    January, 23, Dera Ismail Khan:
    A Sikh was gunned down by unidentified men in Tangi Bazaar, Charsadda in the evening. Tangi police official Noorullah said Bhagwan Singh, son of Ashar Singh and resident of Dabgari, owned a medicine shop in the bazaar for many years and had no dispute with anyone. Bhagwan was on his way home at around 4pm when two armed men approached and opened fire, killing him on the spot.

    “It has not yet been ascertained whether the assailants were on foot or in a vehicle,” the official said. “We cannot say at the moment if he was gunned down by militants, or if it was because of a personal feud.”

    The body was shifted to DHQ hospital for an autopsy, after which it was taken to his hometown of Peshawar.

    Not just Pakistan Gyani ji! Afghan Sikhs are going through the same thing in Afghanistan. It is a terrible thing to see many Afghan and Pakistani Sikhs flee their own homeland to be safer. Hopefully Sikhi presence remains strong there for both countries.

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!
