On Wednesday the Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) submitted suggestions to the ministry over the making of the Hindu temple in Islamabad.
As per the available reports, the council has sent its recommendations over the establishment of the crematorium, Hindu community center, and the worship place to the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony.
The CII has also suggested opening the temple and Dharamsala at Saidpur and taking measures to make access easy for the Hindu community to the place. It is to be mentioned here that Saidpur has been situated on the slopes of scenic Margalla Hills in Islamabad.
The council has granted a permit of setting up a crematorium in Islamabad at an appropriate location, CII sources said. The CII has also endorsed the construction of a community center for the Hindu minority in Islamabad.
The CII, however, said that it could not endorse the allocation of government funds for the construction of a temple in the federal capital.
