‘Hindus have pardoned the miscreants’ claims the Provincial Government
Peshawar (Pakistan) – Provincial Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa District in Pakistan has decided to withdraw cases against 350 people accused of burning down a Hindu Temple last year. The Government has claimed, ‘the cases are withdrawn after the local Hindus have pardoned the accused’. In a reconciliation meeting held by the Government, Hindus made an out-of-court settlement to pardon the mob accused of vandalising the temple. Meanwhile, Hindus are not so happy with the decision to withdraw the cases. They said that rebuilding the temple has been delayed even after the Government’s assurances.
