Pakistan: Temple handed over to Hindus after repairs, 8-year-old child was vandalized after bail

After repairing a Hindu temple demolished by a mob in Pakistan last week, it has been handed over to the people of the Hindu community. Information in this regard was given by a government official on Monday. District Administrative Officer Khurram Shahzad said that the local Hindu people would soon start worshiping at the temple.

Five days ago, a group of Muslim people attacked the temple in Bhong of East Punjab province. These people ransacked the temple and set the main gate on fire. His anger was that the court had granted bail to an eight-year-old Hindu child who was accused of allegedly insulting a religious school.

The 8-year-old, who was arrested, is alleged to have urinated on the school library, where religious articles related to Islam were written. The mob alleged that the child had committed blasphemy, which in Pakistan is punishable by death.

In this case, later dozens of people were arrested on suspicion of being involved in the act of demolition of Hindu temple and it was said that these people will have to pay money for the repair of the temple. Let us tell you that both Hindus and Muslims live peacefully in Muslim-majority Pakistan, but in the last few years, incidents of attacks on Hindu temples have increased.
