Mehtab Singh Ji,

Why are you helping perpetuate this false GOI-Hindu propoganda against Pakistan?
Please check your facts before promoting this stuff.

Pro-Hinduvata forces are spending a lot of money writing such mis-information and producing such videos to create un-needed tensions between Sikh and Muslims.

Only naive Sikhs will fall for this propoganda. Sikhs should not forget it was Hindus who have over the last 60 years attacked, burned, and looted their Gurdwaras, not Muslims.

Despite what you hear from GOI agencies, Gurdwaras in Pakistan have NOT been taken over (nor attacked, burned, and looted) by Muslims.

Indian Media Shamelessly sensationalizes false stories
(Op/Ed)

San Francisco, California (KP) – The situation that arose after Gurmeet Ram Rahim tried to mimic Guru Gobind Singh Ji left Punjab and neighboring states in a tense situation. While the Sikh nation is deeply hurt, the Indian media is working to create even more tensions for the Sikhs.

For the Indian media this type of underhanded reporting is not new and has been prevalent ever since the foundations for the country were laid down.

Gurdwara Bhai Taru Singh, Lahore

Although an explicit list of incidents could be noted in a chronological timetable to describe how the Indian media is committed to portray the Sikhs in a negative light, deliberation on a few recent incidents would prove the point. The recently published story of Muslims occupying a Gurdwara Sahib in Pakistan is a prime example.

The news that was highlighted by several newspapers in India as well as TV channels stated that a Gurdwara Sahib built in the memory of Bhai Taru Singh Ji has been forcefully occupied by the local Muslims. It was reported that access to the area has been blocked for the Sikhs and now the Muslims Namazis perform their daily prayers there. When a delegation of Sikhs from Delhi visited the Gurdwara Sahib to confirm the news story, they found that the Gurdwara Sahib is intact and no changes have been made to the structure. This was confirmed by a member of the delegation named Kuldeep Singh, an associate of the DSGMC, who first visited this shrine back in 1964.

Kuldeep Singh, who has been visiting Pakistan regularly, commended the Pakistan Government and local Muslims for allowing the Sikhs in the country to live peacefully. He said that provisions have been provided to the Pakistan Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee to renovate the centuries old buildings. He said that the Pakistan Government held strong ties with local Sikhs and was working hard to allow easy access to many of the Gurdwara Sahibs located throughout the country.

The incident is also a prime example of the way the Sikh leadership works. Avtar Singh Makkar, president of the SGPC, lashed out at the Pakistan Government regarding this story, without even confirming the incident. This proves how the SGPC President is not interested in communicating with his Pakistan counterpart on these issues.
