India questions the decision of Kartarpur management transferred to Muslim Body
The Indian Ministry of External Affairs issued a strong protest in a release and said, 'Pakistan's unilateral decision is against the religious sentiments of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor and the Sikh community at large
New Delhi: Pakistan's Imran Khan government has taken over the maintenance of the Kartarpur Gurdwara (Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib) from the Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhan Committee and given it to Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB).
Gurdwara responsibility to Muslim Body:
The unit is headed by Tariq Khan and has a total of 9 members, while none of them are Sikhs. India has strongly condemned this decision of the Pakistan government.
Indian Ministry comments on this decision:
The Indian Ministry of External Affairs issued a strong protest in a release and said, 'Pakistan's unilateral decision is against the religious sentiments of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor and the Sikh community at large.' The Foreign Ministry said, "Such actions only reveal the reality of the Pakistani government and its leadership, who make long claims for the protection of the rights and welfare of minority communities."
India demand to change Pak's decision:
India has asked Pakistan to change its arbitrary decision, which deprives the Sikh community of the right to manage the affairs of the Holy Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib. Foreign Ministry spokesman Anurag Shrivastava said, 'It is a wrong decision to manage Kartarpur with the Sikh community. We demand that Pakistan immediately withdraw this decision for Kartarpur Sahib.
"We have seen reports about Pakistan transferring the management and maintenance of the Holy Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib away from the Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabhandhak Committee, a body run by the minority Sikh Community, to the administrative control of the Evacuee Trust Property Board, a non-Sikh body," the MEA said.
