3. Spate of attacks on Temples. Are Hindus on a hitlist? Or just a Law & Order problem?
Report: Recently mainstream-media is covering only various “attacks” on Churches, some of which are plain robberies. If such robberies in Churches qualify to be “communal” “attacks”, as per the media, why haven’t they raised the issue of a spate of killings and robberies in Hindu Temples, where sadhu’s have been murdered and idols have been stolen.
