    25 Sikh families return home in Orakzai agency

    Peshawar, Oct 27 (PTI)
    Twenty-five Sikh families today returned to their homes in the violence-hit Orakzai Agency of northwest Pakistan amidst reports that members of the minority community were reluctant to go back to the tribal region.

    The Sikh families, who were escorted by officials of the political administration and security forces, returned to the Utmankhel and Feroze Khel areas of Orakzai Agency, which has witnessed an upsurge in violence since last week.

    The Political Agent of Orakzai Agency, Riaz Khan Mehsud, and the Pakistan Army's local commander, Col Habib-ur-Rehman, received the Sikh families in Chamjana area.

    Forty more Sikh families will be repatriated soon, an official told PTI.

    A delegation from the Sikh community has asked authorities to make arrangements for their safe return, officials said.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
