    :hmm: The titles are poles apart. Two different ways of putting the same information? Not quite!!
    Greater Kashmir article emphasizes half a dozen times that encroachment on temple land is not true. Rediff article says that but also emphasizes that many temples have suffered damage.
    Greater Kashmir article said nothing about damage to temples. It simply gloats over by quoting that 2 temples were being reconstructed
    Just wondering, would Rahul Gandhi visit a temple in Kashmir trip? I know their kind is fond of visiting mazaars/graves (Babar) and dargaahs across the sub continent.
