You think that if you tried to pull a stunt like that in St Peters and Pauls in the Vatican or the Notre Dame (given the tourists were French) in Paris that you would not invoke a similar reaction? What if they tried to pull the same stunt at the Lincoln memorial? With the Trafalgar square statue of Eros?
It may just be a statue, but disrespect is disrespect. The same thing happened here in Greece when a bunch of drunk English lads photographed themselves showing their butts at an ancient Greek archaeological site.
Religious or secular, you can't just crap all over peoples culture.
This looks more like the statue of Nigrantha or Mahavira, the standard feature of body nudity and the srivatsa (swastika) on the chest?
