Pakistan Fails to maintain equality among residents

Pakistan demolishes Two Hindu Temples in Sindh

Within a span of 24 hours, two Hindu temples, including one that has stood for over 150 years, were subjected to acts of desecration in Pakistan’s Sindh province.

On Saturday morning, the first incident occurred in Karachi, where the historic Mari Mata Temple in Soldier Bazaar was completely demolished. This incident took place during the early morning hours when the area was engulfed in darkness due to a lack of electricity with the help of Diggers and Bulldozers. 

According to reports, the land where the temple stood had been targeted by various land grabbers who sought to seize the property. The temple itself had a history dating back 150 years. During the process of demolition, police personnel were reportedly present to provide security to the staff carrying out the demolition. The temple property was being managed by the Madrasi Hindu Community, which is based in Karachi.

This is not the first instance of mishandling that the temple has faced. In 2022, the idols within the temple were mishandled, and this act was seen as a deliberate act of hatred targeting the Hindu community. The Hindu community has made an appeal to various authorities, including the Pakistan-Hindu Council, Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, and the Inspector General of Sindh police, urging them to investigate and take action regarding the matter. 

The following day, on Sunday, another distressing incident occurred when a group of dacoits attacked another Hindu temple in the Kashmore region of Sindh. Shockingly, the attackers were reported to have used rocket launchers during the assault. In addition to targeting the temple, the assailants also attacked neighboring houses in the vicinity. As the violence escalated, a police unit arrived at the scene to bring the situation under control and restore order. 

According to reports, the attack on the temple involved a group of 8 to 9 gunmen who swiftly fled the scene after the assault. The police have initiated a search operation to locate and apprehend the perpetrators responsible for the attack.

The Human Rights Commission Pakistan has expressed its support for the Hindu community and condemned the attack on the temple. Their stance is in favor of protecting the rights and well-being of the Hindu community, denouncing such acts of violence and discrimination. 

“HRCP is alarmed by reports of deteriorating law and order in the districts of Kashmore and Ghotki in Sindh, where some 30 members of the Hindu community – including women and children – have allegedly been held hostage by organised criminal gangs.”- HRCP Tweet on Sunday July 16. 

Reportedly, there are around 90 lakh Hindus residing in Pakistan, and they have often been targeted by extremists. The recurring incidents of temple attacks highlight the challenges faced by religious minorities in Pakistan. These acts of violence occur despite the presence of the government, which raises concerns about the ability to maintain law and order and ensure the safety of minority communities.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from

    any recommendations, please share. With thanks!
