    Durga Temple in Pakistan vandalized: PPFA urges PM Modi to take it up with Islamabad

    Miscreants allegedly vandalized the temple in Nagarparkar locality and even desecrated the idol of Maa Durga soon after the Navratri prayer offered

    GUWAHATI: The Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA), while expressing annoyances over the vandalism at an ancient Durga temple in Sindh province of Pakistan recently, urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pursue with his counterpart in Islamabad for adequate protection and preservation of all holy Hindu shrines in the trouble-torn neighboring country.

    Media reports reveal that a group of Islamists on Saturday, miscreants vandalized the temple in Nagarparkar locality and even desecrated the idol of Maa Durga soon after the Navratri prayer was offered.

    Nagarparkar tehsil, which has a population of over 90,000 Hindus, is accomplished as a rich Hindu heritage site with another temple dedicated to Maa Jabal Durga. Lately, the region has witnessed a series of forceful conversions of minority Hindus into Islam.

    However, the attacked shrine was reported in some Indian media outlets as being the sacred Hinglaj temple in Balochistan (occupied by Pakistan), which shares a connection with Kamrup Kamakhya legends. The Hinglaj shakti peeth temple is located in a mountain cave on the bank of Hingol river inside Hingol National Park, adjacent to the Makran coast of the Arabian Sea.
