Pakistan failed to protect Sri Krishna temple in lahore - India questions Pakistani act of explicit religious targeting
Media Release
Jun. 16, 2006

Amid growing condemnation of the demolition of the only temple in Lahore, government said it has ‘taken up’ the matter with Pakistan.

"We have seen media reports of the demolition of the Krishna temple and this matter has been taken up with the Pakistani authorities," External Affairs Ministry spokesman Navtej Sarna said.

Without giving details, he said the matter had been taken up at a ‘sufficiently senior level’ with the Pakistan High Commission.

News reports from Pakistan said the country's Evacuee Trust Property Board, which administers historical shrines of religious minorities there, had allowed a jeweller to demolish Lahore's Krishna mandir--the last Hindu temple in that city-- to build a commercial establishment in its place.
