What a foolish statement is given by UPA Govt in Supreme Court !!! How can Govt attack on feelings and emotions of millions and millions of Hindus ? Ram Setu has sentimental, religious and historic value. This setu was build by Ram and his vanar sena . The significance of Ram setu is explained in details in Skanda Purana, Vishnu Purana, Agni Purana, and Brahma Purana The setu is around 17500 years old which is also recognized by NASA . Nasa also says that it is human made structure.
Setu samundram project is just to make path between Palk Gulf and Gulf Mennar , which lessen the 400 nautical miles and save 21 crore rupees per year . Is this is the more money which we give to our MPs (25 crore) to vote in Parliament. The depth of canal shall be only 12 mtr ,so Large sized vessels and carriers shall not be able to pass. The equipment which is using to dig the canal named “Jai Hanuman”. Is this iis not the direct attack to our feelings. There are many alternate path to reduce the journey and fuel .i.e. by removing the barren sand heaps near village Mandapam between Rameshwaram and Dhanushkoti railway..
Ram Setu is the natural barrier for Tsunami. During the last tsunami, the Ramar Bridge (at a high elevation) from the rest of the shoal accumulations acted as a natural barrier preventing the direct devastation of the entire Bharatam coastline south and southwest of Nagapattanam. This is the Ram setu which prevent us from Tsunami.
Why Govt always play with Hindu’s Emotions ??
Why was route of Metro passing ‘close’ Qutub Minar in New Delhi was abandoned and later reworked fearing prospective damages to this 815 years man made monument?
Why the project of Taj corridor (which would have made lot of dollars to our money minded govt) was put off after the hue and cry of environmentalists as the construction near Taj ‘may’ cause bad effect on this 359 years old man made monument??
