The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has allowed the Hindu community to build a border wall around a cremation complex and a planned temple in Islamabad.
According to the CDA’s official announcement, Hindu communities are allowed to erect border walls around cremation and temple sites in accordance with Section 4.1.1 of the Islamabad Metropolitan Area, 2020 Building Control Rules.
While a CDA official confirmed the developments, he said the Hindu community was now free to build walls around their cremation centers and temple sites.
Regarding the actual construction of the temple and cremation center, the official noted that the Hindu community had not submitted a proposal for an official search for permission to begin construction of the site.
Note that the CDA designated 4 canals for temples, cremations and community centers for the Hindu community in Sector H-9/2 in 2016.
However, in July this year, the CDA prevented the Hindu community from building a wall around the site after religious groups condemned the government’s decision to fund the construction of the temple.
