Hindus ask world museums, galleries to return stolen Hindu artifacts to temples

Hindus have asked the major international art institutions to re-examine the procurement of their Hindu art acquisitions and return these to Hindu temples where these belonged in case these were proved to be stolen.

Acclaimed Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that devotees had been worshiping these images of Hindu deities for centuries and the world should respect their feelings by returning these to their original homes before these were stolen for mercantile greed.
