Q:

Is it allowed for a muslim ruler to built a temple for its hindu community in islam ?

A:

Salaamun alaykum

Question: A Muslim builder or contractor is approached for building a place of worship for non-Muslims in a non-Muslim country. Is it permissible for him to accept that job?
Answer: It is not permissible because it involves promoting the false religions.

So anything that helps to promote the false religions is not permissible.
