Article on Jain Temple in Pakistan and the recent function in Mumbai

 



I recently tried to suggest a Pakistani newspaper Express Tribune (it is associated with New York Times' International Herald Tribune) to do a report on the recent 200th anniversery of the Godiji Parshwanath Temple in Bombay.

They however asked me write the article.

You can see it here

A few Jains have suggested that the some of the Jain temples in Pakistan should be restored, however some others have suggested that it would be improper because there are no Jains in Pakistan (as far as I know). Thus daily worship of the images would be an issue.

Incidentally I have just recently found that 3 Jain images, complete intact, are under active worship in Pakistan by some local tribals.
