  1. Anti Idol worshipper Hindu

    I think temples are sight seeing only, why should a person declares that he has faith on stone god.

  2. Rajpurohit

    Why you use a name like “Anti Idol worshipper Hindu” while you are not an Hindu and you are against Hinduism.
    Use your name.
    Don’t try to be oversmart.
    faith on Stone
    no hindu has faith on stone.
    they have faith on God and use God’s PRATIMA to pray.
