Islamist mob vandalises Hindu temple in Pakistan, destroys Krishna murti on Janmashtami

While Hindus across the world celebrated Sri Krishna Janmashtami on Monday, August 30, radical Islamists in Pakistan have vandalised a Hindu temple and broken the murti of Shrikrishna at Khipro in the Sanghar district of Sindh province of Pakistan.

The incident happened when locals were celebrating Janmashtami rituals at the temple.

Journalist Aditya Raj Kaul took to Twitter to share the pictures of the vandalised Krishna murti. In one picture, the murti can be seen lying desecrated on a piece of red and white cloth. The hands and one leg of the murti have been broken, as can be seen in the picture. In the other three pictures shared by Kaul, a section of Hindu devotees can be seen carrying and attempting to secure the broken pieces of the Krishna murti together.

He also shared a snippet where an elderly Hindu woman, who was an eyewitness to the crime, is heard categorically saying that some Islamists desecrated the Krishna murti.

In Pakistan, there has been an increase in attacks against religious minorities’ houses of worship in recent years. The international community has repeatedly chastised the country for failing to protect the interests of its minority. Despite this, the Imran Khan government has done little to address the situation.
