A temple named to honour India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to be renamed. Supporters of India's leader hoped to open the temple on Sunday. They have abandoned the idea because Modi is horrified by the idea of a temple in his name. His supporters have already unveiled a statue of him sitting under the symbol of his political party. Modi said it was "against India's great traditions" and that, "building such temples is not what our culture teaches us".

People do not know what to do with the temple and statue. Some want to replace the statue with a Hindu god. Others think the statue should stay to honour Mr Modi. The man who donated the land for the temple said: "We love Modi and worship him because he is the finest leader we have ever had." Another supporter believes Modi is an incarnation of God, as he changed things for the better. Modi said people should instead work towards a cleaner India.
