Following remarks were shared by a Sikh24 reader –
“RSS/Modi gang/Hindu agencies are directly responsible for this and Longowal as well as Badal or both complicit in this. After Harmandir Sahib’s historic destruction in the name of making it a “tourist spot with VIP lounges ” this dastardly act is a part of the series which aims to destroy Sikh history, culture and identity. The recent attacks on Sikhs in Haryana, Rudarpur and preventing Sikhs from giving exams with their articles of faith or all being done at the behest of Hindu agencies under RSS/Modi.”
