In an incident that has caused international outcry and also hurt the sentiments of Sikhs across the world, a Pakistani Sikh police officer Gulab Singh alleged that he was forcibly evicted from his house in Lahore.
The police officer said that not only was he evicted from his home in Dera Chahal but that his turban was also forced open and he was dragged by hair.
It need be mentioned that minorities in Pakistan and Afghanistan have been targeted recently.
“This is how Sikhs are treated in Pakistan. I am being targeted. I was dragged out of my own house, my turban was pulled off”, he said.
Singh went to the extent of claiming that the government wants to forcefully evict the Sikh community from the country.
Singh was forced out of his house by officials of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), the parent body of Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) following a property dispute, it was reported.
Singh claimed that this was because he had revealed the wrongdoings of the PSGPC president Tara Singh along with Indian Sikh fugitives who had collected donations of Rs 10 to Rs 15 crore from the Sikhs of UK, USA, Canada etc on the name of development of Bebe Nanki Gurdwara but didn’t spend a single penny.>
