Temple attack: Vandalised temple in Punjab province restored, handed over to Hindus

The Pakistan government has completed the restoration work of the Hindu temple poorly damaged by a gang last week in Punjab province and detained about 90 people involved in the attack that drew strong condemnation from India and the minority community leaders in this country.

100s of people, carrying sticks, bricks and stones attacked the temple at Bhong city of Rahim Yar Khan district, some 590 kms from Lahore on August 4, burning parts of it and damaging the idols in protest against the release by a court of an eight-year-old Hindu boy, who was arrested for allegedly urinating in a local seminary.

Meanwhile, Senator Danesh Kumar, a leader of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), has condemned the attack on a Hindu temple in the Bhong area of Rahim Yar Khan and termed the incident as a conspiracy against minorities living in Pakistan. He said it was condemnable that police failed to protect the temple located just 2 km from a police station, Dawn news reported. He said the Hindu community in the area had informed the police about a possible attack, but the police did nothing. Kumar said it was shocking that the political leadership only issued a statement and no practical step was taken to stop such incidents, creating unrest and fear among the minorities living in Pakistan.
