Pakistani government orders reconstruction of Hindu temple vandalized by mob in Karak

After the attack on a temple in Terri village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's (KP) Karak district in Pakistan, the provincial government has ordered authorities to reconstruct the damaged temple and vowed to bring the culprits to justice post strong outrage from human rights activists and the Hindu community leaders. Over 30 people, mostly members of a radical Islamist party, were arrested after the Hindu temple was vandalized and set on fire by a mob protesting against its expansion work in northwest Pakistan. This was done after members of the Hindu community received permission from local authorities to renovate its decades-old building, according to witnesses.
