What happened in Ghotki?
According to the available reports and words from Sindh’s minority activists, a student accused his principal, Notan Das of blasphemy in Ghotki. Following the accusation, the enraged mob attacked the school and vandalized it. However, not only the school but the wrath also found its way to the local Hindus as temples and properties were attacked as well.
According to prominent Hindu activist Kapil Dev, Notan Das has been heading the school for 30 years. The recent accusation against him is purposeful and people behind it have vested interests to disrupt the ambiance of the city, where people belonging to both religions have coexisted peacefully for ages.
”Hindus living in Ghotki are under siege as miscreants are vandalizing properties of Hindus & temples after a teacher Notan Das was accused of blasphemy. Mr. Das has been teaching for 30 years, but some vested interests are distorting peace & interfaith harmony in Sindh,” Kapil wrote.
