Supreme Court orders money recovery from accused in Karak temple burning case
The Supreme Court of Pakistan, in a suo motu notice against the burning of the Karak temple, has ordered to recover the money from the accused involved in the temple attack within a month.
A two-member bench headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan held a hearing here on Wednesday.
Is it possible for a person to be proved innocent after a trial, and then what happens to the money that was collected from him? The Chief Justice stated that the Advocate General should speak with consideration and deliberation. This is the result of a court order. Ramesh Kumar, a Hindu politician, claimed that the road leading to the temple had been stopped and that he had been ordered to speak with local priests. They will also deal with the Ulema, according to the Chief Justice, if they come to town.

Accused Rehmat Salam Khattak said, “I am innocent. I have nothing to do with those who damaged the temple.” He said that 100 innocent people have been caught, I kept stopping those who damaged the temple. The Chief Justice said that if the money is being received, then now you are in trouble.
Rehmat Salam Khattak said that I am being abused. The Chief Justice said that what you are saying is a court order. Advocate General KP said that the restoration work of the temple has been completed.
The Chief Justice said that the minority community can expand the place of worship as much as they want, people can give land and then if the Hindu community wants to build a temple in the whole of Karak, they can do so.
The Chief Justice said that the Hindu community reached an agreement with the locals and then the accused were granted bail. Advocate General KP said that more than Rs. 33 million has been spent on the restoration of the temple. The Chief Justice said that when Rs. 33 million is distributed equally among all the accused, then everyone’s minds will come to rest.
