"One more Desecration of Temple in warhya village at sanghar Distt after Bhoong shareef incident . It is failure of state and all provincial Govts to protect non muslim worship places," Pakistan's National Commission for Minorities member Dr Jaipal Chhabria said in a tweet.

Meanwhile, commenting on the incident and the discrimination that the minority Hindus face in Pakistan, Pakistani rights activist Rahat Austin said, "In Pakistan even false allegation of blasphemy against Islam leads to mob lynching or death sentence but crimes against Non-Muslim Gods goes unpunished".
