LAHORE, Punjab: An awfully painful incident for Sikhs has occurred from the roots of Sikhism i.e. Nankana Sahib, where a crowd of Muslims today pelted stones towards Gurdwara Janam Asthan — Sri Nankana Sahib and shouted highly provocative slogans against Sikhs and the Sikhism.
It has come to fore that this crowd was being led by the family of Mohammad Hassan, who had abducted Sikh girl Jagjit Kaur in August – 2019.
In a video, recorded at the site of the protest, the protesters were seen saying bravely that they were against the presence of the Gurdwara there. They even said that they will soon change the name of the place from Nankana Sahib — to Ghulaman-e-Mustafa.
“No Sikh will remain in Nankana,” the Muslims present in the mob can be heard saying in the video of this occurrence.
In the meantime, the apex Sikh body Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhik Committee has strongly condemned this tremendously hurting incident.
Stating concern over the day by day flourishing anti-Sikh environment in Pakistan, SGPC president Gobind Singh Longowal has asked the Pakistan government to certify security of Sikhs and take a strict action against this group of mobsters.
“We stand in solidarity with Sikhs living in Pakistan and will not tolerate any kind of ill language against our historic Sikh shrines,” Longowal said while demanding immediate arrest of these mobsters.
