Hindus angry at 100ft Jesus statue in India

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Hundreds of hardline Hindus affiliated to India's ruling party have rallied to protest against planned Jesus statue that will rival Rio de Janeiro's Christ The Redeemer for size.

"The protests in the southern state of Karnataka's Ramanagara district on Monday were led by far-right Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), with its members clutching saffron flags as around 1,000 police stood by."

After reading your post, the first thing that comes to mind is Adam's Peak, Sri Lanka.

I don't think Muslims are supposed to make graven images of humans.  KInda like the Christians worshiping an idol I think.

Yep, but it's just that the mood in India is quite heavy on Muslims lately... sad that religions are mostly based on doing good things and bring so much problems...
