Kader Mohideen in a statement issued here has appealed to Pakistan to quickly start renewal of the ruined temple and hand it over to the Hindu devotees at the earliest.

"Pakistan Muslim brothers ought to understand that the pride of the majority lies in protection of the minorities honourable existence. The Holy Quran and the Holy Prophet Muhammed have clearly stated that the religion of Islam does not confront but confirms all religions of the world.
