Hindus, Sikhs in Pakistan’s KPK to get cremation grounds
The provincial government has enforced Section-IV for the procurement of land at the sites identified for the cremation ground and the graveyard in Peshawar, Nowshera and Kohat districts of the province.
Efforts are on to release the funds for the construction of the cremation ground and the graveyard. Provision for one ambulance to each worship places of minorities in the province is also planned, Minority MPA Ravi Kumar of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) said.
The Christian community after the suicide attack on All Saint Church in Peshawar City on September 22, 2014 brought the issue of non-availability of space for the graveyard in the notice of the provincial government and the Hindu and Sikh community also raised the same issue before the government.
