    I went to the Holi festival a few years ago, but I was disappointed to see how many of my Mormon peers, while sporting BYU shirts, were disrespectful towards the Hindu temple/religion. There were signs all over asking people to treat the temple itself and the statues of the Hindu gods at the bottom of the stairs with respect as they are considered sacred, and it seemed half the people in BYU attire were casually climbing on top of the statues of the gods for photos or were smearing the colored chalk on the walls of the white temple.
