    The Hindu : States / Tamil Nadu : NHAI spares 1,300-year-old temple

    [​IMG]

    The Siva temple at Panaiyapuram in Tamil Nadu was to be demolished to make way for widening the Vikkiravandi-Thanjavur highway.


    Utterly shameful that they even planned to demolish a 1300 year old temple ! Hats off to the villagers who fought to save their heritage, OUR HERITAGE.

    I believe Subramayam Swamy approached the court to prevent the demolition.

    Swamy and villagers are the reason the Temple was spared, the thing is how can they even think of destroying such a Temple, think of what would happen if they try to demolish some Mosque.

    NHAI did not honor the sentiments, but was afraid of violence.

    Shame that such an ancient place of worship was sought to be demolished by the govt. How can anyone in their right senses even think like this.

    Amazing statement. Is this true in all cases, or only if the person/organization/thing being feared is "Hindu"?

    If it's the former, I want to quote this.

    It probably had stuff added to it later on, or was rebuilt/renovated at some point.

    But yeah, it doesn't look that old.

    Its always "us" vs "them", so long us, they view "us" in the same way :namaste:

    And fear gets the job done. No one dares to call a Muslims parties as "terrorists", but they call RSS/BJP as terrorists. Effect of fear. There is nothing wrong in Tit for Tat

    Who is the "Us vs. Them"? Hindus vs. NHAI? :confused:

    Muslims and BJP/RSS are not mentioned anywhere here. I asked a question regarding the statement "fear is always better than respect". Is this true in all cases, or only if the ones being feared are Hindus? Do you want an India where citizens live in fear of each other?

    I want an India, where no one fears another- or every one fears every one:D:yoda:

    Anyway, I want equal treatment of everything regardless of Identity. But, outside that lala-land nonsense and coming back to real world, when the govt can change the airport location for a shitty local mosque out of fear of muslim backlash, then there is nothing wrong in changing the course of a simple Highway out of fear of Hindu backlash:thumb:
