An angry Islamist mob has attacked and razed down a Hindu temple in the Karak district of Pakistan’s Kyber-Pakhtunkhwa province on Monday. According to sources, a Muslim cleric from Karak instigated Muslims against the Hindu community and demolished the temple. In a video that went viral from the locality, demolition of the temple can be seen clearly.
About the incident, Human Rights activist Ihtesham Afghan tweeted “A Hindu temple was demolished by religious extremists in Karak today. It is a very shameful moment for us because it reflects the way of how we treat minorities in our country. You can't run a federation unless and until the rights of minorities are protected. Strongly
Lal Chand Malhi, a member of the National Assembly from Imran Khan’s PTI, called the demolition “an unfortunate incident”. After speaking to the police personals, he said, “The police officials have assured me that they will arrest the perpetrators as soon as possible”. But, will now no one is arrested in connection with the incident.
Incidents like this show the poor condition of Hindus and other minorities in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
