    Delegation of displaced Sikhs travels to Orakzai

    Peshawar, Oct 13 (PTI) A delegation of the minority Sikh community has travelled to the restive Orakzai tribal region of northwest Pakistan to assess the security situation in the area and condition of their homes which they had abandoned after the military launched an operation against the local Taliban.

    The delegation, which was escorted to Orakzai by officials of the local administration, comprised elders of 58 Sikh families.

    Official sources told PTI that the Sikh elders would bring their families back to their native areas after reviewing the situation on the ground and ascertaining whether their houses were intact.

    Scores of Sikh families in Orakzai Agency were displaced due to the operation launched by security forces against Taliban and al-Qaeda operatives.

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!
