Developer in Nanjing Stripped Nuns

Two nuns who lived in a Buddhism temple were stripped and thrown out of the Five Goddess (Wu Xian) Temple in the Jiangning District around 12:20 am April 28th, 2007 by a Nanjing real estate developer. Scriptures and statues were destroyed and the nuns were stripped and mocked. The developer demanded the temple for commercial development, but the two nuns did not agree. No one has been charged for the incident.

No place is safe in China from brutality of commercial developers, not even a temple.
