After 72 years, the authorities handed over the building of a 200-year-old temple to the Hindu community in Zhob.
The temple was used as a government school for over 30 years but now the school has been shifted to another place. The keys to the doors of the four-room temple building were handed over to the Hindu community leaders at a ceremony held outside the temple.
The deputy commissioner apologized for 70-years delay in handing over the temple to the Hindu community and said that the temple building would be restored to its original condition. After restoration and renovation of the building, members of the Hindu community would be able to use it as a place of worship.
