Just when the racial attacks on Indians in the US are on the rise, a major pipeline has been diverted to save a temple in West Virginia.
Rover Pipeline, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners, has decided to reroute the pipeline near Moundsville, West Virginia to save the New Vrindavan Holy Dham. Energy Transfer Partners has been receiving criticism worldwide due to its Dakota Pipeline project in North Dakota.
This decision to save Lord Krishna’s temple in West Virginia is being highly appreciated by the American Hindu Committee. Rajan Zed, President of the Universal Society of Hinduism, thanked Rover Pipeline for giving due regard to the feelings of the Hindus for the temple complex and maintaining the sanctity of the place. Zed has also urged all businesses to work towards respecting and accommodating all religious sentiments.
The $4.2 million Rover Pipeline is a 713-mile natural gas pipeline transporting gas to the markets in the US and Canada.
