A grand temple is to be built in Islamabad, though work began six months ago, but radical fundamentalists rallied and forced the Imran Khan government to suspend the work. After which the government stopped work but now the matter seems to be quiet and permission has been given for its construction again.
At the same time, however, the government has made some clarifications and conditions regarding the construction of the temple.
