New Delhi (KP) — A New Delhi Sikh was attacked by neighbors and the Saroop of Guru Granth Sahib in his house was thrown out in the street after the landlord evicted the Sikh’s family from their second floor apartment in the State Bank Colony near Gurdwara Nanak Pio Sahib.
The Sikh’s apartment had already been emptied due to the eviction but Guru Maharaj’s Saroop had not been moved due to a family emergency. But before this Sikh tenant could bring five Singhs to retrieve the Saroop, the Landlord, Ravi Singal removed the Saroop from the premises and tossed Guru Sahib in the street. The builder, along with nearby neighbors, also physically attacked the Sikh, leaving him battered and bruised.
As the local Sangat found out about this attack, hundreds of Sikhs gathered around the complex, and respectively removed the Sacred Saroop of Guru Sahib. Along with members of the Delhi Sikh Gurdawara Management Committee, they attempted to pressure the local Police to register a FIR complaint against the landlord and local neighbors. The Police declined to take such action against both.
After the Police inaction, hundreds of Sikh youth took it upon themselves to punish the perpetrators and ransacked the builder’s property during the late evening.
Sikhs this is an attack on our Guru Maharaaj and fellow sikh brothers and sisters we must not stand for this, take action immeditaely.
