Orissa: fears over new Hindu temple built in front of Catholic church

The new building is on state land. According to the parish priest, the initiative is likely to cause tensions between the two communities, but local officials have so far failed to explain why the allowed the building of such a place of worship. For Christian leader, the state must "be courageous" and stop Hindu fundamentalists.

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.
