Whether Pakistan will allow Indians to demonstrate Anniversary day of the Hindu Temples destroyed in Pakistan?

Whether Pakistan will allow Indians to demonstrate Anniversary day of the Hindu Temples destroyed in Pakistan?

இந்தியர்கள், பாகிஸ்தானில் இந்துக்கோயில்கள் இடிக்கப்பட்ட வருடாந்திர நினைவு நாளில் ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் செய்ய முடியுமா?


Mahmud of Ghazni invaded the Indian subcontinent during the early 11th century. His campaigns across the ganges plains are often cited for their iconoclast plundering and destruction of temples such as those at Mathura and he looked upon their destruction as an act of Jihad. Mahmud’s invasion as one in which he put “thousands of Hindus to the sword” and made a pastime of “raising pyramids of the skulls of the Hindus”. Mahmud of Ghazni sacked the Somnath Temple in 1026, and looted it of gems and precious stones and the famous Shiva lingam of the temple was destroyed. Later the temple was demolished by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1706. Muhammad Ghori committed genocide against Hindus at Kol (modern Aligarh), Kalinjar and Varanasi, according to Hasan Nizami’s Taj-ul-Maasir, 20,000 Hindu prisoners were slaughtered and their heads offered to crows. The reign of Aurangzeb was particularly brutal. No aspect of Aurangzeb’s reign is more cited – or more controversial – than the numerous desecrations and even the destruction of Hindu temples.


Aurangzeb banned Diwali, placed a jizya (tax) on non-Muslims and martyred the ninth Sikh guru Tegh Bahadur. During his reign, tens of thousands of temples were desecrated: their facades and interiors were defaced and their murtis (divine images) looted. In many cases, temples were destroyed entirely; in numerous instances mosques were built on their foundations, sometimes using the same stones. Among the temples Aurangzeb destroyed were two that are most sacred to Hindus, in Varanasi and Mathura. In both cases, he had large mosques built on the sites. The Kesava Deo temple in Mathura, marked the place that Hindus believe was the birth place of Shri Krishna. In 1661


Aurangzeb ordered the demolition of the temple, and constructed the Katra Masjid mosque. Traces of the ancient Hindu temple can be seen from the back of the mosque. Aurangzeb also destroyed what was the most famous temple in Varanasi- the Vishwanath Temple.[29] The temple had changed its location over the years, but in 1585 Akbar had authorized its location at Gyan Vapi. Aurangzeb ordered its demolition in 1669 and constructed a mosque on the site, whose minarets stand 71 metres above the Ganges. In 1526 Kabul King Babar destroyed the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, located at the birthplace of Rama, and built the Babri Masjid on the holy site, which has since been a source of tension between the Hindu and Muslim communities. During the 1971 Bangladesh atrocities the atrocities are identified as genocide.


Many of the victims were Hindus, and the total death toll was in the millions. Known to be victims of kidnapping and forced conversion to Islam. Around 20 to 25 Hindu girls are abducted every month and converted to Islam forcibly. Several Hindu temples have been destroyed in Pakistan. A notable incident was the destruction of the Ramna Kali Mandir in former East Pakistan. The temple was bulldozed by the Pakistan Army on March 27, 1971.The Dhakeshwari Temple was severely damaged during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, and over half of the temple’s buildings were destroyed. In 2006, the last Hindu temple in Lahore was destroyed to pave the way for construction of a multi-storied commercial building.


In Pakistan several Hindu Temples were ransacked and Hindus were killed. Indian leaders are keeping silence about this. Kabul King Babar demolished Ram Temple and constructed Babri Masjid on the site of Ram Temple in India. There is also no-body to question for this. Leaving the atrocities done by the Muslim Rulers to the Indians, Indian Government giving protection to the protestors of the Babri Masjid anniversary. It will only grow the differences between the two communities.


The Indian Government should think, whether Pakistan will allow the Anniversary day of the Hindu Temples destroyed their? Indians in India wants to live as friends with Muslims. The Indian Government should take steps to enlighten the Muslim community to leave their Anniversary day in future and to leave their differences with Indians.
