Gurudwara Nankana Sahib Attacked And Anti-Sikhism Slogans Shouted In Pakistan

Gurudwara Nankana Sahib in Pakistan came under attack on Friday. According to initial reports, hundreds of angry people surrounded the iconic gurudwara and started pelting stones at the devotees inside. Nankana Sahib was the birthplace of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.

It was said that the group attacking the gurudwara was led by a family whose boy abducted the daughter of a gurudwara official from her home and forcibly converted her to Islam. Jagjit Kaur was abducted from her home in Nankana Sahib in August last year.

Another report told that the scuffle was the result of a minor altercation between two Muslim groups in the city of Nankana Sahib. It happened at a tea-stall but the district administration swung into action and controlled the situation.

India condemns the incident

Punjab CM Amarinder Singh appealed Pakistan PM Imran Khan to intervene and assure the safety of the devotees stuck inside the iconic gurudwara. Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa also tweeted to condemn the wanton act of destruction.

US Strikes Again: Iraq Braves Another Air Strike Hour Ahead Of Funeral Procession Of Soleimani

A fresh air strike ahead took place hours after the precision drone strike by the US in Baghdad on Friday. The earlier strike killed Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi paramilitary heavyweight Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

Elaborate mourning procession

A procession was planned to take the bodies of the slain military leaders for a state funeral in Baghdad and to the holy shrine city of Najaf.

In a dramatic escalation of tension between Washington and Tehran, top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and seven others were killed in a US strike on international airport of Baghdad on Friday, said the powerful Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force of Iraq.

US strike killed prominent figures

Deputy chief of Hashed, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, was also killed in the attack along with the head of Quds Force, Qasem Soleimani. On Friday, the Baghdad airport was hit with a volley of missiles just after midnight. The bombardment targeted a Hashed convoy in which eight people including important figures were seated. They all were said to have been killed in the attack.

Hashed
