India and Pakistan are both unsafe for Sikhs, says Akal Takht Jathedar

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—Condemning the recent incident of mob attack on Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan Nankana Sahib, the SGPC appointed Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh has said that the Sikhs were not safe in India as well as in Pakistan. He added that the some recent incidents have raised fear in the minds of Sikhs living in India and Pakistan.

Recalling hardships being faced by Sikhs in India, Giani Harpreet Singh said that the Sikhs are facing eviction in Shillong (Meghalaya) as well as in Madhya Pradesh.

“Similar circumstances are there for Sikhs in Pakistan, where they are receiving death threats. In such a situation, we have no hope of justice from any government. Sikhs should stay united to face these things,” he said.


  1. Indeed great crimes have been committed by Indian government against Sikh community.
    It is Wrong to tarnish Pakistan with the same label due to odd minor incidents of personal nature.
    Pakistan’s government has made an example of taking care of minorities especially Sikh. In the British Partition gate injustice was done with Sikhs. They were relocated to India and Punjab was divided with their religious shrines separated from majority of the population.
    There are many Sikh heritage building in Pakistan which fell into wrong hands and should be returned to Sikh trusts for their protection. Same should also be done with Hindus and Buddha shrines.
