“Being an architect its really heart wrenching to watch such a huge crime/sin to architecture and restoration of this archeological site. Can anyone stop them?” Turning to Facebook, Abbas shared the before and after pictures of certain heritage sites including, Tando Fazal Monument (Masjid) Hyderabad.

It can be seen in the pictures, the heritage sites have been painted white and refurbished, instead of being preserved to their original state.

The pictures initially shared in a tweet by the culture department of the province which has since been deleted.
