 A Hindu temple was vandalised in Pakistan’s Sindh province by miscreants who set the holy books and idols on fire, drawing a strong reaction from Prime Minister Imran Khan, who ordered swift and decisive action against the perpetrators.

The incident happened last week in Kumb, a town in Khairpur district. The unidentified assailants fled after the vandalism. Khan took to Twitter to call upon the provincial authorities to act against the culprits. “This is against the teachings of the Quran,” he said. The community has approached the police to register a case against unidentified persons. After the incident, the Hindus in the area held a protest in the city,.

Rajesh Kumar Hardasani, adviser of the Pakistan Hindu Council, has demanded the formation of a special task force for the security of Hindu temples. “These  attacks are done to disturb religious harmony,” he said.
