    Pak Army grabs Sikh Gurudwara land
    Zeenews Bureau

    Islamabad: In a breaking news development, the Pakistan Army has reportedly grabbed the land here meant for the construction of Sikh Gurudwaras.


    The minority community here is distraught as the Army sold off 150 acres of land that belongs to the Sikhs of Lahore, as per a latest media report.

    Reports also state that the land, which was allegedly sold cheaply to Pak defence authorities, is actually worth millions of rupees. The Sikh community is planning to retaliate by appealing in a court of law to step in and prevent the ‘illegal’ land grab.

    However, the chairman of Pakistan’s Evacuee Trust, Asif Hashmi, while confirming the sale, decried reports stating that the land belongs to any individual or the Gurudwara Deh in Lahore.

    The sale violates Pakistan’s law on selling religious land. Meanwhile, the SGPC in India is said to have contacted President Asif Ali Zardari asking for his direct intervention in the case.

    nothing belongs to anyone in pakistan. the military controls majority of anything that is profitable. the military industrial complex is all that remains in pakistan. might is right

    it is a lawless state

    Zardari has no power nor does he have any swing in the matters that concerns the small minorities of his country.

    the apeals will be rather fruitless if you ask me. lets see what happens

    There are so many places-I have wandered through them all.
    The masters of wealth and the great land-lords have fallen, crying out, "This is mine! This is mine!" ||2||


    They issue their commands fearlessly, and act in pride.
    They subdue all under their command, but without the Name, they are reduced to dust. ||3||
