This is the 11th attack on Hindu temples in Pakistan in the last 22 months.



In Pakistan, a temple has once again been targeted by extremists. The incident took place on Sunday in Khatri mohalla in Thar Parkar district of Pakistan's Sindh province. The temple was demolished by some anti-social elements who attacked the Hinglaj Mata temple.


Remarkably, this is the 11th attack on Hindu temples in Pakistan in the last 22 months.

Krishna Sharma, chairman of the Pakistan Hindu Temple Management Committee, rushed to the spot after receiving information about the attack. "Some Islamic extremists are not intimidated by the Supreme Court of Pakistan or the government of Pakistan," he lamented.



Meanwhile, Hindu organizations have staged protests through marches against the attack on the temple.


Prime Minister Imran Khan's government had promised to protect minorities and temples. In Pakistan, however, minority religious sites are often targeted by extremists.

Earlier in December, a Hindu temple in Karachi, Pakistan's financial capital, was attacked by a mob and the idol of Goddess Durga was smashed in the temple. Karachi is home to a large number of Hindus.



Also, a few months ago, the Ganesh Temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was attacked and destroyed by terrorists.
