maybe intent is the important consideration
in a completely just/fair/equitable/non bigotted/nice world it would be that every individual was aware of and respectful to and for every other individual and group
alas, in the real world, it is not possible to be aware of every nuance of belief and cultural significance
any group or individual may well have a justifiable and long standing 'claim' to a place or thing, but should that stop another group or individual developing a claim or attachment to the same place or thing

excellent question
