Karak: A mob attacked the shrine of Hindu saint and set it on fire in Karak. The incident took place in a remote area of Karak’s Teri town.
According to local resident, the mob of more than thousand people was led by local elders of a religious political party demanded the removal of Hindu shrine. After speeches by elders, the mob attacked and demolished the shrine built before 1920.
Hindu communities are residing in almost every corner of the country but unfortunately, they are deprived of basic rights and their religious places are also not safe.
Various attacks were reported in Sindh too in which mobs attacked temples in Badin and Nagarparkar. Local activists termed weak justice system the reason of temple attacks.
Human Rights minister, Shireen Mazari condemned the incident in her tweet.
