    Sikhs won't take nonsense, especially on the issues of religion.

    Pakistanis should never forget that!

    The actual transfer of power to India and Pakistan proved to be bloody and bitter. Some people have described it as one of the ten great tragedies of the 20th century. The estimated loss of life during the partition of India is one million. Besides, 14-18 million people were forced to cross the international border in search of safe havens.

    For the Punjab alone, the loss of life is estimated somewhere between 500,000-800,000 and 10 million people were forced to flee for their lives. More importantly, after World War II the first case of ethnic cleansing took place in the Punjab. Therefore, it bore the brunt of the partition violence. Thus at the end of 1947 all traces of a Muslim presence in the Indian East Punjab were wiped out, except for some Muslims remaining in the tiny princely state of Malerkotla (total population 88,000). In the Pakistani West Punjab, Hindus and Sikhs became conspicuous by their absence.

    If it was Koran being desecrated then we would have seen killings of the accused instantly without any trial or court.

    But here it was the holy book of Kafirs.

    Violence in Indian Punjab as Sikhs protest over desecration of their holy book

    FARIDKOT - Members of several Sikh groups protesting against the alleged desecration of their holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, clashed with police in Faridkot district of Punjab on Wednesday, leaving at least 15 people injured. 12 cops, including Bathinda inspector general of police Jitendra Jain, were among those injured.

    Police used batons and water cannons and fired in the air to disperse members of the Sikh groups who gathered in Kotkapura of Faridkot district early on Wednesday to protest the act of sacrilege in Bargari village. Several policemen were among the injured. The clash erupted in the main square of Kotkapura when police tried to arrest the leaders of the protestors. The protestors also tried to block highways leading to Moga and Bathinda towns.

    The situation in Faridkot district is tense but under control, officials said. A strong police contingent has been deployed in the area to maintain law and order. Indian Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and his deputy Sukhbir Singh Badal appealed to the people to maintain calm. The chief minister said those found guilty would not be spared. Kotkapura has been tense since more than 100 pages of the Guru Granth Sahib were found scattered in a street leading to a gurdwara in Bargari on Monday. The pages were allegedly torn from a ‘bir’ or copy of the Guru Granth Sahib that was stolen from Burj Jawahar Singh Wala village, located 5 km from Bargari, in June.

    Tension flared on Tuesday when hundreds of Sikhs assembled for a protest at the main square of Kotkapura, 12 km from Faridkot, after police rounded up more than 200 people. Sources said that police rounded up the people to prevent radical Sikh leaders from organising an ‘akhand paath’ – reading of religious scriptures – at the spot with the torn pages from Bargari village.

    Prominent Sikh preachers Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwala and Panthpreet Singh Khalsa, former Takht Damdama Sahib jathedar Giani Kewal Singh, Damdami Taksal Ajnala head Amrik Singh Ajnala and radical Sikh leader Baljit Singh Daduwal participated in a dharna to protest against the alleged desecration.
