Bajrang Sena activists approached the Chhatarpur police on Tuesday, seeking a ban on the sale of Kamasutra books and obscene figurines inside the premises of the Khajuraho temple, Hindustan Times reported. The temple, which is located in Madhya Pradesh and has been declared a Unesco world heritage site, is ironically famous for the erotic sculptures on its walls.

Members of the right-wing group reportedly submitted a memorandum to the sub-divisional officer of police, Khajuraho, Israr Mansouri, claiming that the sale of such items is against India’s culture and tradition. The items were being sold at the western complex of the Khajuraho group of temples, they said.

“Such things are readily available inside the temple premises under the very nose of ASI and tourism department officials. Such things affect the image of Indian culture and traditions in the eyes of the foreigners,” Jyoti Agarwal, the group’s Khajuraho unit president, told HT.

Sena activists are also demanding action against the sellers. “We will consult officials of Archeological Survey of India and tourism department after which further action will be taken,” Mansouri said. “Whatever has been depicted can’t be allowed to happen here now. What sort of moral values are we passing on to our younger generation? These temples have religious significance. There is a Shiva temple here. How can you allow Kamasutra to be sold in the sacred premises,” she added.

          Details about the bizarre activities at the Christian church Branch Davidian camp have since emerged in memoirs and accounts from former Christian cult members who have described it shocking detail, The New Yorker reported. Jesus born again as Koresh literally saw himself as the son of God and lured in disaffected Christian church Seventh-Day Adventists to his bizarre regime in which he preached for 15 hours a day and forced them to get up at 5.30am for boot camp like drills with no water.

                David Koresh was the American Christian leader of the Christian Branch Davidians Church, believing himself to be its final prophet came back as Jesus The child abuse and secxsual abuse claims have been widely circulated in the press coverage. Koresh's (Jesus) doctrine of the House of David did lead to "marriages" with both Christian married and single women in the group and with at least one underage girl. The underage girl was Michelle Jones, the younger sister of Koresh's legal wife Rachel and the daughter of lifelong Branch Davidians Perry and Mary Belle Jones. Koresh (Jesus) had secsx with Michelle when she was thirteen, evidently with the consent of the Joneses. This means Koresh (Jesus) was in violation of state law and could have been prosecuted for statutory rape in Texas.

                  This is what happens in Christian church. Jesus Will Kill Children "Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works." (Revelation 2:22-23) Comment If anyone thinks Jesus represents only a peaceful loving soul, then think again. For an act of adultery, Jesus would kill innocent children for the adultery of others hardly fair justice, love, or the concern for human beings. Some apologists claim that "children" refers to the followers of a cult of Jezebel and not to children birthed from Jezebel. However, if this proved the case, the situation would appear even more horrific, for a cult of believers could number in the dozens, hundreds, thousands, or more. The deaths of these mul ude of cult believers.
