India Lodges Protest with Pakistan over Conversion of Gurdwara into Mosque

India has lodged a “strong protest” with Pakistan over attempts to convert Lahore Gurdwara into a mosque.

According to NDTV, India’s foreign ministry issued a statement to the Pakistan High Commission on Monday protesting the move.

Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman Anurag Srivastava said Gurdwara Shahidi Asthan in Lahore is being claimed as Shahidganj Mosque. Some people are trying to convert the historic Gurdwara into a mosque.

India expressed its concerns in strongest terms on this incident.

Manjinder Singh, a spokesman for the Shiromani Akali Dal, has called for justice for the Sikh minority in Pakistan. He tweeted urging Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to take action against “extremists”.

Pak extremists want to obliterate this Shaheedi Sthaan completely. This is against basic human rights, Sirsa tweeted. 

He also urged Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to take immediate action regarding this.

The Gurdwara is a historical shrine where Bhai Taru Singh sustained fatal injuries in 1745.
