Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi in a video statement, while strongly opposing the establishment of the Hindu temple in Islamabad, said that Pakistan came into existence in the name of Islam and building a new temple in the capital is not only against the spirit of Islam but it is also an insult to the ‘state of Madinah’.

He said that on the occasion of Makkah Victory, the last of the Prophets, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW), along with Hazrat Ali (RA) broke 360 idols in Baitullah Sharif and at the same time said, “Truth has come and falsehood has vanished.”

Ch Pervaiz Elahi said, “We are with the rights of minorities, existing temples should be repaired. The Katas Raj Temple was repaired during my tenure: For the first time in my tenure, we budgeted for the repair of churches in Pakistan.”

It is pertinent to note that construction of the first Hindu temple in Islamabad has begun on Tuesday. The site of the Shri Krishna Mandir (temple) complex will include a crematorium, accommodation for visitors, a community hall and a parking space spread across an area of four kanals.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had approved a grant of Rs100 million for the construction of the first Hindu temple in the capital.
