Government land used to erect temple opposit to Catholic church in the riot affected Kandhamal

Phulbani-( Br. Markose)
I was at Phulbani on 23rd Nov. It was a surprise for me to note that a small temple has been built on govt land opposite to Catholic Church at Phulbani. The temple has been built during past two month's time. because during my last visit to Phulbani, there was no temple. How could a temple be built on govt land in a town which is headquarters of the district? Is it possible without support of district administration? A temple built on govt land opposite to church is surely with malafide intentions.

Orissa pogroms: India's justice system is "criminal", Christian leader says
by Nirmala Carvalho
A court in Phulbani sentenced seven innocent Christians to life in prison, whilst acquitting yesterday five people up on arson charges. In both cases, there was no evidence against the defendants. For Sajan George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians, the Orissa pogroms are "sadly unique, for their violence and their total lack of justice."
