Administrative control of the federal government's historic katasraj temple complex of Pakistan unit Ivakyui Trust property (ETPB) has been submitted. ETPB looks after the religious shrines of minorities in Pakistan.
Katasraj is one of the holiest sites of Hindus in the Punjab province of Pakistan. These temples are located near Katas Sarovar. ETPB Deputy Director Faraj Abbas said on Sunday, "In view of the Supreme Court's decision, administrative control of the historic Katasraj temples has been withdrawn from the Punjab government after 15 years to the ETPB. A related ceremony took place at Katasraj on Saturday. 'Abbas has been appointed as the administrator of the Katasraj temple complex.
In 2006, the Parvez Musharraf government withdrew administrative control of Katasraj from the ETPB and handed it over to the Punjab government. The Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered in February this year that administrative control of the Katasraj temple complex should be given to the ETPB.
