"Who burns another's flag, burns his own history." Old walnut of Haghartsin was burned (photos)
Today pictures have appear on the Internet, where there is the image of well- known old walnut in the territory of Haghartsin Church... It was burned, the pictures were shock not only for me, as a resident of Dijijan, but for also all those who at least once have stood near the huge tree's blower and have taken a picture.
A question arises, who and why, who just decided to burn that tree in Dilijan, Haghartsin, which is a part of Armenian history, the symbol of the church, around which myths are created every year with a new content.
But who lets to burn the tree, whether in Dilijan, in such a humid place, such a huge Armenian tree could burn so fast that no one noticed. Where were the guards, guarding the church, the peasants, who should take care of Haghartsin, whether they should not preserve it, whether I'm not responsible for each tree in my backyard ...
Whether there is not a single, rich Armenian oligarch or Christian, who has no money, whether there was need to repair the old church in European style.
Shame on all those, who are responsible for burning the walnut, who left it burning, and shame on those who in the place of burnt walnut the day after tomorrow will build something new.
Pictures from Ara Haytayan's Facebook page, where the latter interpreted the pictures in the following way: "Haghartsin's fabulous old walnut was burned, ruined and destroyed ...", "... and in fact who burns another's flag, burns his own history."
The Holy See is silent.
The Ministry of Culture is silent.
Law enforcement officers are silent.
We are silent."
