Tablighi Jamaat can’t explain mischief of members after leaving Delhi

While describing the 'difficulty' it faced to transport people out of Delhi, Tablighi Jamaat fails to explain why its associates and affiliates either mingled with people in their respective villages and why many of them just vanished in thin air

India has strongly condemned the killing of a minority Sikh youth in Peshawar, Pakistan. India appealed to Pakistan to stop lying and take immediate action to punish the culprits of this heinous act. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said that Pakistan should work to protect the minorities in its country rather than preaching to other countries.

“India calls upon the Government of Pakistan to stop prevaricating and take immediate action to apprehend and give exemplary punishment to the perpetrators of these heinous acts,” the MEA said.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old Sikh youth was killed by unknown persons in Peshawar, Pakistan. The body of the youth has been recovered from the area under the Chamkani police station. Peshawar Operation SSP said that the youth had been identified as Ravinder Singh. The SSP said that the police were investigating the incident.

Ravinder Singh was the brother of a journalist, Harmeet Singh, Pakistan’s first Sikh journalist in electronic media. Singh hailed from Shangla in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and lived in Malaysia. He had travelled to Pakistan for his wedding and was in Peshawar for shopping.

A case of stone-pelting had been reported at Nankana Sahib Gurdwara 48 hours before the murder of the Sikh youth. According to media reports, the family of a certain Mohammad Hasan, who allegedly abducted a Sikh girl from Nankana town and converted her for marriage, led the attack. The granthi of Nankana Sahib Gurdwara has alleged that some men abducted his daughter at gunpoint and then forced her to marry Hasan.

India on Friday condemned the vandalism at the holy Nankana Sahib gurdwara in Pakistan and called on the neighboring country to take immediate steps to ensure the safety of Sikhs there. The foreign ministry said in a statement, “India strongly condemns the antics of sabotage and indecency at this holy place.”
