NA committee to resolve dispute over ‘temple’ site: report

RAWALPINDI: The National Assembly Standing Committee on Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony will resolve a dispute between Gawalmandi’s local Hindu community and the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) pertaining to the ownership of Swami Narayan Temple, reported a local media outlet.

Members of the standing committee led by Shagufta Jumani were supposed to visit the site of dispute on Saturday but the visit was cancelled.

Members of the local Hindu community claim that the site was a temple but ETPB officials claim the property was allocated to a Hindu couple who later embraced Islam. In addition, the Hindu community is of the opinion that servants of the temple converted to Islam after which the property was sealed.
