Pakistan's first-ever Sikh police officer evicted from home, alleges turban untied


LAHORE, 10 JULY. Pakistan's first-ever Sikh police officer, Gulab Singh, alleged on Tuesday that he had been forcefully evicted from his Lahore house and that his turban had been untied.

Alleging that treatment being meted out in Pakistan to people from the Sikh community is deplorable, Singh said that he had been evicted from his house in city's Dera Chahal by local police officials and his turban was forcefully opened and hair untied. "This is how Sikhs are treated in Pakistan. I am being targeted. I was dragged out of my own house, my turban was opened," he charged.

In a video, Singh was also seen pleading with police officials to give him time to move out of his residence. "At least give us ten minutes, we are staying here since 1947," he can be heard saying. He also claims he was given no notice or reason for the eviction.

There have even been reports in the past that the country's secret service - ISI - is specifically targetting Sikh youths and training them to carry out terrorist activities in India. Religious leaders have been targeted while forceful conversions are reportedly becoming increasingly frequent.

According to a report by TOI, Gulab Singh alleged that ETPB secretary Tariq Wazir had allegedly thrashed him. The report also quoted Singh saying alleging that PSGPC president Tara Singh along with Indian Sikh fugitives currently taking shelter in Pakistan. He informed that they 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.
