    Ludhiana, April 27: Tension gripped Meena Bazaar this afternoon following incidents of some people who reportedly tried to demolish a gurdwara to set up a mosque.

    In his complaint to Division Number 4 police, Kuldeep Singh, president of Meena Bazaar Shopkeepers’ Association, said that on the night of April 26, Iqraar Ali, Pillar and some other people of the area demolished the gurdwara in the market. “A tree on the premises of the gurdwara was chopped and the Guru Granth Sahib was removed from its place,” Singh said.
    Ludhiana Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Manjit Singh Dhesi reached the spot and tried to pacify the people gathered there.
    Representatives of various bodies including Pawan Garg of Shiv Sena Bal Thackeray, Swarn Singh of Akalgarh Market Association and Kuldeep Singh of Meena Bazaar Shopkeepers’ Association had gathered at the spot. Meanwhile, police have booked Iqraar Ali, Pillar and others for hurting the religious sentiments of the people and demolishing the structure.

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!
