The Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday condemned reported vandalism of a gurudwara in Canada’s Calagry city. He urged the Modi government to come out with a comprehensive policy for the protection of Sikhs living abroad.

Capt accused the Indian government for its failure to protect the Sikhs living in other countries. He said that the government had not only failed to raise the issue at the proper global forums but also did not have a strong internal policy to ensure the protection of Sikhs despite the spike in such incidents since the 9/11 New York attacks.

He also urged the Center to take up the latest incident with the Canadian government on priority basis and ensure that the culprits are brought to book and awarded exemplary punishment to act as a deterrent to similar acts of destruction of religious properties in the future. Punjab Congress chief said, the message needs to go out that the Sikh community living abroad is not alone and has the full backing of the Indian government.
