@simran_negi yes indeed, pollution

@simran_negi Yesterday

@heidi.de.rooij haha not really, the idols are made of mud now, nm good to know you care about our gods and our river ganga ☺️

@heidi.de.rooij Yesterday

@simran_negi i lived in india for 6 months and i saw it happen and they are not only made of mud. i won’t tell what stuff i saw happening you ppl do in the ganges but it’s terrible. don’t lie to ppl. i don’t care about your “gods” bcs i don’t believe in god. it is nature and global warming what i care about!!!

@leandra._.furtado i do not disrespect them. i am one who believes that god created all of us. and he made a way for us to be saved from our sins - only through jesus. i do love all people irrespective of their faith. i don't take them for granted.

@billy.fulu doesn't give you the right to disrespect them for you and for me and for all the christians here jesus is the only god we have faith in. it's not the same for the others they find peace in what they believe if you respect a person you should respect what they believe in
