Reports in Pakistani dailies say that the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB),
a statutory body that is responsible to protect the property of minorities in
Pakistan, sold the temple to a jeweler who promptly destroyed the temple to
make way for a commercial complex. The ETPB Chairman claims that he did not
know that the building was a temple and Pakistani papers say that the board hid
the fact that it sold a temple to the promoter.
There is a small minority of Hindus that continue to live in Pakistan.
Millenniums old Hindu temples in Pakistan are in decrepit condition and are
often used as dumping ground and storage areas. It is not clear if the Indian
Government has officially protested this matter with Pakistan.
