Karachi, Apr 18 (ANI): Hindu Gymkhana, a historical site and a hub of the Hindu community in Karachi, will soon be handed over to the Hindus, after the National Academy of Performing Arts (NAPA), presently housed in its premises, is shifted out.
Announcing this, Sindh Minister for Culture and Tourism Sassi Palejo said that the site belonged to the Hindu Gymkhana and the Hindu community was a peaceful one, and the government would have the site vacated by NAPA and hand it over to the minority community so that they could take part in their cultural activities.
NAPA would be shifted to another place as the government did not want to create a conflict with the Presidency, The News quoted her as saying.
She said that there was no doubt that the NAPA had been serving its cause to a great extent, and personalities such as Zia Mohiuddin, Talat Hussain and Rahat Kazmi were working hard for the promotion of performing arts. (ANI)
