Pakistan PM Imran Khan Halts Work Of First Hindu Temple In Islamabad
A group of fundamentalists had vandalised the boundary walls of the Krishna temple, which has resulted in the work being stopped by the Capital Development Authority of Islamabad.
The construction of Islamabad’s first-ever Hindu temple has hit a major roadblock, even as Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has ordered that the referral of this matter be handed over to the Council of Islamic Ideology, which is a government-approved body that advises on religious matters. The construction of the temple was stopped by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) of Islamabad after a group of men had vandalised the boundary walls of the construction site.
A video of this vandalism had gone viral, with people on social media calling it an attack on Hindus living in Pakistan. Imran Khan had himself approved the construction of the temple earlier, having allocated government funding for it as well. A team of the CDA had then visited the temple site and had instructed the workers to stop working on the boundary wall. This decision was taken because a building plan had not been submitted to the authority.
