In this Sangam Talk, Shri Prafull Goradia talks about his book “Hindu Masjids”. He brings out gory details of how Mandirs were destroyed by Islamic rulers and Masjids built in their place. And in the process, the idols were destroyed and desecrated, and masjids built over the ruins of the mandirs. He mentions, in his talk, the barbaric plunders of Mahmud of Ghazni and Muhammad Ghori. These Islamic rulers destroyed the temples to loot the temple wealth and with an aim to establish and spread Islam in India.
Shri Prafull Gordia speaks about how restoration of these temples should be of concern and treated as national issues instead of treating them as religious issues. He maintains that very little work has been done by the Archaeological Survey of India.
