Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, while condemning the attack on the Hindu temple in Larkana, said that Islam is a religion of peace, tranquillity, brotherhood and respect.

In a media statement issued on Sunday, the minister said that any conspiracy designed to create conflict between the Hindus and Muslims would be foiled.

The police have arrested the individual who conducted the attack on the temple in Larkana and he would be taken to task for his crime, Memon maintained.

He said the Sindh government was the custodian of places of worship of minorities and would compensate the loss and damage done to the temple. The temple would be reconstructed under Sindh government’s aegis, bearing all expenses.

Since Islam is a religion of peace and always preaches religious tolerance, there is no room for any misbehaviour in any form, the minister said.

Memon appealed to the people of Larkana to stay united and thwart any attempts to create confrontation, unrest or hostility.

I'm disgusted and ashamed as a Pakistani to see this kind mentality and feel sad and sorry to those poor innocent pakistani hindus who are the target for this evil foreign game.

Ravi | 6 years ago | Reply @ Ali.. I need to know the name of the temple which was destroyed in Pakistan and was built again bigger and better with the aid of Govt. ?? I am a Pakistani, but never heard or read about such a thing happening. And if a Mosque is destroyed in India, that does not mean a temple should be destroyed in Pakistan.. Atleast we Hindus don't go on damaging shops and properties when such injustice happens over here..
