More on the persecution of Hindus in Pakistan: the very existence of a non-Muslim house of worship is considered to be a threat to Islam. Islamic Tolerance Alert: “‘Your temple is a threat to our religion,'” from Rediff, March 16 (thanks to G.):
I am a Pandit and also did some hakeemi on the side with natural medicines. There was no problem in our village till very recently. I had a very small temple near my home. One day, some other villagers came and said the presence of your temple is a threat to our religion. It should not be there. I pleaded with them to spare the temple but had no other option but to take the idols inside the house….
