Former Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) president Bishan Singh has demanded strict action against those involved in the desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib in Punjab.
While talking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, he condemned the incidents of sacrilege saying there was a need for stringent laws against the acts of sacrilege on the pattern of those in Pakistan.
Bishan Singh, who is leading a jatha of Sikhs from Pakistan to India to pay obeisance at various gurdwaras, said both Indian and Pakistani prime ministers should take an initiative to improve relations between the neighbouring countries.
He also demanded relaxation in visa norms for those wanting to visit Gurdwara Nankana Sahib, Kartarpur Sahib and other gurdwaras in Pakistan. He said Sikhs were living peacefully with Muslims and Hindus in Pakistan.
Bishan Singh said the 92-member jatha would visit various places in India and celebrate Diwali here. The jatha members paid obeisance at Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib here.
