Hinduism in Saudi Arabia

Saudi religious police have destroyed a clandestine makeshift Hindu temple in an old district of Riyadh and deported three worshippers found there, a newspaper reported today (March 26, 2005).

“They were surprised to find that one room had been converted into a Hindu temple,” it said.

A caretaker who was found in the worshipping area ignored the religious police orders to stop performing his religious rituals, the paper added.

He was deported along with two other men who arrived on the scene to worship. [Makeshift Hindu temple razed; worshippers deported]

Answer: They do. But who said that they have to provide freedom to minorities in Saudi Arabia. Be happy those guys came back with all their body parts intact.

Question: Shouldn’t India raise this issue with Saudi authorities ?
Answer: It might offend them. Also it might put a haddi in our secular kabab.

Question: Narendra Modi was denied a US visa because he was accused of persecuting minorities, so by the same game, shouldn’t all Saudi Royals be denied American visa from now ?

    BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — A large earthquake struck off Indonesia’s Sumatra Island in the Andaman Sea late Monday, and the U.S. Geological Survey said it was a major quake measuring a magnitude of 8.2.

    Thai officials issued a warning of a possible tsunami, three months after a tsunami devastated parts of Indonesia and other countries in the region. The quake occurred at 11:09 p.m. local time at a depth of nearly 19 miles, the USGS in Golden, Colo., said.

  2. “Rights are the key to relations”

    America has the cheek to question India’s human rights record, in spite of other glaring examples in the neighborhood. But have they looked in their backyard lately? The State Department which is acting all holier-than-thou has recently released a report

  3. bang on target. A muslim believes that Islam is the only true religion, and thus does not allow for any other religion, and can not coexist with another religion.

    Thoose who do, tend to follow a lot less of quran. Islam preaches jihad ( struggle), as much as “mien kampf” does preach for struggle. Islam translates to “submission” to Allaha, and to not have a free mind.
