Soon after the event that happened in Mangalore Mahaganapathy temple,here in Bangalore there is a similar incident, planned and executed allegedly by radical elements in Gangaparameshwari temple, Nagawara.Excerpts from this news.

Tension prevailed at Nagawara bus stop for some time on Saturday morning as four idols at Gangaparameshwari temple were found damaged.

The miscreants had allegedly damaged the idols on Friday night and the priest of the temple had registered a complaint with the police. The local leaders, temple trustees and the police pacified the angry mob and assured them that the culprits will be brought to book.

This is something to be dealt very severely and the culprits involved in this incident should be severely punished.

I wonder what would have happened by now, if the same thing had happened in non-hindu places of worship.
