Desecration of a Hindu temple complex in Kashmir condemned
Pleasanton, CA, USA April 05, 2012
Kashmir Hindu Foundation, Inc., USA in a press release expressed distress over media reports that a sacred Hindu temple 'Shri Vaital Bairav Astapan' at Motiyaar in Rainawari, Srinagar-Kashmir has been completely desecrated, including the sanctorum and the sacred old Mulberry Tree. This has sent a wave of strong resentment among the Kashmir Hindu devotees who have held this Asthapan in reverence for years.

KHF strongly demanded that Immediate steps be taken to restore the sanctity of the temple. Religious sentiments of the Kashmiri Hindu community have been deeply hurt by this cowardly act. We support protests launched by various social and political Kashmiri Hindu organizations in Jammu.

The State Government has failed to provide safety and security to religious shrines of Hindus in Kashmir and it is their duty to fulfill its moral obligations towards the minority community in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The Divisional commissioner of Kashmir who is the custodian of all Kashmiri Hindu Migrants left out properties should restore the sanctity of this 350 year old shrine. The culprits responsible for this sacrilege need to be prosecuted to avoid such occurrences in future
