KABUL, AFGHANISTAN,March 2, 2001: The Taliban's destruction of statues has evoked a strong response in India, with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) threatening suitable "reaction" in communally sensitive Ajmer town of Rajasthan if they do not stop "insulting" Rajput warrior Prithviraj Chauhan's memorial in Ghazni. "The destruction of Bamiyan statues is an insult to Buddhism," VHP senior vice-president Acharya Giriraj Kishore added. Asked what was meant by "reaction," Bajrang Dal leader Surendra Jain said, "you never know how people react."
