    Modi demolished 80 Temples

    GANDHINAGAR: Before you call Narendra Modi Hindutva's poster-boy, take this. Gujarat's capital, Gandhinagar, has razed to the ground 80 temples
    or their encroaching boundaries, since authorities began a drive against illegal encroachment in one month.

    The campaign, which started on October 13, went into top gear on Wednesday when 15 small and medium temples were demolished on two roads. A lesson, perhaps, for twin-city Ahmedabad's civic authorities who have failed to carry out a Gujarat High Court directive against shrines obstructing movement of traffic in the city.

    A team of officials from the Gandhinagar collectorate, police and forest officials participate in the demolition operation. A survey conducted by the Gandhinagar collectorate officials showed 107 temples having illegally come up along the main roads and about 312 in the interior areas of various sectors. All of these will be removed.

    Apparently, the first temple was demolished around Diwali and there was not even a protest as the demolition was carried out in the dead of the night. Six temples around Gh-5 circle and adjoining areas vanished within hours.

    Two days later, VHP organised a protest rally in Gandhinagar, supported by members of Mahagujarat Janata Party, comprising mainly of BJP rebels. The demolition drive can also be seen in the light of the recent arrest of VHP's Ahmedabad general secretary Ashwin Patel on sedition charges for circulating anti-Modi SMSes. ( Watch )

    Gandhinagar collector Sanjeev Kumar says, ``This is part of the ongoing drive in which all encroachments are going to be removed. We will bring down any illegal structure on government land.''

    I wonder if there were some mosques how people would have reacted.

    Re: Modi demolished 80 Temples

    The response would've been obvious, "Don't demolish the places of worship for the minorities".

    Why is that hard to swallow? But then again we're talking Modi the extremist Chief Minister, so it wouldn't be surprising if he did indeed order the demolition of others' places of worship.
