As a testimony for apathy of secular #India towards Sanatana Dharma & neglect of temples under Govt, in May 2010, 500 years old & 136ft tall Rajagopuram of Srikalahasti temple in #AndhraPradesh got collapsed.
Never forget, never forgive!(1)

This majestic temple tower built by Vijayanagara King Sri Krishnadevaraya stood high to welcome the devotees of Mahadeva. It was a testimony for architectural skills of medieval Hindus. Any country except anti Hindu secular #India would have preserved it at any cost.(2)
As the cracks developed, warnings & requests from Hindus to preserve it, even many months ahead of its collapse, went into deaf secular ears. As the TRP frenzy media telecasted its death live, dhimmi Hindus watched it like some hollywood movie.(3)

Hindus should brace themselves for a referendum in year 2024, people of India should be allowed to choose between Present Constitution and the new Constitution for Bharatvarsha.

#ReclaimTemples , #Gharwapsi should be an integral part of the new.
The present Constitution of Bharat was never accepted by the people of Bharat via a referendum. Many of its provisions are based on Govt of India Act 1935 passed by the British.

A reason why the rich, mighty and minorities gets benefits denied to Hindus and ordinary citizens.
Indian Constitution based on Victorian moralities and legalities has failed to protect Hindu Dharma and it's age old traditions. It has relegated Hindus as second class citizens.

Lets adopt a Constitution based on Hindu Dharmik traditions via a referendum in 2024.

histories by medieval Muslim historians,

Chapter, ‘Hindustan ki Masjiden’ in
Maulana Hakim Sayid Abdul Hai’s,

1-Maulana Abdul Hai in the chapter, Hindustan ki Masjiden,describes each principal masjid in few lines;

“Qutub-Din Aibak, after demolishing Temple built by Prithviraj, leaving certain parts, built Quwwat al-Islam in 587”,👇🏻
2- In 592,Aibak returned & under Shihabud-Din Ghori’s orders, started building a huge masjid of red stone including certain parts of the Temple.

When Shamsud-Din Altamish became the king, he built edifices of white stone on both its sides & on one side, the lofty towers..

Islamization of this Hindu civilization happened after 15th century as their mother civilization India itself was under foreign rule. Mỹ Sơn temple complex got ruined extensively due to carpet bombing by USA during Vietnam war (1969).
Some Champas (estimated at 50000) are still practising Hinduism. They, along with Balinese Hindus are the only surviving non-indic Hindu societies today.
