Pakistan's Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Government on February 8, 2021 to rebuild a century-old Hindu temple that was vandalised by a mob in the province. Court asked Government to submit a timeline for its completion and ordered to inform if any recovery or arrest has been made regarding the issue.
In January, the SC had ordered the Provincial Government to recover the money for the construction of the temple from those who had burnt it. Evacuee Trust Property Board lawyer Ikram Chaudhry said, “The Government had approved Rs. 30.41 million for the reconstruction of the temple."
Temple in Terri village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Karak district was targated by members of radical Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam party in December 2020. The Evacuee Trust Property Board manages religious properties and shrines of migrated Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan.
