Members of Jammu and Kashmir Sikh council staged a protest here on Monday over the Saharanpur violence.
The protest was held near Nanak Nagar gurdwara and the demonstrators raised slogans against the Uttar Pradesh government.
Harmohinder Singh, president of Jammu and Kashmir Sikh Council said, “We condemn Saharanpur’s incident, this tiff between the two communities is a result of a conspiracy and the culprit behind it should be revealed. We appeal to both the communities to maintain communal peace.”
On Sunday, Sikh protesters had taken to the streets in New Delhi, terming the clashes in Saharanpur as a conspiracy against the minorities.
On Saturday morning, violent clashes had erupted in Saharanpur amongst two groups who reportedly clashed over a patch of disputed land close to the city's railway station.
District magistrate of Saharanpur, Sandhya Tiwari, had on Sunday indicated that the situation in the area was returning towards normalcy and claimed that no new instance of violence had occurred since it all started on Saturday.
