Pakistan demolishes Hinglaj Mata Mandir in Sindh, UNESCO-recognised Sharda Peeth near LoC

Pakistan is under scrutiny for alleged human rights violations, specifically targeting Hindu places of worship. The Hinglaj Mata Mandir in Sindh fell victim to this crackdown on religious minorities, with officials in Tharparkar District invoking a court order to justify the demolition of the Hindu temple located in Mithi city.

Furthermore, information from CNN News18 reveals the demolition of another Hindu site – the Sharda Peeth Mandir (temple) near the Line of Control (LOC). This action occurred despite a standing Supreme Court order aimed at protecting the temple. Reports also indicate the construction of a coffee house near the temple, scheduled for inauguration in November this year.

Top government sources acknowledge that such atrocities against Hindus are not isolated incidents in Pakistan. The community has faced persistent challenges, including targeted violence, killings, and encroachments on their lands. Local involvement in these acts, often followed by government endorsement, has been a recurring pattern.

Even the Sharda Peeth, recognised as a UNESCO site, did not escape destruction. The demolition contradicts international preservation efforts and raises questions about protecting cultural and religious heritage in the region. These incidents underscore the ongoing persecution faced by Hindus in the country.
