Sindh government and its culture and heritage department are being harshly criticized for its restoration initiative carried out at historical sites.

Earlier it emerged that restoration work is done at Tando Fazal Monument (Masjid) Hyderabad. And the irony is that from pictures it appears that the heritage sites have been painted white and refurbished, instead of being preserved in their original state.

The pictures were initially circulated in a tweet by the culture department of the province which has been deleted now.

Later, it emerged that the restoration drive of ancient sites has whitewashed the sacred paintings inside a 12 centuries old JainTemple at Nangar Parkar.

People turned to social media expressing their outrage saying that in order to restore the ancient site, the government has destroyed its historical status.
