    A minority Sikh member of the provincial Assembly of Punjab in Pakistan on Tuesday met the Akal Takht jathedar at the Golden Temple here and requested him to visit the neighbouring country at the earliest to take stock of the problems faced by the Sikh community there.

    Ramesh Singh Arora, a minority quota member of the Provincial Assembly in Pakistan, met Giani Gurbachan Singh and apprised him of the problems being faced by Sikhs in Pakistan as regards matters concerning the running of gurdwaras.

    He said the jathedar had agreed to visit Pakistan along with the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee preachers who would help Pakistani Sikhs learn about Sikh rituals and literature.

    Arora said it was neither possible nor feasible for each Sikh in Pakistan to visit India due to strict visa norms. In such circumstances, the SGPC preachers should visit Pakistan more frequently, he added.
    Arora became the first Sikh in 67 years to enter Pakistan's biggest provincial Assembly.

    A renowned social worker and leader of the Sikh community in Pakistan, Arora said he had come to India with a mission to use the shared religious linkages to further peace and trade between the two countries.

    The Pakistan government had appointed Arora as a member of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee
