Stop attacks on Sikhs in US, Pakistan: Punjab MPs

Members of Parliament from Punjab on Tuesday voiced their anguish in Rajya Sabha over alleged repeated attacks on Sikhs in United States and Pakistan. They asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take up the matter to ensure their safety and security.
Raising the matter during Zero Hour, Shiromani Akali Dal's Balwinder Singh Bhunder said Sikh minorities in US and Pakistan were being assaulted and many of them have been murdered due to hate crimes. He demanded that the Prime Minister should take up the matter with the two countries and ensure they get protection.
He also raised the issue of citizenship not granted to Afghan Sikhs coming to India. Bhunder said Sikhs were a brave community and had taken part in many freedom struggles and sacrificed their lives and their protection needs to be ensured. These hate crimes should stop, he said.
