    these are peoples who are born as a human being but they are not counted as one…..being a buddhist country we should preserve these treasures which were in our country for generations but sadly it is being stolen by peoples who dont have respect and who are not fit to be in our country…if caught ,tthese peoples shud be punished severly n cancel der own identification and chased out frm bhutan…..

    It is disheartening to read such news. Be it a national or a non-national who are involved in vandalism of these three precious chorten must not go unpunished. I think people involved in such heinous crime deserve death sentence straight away so that it does not occur again. A lesson should be taught to all those who are involved in such dreadful crimes. Of course Bhutan being a buddhist country is not allowed to do harm to other living sentiments. However, if that living sentiment is harmful, dangerous and naughty to the society, then these living sentiments does not deserve any sympathy and kindness.

    It is sad news to hear these things happening in our country. Although i m in abroad i am very much concern about these cases.i think is very inhuman act and they must be imprisoned for life time. If it still continuous then how many more chortens will be left.please preserve those monuments.
