The centre govt is equally responsible to give doles to the local admin and pisful abdullas on some way or other.

    These bastards ensured removal of the Pandits from valley , breaked our temples, raped and killed our mother and sisters including our brothers. This ghost will always be behind them in days to come.

    Modi govt must ensure their return, remove 370 and 35 A immediately. The UCC is the one step further solution to this filthy mindset including Population control measures at BharatVarsha.

  13. Shenoy Devram

    Why not insist for Restoration & Rebuild@ Local Govt cost as it was the duty of the local govt to protect all these temples, Book bloody Abdullas & Seperstists who did this very systematically.
    World level it will send a clear message that the terrorist activity is Accountable afterall these are 1000s if year old our Culture & Ethics, should it go in dust

  14. Ravikumar B N

    No body will tolerate such adocity, to demolish such brutal activities only the whole country is supporting Narendra Modi. One nation one law and nobody is above the law, this is what India wants now.

  15. Ashok Sopori

    Even after destroying so many temples and forcing all Hindus to flee from the valley,the Muslims there are Secular.
