Deploy the eminent historians

Chindu calls in the big guns called the "eminent historians" to denounce the Hindu faith. Let us pose the same question to the muslims. Is Islamic faith so fragile that it requires the support of a Babri structure? Or for that matter, if faith is beyond structures, is Romila Thapar advocating that Mecca and Madina may be demolished because it will not have any impact on Islam?

The Hindu : Opinion / Leader Page Articles : Where fusion cannot work — faith and history
To say that the partial removal of an underwater formation in the Palk Straits is going to hurt the faith of millions is not giving faith its due. Is faith so fragile that it requires the support of an underwater geological formation believed to have been constructed by a deity?

"Only experts should decide on Ramar Sethu," says Jaggi Vasudev

Only experts in ecology, heritage and economic aspects should decide what should happen there,” said Jaggi Vasudev, founder of the Isha Foundation, about the Ramar Sethu issue.
