PAKISTAN: Extremists threaten to remove building of Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—In Pakistan, the activists of Dawat-e-Islami (Barelvi) and Peer Shah Kaku Chishti’s tomb have pasted posters outside Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh threatening Sikhs to remove the Gurdwara building. These posters have been printed in Shahmukhi i.e. a dialect of Punjabi.

In a separate video released by Suhail Butt Attari, who has been conspiring to take over 4-5 canals piece of land adjacent to Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh, and his supporters have said that Pakistan was meant for Muslims only and they won’t allow construction of Gurdwaras in Pakistan. They have also mentioned the names of Punjabi Sikh Sangat’s chairman Gopal Singh Chawla and Bhai Fauja Singh in their video.

They have claimed that the land of Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh and Gurdwara Singh Singhnia belongs to the tomb of Peer Shah Kaku Chishti and Shaheed Ganj mosque respectively.

“The Sikhs would have to present evidence about the martyrdom of Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh before coming to pay obeisance at Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh,” they said while adding that the whole land of Pakistan belongs to Muslims.  

Meanwhile, the Evacuee Trust Property Board’s officials and PSGPC leaders are tightlipped due to which there is a sharp outrage among Pakistani Sikhs as their silence can prove dangerous for the existence of Gurdwara Shaheed Bhai Taru Singh.
