Amritsar, July 29, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has demanded from the governments of India and Afghanistan to ensure the safety of Sikhs living in Afghanistan.

SGPC chief secretary Advocate Harjinder Singh Dhami in a press statement issued from his office on Thursday said that the declining number of Sikhs in Afghanistan is a matter of grave concern which the Government of India should take seriously and make efforts to ensure the security and safety of life and property of the Sikhs living there.

“Earlier there were lakhs of Sikhs living in Afghanistan but now their number is very limited. The reason is a sense of insecurity. The Sikhs were facing many difficulties in Afghanistan.

There have been two major racial attacks on Sikhs in Afghanistan in the recent past. Many were killed, including leaders of the Sikh community. That is why the Sikhs of Afghanistan are terrified and governments have a responsibility to ensure their safety”, said SGPC chief secretary Harjinder Singh Dhami.

Dhami said that wherever the Sikhs resided in the country and the world, they worked hard for the progress and prosperity there.

“Following the teachings of the Gurus, the Sikhs carried on the tradition of cooperation with everyone. The Sikh community seeks the welfare of all humanity, but sadly injustice is being done to the Sikhs in Afghanistan. I appeal to the Government of India to address the problems faced by the Sikhs living in Afghanistan. SGPC will also write a letter to the Government of India in this regard”, said SGPC chief secretary Harjinder Singh Dhami.
