Hindu temple in Sindh province of Pakistan vandalised

The series of barbarian acts and atrocities on the minority communities in Pakistan is far from being controlled. The troglodyte majority community of Pakistan has always refused to let other religions and faiths live in peace.

In a fresh event of vandalism, a Hindu temple in Pakistan’s Kotri in Sindh province was attacked ahead of Diwali. The latest attack adds to a series of targeted attacks on minorities in Pakistan. The people behind the incident of vandalism in the Shiva temple have not been identified yet.

Video of the hooligan attack has been procured from the site which clearly shows that the miscreants vandalised the temple and stole valuables including gold chains and a crown from an idol of Lord Ram.

SAD leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, “A Hindu temple in Kotri, Sindh province of Pakistan has been vandalised. Attacks against minorities are a common sight in the region as only the poor live here. The miscreants have destroyed the temple of these people and have posted videos and photos of the same. They have said that this is a Diwali gift for the Hindus of Pakistan. I condemn the act.”

Hindus in Pakistan are often treated as second-class citizens, systematically discriminated and dehumanised.

The list of miscreant acts on the Hindu community in Pakistan is endless.

The Krishna temple in Pakistan was vandalised ahead of Krishna Janmashtami.

Earlier, a Hindu temple in Lahore was destroyed to pave the way for the construction of a multi-storied commercial building. In 2012, a century-year-old temple was demolished in Karachi, Pakistan, along with several houses, leaving nearly 40 Hindus homeless.

In 2020, the Mata Rani Bhatiyani Hindu temple in Tharparkar, Sindh was vandalised by miscreants. The miscreants desecrated the idols and set fire to holy scriptures.

Also, in 2020, an Islamist mob desecrated the construction site of the first Hindu temple in Islamabad-Shri Krishna Temple Islamabad. Yet again in October 2020, Goddess Durga’s idols have been vandalised, stripped down, and damaged in Nagarparkar, the Sindh Province of Pakistan.

December 2020 witnessed a mob of hundred people led by the local Muslim clerics, destroying and setting on fire a Hindu temple in Karak district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.

In August 2021, a Muslim mob stormed and vandalized a Hindu temple in Rahim Yar Khan, Punjab, damaging and burning down the Hindu idols at the Siddhi Vinayak Temple.

Hindus have experienced both historical and ongoing religious persecution and systematic violence, in the form of forced conversions, documented massacres, demolition and desecration of temples, as well as the destruction of educational centers. While massive in scale, some of these events may need to be viewed in their historical context and relative impact.
