I, live in Guyana, South America. I, am a hindu by birth and the hindus in my country follow the teachings of the Ramayan and the Gita, I, am sure they would sign the petition if the Indian High Commission advertise this cause. Jai Sri Ram.
As a human being we all have to stand together.This is the work of humanity.Please JOIN.
Next is TEJO-Mahalay(Taj-mahal). It is time to stop brandishing it as an Islamic architecture. Its a temple of Lord Shiva(शिव) and not a burial graveyard. Unless we Hindus stop urinating on our own past, nothing is going to change. Either speak up or get pushed like a sheep.
राम सेतु लिया है, तेजो-महालय भी लेंगे. जय महाकाल.
Neon Singh ji, the CONParty has made the Taj into a masjid now .. and has a limited public access on those 'special' days :(
Neon Singh.. well said.. We need to work on getting it back!
important site: Michael Cremo.
Sucheta Singhal i want to slaughter Conmen thru out our nation for a long time now. is there any plan for the same?
Sorry I did not understand you Prranjal ji. Can you plz rewrite.
THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU? Go read your history book. And you are urinating on someone else's past.
Neon Singh, have you ever been to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. From which angle does it look like a temple? Don't re write history. There are other rich heritage sites depicting the Indian architecture which you should promote.
Several years ago I had given public intervirews making this demand. I am glad that the demand is growng globally.
If you have some material from those interviews Dr. Gupt maybe you can post it here.
Yes please, if you have material or information I can add to this petition that would be great!

Declare Ram Setu cultural heritage site; Ram debate needless
New Delhi, Sept 17, 2007 : Sanskrit and Greek scholar and an expert on Hinduism Dr Bharat Gupt has demanded that Ram Setu be declared a cultural heritage site.
''Whether Lord Ram actually existed or not is a needless debate.
The Adam's bridge or Ram Setu is so closely associated with our cultural moorings that it would be worth preserving it,'' Dr Gupt told UNI.
In this country, some people have an irresistible tendency to...
In this country, some people have an irresistible tendency to make a controversy out of everything, and trigger frivolous debates to create dissensions in the society, which would lead the country nowhere, he said.
''And then we take a very limited view of scientific reason. Ram Setu is so much interwoven with the cultural history of Rameswaram and of the country as a whole that bringing the factor of the historicity of Lord Ram was absolutely unnecessary,'' he said.
Dr Gupt said personally he found no contradiction in the scientific explanation of the existence of Ram setu and the Hindu belief about its construction by the army of Lord Ram.
''The setu is a natural formation. Fine. But can't humans add to it. After all what they build is only an addition to what nature has already provided,'' he would reason.
It is sad to see that how in India people do not value their cultural heritage. In marked contrast to that, In the West even small sites like a lane associated with any cultural or historical figure is preserved and taken full advantage of from the point of view of tourism.
''Ram Setu should not be destroyed but be developed into a place of tourist attraction, he stressed.
In Dr Gupt's view there was one more difficulty with the Sethusamudram Project.
Once, the canal was created, it will be considered international waters, which entails many political and strategic implications for the country, he pointed out.
Lashing a DMK chief M Karunanidhi for his stand in the controversy, he said people like him have no knowledge of history and have not read vital texts They themsleves do not know what tradition they belong to, he added.
The controversy arose after the ASI's affidavit in the Supreme Court said that there was no proof of the historicity of Lord Ram.
The controversial affidavit, which has now been withdrawn, was in response to a petition challenging the Sethusamudram project envisaging construction of a ship canal by dredging it with Adam's bridge or Ram Setu.
Under the proposed project, the Palk Bay and the Gulf of Mannar between India and Sri Lanka would be linked by the canal to be created through the shallow sea sometimes called Setu Samudram, and through the island chain of Rama's Bridge.
The canal would provide a continuous navigable sea route around the Indian Peninsula.
I was interviewed by a reporter of the UNI in 2007. It is 5 years later that they are realising this. Bharat Gupt
Vincent, can you please add this article by Dr. Bharat Gupt with the petition.
We also support
I too heartedly support the cause , not only from religeous faith, but from ecological and environmental angles.
Oh RAAM....Pl save your Bridge by giving good sense to those raavans sitting in delhi tamasha center
Hari BOL LORD RAMA IS SUPREME LORD. WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO DISAPPEAR SOMETHING WHICH IS PROOF OF HIS INCONCEIVABLE POTENCIES.
I have recently seen two posts of NASA Space Photos with the analysis that both sites are man planned, made and maintained from 200,000 Years - 2 Lakh Years. The Sites are Ram Setu and submerged Dwarka, the birth place of Krshna. Give or take 1000 years cycles what is the implied age of History it only matches the DNA Mapping now completed. So all religious people take heart that the Hindu heritage is a living philosophy of more than 4,00,000 years.
Yes...This is the tru..
