Hindus have expressed concern at the continuing deterioration of temple murals/inscriptions/carvings in Tamil Nadu and adjoining areas.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that both India and Tamil Nadu governments should urgently come up with a joint project to preserve these priceless masterpieces of religious art for coming generations.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that these pieces of religious art, some dating back to 7th century CE in the Pallava period, were parts of our rich heritage, provide valuable insights into our past, and should be passed on to our children and grand-children intact.
Exposure to sun, vulnerability to nature, water-seepage, fungus, vandalism, smoke, and plain ignorance and carelessness, etc., had caused havoc to these valuable and important symbols of our religion/culture. It was the moral duty of state and national governments to immediate take steps to prevent further damage to our rich heritage, Rajan Zed stressed.
Hinduism is oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal.
