    ISLAMABAD: The minority Hindu community in Pakistan is struggling to protect its temples and the land around them from the land mafia, a media report said on Wednesday.

    Most of the Hindu inhabitants migrated to India at the time of Partition, leaving behind a number of properties and places of worship.

    "These properties have been up for grabs. Some allege that locals forged documents in order to occupy land around temples and construct markets. These temples are located in areas where the value of land is very high. This acts as a magnet for the land mafia," Express Tribune reported.

    "No temple here exists that has been spared by land grabbers," claims Amarnath, a resident of Kirtarpura.

    The helpless community can do nothing to protect the dilapidated and plundered buildings, the report said.

    For around 5,000 Hindus living in Rawalpindi, Krishna Mandir is the only place of worship left.

    The temple is built on a small plot which is not enough to accommodate the community members during religious ceremonies.

    "But the fact that this temple remains is also nothing short of an achievement. There was a time when its future was also bleak and even today's there are challenges to its daily existence," the daily said.

    The community members believe that the land mafia attacked temples around which Muslim families were living so that the families would vacate the land and the land grabbers could take over, considering the commercial value.

    Some local politicians led mobs and attacked temples, the report said.

    "There is a perception that the Hindus (who migrated) had buried their wealth in these temples. Temples on the outskirts of the city were dug but when they found nothing, they destroyed the statues and defaced the statues," a community member said.

    Where are those Effing secular Al-Bakistanis now, who whine on internet about ill-treatment of Indian Minorities by Hindus? :mad:

    What are they doing for Hindu minority community in Al-Bakistan?

    illtreatment of minorities in Bhin dia is a fact and we don't have better record protecting minorities either.
    Though we have seen restauration of several temples, gurdvaras and churches of past couple of years.

    Bakistani beoble must look after their minorities. They are also bakistanis and humanity comes before religion.

    Re:

    So Modi was right, and people were opposing him for what he said about sheltering Paki Hindu minority in India. :dude:

    What ill-treatment are you talking about?

    Minorities have been given special privileges in India; minorities enjoy luxuries which normal Hindus dont have here. What Bakis have done for the Baki Minorities?

    restauration - you meant to say restoration?

    Agreed on that. If we even think about suppressing minorities a little bit here, there would be widespread commotion and questioning of the secularism of India.

    Securalism is merely a fake tag and those reservations are only to appease some minorities to bank votes.
    When it comes to reality you see innocent Assam boy beaten to death or muslims being denied properties in cosmopolitan areas like Bandra in Mumbai.

    Pakistanis are in position to lecture others on treatment of minorities.

    Lame excuse to avoid the question: can a muslim buy a house in Bandra, Mumbai?
    The answer is no. RIP fake secularism in India.

    That has nothing to do with secularism. In India, you can't even get some places on rent because you are a non vegetarian. Even hindus and christians can't buy houses in some places.

    I know about this. But just this one case doesn't show the whole picture you ignorant fool. I got Muslim friends living there. Salman khan lives there. Shahrukh khan lives there. Thousands of other middle class and poor Muslims live there.

    I don't know what's the problem with this one. Maybe he didn't go house hunting properly.

    So your generalised claim of Muslims not getting a house in bandra is stupid and mid-informed.

    The paki called @Neo is an incorrigible moron. I am just stating a fact. He spreads the usual fear mongering anti-hindu paki propaganda against India. Pakistan has the worst record in minority affairs, it has no right to comment on India where there are growing.

    why not hindus organize themselves to have dharam yudh against the non believers and protect the holy places/worship places.
    enough of peaceful co-existence shit. the time has come when the minority should take up arms against the terror and atrocities.

    one should reply in a way that conveys message to our opponents and display that when challenged we can take up arms. this will also stop the rant that hindus are cowards.

    They stopped doing anything, after Hindu community betrayed them in 1849.
