India Cultural Centre of Canada and Gurdwara Nanak Niwas, 8600, #5 Road, Richmond’s Management Committee and congregation have been extremely disappointed and pained to learn about the disrespect shown towards Shri Guru Granth Sahib in the Punjab province of India and strongly condemn this disgusting action of the perpetrators .
As a result of this disrespect towards Shri Guru Granth Sahib in various places in the Punjab, there were numerous peaceful protests throughout the state. Unfortunately, as a result of police firing on these protesters, two persons lost their lives. India Cultural Centre of Canada, Gurdwara Nanak Niwas Management Committee and congregation strongly condemn these actions and expect the provincial government to apprehend the perpetrators of these abhorrent activities and have them face the consequences of their behaviour. At the same time, this Society, this place of worship, its Management Committee and congregation urge the Punjab government not to harass and punish the innocent people. We pray for peace, stability and prosperity for the people of Punjab and India.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of India Cultural Centre of Canada, Gurdwara Nanak Niwas Management Committee and congregation.
