Wife of kidnapped Afghan Sikh seeks PM Modi’s help

Narendra Modi, Prime Minister

New Delhi, June 26

The wife of a Sikh kidnapped in Afghanistan has sought PM Narendra Modi’s intervention for freeing him and granting Indian citizenship to his family of six.

Attacks on Sikh minorities in Afghanistan have increased ever since India cast its lot with the Kabul regime in the ongoing peace talks with the Taliban. The kidnapped Sikh, Nidan Singh, had moved to India when the Taliban gained ascendancy in the early 90s. It is not clear how and by whom he was asked to return and man

Gurdwara Tala Sahib in Afghanistan’s Paktia province near the border with Pakistan. Living there with his wife and five children, Nidan was abducted earlier this week. — TNS
