Protests continue in Punjab over alleged sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib
Tarn Taran, Oct 17 (ANI): Protests in Tarn Taran village of Punjab has escalated over the alleged sacrilege of Sikh holy book even as the two persons killed in a clash with police two days back were cremated amid tight security. On Monday, more than 100 pages were reportedly found scattered on a street that led to a local Sikh temple, which the Sikh leaders claimed to be torn from a copy of the Holy Scripture, Guru Granth Sahib, that was allegedly stolen earlier. Violence broke out in Punjab’s Kotkapura city on October 14 after Sikh protesters and police clashed, where reports of stone pelting by the protestors and counter baton charge and open firing by the police came to fore. Sikh groups have since been staging demonstrations and blocking roads at several places in protest.
