Amritsar, October 10

Gobind Singh Longowal, SGPC president, has sought strict action against guilty West Bengal police officials for "pulling" the turban and disrespecting the 'kesh' and religious symbols of Balwinder Singh, a Sikh policeman, during a BJP march at Howrah in Kolkata yesterday.

Expressing displeasure at the incident, Longowal said such incidents were recurring in the country.

He asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to issue guidelines to all state governments to ensure respect to all religious symbols of the Sikh community. In a strongly worded statement, he said pulling off the turban and holding a Sikh man from hair amounted to desecration of his religious symbols. — TNS
