A tale of two fires?
While the whole world bleats over #NotreDame fire, even Hindus are utterly unaware that 2018 saw fires in SEVEN Hindu temples of Tamil Nadu within a short span of time - including Meenakshi Temple.

No investigations were made, no reports.

What's worse, Hindu rituals happening for more than a millennium were blamed for the fires without any investigation!

No Hindus stepped forward to salvage the damage by offering to rebuild the temples or property destroyed.

This is not a story buried in history. It's just one year old, yet it's completely unknown to everyone!

This is the #CulturalGenocide waged on Hindus while they pledge support over "international calamities" like Notre Dame.

So a couple of months ago I told yall about a project thats threatening a forest on my ancestral homelands here in southern Maryland. I just want to give yall an update on whats going on and ask that you help me. PLEASE!
I first want to just begin by saying that I am a member of the Cedarville band of Piscataway. For those who do not know, the Piscataway are the indigenous peoples to the land currently known as Maryland and Washington, D.C. (Most of us reside in southern Maryland.)
Southern Maryland is still (for now) one of the counties in Md that haven’t been bulldozed to death by developers who want to build neighborhoods, shopping centers, multimillion dollar homes. (However, it’s developing fast).
