The justice and peace commission of Pakistan’s episcopal conference decried an Islamist attack on a Hindu temple, calling it “the fruit of hatred and premeditated instigation,” according to the Fides news service.
The Reuters news agency reported that a large mob set fire to the temple after a Hindu was accused of tearing pages from a copy of the Quran.
