The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard the Karak temple attack suo motu notice case. The court ordered to collect money from those involved in the temple attack incident within a month. The court ordered the Chief Secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to distribute more than Rs 33 million in one month to each accused equally.
What happened in the temple:
In December last year, angry mobs set fire to a Hindu temple in Karak district. A police motorcycle was also set on fire. Locals alleged that the Hindu community was illegally expanding the temple, which was reported to the police but no action was taken. Federal Minister for Human Rights Shirin Mazari said that the case was registered according to the local administration.
In January, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan had said that the provincial government would ensure the reconstruction of the temple as soon as possible. Orders have been issued to the concerned authorities for the reconstruction of the temple. In any case, it will be ensured.
In February this year, the Supreme Court ordered the immediate construction of a temple destroyed by angry protesters in Kirkuk.
It should be noted that this temple before the formation of Pakistan was closed after the partition of the subcontinent, but it was reopened in 2015 on the direction of the Supreme Court. An agreement was also reached between the local Hindu and Muslim communities in December 2020 to build on the land adjacent to the temple.
