Saudi Arabia police razes makeshift Hindu temple

Publication: Daily Times
Date: March 27, 2005

Saudi religious police have destroyed a clandestine makeshift Hindu temple in an old district of Riyadh and deported three worshippers found there, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, or the religious police, Thursday stumbled across a room converted into a temple while raiding a number of flats suspected of being used to manufacture alcohol and distribute pornographic videos, pan-Arab Al-Hayat said.

“They were surprised to find that one room had been converted into a Hindu temple,” it said.

A caretaker who was found in the worshipping area ignored the religious police orders to stop performing his religious rituals, the paper added. He was deported along with two other men who arrived on the scene to worship.

All forms of non-Muslim worship are banned in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia, which is home to Islam’s holiest shrines.

The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), an advisory panel, last month urged the US government to impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia, as well as Vietnam and Eritrea, for violating religious rights.

Last year, the US State Department for the first time named ally Saudi Arabia, as well as Eritrea and Vietnam, “countries of particular concern” in its annual report on religious freedom. A list previously included China, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea and Sudan.

Saudi police have for the past couple of weeks been conducting a security operation in an old part of Riyadh inhabited by mainly Asian labour on suspicion that the area has turned into a haven for illicit trade of pornographic material and forgery of documents.

    Saudi Arabia doens’t claim to be a secular country has freedom of religion..Holy shit,they say they are the most holiest islamic people,yet they refute Allah’s words “No compulsion in religion”

    Saudi is the only such a insane country..Every other middle east country and even the most populous muslism country,indonesia have churches and temples..Saudi is in dark ages where they ahve a messsed up culture plus islamic rules..Can you belive they don’t let women drive cars,in the name of preserving

    Wahtever,I just dislike Saudi for infinite reasons.They have distorted islam..Allah says in Quran,to respect others religions and faiths and not to compel anybodyu to belive in what we feel right..Allah says,”Live and let live” ..See proofs from Quran…

    [31:18-19] “You shall not treat the people with arrogance, nor shall you roam the earth proudly. GOD does not like the arrogant showoffs. “Walk humbly and lower your voice – the ugliest voice is the donkey’s voice.”

    [4:148] GOD does not like the utterance of bad language, unless one is treated with gross injustice. GOD is Hearer, Knower.

    [49:11] O you who believe, no people shall ridicule other people, for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women ridicule other women, for they may be better than they. Nor shall you mock one another, or make fun of your names. Evil indeed is the reversion to wickedness after attaining faith. Anyone who does not repent after this, these are the transgressors.

    [41:34] Not equal is the good response and the bad response. You shall resort to the nicest possible response. Thus, the one who used to be your enemy, may become your best friend.

    Saudi is the last choice of living,if i had a chance..Its high time they learn from majority muslims..
