King Vikramaditya

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: You know that............. Kaaba was a Hindu Temple taken over by Muslims

King Vikramaditya was one of the most reknown ruler of the Copper Age(as per Hindu Swastika calendar) and a great worshipper of Shiva. The Sang e aswad stone in Kaaba is without doubt the remnant of a shiv lingam(jyoti lingam) and represents the universal bodiless form of god as a point of light.
In islam also, god is referred to as 'noor' meaning light. So, no need to feel insecured! Btw, 'eid ul fitr' also originates from the sanskrit word 'eed of pitors' having same significance.
