The construction work on the first Hindu temple in Islamabad stopped

It has been reported that the construction of the boundary wall on the plot allotted to the Shri Krishna Mandir in H/9 sector of the federal capital city has been stopped by the Capital Development Authority (CDA).

According to the details, a team of the building control department of the CDA had visited the temple site and instructed the workers to stop working on the boundary wall.

Mazhar Hussain—the spokesperson of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) said that the action was taken because a building plan had not been submitted to the authority. He said that any construction taking place in the capital city of Islamabad, residential or commercial, requires a building plan to be approved.

Following the decision of the CDA, the Hindu Panchayat in Islamabad has halted the construction and decided to visit the office of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Monday (today) to discuss the matter.

“We had already submitted an application addressed to the Capital Development Authority (CDA) regarding the boundary wall construction on June 19 but got no response from them,” Hindu Panchayat President Pritam Das told.

He said that in the application we claimed that the boundary wall was being built to secure the possession of the plot and it didn’t make any sense for the authority to stop the construction work.

The H/9 plot has been in the possession of the Hindu Panchayat of Islamabad since 2018.

It is pertinent to mention here that once the temple is constructed, it will be the first place of worship for Hindus in the capital city of Islamabad.
