Amritsar, July 1, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Bibi Jagir Kaur has strongly condemned the grenade attack targeting the minority Sikh community in Jalalabad, Afghanistan and demanded from the Government of India to talk with the Government of Afghanistan and ensure the safety of the life and property of Sikhs there.
In a statement issued from the SGPC office on Thursday, Bibi Jagir Kaur said, “The Sikh faith seeks the welfare of all mankind. Due to such attacks, some forces are trying to intimidate and spread fear among the Sikhs. Earlier also a group of Sikh leaders had been targeted in Afghanistan and several top leaders of the Sikh community there had been killed and Gurdwara Sahib in Kabul had also been attacked in which many Sikhs had lost their lives.”
Bibi Jagir Kaur said thousands of Sikhs have migrated from Afghanistan due to insecurity.
“I appeal to the Government of India to engage with the governments of countries all over the world to make the safety of life and property of Sikhs imperative. Appropriate steps should be taken by the Centre government to ensure the safety of Sikhs in Afghanistan as a matter of priority”, said SGPC president Bibi Jagir Kaur.
She also prayed for the recovery of Sikhs injured in the attack in Afghanistan.
