Two months ago in Pakistan, on the occasion of Janmashtami, the old Hindu temple of Kotri town has been vandalized after the demolition of the Shri Krishna temple in the Sangar district of Sindh province.
Unidentified persons stole three silver rings worn around the necks of deities and around Rs 25,000 in cash from the donation box of the temple here. These people had entered the temple by breaking the lock.
Police wrote a report telling the matter of theft
The latest case is of a Shiva temple in Kotri in the Sindh province of Pakistan. Here the idol of Shiva broke and the attackers fled after taking off the jewels from the necks of the goddesses. The police have registered a case against unknown thieves under sections 457, 380, 295, and 297 PPC on the complaint of the caretaker of the temple Bhagwandas. The caretaker said the weight of the necklace was 10 tola.
Jamshoro area SSP Javed Baloch, however, denied reports of desecration of the temple, terming it a case of theft. Meanwhile, Sindh Minority Affairs Minister Gyanchand Israni made the SSP the director to register the FIR and bring the culprits to justice. “Such incident happened at a time when the Hindu community was busy celebrating the Diwali festival. Such incidents should stop.
Outrage among local Hindus
Tension prevailed in the Darya Band area of Kotri in Sindh province due to this incident. There is anger among the people over the vandalism of the Shiva statue. There is also resentment among the people that the police have registered a case but till now no one has been arrested. Meanwhile, the Minority Affairs Minister has sought a report of the entire incident from the police. It also reports that the attackers stole gold idols from the temple.
The purpose of the incident was to spread tension
Jamshoro SSP Javed Baloch said that the temple management suspects that some people from a nearby residential area had looted the temple. Although he denied that the idols were vandalized, he said that the incident was done to create tension in the area on the last day of Diwali. Police have increased the security of temples all around so that incidents can be stopped in advance.
