Muslim Congress leaders and President of Croatia oppose Setu Channel through Rama Setu

via Subramaniam Swamy published on March 16, 2008

Ship Channel Project (SSCP) has suffered a furthere blow with Muslim
MPs of the Congress Party expressing reservations about the wisdom of a
project that cuts a channel through Rama Setu. Leaders of the party
such as Ahmed Patel and Mohsina Kidwai have told their top party
leaders that breaking the Rama Setu would ’empower the Hindutva
brigade’ in the future to go on a rampage and justify a future
demolition of mosques in the name of economic development. Hence, they
have urged that the project be dropped altogether rather than court any
controversy. In Kashmir, the Hurriyat Chief Mirwaiz Omar has also
condemned the proposal under the SSCP to demolish the Setu.

The Text of the letter of Croatian President Stjepan Mesic send to

“His Holiness paramhans Swami Swami Maheshwarananda


“Your Holiness honored Swamiji,


Thank you for the book of the holy epic poem Ramayan which you gave to me during our meeting.


attention was especially drawn to the chapter about the bridge between
India and Sri Lanka, the bridge which is hidden in the depths of the
sea. Although invisible in our eyes (But not to NASA satellites)
the bridge is a part of world and human heritage and this is why public
awareness needs to be raised about the significance and establish it on
a global level. The Republic of Croatia is also fighting to protect the
under water heritage because in doing so, we are preserving our roots.
The bridge is a witness of Ramayana. The story about good and evil, a
universal story, but also an individual story, about the struggle of a
hero, an interesting reading material. It makes me think about myself,
about my roles of statesman who could help you with your efforts.


“I therefore support the proposal that Ram setu should be protected from devastation and put on the UNESCO world heritage list”


will use this opportunity to thank you once again for vising Zagreh and
for the seminars and devoted efforts to spread peace, tolerance,
understanding and conscience about the preservation of planet Earth,



The President of the Republic of Croatia, Stjepan Mesic”.
