The restoration of an ancient Hindu temple complex in Punjab has been inaugurated by Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The 900-year-old site is one of the holiest in South Asia for Hindus and the visit is being seen as a symbolic gesture by the premier to appeal the the Muslim country’s minority communities. At the ceremony, attended by senior Christian, Sikh and Hindu leaders, Sharif chastised hardline Muslim scholars who use “strange interpretations” of Islam to preach hate against other religions.
