    Pakistan's Hindu and Sikh communities have condemned the demolition of a pre-partition 87-year-old Hindu temple by its owner in Rawalpindi's Bhabra Bazaar.

    The temple on Tipu Road, opposite the Rawalpindi Medical College, was being used by Hindus and Sikhs in the city to perform last rituals of their dear ones.

    According to the plaque fixed on the building, Lala Tansukh Rai, the Raees-e-Azam Rawalpindi, had constructed the temple in memory of his wife in 1923.

    The Pakistan Hindu Sikh Social Welfare Council said that the Auqaf Department, an autonomous body of the Provincial Government, was bound to save the temple, and it is their duty to protect the buildings related to the minorities, The News reports.

    They have also appealed to the government to direct the Auqaf Department to take action against demolition of temples in future. (ANI)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
