    Land belonging to Hindu, Sikh shrines targeted in Pakistan

    Another incident of acquisition of land belonging to Hindu and Sikh shrines in Pakistan has come to light, and Pakistan authorities have been approached by minorities to take this issue seriously.

    According to the News, a delegation headed by Pakistan Hindu Sikh Social Welfare Council President Jag Mohan Arora approached Pakistan Evacuee Trust Property Board Chairman Syed Asif Hashmi to apprise him about the illegal occupation of a cemetery ground and demolition of temple in front of Rawalpindi Medical College.

    The delegation urged Hashmi to take personal interest and help resolve the problems of the minority community.

    Though Hashmi has assured the delegates to resolve the issue, there have been allegations against the Pakistan Evacuee Trust Property Board that it had illegally sold off land belonging to Sikh shrines to the Pakistani army at absurdly low prices.

    Arora has also summoned a meeting of the Pakistan Hindu Sikh Social Welfare Council to chalk out the line of action regarding the issue.

    Earlier, taking note of an illegal deal of a land belonging to a gurdwara in Pakistan, federal Minority Minister Shahbaz Bhatti had ordered an inquiry.
    Bhatti had said that after the investigation, action would be taken against the culprits.

    "Even if it was found that any high official was involved and proved guilty, he would not be allowed to escape from law," Bhatti had said. (ANI)

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!
