Pakistan has rejected Indian Foreign Office’s remarks about the Korangi temple vandalization saying that the first investigation report (FIR) had been registered against suspects.
According to police, during the renovation work of Shri Mari Maata Temple, some unidentified suspects entered the Hindu temple and vandalized it.
The foreign office has condemned the incident and has harshly rejected remarks given by Indian foreign affairs ministry about the unfortunate temple’s vandalization in Karachi. The statement of FO also included that Pakistan did not support any kind of harm to religious places, unlike India where state machinery supported action against minorities, especially Muslims.
Senior police officer Faisal Bashir Memon told media that a case has been registered against the suspects under the law related to defiling a place for worship with intentions of insult.
SHO Korangi Farooq Sandrine stated in a media briefing that the temple situated in a building of Korangi was under renovation when five to six suspects arrived on motorcycles and tried to throw stones. He assured that the suspects would be brought under law soon.
According to media reports, Sanjeev Kumar, a local, said that the suspects first inquired about the “Pundit” and then pelted stones towards the temple building.
