in interesting article about Pakistan. Would like to know what my Pakistani friends especially Brave45 think about it.

Hindu temple in Lahore demolished

Quote:
ISLAMABAD: The only Hindu temple in the Pakistani city of Lahore has been demolished to pave the way for construction of a multi-storied commercial building.

The temple was recently demolished after officials of the Evacuee Property Trust Board (EPTB), the government body maintaining properties of minorities, specially Hindus and Sikhs, reportedly concealed facts from the board chairman about the nature of the building, daily 'Dawn' reported on Tuesday.

A private developer was allowed to demolish 'Krishna Mandir' at Wachhoowali, Rang Mahal and raise a commercial building in its place in violation of the EPTB's own scheme for management and disposal of urban evacuee trust properties, it said.

Well they've managed to reduce the percentage of Hindu's in Pakistan from around 35% when the country was first indpependant to the current 2 or 3%. How else do you think they've been achieving this?

India did not demolish the mosque. It was the work of fanatics.

But, will our dear neighbour strive to close the gap between the two. Above all, they preach us on such values. Will there be a widespread condemnation of the act in Pakistan?

I think Pakistan needs to revisit its concept of theocracy, or at least stop preaching others.

I have absolutely no hesitation in acknowledging that, but would the govt, media, and people of Pakistan acknowledge what they've done since 1947. Is there a count of what all has happened since. Would you acknowledge the same way I did. If not, then please don't preach. Maybe I am asking for too much.

while I am against the demoloshing of the temple, let me inform you that the temple was in an area which had become very congested and the temple was already in very bad shape, in ruins.It was hardly recognizable.

The temple was not being used or visited for any purpose. There are virtually no Hindus in Lahore. The only few ones living are mostly in Sind area.

Pak. has less than 1% Hindu population from the beginning.

Wrong. Check your facts again please.

This is not a Muslim-bashing thread. The fact of the matter is that there is ongoing persecution of minorities in Islamic countries, not all though. And it cannot be compared to the works of fundamentalists in other countries (ie: India, USA) because they are not systematic. Denial will not make the problem go away, you must address it head on.

And by the way I applaud Qatar for everything they've done. It's definately going in the right direction.

The BJP was not in power at the time of babri destruction. As much as I detest the BJP, while they were in power, they kept the VHP and RSS in check, the BJP with Vajpayee as PM were quiet moderate in comparision to
the rhetoric. You didn't see reduction in laws protecting muslims and thier rights, although that is exactly what the fundies of RSS and VHP wanted.
India is still secular country and will remain even if BJP comes back to power, unlike Pakistan which has systematically driven out Hindu's, Sikhs, Christians.

As for the temple, I am saddened to hear it's demise, as I was when the idiots destroyed Barbi. However places of faith need to have worshippers who worship there, otherwise it's just like another building.

Cheers,

I am sorry but you are comparing pre 1971 facts with those we have today. The majority of the hindu population was in Eastern Pakistan (Bangladesh) but when it got seperated after the war the hindu population decreased significantly as well. Should also add that I have travelled all over Pakistan since the past 10 years and never have I seen any kind of hatred, prosecution of any Hindu or Christian mainly b/c they live in their own communities. Plus the minority groups have representation in the parliment and we regularly have a Sikh pilgramage every year where Sikh from all over the world come to lahore, I do not believe any one of them have faced any problems what so over. By the way our very own pakistani cricket team has a hindu bowler (Danish Kaneria) who we are counting on for our upcoming England tour.

 confused 

The Babri Mosque (Arabic: Babri Masjid بابری مسجد) (Hindi: बाबरी मस्जिद) was a mosque constructed by order of the first Mughal emperor of India, Babur, in Ayodhya in the 16th century. Before the 1940s, the mosque was called Masjid-i Janmasthan ("mosque of the birthplace"). "

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babri_Mosque



"The mosque was destroyed on December 6, 1992, by a crowd of 75,000 people [2](karsevaks) of the VHP and other associated groups. However, some estimates put the number at 200,000 (Growth & Change, Spring 2000). The destruction occurred at the end of Advani's rathayatra, and there is some evidence that it was pre-planned by nationalist groups.

LK Advani was present at the rostrum constructed opposite the Mosque on the day of its destruction and was the guest of honour. He is believed to have witnessed the events without protest. Witnesses report that many of the speeches on loudspeakers on that day praised Advani for mobilizing opinion for the destruction of the mosque. It is thought that the demolition was further incited via microphone by firebrand Uma Bharati of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), along with two top associates, Sadhvi Ritambhara and Achraya Dharmendra. Bharati in her several turns at the microphone articulated two slogans to the crowds, 'Ram nam satya hai, Babri Masjid dhvasth hai,' (True is the name of Ram; the Babri Masjid has been demolished) and 'Ek dhakka aur do, Babri masjid tod do' (Give one more push, and break the Babri Masjid)."

A traveller from Canada (even if you happen to be of Pakistani origin) cannot comment on such a thing. You do not know or experience how the poor masses live or the crap they go through on a daily basis. For example, Pakistan's archaic "Blasphemy law". Basically all it takes is a Muslim to accuse a Christian of desecrating a koran and game over. Guilty till proven innocent.

No u are still not getting the point, the majority of hindus were always saturated within Eastern Pakistan which got seperated in 1971 thus taking with it a huge population of hindus. Whenever a country is seperated the stats of the local population always tend to change dramatically especially when u have a concentrated group of people in one region of the country which was provided independece.

End of story eh?
And the murders and killings of Muslims after that was just nothing. India did not destroy it, it just didn't stop the thousands who announced the date and time of its destruction. That is fanaticism. This Hindu Temple is yet another victim building of the huge construction boom in Lahore where investors just want anything in their path razed with least cost in $$. The NCA, National College of Arts in Lahore, the most prestigious arts (especially Architecture) college in Pakistan has many of its students often busy demonstrating the policies of the development authorities that do little to save the priceless cultural or historic building in the path of their ambitions. A far cry from the thousands of Muslims killed after the Babri Mosque's destruction while the security forces provided cover to the fanatics as they brought the Mosque down brick by brick.

Quoting Marco (Reply 2):
How else do you think they've been achieving this?

I am waiting for a response to an earlier post asking for you guys to post something similar to thousands of Muslims rampaging through a city with lists of Hindus etc, killing them all by stabbing or burning alive, with the government not doing anything and then at the end giving double compensation to the Muslim victims of violence as happened in Gujarat and around the time of the destruction of Babri Mosque. I am waiting...
The most you will find may be bombs set up by bas***ds often paid by RAW who conduct sneak attacks etc. I can't imagine a temple being brought down in Pakistan ever without Hindu fanatics killing thousands of Muslims in India as a reprisal. I don't remember any church or temple brought down in the aftermath of the destruction of Babri Mosque.

The destruction of a historical building like the Babri Mosque, subsequent killing of thousands and the state sponsored massacres like the one in Gujarat are pretty hard to hide. No doubt about the fact that many Indians elsewhere who believe in India's true ideals were shocked but it wasn't enough to bring anyone to justice. Hell they discriminated in compensating the victims.

Pakistan and Pakistanis are more than aware of their short comings and are 100 times more open in acknowledging the gaps and mistakes. You will not find even close to a similar number of people justifying the wrongs as you do, be it the destruction of the Babri Mosque (as some have done above in this very thread) or the lack of outrage over the fact that the killers of the Gujarati Muslims still lead the state.
