The Babri Masjid was demolished in Pakistan after the demolition of several temples.
When the Hindu fundamentalists had demolished the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya, few people would have thought that what kind of reaction would be in neighboring countries.
A small population of Hindus resides in Pakistan and there are also their religious places where they pray to their God.
But after the demolition of Babri mosque on December 6, 1992, it did not take much time to react in Pakistan.
After the Babri mosque, about 100 temples were either landed in Pakistan or they were severely damaged.
Though most of these temples were not inhabited, that is, there was no regular worship.
In some of these temples, the people who came to Pakistan after the partition in 1947 had taken shelter.
On December 8, 1992, a Jain temple in Lahore collapsed by frenzy. Where now only its dust-blasted ruins have remained.
I had talked to some people living in these temples.
These people said that through a crowd that came to ruin the temples in December 1992, they had requested that they leave these temples.
Recalling that measure, people said, “We told them … these are our homes, do not attack us.”
Even today, in Hindu temple of Rawalpindi, Hindu pilgrims come to worship. The peak of this temple was demolished after the demolition of Babri.
If the Government wanted then its peak could be re-established.
