An enraged mob attacked and torched a Hindu temple in Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Wednesday.

It is alleged that a JUI-F rally was held nearby where speakers delivered fiery speeches inciting violence against the community, following which a crowd of Muslims stormed the temple, set it ablaze and razed it to the ground.

However, JUI-F KP Amir Maulana Ataur Rahman insisted that his party has nothing to do with the burning down of the temple. He says the rally was over way before the incident took place.

Human rights minister Shireen Mazari has taken notice of the incident and has condemned it. Taking to Twitter she wrote, “Strongly condemn the burning of a Hindu temple by a mob in Karak Khyber Pukhtunkhwa. KP govt must ensure culprits brought to justice. MOHR also moving on this. We as a govt have a responsibility to ensure safety & security of all our citizens & their places of worship.”

    All mouth no pant is the right phrase for Mazari’s statement. . All talk bo action. Pakistanis are religious bigots. Whole hell will be let loose if a mosque is burnt in any part of the world
