The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has demanded immediate action against Pakistan’s religious leader Khadim Hussain Rizvi, who has hurt the sentiments of the Sikhs with his remarks against Guru Nanak and Kartarpur gurdwara.

Addressing a press meet here on Thursday, DSGMC chief Manjinder Singh Sirsa said the offensive speech by Rizvi had deeply anguished the Sikh community.

Sirsa said the words were totally unforgivable, especially the comparison he made between Kartarpur Sahib and Madina. Rizvi also abused Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Sirsa said, adding that people like him incite mobs to decimate heritage sites and statues.

He requested PM Imran Khan to order action against him and said a case against hate-mongers like him would show everyone that the country believes in harmony and world peace. —TNS
