Decades-old Radha-Krishna’s temple demolition video sparks controversy in MP

Sahdol(Madhya Pradesh): Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh on Sunday condemned the demolition of an ”ancient” Hindu temple at Budhar in Sahdol district and said the BJP government should have consulted the local residents before taking such an action, ”which has hurt the religious sentiments of the people”.

He also raised the gravity of action taken by the administration. In his tweet, Singh questioned the administration for not acquiring the temple instead of shattering the temple into pieces. 

Now the demolition has sparked off a controversy with video clips doing rounds on social media claiming the demolished structure was Radha-Krishna temple. 

Devotees have claimed that the temple was about 6 decades old and was constructed by Dadan Singh who was a government employee in Budhar Police station. 

The decades-old temple, allegedly built on government land, was visited by devotees from nearby areas for regular worship. On Saturday, suddenly Shahdol ASP Mukesh Vaish, Additional Collector Arpit Verma, SDM, and other police officers reached there and demolished the temple. 

However, the police said all structures identified as encroachments built over government land were being demolished.
