Pakistan: Historic Jain temple demolished in Lahore

 



Lahore, March 3, 2016 Notwithstanding a court order, authorities in Pakistan's Punjab province have demolished the remains of a centuries- old Jain temple to pave the way for a controversial metro line project in Lahore. In violation of the Lahore High Court's order to suspend all work on the line within 200 feet of buildings of historical value, the Punjab government on Thursday demolished the remains of the already damaged temple.
