Vannakkam: If this story http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2012-07-27/india/32887872_1_subhash-chandra-kapoor-indian-antique-dealer-antique-idols is any indicator, the value of stuff in British private collections form the heyday of thievery musty be immense. I hope somehow it can all be returned to the rightful temples.

Very true; I cannot help but think of the return of many Egyptian antiquities
to their land of origin. If Egypt has a right to the artifacts of a cultural
and religious heritage that is long since gone, is it not more shameful to
prevent the return of treasures belonging to a culture and religion very much alive?
This aside, I did chuckle at the comment "America badly needs our gods" ;)
