    Not entirely. One is because they don't approve of any idol, and is religious. The other is because they don't approve of the reason behind the (current) veneration of the individual in question, and may or may not be political (and is rarely religious, except to the extent that politics sometimes resembles religion).

    Folks,
    Discussions about removing statues, renaming schools and roads, or similar issues from modern politics are most definitely political discussions, and don't belong on MT. Go to US Message Board if you feel you must discuss that issue. Historical events like the destruction of the Library of Alexandria are fine.
