Absence of Lord Ram, Hanuman statues in Katas Raj irks Pak SC 12.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
Pakistan's Supreme Court today expressed concern over the absence of statues of Lord Ram and Hanuman in the historic Katas Raj temple complex in Chakwal district of Punjab province. Hearing a suo motu case on the drying out of the sacred pond in the temple complex, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar asked, "Do the authorities even have the idols or have they been displaced?" The issue was taken up by Justice Nisar on the basis of media reports that the Katas Raj pond was drying up because cement factories nearby were drawing a large amount of water through a number of borewells, severely reducing the sub-soil water level. During today's hearing, three-member bench headed by Justice Nisar termed the cement factories in the area as "destructive", and demanded to know the names of the factories that are located near the temple, Dawn reported. Punjab government's counsel told the court that Best Way Cement Factory Chakwal, Ghareeb Wall Factory and DG Khan Cement were among the factories near the temple, the paper ...
