Question: if you saw someone suggest erecting a statue of, say, Jesus Christ, would you demand that they hightail it back to Judea?
Answer: Apples and Oranges.
If Buddhists want to erect a statue of Buddha, fine. If Catholics want to erect a statute of Pope Pious VII, fine. Khan was not Jesus Christ and personally it ticks me off a bit that you made that comparisn.
Christ is a religious figure; Khan is a national one, specifically Mongolia, not the US.
