    Dear Bhandarkar, of late not only the holy places become akhada's (fight ring) but the places like assemblies, even our Parliament is not spared buddy. Issue is not place of worship but superiority complex among our fellow citizens. They want to show their muscular or wealth power whenever get a chance.

    Sad to note that of late 'places of worship' have become places to show one upmanship and to lock horns! Wonder what God thinks of it!

    Any Masjid is a place to pray peacefully to attain eternal peace. But people go there to fight also. If fight erupts for prestige in violent mode is not acceptable to any community. Hope these Committee Members learned a lesson and rectify their wrong doing in future
