Aung Kin from London :

Idolatry literally means the worship of an "idol", also known as a cult image, in the form of a physical image, such as a statue or icon. In Christianity, Islam and Judaism, idolatry connotes the worship of something or someone other than God. In these religions, idolatry is forbidden. In many Indian religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, idols are considered as icons of spiritual ideas, or the embodiment of the divine. They are a means to focus one's religious pursuits and worship. In the traditional religions, the reverence statue has been a common practice, and cult images have carried different meanings and significance(wiki). That’s why Aung San statue is not acceptable to many people.
