Attacks on places of worship of religious minorities in Pakistan have increased. Earlier this month, a mob attacked a Hindu temple in Bhong. The Pakistani government then completed the restoration of the temple and arrested around 90 people involved in the attack.

A Hindu temple has been vandalized in Khipro in the Sanghar district of Pakistan’s Sindh province. An idol of Lord Krishna was also broken. The incident happened on August 30, a day known as Shri Krishna Janmashtami, which is celebrated to mark the birth of Lord Krishna.

Pakistani rights activist Rahat Austin shared an image of the vandalized idol, tweeting that the temple was damaged in order to insult a Hindu god as people celebrated Lord Krishna’s birthday.

According to media reports, around seven Hindu temples have been vandalized and destroyed in Pakistan since 2020.
