A protest by group of about 200 people occurred outside of Sri Sis Ganj Sahib, the place where 9th Guru sacrificed himself to save the Hindu religion from the Mughals. The group chanted slogans and carried the Indian Flag.
The act was condemned by Sikh leaders including Sukhbir Singh Badal and Manjit Singh GK. Sukhbir Badal in a press conference advised the BJP leadership to not create an environment for any kind of communal problem. He appealed that the BJP Cadre should not protest outside of a religious place.
′′ If Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Ji had not been martyred, you also would not have said Jai Shri Ram “, Sardar Manjit Singh JiK gave advice to alleged nationalists who were hooliganizing outside Gurdwara Sisganj Sahib Ji.
He further elaborated:
Manjit Singh GK stated that the mob who came at Sri Sis Ganj should understand that if there wasn’t Gurdwara Sis Ganj sahib then the Hindu would not have the sacred thread around their necks.
