Islamabad: The ruling parties have started opposing the temple being built in Pakistan's capital Islamabad. Pakistan Muslim League Qaid, which is sharing power with PM Imran Khan, has said that the construction of the temple is against the spirit of Islam. PML-Q has said that Imran Khan's party Tehreek-e-Insaf has asked that the construction of the temple be stopped immediately.
PM Imran Khan has sanctioned an amount of 10 crores for the construction of this temple. The foundation for the construction of this temple was laid last week. Punjab Assembly Speaker and PML-Q Chaudhary Parvez Elahi have said that Pakistan was formed in the name of Islam. The construction of the temple in its capital is not only against the spirit of Islam but also against the concept of a welfare Islamic state.
However, Punjab Information Minister and PTI leader Fayyjul Hasan Chauhan said that the construction of the temple will continue even after some leaders have protested. Fayyjul Hasan Chauhan said that the land for the temple was allotted by the PML (N) government in 2016 and this is the project of PML N. The population of Hindus in Islamabad is 3 thousand. It includes government and private sector employees, business community people and a large number of doctors. The Hindu Panchayat of Islamabad will take care of this Shri Krishna temple.
