A century-old temple here was hurriedly demolished by a builder despite a stay order by a court, triggering protests by the Hindu community Sunday.
Besides razing the pre-Partition Shri Rama Pir Mandir in Karachi's Soldier Bazar, the builder demolished several houses near it Saturday.
Nearly 40 people, a majority of them Hindus, became homeless as a result, The Express Tribune reported Sunday.
Following the demolition, the Pakistan Hindu Council organised a protest outside the Karachi Press Club Sunday afternoon. They protested the demolition by the builder and the lack of action on the part of authorities.
A witness said the area was cordoned off by police and Pakistan Rangers. Outsiders were not allowed to enter the area.
