Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee today strongly condemned the beheading of Sikhs in Pakistan and asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take up the matter with his counterpart in Pakistan.
SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar told PTI, "The SGPC and entire Sikh community strongly condemns the brutal murder of Sikhs at Peshawar in Pakistan by Taliban."
He asked the Prime Minister to take up the matter with Pakistan government and ask it to provide adequate security to the minority Sikh community as they were not safe in Pakistan.
He also demanded that the prime minister make immediate arrangements for an SGPC delegation to visit Pakistan to take stock of the situation.
Makkar said the SGPC firmly stood with the Sikhs living in Peshawar and all over Pakistan and was always ready to extend all possible help to them.
