5 October 2013:

A mob reportedly attacked the Gurdwara Nanak Darbar, Vijay Nagar, Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) and set the Gurudwara on fire causing major damage. All glass windows and furniture have been destroyed in the fire that was set by the mob. The care takers of the Gurudwara were beaten badly and received injuries.

It is being reported that rising tensions after the Indian Government's approval to form the new state of Telangana have resulted in widespread disorder in the region.

According to witnesses at the scene, the attack appeared to have been thoroughly planned. DSGMC member Paramjeet Singh Rana contacted police from Delhi following which the Viskhapatnam DCP sent a Police contingent to safeguard the Gurdwara Sahib. It has been reported that a rumala sahib was burnt and the Granthi Singh Bhai Sardar Jasveer Singh managed to save the Saroop of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, although witnesses are saying it did receive minor damage. The cause of the attack has not yet been determined.

Total damage has not yet been assessed but the Police have reportedly controlled the situation now after DSGMC officials contacted the state Government asking for immediate response of police.

Do we have leaders?
Sikhism is passing through a phase of leaderless period.
Badal is a Chief Minister of Punjab, Avtar Singh is leader of a sleeping eminent "Sikh Representatives" elected by Sikh voters for jointly working in an assembly for Sikh affairs called, SGPC, and Manmohan Singh is alien to Sikh affairs. NON OF THESE CARE A DAMN FOR SIKH WELFARE.Whom do we call Sikh leadership. There is NONE. It is a vacuum. And sans leaders WE ARE DRIFTING.
On You tube "Tatpunjias" who call themselves "Professor". or "Well informed in Religions of the world"
, attack Sikhism. Is that not the job for SGPC, to tame these idiots,worthless persons?
